October is the start of a really busy season in our home. There are hoards of birthdays, family and school activities and the approach of the upcoming holiday season. There is so much to do and so little time. But, with just a little bit of planning things don’t have to become overwhelming.

Make a list of what you need to do to get your home in order so that fixing breakfast is a breeze not a challenge and so that keeping the house warm at night doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Don’t wait until New Year’s Day to make a resolution that will save you time and money.

"Winterize" your home now before it gets to cold. Recycle this seasons decorations, do your holiday shopping when things go on sale – for real, clean and “de-clutter” a little every day and all that you do will equal less wear and tear on you and the home that you love. Don't save all the indoor and outdoor projects for the last minute. Enjoy and breathe!

Fall is one of the best times for backyard bird
watching, so here’s how to get ready!

Yes the signs of fall are here… Chilly evenings… Leaves changing… Vacationing birds?

Fall is one of the best times for backyard bird feeding, because it’s an opportunity to see many colorful birds that are not normally in your area. This is migration time for many species who are on winter vacation and passing through your area to get to their tropical vacation destinations. They are also still wearing their bright summer colors while traveling, making them even more fun to observe.

Taking Inside Designs Outdoors

In the current economy, we all know extra incentives and add-ons increase resale value to current homes and new properties. As early as 2007, homeowners began requesting greater attention to outdoor living spaces with upscale renovations including kitchens, courtyards and decoration, according to an annual home design survey to architects by the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

More recently, a survey from the 2008 National Association of Homebuilder's 2008 among designers, architects, marketers and builders found that 65 percent of luxury homebuyers will be expecting outdoor features for their homes, including fireplaces, gourmet outdoor kitchens, furniture, and decorative accessories among the list of other outdoor living indulgences.
