We have some of the best decorating ideas I have seen in a while in House to Home this week, and check out the fabulous video that Rob Frank of GoErie.com and Christine Yamrick pulled together on a lovely $400,000 Sun Lake home listed for sale at 10611 Locust Knoll in Girard.

For the holidays, our decorating duo of writers from Sassy Peacock serve up several ideas that even I could do, and I will. Read their article here.

I wrote about Adelmo and Eleda Duchini’s home for sale. Read it here. The Duchini name is synonymous with block and brick in our region, and this home shows off that Italian heritage inside and out. 

We have some more ideas on holiday decorating with lanterns — something so simple and so elegant. Read the story here.

And check out the article by Sue Scholz about a wonderful team of local folks who have gained national recognition from the Smithsonian Institution for the World War II Memorial at West 26th and State streets.
