It has been so blazing hot this summer that I have not been able to enjoy the simplest of things outdoors. I live on a corner and both streets have been under construction and torn up for months and the grape vineyards once enjoyed have been torn down to make way for a subdivision of 125 homes a...

Sometimes in performing the normal tasks of running a business, you will come across an idea that really hadn't occurred to you before and it is like putting a banana on top of your head, so to speak. It's like "What is this?" And as amazed as I am it makes perfectly good sense... The Dinner Part...

I de-clutter all year long in little bits but the week between Christmas and New Years is the best time of year to address the areas that cause me stress. Either the towels in...

The best way I know how to teach someone how to home stage from the internet is through photos, so I am offering this opportunity for our members only to send me a picture of an actual house you are working on or selling and I will show you how to convert it into a beautifully STAGED room. Please...

Is it possible to give away so much knowledge that you are hurting yourself? It seems like it sometimes. I have a lot of experience and I share a lot of what I know to build a trust. I send out a monthly newsletter full of decorating tips and staging information absolutely free. Many people think...
