Where Are They Now - Hit and Miss Projects
When I check out other blogs and they showcase fabulous projects, I sometimes wonder if it was a quick fix or something that will last.  I thought it would be fun to revisit a few of my past projects to let you know how they have held up. Transforming a Clo...

14 years ago today I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.  I have tried to enjoy each and every moment since God blessed me with her.  Times flies by so quickly and seems to be going faster and faster each day.   Happy Birthday Sydney!  I love you to the mo...

I Hope this means Warmer Weather is on the Way
My favorite time of the year is when I get the letter from our pool company setting the date for the pool to be opened.  By contrast, one of my least favorite times of the year is when we get the letter with the date the pool will be closed. Lol It's been a...

Flowers Make My Day
Sometimes you have those days where you are feeling down and blue and then something nice happens to turn your day around.  That's what happened to me yesterday. I still don't feel 100% as I try to recover from the flu.  My energy level is way below what it...

DIY Easter Basket
I got the idea for this Easter basket after my kids had some friends over and they went through a new box of donuts in a matter of minutes.    Something about the box shape screamed Easter basket to me.  Go figure... It's really a quick, fun project that yo...

Trial and Error Pillows
I am still working on the finishing touches in my living room.  I have not yet found artwork that I love, so I thought that if I could settle on the pillows I could move this project forward. The thing with pillows is you really have to try them in the spac...

Spring in the Kitchen
It's been a rough week.  Last Tuesday we were scheduled to leave for  Phoenix and Colorado to visit the last two baseball stadiums and go to the Grand Canyon.  On Monday I got diagnosed with the flu (and yes, I did have a flu shot). The doctor put me on Tam...

$6 Powder Room Update for Spring
Spring is in the air so it's a good time to make some changes around the house.  One of my favorite rooms in our home is our first floor powder room.  It's funny because it started out as one of my least favorite rooms.  But a few years ago I embraced the w...

Did you know that it's National Craft Month?  When Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store contacted me and asked if I wanted to create a spring craft, I jumped at the chance. I found inspiration in the spring trends highlighted at Jo-Ann, specifically the floral tre...

Story
Introduction
I have always had a passion for design and decorating.  Inspiration is everywhere and good design doesn't always have to cost a fortune.   I started this blog to share how my thoughts and ideas become realities... and to provide a little inspiration to others along the way.  Follow me through my adventures in decorating.

We had some water damage from Hurricane Irene (we didn't know about it at the time and after a year, we developed mold and poor air quality). We called two remediation companies to give us a price quote. Not only was PuroClean's quote 1/2 of what the other company quoted, the services listed were identical. Mitch Cohen was very professional on the phone calls and during our initial consultation. My phone calls to him were always responded to promptly. The work was done on time and consistent with the plan. His team was professional and everything was clean when they left. Most importantly, the water damage impacted our basement air quality and a test after PuroClean had completed their work showed normal levels again. Hope to never need them, but would hire them again.
