Wood Blinds

As we all know, there are many different styles of blinds out there; of the many choices vinyl, aluminum, and wood are the three most popular.  I have talked a little about vinyl and aluminum, today I will cover wood blinds.  There are two main reasons to get wood blinds vs the other styles; looks and insulation function.

When we are in the Light, we glimmer and shine. When we are in the Light, we are our true selves. It is our job as facets of the whole to find that Light and shimmer our brightest possible. It is our job as facets of the whole to spread that light. I want this blog to be a part of that. I won’t use the word ‘God’ always, in fact I admit it is still uncomfortable for me to use that word since I associate it with an extremely religious upbringing that caused (and still causes) much torment and suffering in some of my relationships. The word ‘God’ can put people off, including…
