Every time we disparage the state of the economy and talk about the terrible state of real estate, we create a self fulfilling prophesy. It is my view that if we are positive, then positive things will happen. There are great opportunities in the market and it is time to stress the positive, and put a bow on it.

On a day when most of us are mindful and thankful I can't help but think about the roads not taken, the things left unsaid, and most assuredly the things that can't be changed. Learning to move forward, no matter what is essential to not living in regret. Yes I have thought about people no longer...
This is a lovely sterling silver overlay swan platter. It is something that I acquired years ago and never used. I had it in a glass cabinet and decided someone should really be able to use it and I don't. It is stamped sterling in numerous places and has some good weight to it.
I have a space in a local antique gallery where I work on Sundays. There are 42 different dealers so things change often. When things sell I bring in new things to replace what is gone. Seasons bring changes as well. Last week I added some blinking lights and some bows. It looks lovely but doesn'...
It's snowing where I live now. It isn't heavy but it is constant. This morning I saw a little red friend outside and snapped a sequence of photos. Fortunately I have a good camera with a better zoom lens so I cam do my photography from inside my home. It's really cold outside. Be safe little Red,...
This is not a typical real estate post on how do the best when buying or selling. Good agents help and advise clients and are the ones that carry the heavy loads. Today I am talking about a different type of negotiation: the kind we do with ourselves.I have been in this negotiation for a couple o...
Yesterday was a tough one. I had life stuff and nothing was major but it was neither a productive or enhancing day in anyway. Today is better. It is better because I decided it would be. As I write this, I have pups surrounding me who decide everyday is going to be good. If I have learned anythin...
I am not talking about a place or even jazz. i am actually talking about the amazing birds I see in my neighborhood year round. In the cold, wind and snow it is hard not to be amazed by the little ones who always seem to weather the season. These were taken in the last couple of days. Not every b...
This is my day to work at the antique gallery where I have a space. It is really cold and there maybe snow later. That said I enjoy seeing the new old things that have come in between my visits. Yesterday I put some additional lighting up and hung some rugs on the wall. I don't have the best spac...
I was thinking for the last couple of days how many things, mostly simple, tend to make me happy. On Thursday night it snowed heavily where I live and I was sooooooo happy to be home, warm, surrounded by my gang and content. Contentment is a magical thing and is often downplayed.I have already en...
It may be November but boy does it feel like January. The snow came in earnest last night and it still snowing. It's windy, cloudy and very very cold now. My garden guy never got to the leaves but I can't see them now anyway. My pups looked at me like are you crazy.....what's going on outside. It...
