How Do I Stage this Bookcase? - 08/31/11 12:53 PM
So my townhouse is very long and skinny. The 2nd floor consists of the kitchen, living room, dining room and a bathroom. I purchased a bookcase last weekend to divide the living room and dining room to give it a cozier feeling. When sitting in the living room, chillaxin as I do, it looks great because all the knick-knacks are staged for the living room. But when seated at the dining room table, all I see is the back of picture frames etc. Any ideas from all you knowledgeable stagers out there??? View from Living Room

Dubrovnik, Croatia - 08/29/11 04:55 PM
Well it has been way too long and I need to finish my series of my TOAL (Trip Of A Lifetime). Our last port before heading back to Barcelona was Croatia. We had a day of rest between Venice and Croatia so I was ready to roll when we ported in. We took a bus to old town which is behind the walls. It was a very, very hot day and we decided to jump on a glass bottom boat ride to escape the hot sun. The clear teal water, breeze and gorgeous view of Dubrovnik from the sea was perfect.

Summertime Success in the Rain - 08/26/11 08:03 PM
It's a hot summer August day and we Seattleites are soaking up every piece of it! A friend's parents are in town from NJ and we're having a big italian feast tonight. I'm hoping they're Yankee fans so we can discuss the history made last night by the NY Yankees. I don't know how they do it but they continue to amaze! Another successful team are the faces below. These members have personally succeeded in using AR and their drive to become successful. Just as I love hearing the crack of the bat, I love hearing about the successes on AR (39 comments)
Wordless Wednesday - Mr. 3000+ - 08/24/11 05:36 PM
HBO's documentary following Jeter on his quest for his 3000th hit was just so good I had to watch it again. Talk about a talented team player full of heart.

Wordless Wednesday - My King Surprised Me - 08/17/11 01:45 PM
I am one to fully appreciate the little things in life. The treats that land in our paths unexpectedly. Recently, I was at the Brandi Carlile show and guess who came out to do a duet? Dave Matthews!!!!! Talk about excited! A local radio DJ sat behind me and videotaped the whole thing which is where this vid came from. They performed Angel from Montgomery which is an amazing tune. Sigh......
Success in the August Rain - 08/12/11 04:54 PM
I know many of you are fighting the heat out there. Getting up each hot muggy day, putting a smile on your face and showing the world what you've got can be hard. The heat can make even the happiest person into a sour grape. Refocus and do your best to get back on track. I'm very happy to highlight the 6 members below, some familiar faces and some maybe not. Show them that wonderful AR love and stop by their posts to say hi. Water, water, water, sunscreen, ice...do what you gotta do and stay cool! If you have yet (28 comments)

Success in the Beautiful Rain - 08/05/11 02:15 PM
I heard a very powerful and simple saying this week: Energy flows where attention goes. Why do we spend our attention and therefore energy on things beyond our control? Why do we tire ourselves focusing on the ugly? Why do we stress out and become "that person" nobody wants to be around? No way. Nope. Not me! So to all who get caught in the "what if, why did it happen that way" game, remind yourself that energy flows where attention goes. Let's focus on the good and get that energy flowing down the river of positivity. It's up to you (59 comments)
