One of the best places to spend money when renovating your house is in the kitchen. Here are some before and after photos to get you thinking of what you’d like to do at your house.
One of the most common questions I get as a Realtor is when is the best time to list my house? Here is a graph that illustrates which month the most homes sold in 2013. This means an offer was accepted on the home 30-60 days before. So start getting your homes ready! March-May is coming quickly.
I stage and list homes and help buyers find homes. Let me know if I can help you out in any way!
Are you still looking for that perfect vegetable side dish to compliment Tom Turkey? This year Roasted Brussels Sprouts will be a new addition to our table. Delicious! Below are more ideas to check out. Happy Thanksgiving!
1 1/2 pounds Brussels sprouts
3 tablespoons good olive oil
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut off the brown ends of the Brussels sprouts and pull off any yellow outer leaves. Mix them in a bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour them on a sheet pan and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. Shake the pan from time to time to brown the sprouts evenly. Sprinkle with more kosher salt ( I like these salty like French fries), and serve immediately.

I stumbled across this gorgeous caramel pear recipe that looks delicious! These pears would also make beautiful gifts for loved ones or neighbors.
I’m loving this post from Refinery 29 featuring 30 great rooms in NYC. One of the trends they picked up on is adding aubergine to a room. What is aubergine you ask?
Creating a photo collage can be a great way to showcase a lot of artwork or family photos in an interesting way. There are however some rules that I think should be followed so that the collage actually looks good instead of a jumbled mess of frames. There are different approaches to take in creating your wall collage. Here are a few examples.
Symmetrical Collage Random Collage Chaotic Collage
Symmetrical Collage is a safe one (tough to hang them all completely correct however!) and when you use the same frames it looks really clean and fresh. I think The Random Collage adds a lot more interest. What makes this one work is that all the pictures share a similar theme in that they are all portraits. Using a common theme throughout helps create cohesiveness to your collage. Then we go with what I have titled the Chaos Collage, proceed with caution! I think that this type of collage is so tough to pull off. Rarely does it look artistic and interesting, mostly messy and chaotic.
Here are a few simple rules that can help you create whatever kind of collage suits you best.
1. Contain your collage to a large square or rectangle.
2. Use an invisible line somewhere in the collage to align some of the artwork. The line can be on the top, bottom, or in the middle of the collage. It can also be the border that keeps everything in invisible square or rectangle.
These simple rules help you create a unique collage that is still easy on the eyes!
If you are looking for a great snack or treat for kids this Halloween, we just made one of our favorites! They are Caramel Covered Marshmallows that I blogged about years ago. Here’s a tip if you do make them, we dipped apples in the leftover caramel and then rolled them in rice krispies just like the marshmallows. They were yummy too and healthier!
