I stopped by The Pink Cabbage in Ellicott City, MD for their Holiday open house this past weekend. Such a beautiful store! I've been there many times over the years and have quite a few items throughout my house that I purchased at The Pink Cabbage, from pillows to candlesticks to picture frames....
Happy Closing Day in Marble Hill in Elkridge, MDThis darling 2-bedroom condo has found a very happy new owner, my client! It's a very special closing for so many reasons. My client is the son of friends I've known for more than 18 years. He's a VA buyer - we ratified just before Veteran's Day - a...
One of my favorite coffee shops in Howard County, MD is Roggenart, European Bakery Bistro & Cafe. They have 3 locations in the county, Ellicott City, Columbia, and in Savage at the entrance of the historic mill. The latter is my go-to place because the ambiance is cozy and reminds me most of a li...

My favorite Baltimore broker, Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400, Home Rome Realty, has a fabulous listing in Stevenson, MD. Yesterday I stopped by her Open House and enjoyed exploring this very special home. Getting a personal tour from Margaret is always a treat. She specializes in extraordin...
Leaving new construction out of the equation, all homes tell a story. Every resident leaves their mark and we always wonder if walls could talk. We can tell upon opening the front door if this was a happy home. We can imagine family gatherings around the kitchen island or the pitter-patter of lit...
Walking around historic Ellicott City, you'll surely pass by this brick home just off Main Street and next to the Manor Hill Tavern. Ca. 1842, this historic home is known as the Day-O'Neal-French house, named after its first three consecutive residents. John Day bought the land from George Ellico...
