Planning on selling this spring?
A couple of tips to help prepare your home for sale:
Brush up on the curb appeal - First impressions are everything. Make sure the exterior of your property is in tip top condition. Especially this time of year, make sure the landscaping is tidied up; paint touch ups done and lawn clean and tidy.
Make sure all your mechanicals are maintained and in good working order - one of the first things buyers look at is the mechanical are working. Have any problems address before listing and a cleaning if applicable. Do your touch ups inside - All homes show signs of wear. Baseboards, wall corners, etc. All show signs of wear and tear. A day with a gallon of paint can do wonders for improving how your home shows.
Clean and Declutter - Buyers need to be able to picture themselves in your space. That means being able to see past the clutter, and that's a lot easy when the clutter isn't there. It helps to have an objective eye, such as your REALTOR® suggest how to best prepare your home for sale.

How can I choose the right flowers for each occasion?
Flowers can express so many sentiments. With the vast array available, it can sometimes be difficult to choose the right one for the occasion.
To create a smile on birthdays or anniversaries, go for brightly coloured flowers. A child will especially enjoy flowers that are accompanied by a birthday balloon or stuffed toy. Exotic flowers might be enjoyed most by a special lady that appreciates uniqueness.
Brightly coloured flowers are also a great choice for a "get well" arrangement. Ensure they're scent free, particularly if they are destined for the hospital. Tulips and gebera daisies are safe options.
Choose roses on special occasions like Valentine's Day - roses say love, especially red ones. Other romantic flowers include lilies and orchids.
Giving flowers of sympathy takes special thought and tact. Carnations and gladiolus are often a good option. White or blue colours can signify comfort and peace.

Why choose custom framing for your photo or artwork?
Professional custom framers can transform a basic photo or piece of art into an extraordinary centrepiece for your home or office.
Experienced custom framers also have an intimate knowledge of colour, style, size, proportion and design to help you decide on the best frame for your home or office. Custom framing shops often have a wide variety of materials from which to choose and are able to source materials that are often hard to find and expensive to order individually.
When you hire a professional framer, you're also guaranteed lasting beauty. Over time art can fade, turn yellow and be damaged by light if not properly protected. The materials that custom framers use are scientifically designed to help guard your art. They use only the best acid-free mat board, UV-protected glass and specialized assembly techniques to ensure that your treasured item will stand the test of time.
