Wow...can you believe it? We won four Awards!

The Readers Choice Awards happen once a year, where newspaper readers nominate and vote for the companies they consider the best. These will include best restaurants, best dentist, best landscape company....etc, you get the drift.
So, for the second year in a row we've been nominated! Wow! This is so gratifying. Last year we were nominated and won a Gold for Interior Design. This year four medals! Things are looking up!

Can you believe it? We were nominated in four categories. Four! Categories! Did I mention four? 
They are Diamond medal award for Interior Design, Diamond medal award for bathroom renovations, Gold medal award for kitchen design, and last but not least, Diamond medal award for custom window treatments and blinds. 

 I am so grateful to all the people who voted for us, but more importantly, I am truly grateful to the clients who nominated us and to the trades that we employ, who make my little company look good. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I haven't been blogging much because I've  been busy with a few things on the go; helping organize a reunion for our high school, helped a couple of friends move, designed several renovations for clients, and of course, tried to have some R&R while summer was still here. Did we really have a summer?

I've got a lot of things on the go, one of the more important things is I'm getting my website redesigned. It's really time! I created it myself five years ago, and it has had that amateur look, well now it's time to give it a professional look. I've been saving and tagging websites from other designers whose website I like as a source of inspiration. I seem to have a look… It's very clean, with not too many graphics. I also need to get a whole whack of new pictures done for all the projects I've been working on.

I'm also working on setting up an eBay account. I have inherited some China, silver, and a bunch of fun stuff that are mostly antiques. Some are collectible, some not. There's just too much to keep so, decided to share it with the rest of the world so that they can enjoy these lovely things.

This is a sneak peek at one of the items that I will be selling. A tree sculpture made of brass on the granite base.

I'll be posting more often but I'm signing off for now, stay well, and remember to be kind to someone each and every day.
