Life is short, art long, opportunity fleeting, experience treacherous,

judgement difficult.

Wednesday Wisdom…


Rely on your own strength of body and soul.  Take for your star self-reliance, faith,

honesty & industry.  Don’t take too much advice – keep at the helm and steer your own

ship, and remember that the great art of commanding is to take a fair share of the work. 

 Fire above the mark you intend to hit.  Energy, invincible determination with the right

 motive, are the levers that move the world.

~ Noah Porter

Five must have accessories to decorate your home.


 With interests rates still low, many people are realizing NOW is the time to buy rather than rent. So once you have your new home, the thought hits you that you need to decorate it. Here are the top 5 must have accessories to decorate your space. Whether new or redecorating, these accessories will bring a new feel to any room.
These accessories can be purchased from any store or for those of you that are watching your budgets be sure to check out your local second-hand stores, thrift stores or Goodwill. What one person thinks is junk; is another persons treasure.

1.) Mirrors~ a mirror will compliment any rooms decor and add light accents.

2.) Books~ add a 2-3 books to an end table. Books can be covered in decorative papers or fabrics to fit your lifestyle or personality.

3.) Nature items~ be sure to look outside your windows or while you are out on a walk for items that will compliment your home. Flowers, twigs or maybe even an old birds nest that has fallen out of a tree.

4.) Silver frames~ rather than have all your frames in different colors or styles, use silver ones to give your home clean lines. You can also change out the silvers around the home to mix up the styles every so months for different looks.

5.) Original art work or sculptures~ when your kids bring home their artwork from school, don’t put it in a drawer, put it in a silver frame and hang it on the wall or on a table. Not everything need be a Picasso or cost thousands of dollars for it to be considered art.

Remember, your home is representation of you and your lifestyle. Make it comfy for you to live in and enjoyable for your guests to come to.
