Not-so-welcomed addition to the family

Hubby and I have been trying very hard to simplify our life by being organized. We want to clean up our garage full of junks to be able to park our car there again.

And THEN I brought this home. It was sitting by curb all alone with a little sign says "I'm free. Please pick me up". It looked so lonely and I was sure I can make her as pretty as she once was. I couldn't just ignore her and go on my way. I had to pick her up.

It is understatement to say hubby was frustrated . We have enough junk and things to fix already and  my 24 hours seems getting shrunken everyday and why I keep bringing home projects. I'm frustrated with myself as much as he is. When I will get around to make this okay enough to bring inside is really really questionable. What should I do to fix this habit?

But I have to say I had a vision at least! I didn't just pick it up because it was free. I saw the potential in this dresser. Everyone deserves a second chance, right?
Look at what these ladies did with not so perfect piece of furniture. I have a dream to be cool like Kelly at High Street Market or Jenny at Little Green Notebook. :) Do you know any good place to pick up handles and pulls? Now I'm really pumped to make this work. :)

Guess how much this painted Armoire by designer Chloe Redmond Warner sold for at the One Kings Lane Tastemakers Sale? Just under four THOUSAND (not hundred). My addiction doesn't sound too bad right now. Only if I can get my frogs turn into princessess.

Forever Families Dinner

I'd like to let you know about a fundraiser that a good friend of mine is doing to help adoption cost. She and her two friends are adopting 7 kids from Haiti. They will deliver yummy homemade meal to your table. Doesn't it sound good?

Bellingham listed among top 10 'happiest cities' in the West

In case you haven't heard, Sunset magazine selected Bellingham as one of the top 10 'happiest cities' in the West in their February issue. Each town makes the list for a different reason and Bellingham is summarized as "a seaside haven 90 miles north of Seattle" with 65 miles of multi-use trails within city limits, plus nearby access to mountains and sea.

Some might question not-much-sun and happiness connection. We have plenty of sun here. They get just a bit scarce in winter.

I love living here for sure. How about you?
If you decide to move to Bellingham to become a happy bellinghamster, I can help you with finding your new home! Please contact me with any Real Estate needs.

2011 Spring color trend and myself

What a great way to start the new year with Pantone's color of the year 2011. Pink.

It's not any pink. It's a vibrant Honeysuckle pink with lots of red in it. Pantone says "A Color for All Seasons: courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new color, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It's a color for every day - with nothing everyday about it." 
It matches exactly what I have in mind for myself for the new year. I want to be brave and confident personally and professionally. I want to push the limit with my business and I want to try lots of new things: new recipes, website, marketing, sports. Same me but new way of living. I care what I think of myself and  less care about what other people think of me.

Isn't this color lovely?
