Visual exercise from the mind to the palette...

This is a a study how the mind visually can affect our palettes. Below is a picture of a hot meal prepared for your pleasure.  After the meal picture are three kitchens.  This is a personal taste test...which kitchen would you like to think this meal was prepared in?  And, how do you think the meal would taste in each of these kitchens??!
Hot grilled steak!

What do you think??

"Magical showerheads"!

Artos Kascade dual-function showerhead in polished chrome finish by Westover Company.

Memowell - Magic Showerhead

Do you believe in magic? We do, thanks to the multicolor Magic Showerhead. It showers you in seven colors, but is green at heart. LED lights are powered by water pressure alone: no electricity or batteries. The two-minute color rotation reminds you of time, encouraging shorter showers and water conservation.
I came across these and wanted to share.  I love seeing new products and how they are advancing. If anyone would like more inf., please contact me!

So much to be thankful for...

I will be putting these around the dining area to give a pretty glow. Very easy to do!

I have so many wonderful blessings in my life that I am thankful for everyday.  Health, happiness, family, friends, pets, clients, a warm home, laughter, and my list could go on forever.  Thank you to all the supportive people who have been with me through thick and thin (you know who you are xo).  I  always wish to be with you and hope my love and support will help guide you.  HAVE A WONDERFUL THANKSGIVING!!

Renovations That Give You a Return on Your Investment

It's the fundamental question facing anyone who has ever embarked on a home renovation: How likely am I to get the money back when I sell my house?
There's no easy answer, because what a buyer might be willing to pay depends on many factors — everything from the choice of project to the materials you use to the value of other homes in your neighborhood. But it's important to have some idea of what your improvements might be worth.

Thanksgiving- Are we ready?!!

I love white as a backdrop so all of the rich Harvest colors of food can be the focal point.
