An excerpt from Max Lucado’s: My prediction for November 9

Please enjoy this exerpt from Max Lucado: We are really ready for this presidential election to be over. We’re ready for an end to the rancor and tackiness. Voters on both sides feel frustrated, even embarrassed by it all. There is a visceral fear, an angst about the result. What if so and so wins?   When we wake up to…

Make-Over Worthy

Your bathroom – It’s pretty much the first and last place you spend each day.  So this large or small or medium-sized space should fortify to take on the day then pamper for rest after.  With no remodel budget in mind, let’s conjure up a little TLC in this space. Borrow a seldom used tray or platter from the china…

Autumn’s Color Palette

Incorporate the hot colors of the season inside and out! With the soft blue skies of Fall serving as a perfect backdrop, patios and outdoor rooms are great spots to introduce bold color, which pairs well with nature’s neutral hues.  Warm up outdoor spaces (literally) with orange seat cushions or a yellow striped throw and add vivid fresh cut flowers…

Tis the (Pumpkin Spice) Season

With the weather finally flirting toward cooperation, we went ahead and pulled out the Fall decorations. I say Fall instead of Halloween because although Halloween has been my favorite day of the year since childhood, this minimalistic gal veers toward décor that will be seasonal this month and next – through Thanksgiving. A “foundation” of mums, seasonal spice candles and…

Be My Guest (Room)

I stayed in the most well-appointed room this weekend and thought I’d share.  I remember reading once upon a time that you should spend a night or two in your own home’s guest room to check out the “accommodations” for yourself. I think this gal had done just that. First up, and possibly most importantly, the bed was ultra comfortable. …

Fall into Labor Day

At the end of this week is one of those glorious 3 day weekends, extending through Labor Day Monday.  Since 1884, the first Monday in September has been a national “workingman’s holiday”, honoring the contributions that all workers have made, and continue to make, to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country. Pro:  A day off Con:  Unofficial end…

Back to School Wisdom

Tis the season.  Our thoughts turn to backpacks, newly sharpened pencils, and a reminder to live life simply and kindly – no matter what point you find yourself in life! Share everything. Play fair. Don’t hit people. Put things back where you found them. Clean up your own mess. Don’t take things that aren’t yours. Say you’re sorry when you…
