How To Repair Chipped or Missing Window Glazing

How to Repair Glazing on Window 1

Welcome to the 317th Metamorphosis Monday!   A few years ago I had the exterior of my home painted, actually it's been about 6 years now. Wow, time has flown by!

Corral Those Charging Cables With A Charging Valet

Charging Station Valet from Pottery Barn for Multiple Devices

Welcome to the 314th Metamorphosis Monday! I love wireless devices and the freedom they afford us, but that freedom has to take a pit stop every now and then to recharge.

A little over a year ago I shared a solution for managing all the little charging cables on my desk in that semi-hidden area where the … [Read more...]

Welcome to the 309th Metamorphosis Monday! How was your holiday? Did you spend it with family?

Finally, A Beach House To Rival The “Something’s Gotta Give” Beach Home

White Slipcover Sofas For Beach House

Welcome to the 308th Metamorphosis Monday! It's always struck me as so ironic that one of the most well-loved beach houses ever to exist, didn't really exist. Do you know the one I'm talking about? Yep, that one--the beautiful and iconic home in the romantic comedy, Something's Gotta Give, starring Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson. Movie goers everywhere fell head-over-heels for the amazing interiors of … [Read more...]

Welcome to the 303rd Metamorphosis Monday! Have you ever thought of downsizing to a smaller home?
