High Tech Shady Solutions

Don’t know about you, but last month was big for me: I was invited to teach Installation Techniques at Custom Home Furnishing Academy  in Roswell, GA. Before you start thinking about how the heck someone in GA knew about me here in Boston, let me share a fun fact: when I decided to embark in this…

Getting the Confusion Confused

If you live in the Northeast part of the country I am pretty sure you are ready for some warmer weather. We simply had a longer than normal winter with temperatures way beyond “acceptable”. Some days were so cold that I was confused….was I indeed in Boston or Siberia? Finally last week brought us the…

Painful Loss

February wasn’t an easy month. Not just because of the freezing temps or the continuous snow fall but for something I took for granted until I lost it…… my computer. I had plans to retire my 2009 Fujitsu laptop by the end of the year. The poor guy was not performing at the same speed…

Create a Fabric Romance

It all started last summer while I was repairing a shade at one of the local Starbuck stores. The phone rang and the male caller asked “do you service residences too? I just saw one of your vans at Starbucks.” The following week I went and met the lady of the house, she gave me…

The Likable Shady Guy

Every January I embark on my time machine and travel back in time to analyze what I did right and what I should do better for the coming year. Despite the fact that 2013 was the best year ever at Shades In Place, I still feel there is room for improvement.

Crazy…I Know

By the time you read this I will be on the road driving my Toyota Prius to Florida for a well deserved vacation. That’s right: driving! Crazy? Yes, but as you know me, I do other crazy things too such as: EMAILS – I reply to emails at 4 a.m. or even at midnight

Regular Touch Ups

  The other day while waiting for my mechanic Jim to do an oil change and rotate tires on my van I came to realize that everything around us needs a little maintenance. Some things require less maintenance like visiting your dentist every six months or rebalancing your 401K once a year. On the other…

Naked Windows

I just replaced my cell phone last month. Not that I was looking forward to it, but because I had to. My older Samsung Droid Charge was acting up, freezing for no reason and really making me frustrated.  So, shopping for a new phone was ….well….a bit challenging to say the least…

I Wanna Be Julie Murphy

You may or may not recall that last month was my 40th birthday. If you don’t I won’t blame you. I too have things more import to remember. Because the BIG day was on Friday the 13th I decided to test my “lucky day” at Fox Wood Casino in CT. I reserved two nights at…

Bruce Willis 4.0

In a couple of days (that’s right, it will be Friday 13th I will be celebrating my 40th birthday! No kidding, life goes by F-A-S-T. Recapping those many moments, I have come to the conclusion that I have a lot in common with Bruce Willis. No, I don’t make millions per job like he does. No,…

An Old-New Tradition

Years ago families would gather in the back yard or on the lake for a cookout. The only way your friends or co-workers would know about your drunk uncle’s fiasco was if you shared a photo or was brave enough to tell your friends the next day. Nowadays, thanks to Facebook, things happen a bit…

Mixed Feelings

Hope you are doing well. My feelings and emotions last month were just like a roller coaster ride. If you ever been on one, you’ll know what I mean. It started with the anxiety of the “tax ride” – gathering  information, W2’s, mortgage and bank statements among hundreds of pieces of documents in order to get my…

The Wild Card

Oh…You Do That Too?

Have you ever watched one of those TV shows where a team of designers / contractors comes to a home and within a matter of 48 hours everything changes? Sometimes I feel like my business is the same way.

New Website

Two years ago, I went to a car dealership looking to buy a hybrid type to save a few bucks on gas. At the showroom, there was a floor model L-O-A-D-E-D with every single gadget available. Obviously I fell in love with that particular one. Even the color was my favorite one. The only problem…
