Now that I have some free time on my hands, my redneck friends and I found some inspiration from the good ol’ Dukes of Hazard. If they can jump the General Lee, surely we can get some air on a few vehicles we’re planning on selling for spare parts, right?

Posted by [email protected] on Comments comments (0)

Houzz Contributor. I'm a California-based writer and editor. While most of my projects are garden-based, you might also find me writing about home projects and classical music. Away from the computer, I'm found in the garden (naturally), on my bike, or ice-skating outdoors (yes, that is possible in California). I'm also willing to taste-test anything that's chocolate.

Buy Doors and Windows online?

Posted by [email protected] on Comments comments (0)

I recently bought a 3000sf house. I'm renovating it and replacing the 60's era sliding glass doors. I have 2x 10' sliders and 3x 8' french doors that all need replaced - it is probably $10k-$30k worth of doors. I have worked with a couple different places trying to get some prices and it is infuriating. It takes days to get an answer on anything, and there are a thousand questions like "do you want a screen on that window?" and you say, "hmm... how much does it a...

What’s Your Favorite Holiday Tradition?

Posted by [email protected] on Comments comments (0)

For the first decade we were together, the holidays were a (literal) drag.  In fact, we dragged ourselves all over the state and the country, working to fulfill everyone else’s holiday dreams and traditions. (Spoiler alert: most holiday seasons ended in exhaustion and tears, feeling like we’d met everyone’s needs but our own.) For us, having our second kid was our impetus to toss caution to the wind, tell our family that if they wanted t...

Posted by [email protected] on Comments comments (0)
When cooler weather arrives, you know that it’s that time of year once again. Coughs, cold and flu start flying around faster than in-laws and second cousins for family reunions and holiday remembrances. You know what else is flying? Bottles of elderberry syrup, gummies, and related products off healthfood store shelves.
