Music Can Make Or Break A Party

on July 30th, 2015 by - Comments Off

The cake was ordered, the tuxedos reserved, and everything was quickly falling into place for my fiance and I’s upcoming nuptials with one small exception, the music. It was coming down to crunch time and we simply could not agree on the type of music that would play during the reception. Our families musical taste were incredibly broad and it seemed impossible to please the masses. We auditioned a DJ, string quartet, solo singer, and a wedding violinist. We decided to hire the violinist and it was the perfect decision. Soft melodies floated through the courtyard inviting our guests to relax and talk, or even dance. The music wasn’t overwhelming nor offensive, it was perfectly neutral. Our special night went according to plan with every person playing their part in just the right way, we wouldn’t change a single thing.

Recycling Can Inspire an Artist

on July 28th, 2015 by - Comments Off

While most people might see an 18-wheeler parked in a large shopping center, or pass by a recycling plant, many of those people only see recyclables as a way to earn a little extra cash. While the viewpoint of monetary gain is perfectly valid, I have a friend, Tennessee, who specializes in recycled glass media. This means that he will either use broken shards of glass or melt down donated glass and rework the pile into a vase, a jar, or any other practical or artistic glass object that strikes his fancy, or the fancy of a commissioner.

One of his most impressive pieces involved over a massive pile of fractured and shattered liquor bottles he’d been given by a nearby vendor friend. He used all of the material to create a family of snowmen, even making use of several bottle caps as stand-ins for the buttons across the torso.

Golf Course Madness

on July 5th, 2015 by - Comments Off

For years, I lived in Asia. A relative had a factory making items for private homes. Some customers came often to perform quality control checks on the items they had purchased. Many brought their spouses along for the trip.

One couple that I remember really loved the tropical atmosphere of the area where we lived. As they were both golfers, we invited them to play a round at our local club. Once we arrived at the entrance to the course, the visitors wife asked us to stop the car. She left the vehicle because she noticed a type of beautiful flowering plant lining the golf paths of the course.

As a florist Harrogate, she always had an interest in the plants that she saw. She was shocked to find this golf course had tens of thousands of plants, considered expensive at home, called the “Bird of Paradise” all over the course.

Keeping the Cat Off the Windows

on July 2nd, 2015 by - Comments Off

continually climbed into the window and got tangled in the blind cord in his attempt to play with it as it began swinging from his jump. Now he is quite disappointed. While in the home remodel store, I stumbled across the most gorgeous shutter blinds Manchester in a deep mahogany color I couldn’t resist. The blinds slide open and shut with a handle inside and allow in so much more light than my old aluminum ones did while being easier to clean. This is great for me as a working mom with zero time to clean blinds. However, Whiskers is less than amused. Now not only does he not have his favorite toy cord to bat at. A small price to pay for ease in cleaning!

I’ve discovered my green thumb, kind of

on June 25th, 2015 by - Comments Off

I have always had a terrible time at being able to plant things. I was not even able to successfully plant flowers in school, much less plant them when I got older. However, one day upon searching for the perfect item to make my new home look like it housed someone with gardening skills, I came across a wonderful item. Green walls was basically the answer to my lifelong failure at being able to plant things. I was able to buy items and set them up in my yard to at least give off the impression that I was able to grow things. This made me feel better and after a few years I was actually able to begin planting things that grew. I will always be thankful for the inspiration this type of instant gardening item gave me. However, be aware that things which grow outside don’t do well in the winter. I sure didn’t realize that.
