This week, House to Home visits with Deanne Bardo, proud owner of a Union Square town home at 12th and Peach streets. She and her husband and family sold their Fairview home to move to downtown Erie.

Manners up for Thanksgiving Day

   November 20, 2013 7:38 am    0

This table from one of our House to Home articles is certainly a designer demo, and one thing you won’t see on the perfect place settings is cell phones. A friend asked me to write an article about put-away-the-cell-phone-dinner etiquette — not just for the kids. She said adults at her dinner table were often worse…
