Preserve your books in your own unique way

How to create a cover for a book, so it would stay clean, new, and unique.

Saving money starting in SeptemberšŸ‘


Every year as sept comes around we start moving things around in our house. Tidying organizing replacing a few pieces of furniture trying toĀ  give our home a fresh look.

We are not alone, since the holiday season is just around the corner and families visit and entertain more during this time of the year we also tend to do more around the house.

With the end of the year closing, in this is a good time to purchase broadway tickets ( less tourismĀ  demand ) furniture such as TVs, mattresses, patio furniture, & cars. Anything that is not in sync with fast changing technology will see a price reduction.

So if you are the non procrastinator and can keep a secret, go shopping early for the holiday season. You can score a lot of points with a new car under the treešŸ‘šŸ˜†

We got Creative with our house plants

Hand made lantern from New Mexico


Outdoor lantern

To show off Ā our indoor plants at their best we are getting creative with how we place them around the house or in the office.

We used crystal bowls, baskets, buckets in metal, ceramic, plastic, and even clay lanterns. For times we have company and forgotten to buy cut flowers we bring in our flowering pots, even the herbs indoors & give our rustic pots a make over. It is fun you should try it.šŸŒæ

The new wallpaper

Graham & Brown

Why does it look so good ? The idea is old, but it somehow looks different. Is it because we are tired of the grays and the neutrals, or is it because we have a billion choices and much easier way to put up and strip away a wall paper?

Literary in minutes we can change a room with covering one wall in colors, patterns, and textures.

We donā€™t have to use wallpaper to just cover walls. We can cover a door, shelves in the pantry, create a window border, cover a bench, lamp shades, even stairs.

Our wallpaper choices begin with:

Prepasted, Nonpasted, or Self-adhesive paper.

Big or small as far as color & pattern:

Depends on what you already have in the room, and the size of the furniture. To make a room seem larger and still cozy, go with light colors. To make a bold statement and add a bit of drama, go with bold color.

What is in?

1- large florals in colors like fuchsia, orange and citron

2- graphic patterns

3- texture and embossed wallpapers

4- abstract

5- large black and white patterns

6- water color prints

7-Ā metallics and metallic accents

Or just follow the simple rule, go with what you like.
