Looking Back On Sunday

Have you heard???

We closed escrow on our latest fixer-upper, The House On Victoria Court!! I’m so excited about this 1930s gem that I have already designed the entire home so we can move full steam ahead on a quick renovation. Stay tuned for frequent progress reports.

As I mentioned in this week’s post entitled, Creative Ways to Use Roof Tile in Home Décor, I may put a metal roof on this cabin. In the process of investigating roofs, I came up with some creative, DIY ways to repurpose roofing material. If you missed my post, click here to read it. It may get your creative juices flowing…

In my second post this week I shared with you some of the ideas I’ve come up with in the search for a Picture Perfect Gift For Your Best Friend. One of my besties will soon be celebrating a special birthday and I need just the right gift for her. See what I came up with by clicking here.

Going Shopping On Sunday

As I’ve mentioned numerous times on this blog, I do a lot of online shopping. That’s because I live 6000 feet above sea level where few shopping opportunities exist. It takes me almost an hour to get to my favorite stores, so Amazon Prime has become my shopping mall of choice. By now I imagine even city dwellers are Amazon Prime members, correct? You are too, right? Well, for us Amazon Prime devotes I’ve got a treat for you. It’s a Golden Globe Winning series you can enjoy for free as a Prime member and it’s called, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. It’s an absolute hoot!!!

Here’s what they are saying about it…

From the Creator of Gilmore Girls, ‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ tells the story of Miriam “Midge” Maisel, a woman who has everything she’s ever wanted—the perfect husband, two kids, and an elegant Upper West Side apartment. But her perfect life suddenly takes an unexpected turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent—one that changes her life forever.

So, while we are on the subject of shopping…

Two of my very favorite places to shop are Costco and Trader Joe’s. What I can’t stock up on at Costco I usually pick up at Trader Joe’s. So, when I ran across this article on one of my favorite websites, Kitchn.com, that compared the best selling items from each store, I was all over that. Not surprising, Costco prices were lower in almost every case, but, each store gives us a different reason to love them. Want to read the article? Click here.

  • I have Prime but haven’t yet checked out Marvelous Mrs. Maisel so thanks for the tip. Your new fixer must be really inspiring and I can’t believe you already have the interview all planned. Time is money, so it’s a good thing you’re moving quickly. Thanks for sharing the video. It’s cute…and a great reminder to enjoy the simple things! Have a great week…

  • The Enchanted Home

    Fun post and congratulations on your home!! Exciting….I loved Gilmore girls and wanted to click my heels and be transported into their idyllic little town but though I tried Mrs. Maisel didn’t really get into it, maybe I should give it another shot. I will check out kitchn, sounds interesting and I am with you on Amazon Prime, it sure makes life easy! But I also like to support local businesses when I can and ironically on my Sunday post wrote about this very subject. Hope you have a wonderful week!

  • Thanks Vanessa. Yes, I got so excited by this new fixer that I plowed full-steam-ahead with the design. As you say, time is money so I hope to progress quickly with this one. It’s just me and 2 helpers so we aren’t fast like the folks on TV. Stay tuned for updates.

  • Thanks Tina. Funny, I never saw the Gilmore Girls so I guess I should check out that show. I wish I had local businesses to support, but we are limited here in this small resort community so it forces me to take advantage of Amazon. But when I can I for sure frequent our Lake Arrowhead businesses, as you are so correct that shopping local is very important to our communities. You too have a great week!
