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)

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)

Are You Happy at Work?
I have been watching  a lot of TED talks recently.
I like how the lecturers have such passion for their subject.


To me; not having passion for your work means you should be doing something else.
After all it's a huge part of your day...
 
I have been told over & over people can see the passion I have for my work. In fact I don't even call it work... :)
 
In fact, there is a quote I love that I found applies:
"Success is not knowing whether you are working or … (13 comments)

Making a Child's Room Flufftastic in Edmonton!I had the chance to stage a child's room this week and boy was it fun!A couple months ago I had come across some ladybug nesting file boxes and knew they'd be the perfect starting point for a kid's room.


 I also had a couple meters of ladybug fabric that had caught my eye years ago. We won't talk about how much fabric I have, it makes my husband cranky... :D
So I found a couple small lamps and recovered the shades with fabric using my handy dandy hot glue gun and, with … (21 comments)

How Not To Market Your Listing! Day 3 - Thursday... I have been perusing MLS and contacting Realtors who might not understand the value of Property Styling based on the photos I find.
