      I am so thankful for my Cousin Natasha and her infectious laughter!  Recently we were both counselors at our church youth camp.  On our last evening, we were blessed to have a small carnival-- complete with clowns, face painting and games.  Natasha was surprised by this beautiful lady clown that was carrying a small mouse puppet that seemed surprisingly real.  I captured her at just the right moment and it's just priceless!!  God has blessed me by letting me love and enjoy this sweet and beautiful young lady.   REAL ESTATE STAGING IS MADE EASY BY READY 2 STAGE HOME STAGING & REDESIGN.  WE CAN MAKE YOUR FOR SALE PROPERTY MORE APPEALING TO POTENTIAL BUYERS.  SIMPLE CHANGES AND EASY FURNITURE PLACEMENT CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE.  WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?   STAGING COSTS MUCH LES...

This time of year is packed with so many activities to keep us occupied....let us pause and reflect on our freedoms.  We are so blessed to be able to speak, live and worship freely.....let us not take this for granted.  Soldiers, bravely sacrificing life and limb so that we have these freedoms, deserve our utmost gratitude and respect, and are blessed by our daily prayers.   While we are celebrating "Independence Day" with family picnics, swimming, watching fireworks and relaxing with a day off of work, let us take a moment of our day to be in earnest prayer.....for our families, for our finances, for our President, for our soldiers, and for our country.  May this moment bring about a peace and reassurance that God is in Control. To each of you on this "Independence Day"......Let Freedo...

http://www.realestateshows.com/show.php?id=405514&resize=1   May we never forget the sacrifices and love given to us by former and current military personnel.  Each one has chosen to serve this country in a non-selfish and big hearted capacity that we can never repay.  Take time today to pray and give thanks to God for each person involved in preserving the freedoms that we so easily take for granted.  Also, pray for protection for those currently serving to keep peace and freedom--And give hugs and kisses to those around you--God is good and we need to especially thank Him for His many,many blessings.  Peace and love to you all from Tennessee on this beautiful Memorial Day!   Lori Donegan Ready 2 Stage Home Staging & Redesign www.ready2stage.com (423)506-3718

We staged a house with an antique sofa--and nothing else--in the living room.   "What are we going to do with that?!" We chose a neutral slipcover to give it an instant update.  We used an outdoor chaise lounge cushion to make the back smooth and straight and some extra pillows to wrap and fill the arm cover.  Turned out great!  We added some throw pillows, wall art, accessories and some creative lighting to make a cozy living space. The bay window in the room was also very outdated with lacy ruffled swags and window-covering vertical blinds; along with an antique lamp sitting in front.  With just a few simple tricks we brought this room up-to-date.  By opening those blinds, adding tab top panels and updated accessories we say good-bye to 1900 and hello 2009.   The home sellers thought ...

Hey all,  Need some creative ways to attract lookers to Open Houses.  In our area, the Realtors complain that their Open Houses are a big flop--with only a few people showing up.  Please provide ways that you attract interest and just how you advertise for your Open Houses.  I would love to do Open House Staging in my area--but for now, the Realtors are not interested.  Need Realtor ideas and stager ideas.  Thanks in advance to all you A/R blog commentors!!   Lori Donegan Ready 2 Stage www.ready2stage.com ready2stage@gmail.com
