Thank You for Missing Me…Redesigning, Staging, Selling, and Family

Hey, it is nice to be missed.  I have just been too busy to blog…seems not much has slowed down since before the holidays…actually still have Christmas Decor in my “lower level”.

  I knew I could use these LARGE ??? things some day when I saw  them on clearance at West Elm last summer… so glad we have a store in Columbus, Ohio now.   They were candle holders inside and outside with globes…they were plant stands…and now…legs on a table.

My original thought was to make some distressed wood for the top…but found this basket in my “lower level”and my new table was  reinvented!

I am trying to bring different textures to a room that used to be more formal…now the white slip covers, burlap……it’s new again!

Curly sticks, Grandma Kay’s crocks, and shelf paper soaked in tea, wrinkled and rolled up..some twine from the garage…and the new look is here….really started with the white slip covers.

Gave my neighbor a “Rednek Wine Glass” for Christmas…she loved it.  (Irwin’s Hallmark, Westerville, Gahanna, or Canal Winchester).  Okie Morris, created the stemware from a Mason jar glued on top of a Libbey candlestick holder.  Okie is now making Rednek wine charms made from bottle caps that have been sprayed neon colors.  Okie has made a few dollars on her latest reinvention.

Don’t forget…This Sunday at your nearest Pottery Barn…free class…10-11 on “Accessories” .  Call your store to verify time and register.  The price is right and you get an hour in the store with designers and a discount.  Bring dimensions of a room for advice on furniture placement, etc.  Free…yes FREE.

Have had a great week reassuring Relocating Families…that it is true, one can get to the airport within 20 minutes from most parts of town, a traffic jam in Columbus, Ohio is newsworthy, and we are truly “that friendly”.  Selling Columbus Ohio Real Estate is Fun when you love the area.  The “pickings are slim right now”…if you are thinking of listing… now is the time.  Competition will be greater as more sellers relist after the holidays.

Want to hear about my family…sure you do.  Have been spending a little more time with my 88-year-old mother…even her “Buckeye Ballgames” haven’t been enough entertainment for her these last couple of weeks.  And headed west soon for a long weekend with daughters…shopping, hiking, spa, and wine…not sure what order.  Still packing along Christmas gifts that wouldn’t fit their luggage guidelines…so I have only what I wear to the airport.  Shopping…yes that is a planned activity.  And George…he won’t personally be along on this trip but his budget plan will…he never gives up.

    Are you sure you aren’t taking clothes other than what you wear to the airport? Doesn’t sound like the Emma I know!
