This post is from the afternoon trip back up river and the other sights along the way. The boat arrived about noon at London Bridge and we went to go eat lunch and shop until the boat headed back about 2:00pm. One of … Continue reading i’m leaving on a Jet Boat…

We really thought we would be finished making and installing three weeks ago but we missed that target (life and mother nature always have other plans). Sunday turned out to be a quiet day so we got back at it and not only did Alice finish the third Roman shade, we also recovered … Continue reading in search of Romanesque shades part 4
