spokane real estate: Manito's Tropical Plant Sale brings a taste of Spring to Spokane! - 03/02/12 12:25 PM
Spokane in March is hardly inspirational.  Oh, sure, I do get excited when I see the first sprouts pop out of the ground, but I am not quite so naive that I take that as a sure sign that Spring will follow close behind.  Sometimes it happens . . . more often it doesn’t! 

So when I saw a recent challenge from Paula McDonald entitled “What is Springing Up in Your Area?” I must admit I grumbled a little. I just knew other AR members would have posts with great pictures of blossoming trees and a population in flip-flops, while mine would be showing … (8 comments)

Looking for the security of a gated community? A place where your summers can be spent playing or traveling without worrying about lawn maintenance? Where you don't have to wake up on a snowy winter's morning and abandon your p.j.'s and coffee for a snowsuit and a shovel?

This 2003 home features two bedrooms, an office/den and two baths.  The master bedroom is backed by sliding doors leading to a patio and the fenced green space. Large windows, an open floor plan and cathedral ceilings create … (3 comments)

spokane real estate: A bargain is only a bargain if it fits! - 02/06/12 04:28 PM
February is a great month for bargains! Who doesn’t love  to find the perfect piece of clothing on a clearance rack at their favorite store? How about shoes marked down 65 to 85% with another 15% off if I buy them now? Count me in! 

But sometimes, the clearance items just don’t work.  The shoes pinch my toes! OUCH! Or they are too big! Flop, flop, flop.  And if they ARE just the right size, the heels are way too high or they are . . . .well . . . downright hideous! 

Sometimes those bargain shoes just don’t fit! They don’t fit my … (63 comments)

spokane real estate: MAY THE FORCE BE WITH THOSE FSBO'S! - 11/05/11 01:30 PM
My little granddaughter, Annabelle, recently celebrated her fifth birthday.  When asked what theme she wanted for her party she chose Star Wars! HUH?! Where did that come from?! Seems that Annabelle and her Mama have been playing Lego Star Wars in their down time and Anna has adopted the Star Wars cast as her new circle of friends. She has a bizarre crush on Lego Luke and carries on conversations with him all day long. 

So, being the perfect (o.k., I’ll admit it is more like wrapped-around-her-finger) Nana that I am, I volunteer to create a Lego Star Wars cake. I … (68 comments)

spokane real estate: Time to bring back the American CRAFTSMEN! - 09/04/11 05:38 PM
This morning, on my Facebook sidebar, an ad appeared for a local Spokane architect, Sam Rodell.  It enticed me to click because it showed an image of a small, sustainable house . . .definitely an interest of mine.  I was a little disappointed when I arrived, however,  because most of the featured homes in the architect's gallery were not in any way small and any small structures that did appear seemed to be outbuildings for some larger structure. Many of the details were exquisite but obviously over-the-top expensive!  Sam Rodell has a mission statement that I totally agree with, "Build Once, Well." But, how do we make this … (6 comments)
