This week, I got to revisit Walten Woods where homes…

This is a spooky one, but it’s a Martha Stewart design for Halloween. So I couldn’t resist. It uses styrofoam mannequin heads that you can buy at wig shops. And apparently if you add some cheesecloth, suspend them in the trees or from your porch ceiling or hang them on posts in the yard, you can have…

I decided to move sweaters back into my closet, but there was one problem. I must have purged the old sweaters,and now I must buy new. It seems like yesterday when my daughter lived here that “we” — I did like to wear her sweaters — had a herd of sweaters. And shoes. Well since she’s been…

I was lucky enough to attend the Pennsylvania Women’s Commission for Women Mentoring Symposium with nearly a dozen Erie women — thanks to Linda Stevenson of AthenaErie and the Erie Times-News — as one of 105 mentors from across the state, and it was spectacular.

5 remodeling tips for tiny baths

   September 15, 2014 7:31 am    0

I had a tiny bath in my old home, and remodeling was a serious challenge because standard sinks and tubs wouldn’t fit and limited what we could do. I renovated that bath three times and never liked it. But now, look at  this clever design from Houzz. What a sink! I’ve seen a lot of houses where homeowners created some…

I may have to return to get the strippy sandals I left behind. This all started because my granddaughter had the cutest boots on when we saw…
