Celebrating St Patrick’s Day this coming weekend will be Green Everywhere. We’ll see green beer, Leprechauns, 4 leaf clovers, Irish dancers, and people becoming Irish for a day!
What a fun way to celebrate our rite of passage into spring! Everybody enjoying the luck of the Irish in the next week will be fun!
I’m reminded of a little gift I gave my Mom years ago when visiting her on St Patricks Day. It was a little hard rubber figurine of a Leprechaun in a green suit wearing a little hat. When the holiday was over, she placed it in a curio cabinet along with many family treasures. It was always fun to see it sitting on the shelf as a reminder of that day we spent together years ago.
We all have our traditions in celebrating different holidays and family gatherings. We want our homes to look nice, even if only when friends drop by to visit, sharing meals, food or good times. Many of us have wonderful views from our homes, and with the cooler temperatures we’ve been having this winter, it is nice to save on our heating bills by having our blinds covering our windows. Some shadings such as Silhouettes® by Hunter Douglas have insulation abilities with a filtered view at the same time. Seeing the different weather outside with the warmth of your home inside is a bonus with these blinds.
My shadings are in the “down – open” position much of the day. I do raise them totally to capture solar energy when the sun shines in the windows. But when they cover the glass, I want to enjoy the view and warm feeling it provides. Unfortunately, bugs and debris enjoy those things too. When they get stuck inside the openings, it is important to remove them as soon as possible. The Silhouette® blinds along with other shading products, such as Pirouettes®, Nantuckets™, Luminettes®, Soleras™, Vignettes®, Illusions, Shangri-Las, and Allen Roth naturally have these issues.
To keep your blinds and shadings bug and debris free, we invented and manufacture our CamilyWand™ Sticky Bug Removal Tool™. As a long time interior designer and window blind dealer, I saw the frustration people found with insects marring their views after their blinds were hanging in their homes over time. The idea of how to remove bugs from blinds turned into reality many years ago and now our readers have a safe easy solution to the bug removal issue and are very happy they can preserve their views – the CamilyWand™.
We at Camily LLC want you to have a great safe and happy weekend celebrating the Irish with your friends!
