phoenix real estate: Favorite Destinations in Phoenix AZ - Musical Instruments Museum - 07/16/19 01:28 PM
One of my favorite places in Phoenix is the Musical Instruments Museum -  a collection of more than 6800 musical instruments, organized geographically by continent, by region and by country in five Geographic Galleries.  As you enter, a screen greets you with images of musicians and dancers and the message: Music is the langiage of the soul!
If your time permits, I would strongly recommend to join one of the docent tours - they are very insightful, entertaining stories about how to navigate the MIM galleries; also each docent story will reflect their specific music expertise or interest. I have attended tours where … (12 comments)

phoenix real estate: Orchid Show at Berridge Nurseries, Phoenix AZ - 04/06/19 04:33 PM
What a treat I came across today, while shopping for my favorite geraniums at the Berridge Nurseries in Phoenix.
The Orchid Show was such a display of beauty, color, elegance, joy.
It seems there was some kind of competition as some of the orchids had a tag "First Place", "Second Place" ...
All were so beautiful!

phoenix real estate: When It Rains Two Days In a Row in Phoenix - 10/02/18 09:42 AM
When it rains two days in a row in the Phoenix area,
we love to take photos of the rain,
zoom the photos as if we want to make sure what we see.
 We enjoy the weather with open doors and windows,
with walks in the rain.
I love to show homes in rainy weather, too. 

phoenix real estate: Sunrise or Sunset in Arizona - 09/09/18 11:34 AM
Sunrises and Sunsets are pretty dramatic in Arizona - it's a symphony of colors ranging from reds and oranges to various shades of blue-grey and green. I often see on Facebook my friends capturing an amazing sunrise or sunset and posting it. That's what those amazing colors and shapes make us do, pause our daily activity and admire the beauty.
Jim Peterson - Winter Sunset on South Rim
One of the recent exhibitions at the Hergerber Theatre Center was dedicated to the beauty of Sunrises and Sunsets. As I promised last month, I am sharing here on my blog some of the exhibits from the … (24 comments)

phoenix real estate: We Love Where We Live For Many Reasons - 08/05/18 02:03 PM
We love where we live for many reasons - for the comfortable homes that we enjoy, for the proximity to work, to dining, to entertainment, and for a lot more.
Herberger Theater Center is a Downtown Phoenix attraction. Besides stage performances, it also has various programs and events to engage with artists, patrons and viewers of all ages. One such event is the monthly themed exhibition. Every month The Herberger Art Gallery publishes on its web-site a "Call to Arists" Prospectus, inviting local Arizona painters, sculptors, photographers to submit their artistic applications. A curator and a jury, using a blind jurying process select the … (21 comments)

phoenix real estate: Any Time Now Valeska Soares at Phoenix Art Museum - 05/04/18 03:21 PM
Phoenix Art Museum is one of the most interactive art museums that I have visited.
From the welcoming greeter at the entrance,
to the interactive maps named
"I am Here for the First Time", "I am Here with Kids", "I am Here on a Date",
to the Object of the month tours,
and the Scavenger Hunt engaging us to "Find. Observe. Start a Conversation" and
the "Make-It" art creation - these are just a few of the many ways it connects with its audience.

phoenix real estate: The Hummingbird Capital of the United States - Arizona - 04/05/18 08:33 PM
Desert Botanical Garden is always relaxing, entertaining and educational.
We like to stroll there in every season and there is always something new that surprises us.
While walking in the Arizona Wild Flower section today, we learned that the reason we see so many humming birds on our patio is because there are so many around here.
There are 15 hummingbird species recorded. Some species stay year round, others come for the spring and summer.
The Wild flower section of the garden was all in bloom. My camera was very happy to meet many species and colors.

Desert Botanical Garden is open from 8am till 8pm … (17 comments)

All five beautiful colors - I can see Oceanside is already on the wall.
  The 2018 Paint Colors Of The Year For Your Home from the major paint companies

 Each year professionals in creative trades wait with bated breath for the color of the year to be announced. This announcement, much like the groundhog's shadow, is looked to as a prediction of the design landscape ahead. But unlike the shadow, these decisions truly affect what the future holds.
So if you're tired of millennial pink, burgundy or turquoise, all who have held the title of Color … (6 comments)

phoenix real estate: MicroLiving Show at Shemer Art Center - till March 11, 2018 - 03/07/18 01:30 PM
I am always surprised how many home features can fit in 400 sq.ft. - today's visit to the SouthWest MicroLiving show at the Shemer Art Center was no different.
There were 12 micro housing and garden structures on display.
I was able to speak with the builders and artists and to learn more about how one can own a home like the exhibits.
The picture above is the first home I visited. The stairs felt so comfortable and inviting to test them - so I did. And took photos from above - of the living room, kitchen, bedroom.
The focus on this year's show were … (22 comments)

phoenix real estate: Single Story Home with 5-Story Garden - 11/26/17 10:47 AM
It's a beautiful, sunny day in Tempe - the temperature is 75 Degrees F, ( 24 C).
An idea has been sitting in my mind about making our patio wall into a 5-story vertical garden.
It helped to see that somebody had already done a similar project and is growing a healthy vegetable garden. There is drip irrigation and food-grade lining on each vegetable bed.
