New Sponsor: Windows by Melissa

There's nothing that I love more than fabric and window treatments, and my new sponsor Window Treatments by Melissa is the best of both worlds. Custom window treatments are often extremely expensive (in fact, after a large item like a sofa, drapes are usually my next budget item for a client's room). So I was delighted to find a shop where you can choose a style and size, send in the fabric of your choice (not limited by the selection they have on hand!), and receive well-made window treatments (and pillows!) at an affordable price. Look at some of the pretty pieces they've made (the ribbon trim one comes in-stock - you just choose a ribbon color!):

Plus, the sisters behind the curtain (pun intended) are totally sweet. Each month they give away a portion of their proceeds to people in need.  Here's what Melissa had to say:

Window Treatments by Melissa, LLC is a rapidly growing business that specializes in custom window treatments with a focus on roman shades. We are three sisters running this business who love using our talents and abilities to bring our clients unique window treatments that clothe your naked window. You can learn more about us and our mission on our Facebook page. We love what we do and love our clients. We often do giveaways and coupon codes on our Facebook page to express our appreciation.
At Window Treatments by Melissa we also love a challenge. Many of the things you see in our shop were recreations of items people sent us a picture of and asked if we could recreate. We pride ourselves on being able to recreate something simply by looking at its picture. All of the pictures in this blog post were created simply from a picture. We will accept almost any challenge!
We feel very blessed to be able to use our talents to provide people with affordable and beautiful window treatments. We have chosen to give back to express our appreciation. Each month we select a person or family who is in need and we sponsor them by donating $5 of every order for the month to their cause. You can learn more about this in the "giving" section of our Facebook page. We are interested in hearing about we can help you or someone you know. You can write us at and tell us your story, or tell us about a friend of yours that you think could benefit from our monthly sponsorship.
I've "liked" their Facebook page and they really do offer coupon codes and giveaways, so be sure to do that - and the next time you need to dress up your windows (New Year's Resolutions, anyone?), definitely hit them up! They have great reviews on etsy and I can't wait to order my own roman shade (kitchen and bathroom, anyone?).
