Web Gems!

I love finding great things on the internet that I call “Web Gems”. It’s been a while since I posted any web gems for you (heck, it’s been a while since I posted anything…bad bad me), I figured it was time to treat my readers to a fun site. Sorry, but there is only one web gem today and as you can tell - it’s because I am sitting at my desk hungry and trying to think of something cool to make for dinner tonight.

My friends and family know that I LOVE to cook, and I have a large collection of recipes. For all of you who also like to cook and like the challenge of figuring out how to make your favorite restaurant dishes, here is a website I found that has some great recipes from restaurants like P.F. Changs, Applebees, etc. I enjoy P.F. Changs Lettuce Wraps minus the water chestnuts – ick; the recipe for this appetizer is on the website. I have yet to try the recipe, but as soon as I do, I will post if it’s just like the restaurant version or not. So stay tuned and I will let you know how it turns out. Here is a link to the website:

I also have a request for anyone/everyone…one of my favorite restaurant dishes is Hawaiian Chicken (or some restaurants list this dish as Pineapple Teriyaki Chicken). IF ANYONE has a “fantastic” recipe for this I will forever love you. And anyone who just wants to share recipes with me, please feel free to post or send me one privately. I enjoy getting great recipes and if I get enough maybe I will start a cookbook and publish it. I, of course, will print the author's name who sent me the recipe in the cookbook.

That is all for today. I hope to start blogging more often again. I have lots of new stuff to share with you, so check back soon. Ciao!

Now this is downsizing your home! Sorry for the unsophisticated
language, but I wonder who bought this “turd”.

Web Gems

In my quest to create a pleasant atmosphere for my office I came across some great websites, and I realized it has been a while since I passed along some “Web Gems” to my readers. So this posting is inspired by office décor.

HGTV has a great website for decorating ideas, which includes “Designer Portfolios”. There are some fantastic pictures of office décor on this website. This is probably the best website I found for decorating ideas.

This website gives you a designer tool for creating color combinations that work well together.

If you would like to find color meanings, this is a great website to introduce you to the psychology of colors. Yes, colors are more than just a “red apple” or “blue sky”; colors can have a deeper meaning that may surprise you.( Hint: next time you have a day in court, wear something blue which is perceived as truthful and honest.)

To end this blog I will give you one last link. All I can say is WOW these pictures are really cool!

White Overload

So now that my husband and I have started our own business, I have found myself in a bit of a quandary…how do I incorporate great décor into the office. Let me give you an idea of what my current working conditions are like: white walls, white ceiling, white doors, white window, white fixtures, white white white white white EVERYTHING. Do you see a pattern here? Nope! Because there is none!! (JK) Here are the measurements of the office: 10’ X 15’ WHITE BOX. One nice feature I at least have is the wood floors, but they are a dark stark contrast against the white everything else.

I have some ideas of what I want to do, but nothing definitive yet, and I would like to really make this a place that would WOW customers when they walk in the door. So I ask my readers, do you have any ideas to share with me on how to bring some stylish color to this office. Keep in mind that we are a glass and mirror shop; so I would like to integrate glass into the office as both decorative and functional elements. Any advice?

Hello Again!

HELLO AGAIN! It's been a while hasn't it? Well, you all will be happy to hear that this blog will be updated regularly again. Ahhhh....I can hear all the happy cheering screeching through the tangled web of Internet already. ;) Sorry it has been so long since I last posted, but the reinventing of oneself is a tedious and sometimes long process. Alas, we are back, and have emerged from the butterfly's cocoon and ready to write once more. Please feel free to leave me a kind message or idea of what you would like to hear/know from me, and I will try to provide some entertainment for all my readers.
