Hello Everybody!

It's December! Wow! That was quick wasn't it? Well, have a wonderful holiday season and don't stress .... I heard someone once say that he loved to travel, but hated traveling. He was, of course, talking about all the hassles involved in getting to his destination: the crowded airports, the heavy luggage, the inevitable delays. In fact, traveling can be so stressful that some people prefer to stay home.

The same can be true for people thinking of buying a new home. You may want to make a move - but the thought of selling, buying, and moving holds you back. That's where I can make a difference. If you, or someone you know is considering a new home, I can help develop a plan that will make the whole process run smoothly and easily.

Please contact me for more details.... and in the interim, enjoy your quirky December holidays ...."Eat a Red Apple Day" on the first; "Bathtub Party Day" on the fifth; "National Maple Syrup Day" on the 17th and "Look on the Bright Side Day" on the 21st!

Happy holidays - have fun and stay safe!

Garlands, Wreaths & Trees!

Looking for a high-style, low-fuss approach to decorating for Christmas this year? Take a look at these ideas.



Embellish some premade wreaths and filled do-it-yourself wreath forms with evergreen clippings to make several options that can hang in just about any room in your house. For this organic wreath, use three different kinds of moss from a crafts store and use florist U-pins to attatch the moss to florist foam or plastic foam wreath form. Vary the mosses while pinning for an authentic garden-like feel.



For a cheery look, start with a grapevine wreath (you can paint it any color you like) and hot-glue round Christmas ornaments in a single color but different shades and sizes. When gluing, adhere the balls to both the wreath and one another for extra hold. 



Keep doors simple with a swag over the top, accented with trailing ribbons and ornaments. To best secure the garland, hang it with nails placed right above the molding to minimize visible holes. Cut different lengths of ribbon, string the balls, and knot the lengths together before attaching to one side of the door frame. 


The Tree

Take inspiration from the surrounding landscape to infuse your tree with festive spirit and local flavor. If you live in Florida, even try using palm fronds, like the tree in this photo. Tweak the look to suit your own home.
