I hope your 2019 has kicked off in a really great way.
I wanted to tell you today about a little product I think every home should have. If you love to entertain and serve red wine, you’re going to want to order have some Wine Away on hand. It’s amazing how those spills are so hard to get out, but this product is like magic.
So order some Wine Away now. It’s very reasonably priced – just around $6. And all you have to do is spray directly on the spill — it works like magic!
The tree is decorated, the presents are wrapped, and we’re getting close to that time of year where we want to celebrate what’s most important.
About two years ago, my niece-in-law gave me a great gift. In the past, I did my place cards by hand which can get very time consuming. That time could be better spent with my grandchildren and family!
Not only can you order them online but you can print over 20 name cards within a matter of a few minutes. They’re beautiful and look like they’ve been done by hand. And because I’m such a big recycler, I’ve got them all ready again for this year. You can just keep adding to them for the next year. The best part is you can do it all online:
Happy Holidays to everyone! I’m out in Walker and my courtyard — it’s so fun to make our courtyard look really festive this time of year.
One of my favorite landscape friends, Gary, told me something really important that I want to share with you. During the winter months, it’s important to reset your sprinkler systems. We generally have our sprinklers go off in the early mornings during the summer months. Gary explained during the winter months, it’s better to re-set the time to late morning or early afternoon. During that time, the weather is warmer allowing your sprinkler to come on.
It’s important we continue to water our yards and our foundations during the winter months, so be sure and re-set your timer.
As we approach Christmas in the next coming weeks, I wanted to share some of my favorite gifts to give and to receive!
One of my favorite gifts I receive is an Amaryllis from my college roommate who sends me one every year! As I said in my video, they’re beautiful and last forever! This year, I took one to my Aunt Betty and Walker’s mom. You can get one from Jackson & Perkins here or if you’re lucky, you can find one at your local Trader Joe’s.
Another one of my favorite gifts are these Christmas Ornaments from MiniManyMemories. Every year, one of my best friends takes last year’s Christmas card photos and makes them into great ornaments for my tree. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for your own little ornament!
I love recycling vintage items and passing down fond memories. This year I’m recycling my daughter’s Barbie car to her girls. I can’t wait to see Grace and Clara play with it.
I hope these you’ll enjoy these gifts as much as me!
Because maintaining a home is very expensive, I like to try and spread out all the things we need to do to maintain our homes to keep them beautiful. Right before the holidays I like to have the windows cleaned. I just recently met Dale Harris from Plus One Window Cleaning (C:214‐986‐2334). He cleaned all the windows, overhead awnings and cleared the dryer vent.
Make sure the window cleaner clears out your dryer vent to avoid a potential fire hazard. Ask him to let you know if he sees areas that need attention or paint.
