When I read about this month's contest, three songs popped into my head immediately! That's right...three distinctively annoying songs, that dig deep into my brain matter and get mired there indefinitely. The worst part of it, is that I do not know more than a few lyrics to any of them...so I fin...

I decided to accept an impossible mission because a friend was needing my help. So, I grabbed my camera and my tape measure, and jumped in my Jeep!     My mission? Enhance the showings on a newly built $1.3 Million home. The challenge: Feedback from showings is that the main living area is too da...

  I'm sure you've experienced it. You arrive at a home for a preview or a staging, and you've been told that no one is home.

I truly love the state of Colorado! It's the seventh state I have lived in...and the last! For someone who likes photography, there isn't a better place to live, and I don't even have to leave my own backyard. Spring is always interesting here, because we could have temperatures in the 80's one d...

 Before I  took my formal training, before A Wonderful Space was born, I received my first staging call. I had mentioned to a friend that I was thinking of becoming a stager, and she passed my name on to a mutual acquaintance. The call was from an agent who was trying to sell his own vacant renta...

 Spring is such an interesting time of year in Colorado! One day, the high temperatures are in the 30's, the next they're in the 70's! And, sometimes, we have big changes all in the same day! Today turned out to be a pretty nice day. The sun came out and the air started to warm up, but the day st...

 My daughter called me Friday night around 5 pm. "Mom, I got tickets to the Avs game in two hours! Do you want to go?" I couldn't remember the last time I had been to a hockey game, so I said yes! We had SO MUCH FUN!!! We were 18 rows from the ice (free tickets from an attorney friend of hers) an...

 When I was training to be a stager, my instructor told the class that she likes to create little bath arrangements and tuck them in the towels. She leaves them with the seller as a complimentary gift, and considers it to be a trademark of sorts.  I thought it was a clever idea, and started think...
