Are you in need of some lightness during these dark cold days of winter?

Here are 5 Grace Notes to help bring clarity and lightness into your home~

Grace Notes:

1. Accessorize – it’s what separates us all!home assessories

Be smart about accessories. Accent pillows in a bold color or pattern, a bright-colored or white throw blanket and colorful fixtures will brighten up an otherwise dull room during the winter. For example, the palette of Mauve and Copper is a wonderful way to add lightness & brightness to your home in the winter months.

 

2. Don’t let your Rugs just lay there!

3. Declutter . . . and Discover!

4. Create brightness with Fresh Flowers

Brighten up your living room this winter with a vase of bright flowers and use a colorful arrangement to bring a fresh look to a kitchen or bathroom. Purchase bouquets of store bought flowers and let your light shine through the home!

5. Use Mirrors . . . in the right places!

I hope my Grace Notes brings Reorder ~ Refresh ~ Renew feelings to your home this winter season.

How a Question Can Inspire A New Movement

walking clubs for women business owners

My new trend to start tomorrow would be a Walking Network Meeting Club ~ not meeting for a breakfast – not meeting for coffee – not another meeting where everyone is sitting around, no more of that for morning meetings! I would like to start this trend with the Women Small Business Owners in my local area. Every week, we meet at a new Walking Meeting Place for what I would call a Walk & Talk where we discuss about business problems . . . but ALWAYS ending the walk with solutions for the week. This trend I have had in my business journal since July 1998  – stay tuned a trend could be developing with the blossom coming soon!

I would love to read everyone else’s trends – It’s a new year of beginnings . . . . . . .
