bc: It's National Drink Wine Day Tomorrow; Feb 19, 2016! Are You Prepared? - 02/18/16 03:04 AM
Woo Hoo! February 19 has been designated National Drink Wine Day!
Many of our local wineries have been holding tastings at their shops & out at the local liquor stores with samples of their fare.
 
Some even have sales while their stock lasts, so now is the time to get your favourites so you can enjoy them tomorrow!
 
I made sure I have appropriate glasses; buying six new crystal bowls! (only 4 fit on my shelf tho...)
 
 
Now to go out & find some faves to sample! I'm very fortunate to live in the Okanagan; Napa of the North, there's even a wine tour called … (13 comments)

bc: Can One Have Too Many Decks? Part One... - 02/10/16 01:15 AM
When I moved here to the Okanagan, BC, I spent the first 6 months renovating the inside of my place. The outside didn't come into play until the next spring.
 
 
We have glorious weather here from March until the end of November, for the most part, & outdoor spaces are at a premium. All of my neighbours enjoy the outside with an outdoor space, so I thought that might be a good idea.
 
I didn't really have any outdoor seating spaces, so I thought I would remedy that with a deck, or three...
 
Deck one kind of encompasses deck 2 as well, but I'll … (8 comments)

bc: Fabulous February Faves in the Okanagan, BC - Snowshoeing - 02/08/16 12:50 AM
Yesterday was the first time I snowshoed in over 30 years!
 
And you know what I found out?
 
Snowshoeing in the Prairies where I grew up (near Edmonton, AB), is Far different than snowshoeing on the side of a mountain. (huff puff)
 
I went with my friends Georgina & David.
G had never shoed before, but David is an old hand. He even has his own S-shoes!
 
We went up to the Nordic center at Apex which is not far from Penticton with trails where one can cross-country ski, snowshoe & hike.
 
Luckily they rent snowshoes because my old rat tail gut & leather … (4 comments)

My Days of Wine & Roses... in Summerland, BC
Having moved Fluff My House! Home Staging Inc. to Summerland, BC just over a year ago I have had the chance to see many of the local award winning wineries with various friends. We have an association called Bottle Neck Drive that many of the wineries are located on with it's own map that tourists can follow to go on tastings.

 
 We also have companies, like Top Cat Tours, that take people on wine tasting tours; my fb friend David Brooks is a tour guide for them. A designated driver … (10 comments)

The Beautiful Place I Live; South Okangan, BC (part one)
Having moved to the South Okanagan, BC just over a year ago, Peg; the Flufftastic Fairy, from Fluff My House! Home Staging, has been busy finding out what a beautiful region this is.
 

Lake Okanagan is 135 km long & 4 -5 km wide and has numerous cities & towns along it's banks. Hwy 97 runs alongside so there is spectacular scenery from Kamloops to Penticton.
 
 
When I was a child my family would come to visit every year as both grandmothers resided within 20 km from each … (16 comments)

Seriously! You Need Your Own TV Show...
In the past year I, the Flufftastic Fairy from Fluff My House!Home Staging Inc have moved to another province, renoed a new place to live from studs, built a deck, landscaped a garden water feature & basically started from scratch in Summerland, BC.

Throughout this period I have been documenting my progress on Face book. Sometimes the comments I would get would be the only contact I had with the outside world.

So when I say that my fb friends got me through the year, I mean it.
But often I would … (12 comments)

An Artsy Side of Vegas? Downtown Container Park; a New kind of Green!
While Fluff My House! Home Staging was at the Real Estate Staging Association 2014 (#resacon) conference in Vegas last week, I took a stroll to see Freemont Street with Lynda B. Schmidt; a fellow Canadian Stager.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Lynda has a powerful urge to take the roads less traveled & because of her I got to see some things in Las Vegas I normally would not have seen.
Freemont Street is what you would expect, we missed the light show because it was … (5 comments)

Thinking Outside the Box(es): When What You Ordered Isn't...
Since I moved to Summerland, BC, at the end of June I've been waving my Flufftastic Fairy wand all over my own place to make it awesome!
Part of that involved choosing light fixtures for every room...
Not an easy choice, because if you want: sconces, 1 pendant lights, 3 pendant lights & flush mounts that don't fight with each other, but don't come in the same family it can get frustrating & be overwhelming.
Originally I had seen these sconces by BAZZ at RONA & thought they would look awesome! I was going to put … (20 comments)

Some Jokes Hit Close to Home... Being Able to Laugh is Good!
Since I have bought my place in Summerland, BC, I have had the misfortune of meeting  a few contractors & trades people that are less than desirable. It's interesting, because as the Flufftastic Fairy from Fluff My House! Home Staging Inc. I have the opportunity to recommend contractors & trades to clients I have here in the Okanagan...

Many weren't even interested in working on my place, or were too busy, so that made the ones who actually answered the phone, or called back extremely enticing...

The first contractor I … (20 comments)

Still Here... Still Pluggin' Along...
I, (the Flufftastic Fairy, from Fluff My House! Home Staging Inc.) haven't been blogging much because I have been renovating my new place... in Summerland, BC.

It's about halfway there... (probably more than that, but it seems I still have so much to do...)
Anyway I have had requests to see the progress, so I thought I would post some pix...

Remember it was gutted down to the studs & most of the walls moved or removed at one point, so I guess it has come a long way... :)

The wall on the right was … (26 comments)

Penticton Farmers Market; Where You Can Buy Local Every Saturday, Spring to Fall!
For those in the know; I am not just the Flufftastic Fairy. My alter ego is BAM-a-Lam, Balloon Animal Maker extraordinaire (lol)...
So when I moved to Summerland, BC, in late June this year I decided I would work at the local Farmer's Markets to make money while Fluff My House! Home Staging Inc. got up & running.
Non-rainy Saturdays have been spent at the Penticton Farmer's Market located on 4 to 5 blocks of Main Street Penticton from 8am - 2 pm. The hours are actually 9 - 1 pm … (6 comments)

Summerland, BC - Timber Mart: Friendly Advice, Excellent Service!
Having moved to Summerland BC at the end of June of this year, & having bought a 'fixer-upper', I (the Flufftastic Fairy) have become well acquainted with the staff at the Timbermart here in Summerland.
They are located 9310 Jubilee Road. (250) 494 6921 - www.stbm.ca
They always greet me with a smile & only after a few initial visits, by name.
(Sorry about the photo quality they were taken with my iPad...)
(Francine is the first smiling person you see, she hates getting her picture taken...)


It is a wonderful atmosphere where … (8 comments)
