Spring is in the Air...

Hello all...yesterday was spent either shopping or entertaining (don't tell my clients because I was really supposed to be working on their tours...shhhh....).

My daughter and I are looking to for furnishings and accessories to Feng Shui our condo and I must say the pickings around this area are so slim, it makes you want to move to California just to find the things you are looking for.

Actually, not the area I'm living in right now..I'm talking off the island. Okay, Wal-Mart isn't exactly the top of the line in the furniture and accessories department, but I did get a black vase for a steal at $7 and what I call "sticks" to put in it. These "sticks" looked like shaved pine but they stand about four or five feet tall. I will take a picture one day when I can figure out how to hook it up to this computer.

I also found at Walmart what I call a fake plant that is beautiful. I know the Feng Shui masters will have a field day telling me no, no, no, REAL PLANTS, but this one is beautiful and looks so real!

So for the Feng Shui masters' Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval, we headed to the garden department and I picked up a beautiful yellow and red-petaled dahlia. I had never seen one so pretty. When I saw it, I immediately got the Feng Shui thing going on and I snatched it up. It's sitting on top of my wooden steps out back so that when I open the door, it's the first thing and I see and when guests visit, that's the first thing they see. Immediate Feng Shui Heaven because it's nestled in between the red geraniums and other flowering annuals. I will take pictures soon.

After Walmart, we headed to the seafood store and bought a couple pounds of crabmeat (for crabcakes) and a dozen soft crabs for my son because he was coming for dinner after we got home.

But, before getting home, I stopped at the plant store and bought me two more plants. Two beautiful hanging hybrid Fuchsias. I had one many years ago and just loved the way the flowers looked like tiny ballerinas and because they brought positive vibes, I just had to have one - errr - two.

So, they're sitting on my balcony waiting to be potted and hung but when I get the balcony finished, it's going to be paradise. Again, pictures will be forthcoming.

And then...when I knew I should be working on tours...I fell asleep on the loveseat in the living room after American Idol and just now got out of bed. I'm exhausted, so I knew that was the reason for that, but work must be done so I'm off to tour land...hope everyone has a wonderful day!


  1. That sounds like a good day. Is your weather still good? Ours has improved & by the weekend should be pretty good so we should have a good RV trip across the pass.

  2. Weather is fantastic, Dick. Probably in the low 80s today. I took about a mile walk with the pooches, came back, threw them inside and walked out to my dock. I sat on the bench watching the sun go down. Life just doesn't get any better.
