New Blinds!

The many beauties of Laurelhurst Park

Dear Liza,

When we bought our new home here in Portland, we loved many things about it.

The location, in a neighborhood full of restaurants and pinball games, and right next to beautiful Laurelhurst Park, was perfect.

The size, big enough for three but small enough to be cozy, was perfect.

The compact, pretty kitchen, where there is room to make everything but tiny enough to clean easily, is perfect.

The only drawback was the window blinds. They had been installed twelve years ago when the place was new. Since this had been a vacation home, they hadn’t gotten much use. Now that they were getting raised and lowered everyday, they were falling apart.

Last month we drove by Bolliger Windows, up on Broadway, and had a look at their selection. We made an appointment for Shelly to come today and measure our windows and decide which kinds will work best for us.

This past week, Steve came by to install them. Because of a communication issue, he was one short, but I have faith that that will be resolved.

We are loving our new blinds. They can be down from the top or up from the bottom, or anywhere in between. Since our windows are right across from our neighbors’, this gives us all some much needed privacy.

Love, Grandma Judy
