    THANK YOU for the posts & pix. There are plenty of microwave options for hiding strategies and we'll get to that when the general floorplan works the way you need it to work. Yes, I liked your revision drawing! I'm going to color the windows for future reference (mine I guess). I have another one to send up after I get work well underway (no sense in saying "under control"). It's my EUREKA moment. I'm thinking of the persimmon color in your previous pictures. It really is awesome with an old-world-meets-new-world color scheme. What is you color scheme? Anyhoo, check out this site for inspiration: http://weburbanist.com/2009/03/17/10-of-the-coolest-counter-surface-material-designs/ Also, can you browse WINDOW sites for the next hour and pick three that would enhance your kitchen any way you like? I need to do a little--ah--remodeling that includes a new window. Please post them. You'll love it, I promise. If not, feel free to fire me. What's pup's name? And does the little one need a built-in bed under the counter (BTW, Houzz has the very best pictures for dog life!!!!!!!!).

    Wow, spring cleaning has really changed since my mother was a kid. [g] They had feather matresses and had to cut them open and wash and hang out to try the mattress cover and then fill them back up again every spring, in addition to scrubbing every inch of the house. 'Refreshing the mantle' really wasn't on the list. [g]

    The valence over the sink doesn't bother us as much now that the other components are upgraded lol. Adds to the old world charm of the home I suppose haha. Olive is an interesting suggestion. We are trying to use different colors in all the rooms yet keep them somewhat related. The living room is BM shaker beige and the dining is BM Nantucket grey. Those historical colors are killer.

    We can't sell our house - Any advice?

    Q

    Comments (76)
    Do you have a real estate agent or a Realtor? Realtors use MLS. Is your home on the MLS? Get the home on MLS. It makes a huge difference. Do some investigating research on how your house is being marketed. Don't just ask agent. Imagine being a buyer & look on line see what's out there. Go visit other open houses. Compare how other sold homes & their marketing. Copy what worked. Make sure 3% is being offered to buyers agents. I have been a Realtor & real estate agent. Home owners homes should always be on their local MLS, because that's where the buyer agents do most their searching to show homes. Was there a lot of foot traffic during open home? If not, then there not even seeing the home & therefore it's probably not the home/lot. It probably means it's not fully marketed, or over priced. Maybe even call a few local Realtors & ask their opinion. If 1 ends up helping you out consider using them to re-list. 4-6 months on exclusive agreement suggested in a hot market. If an agent can't sell by then. Get another one. It also prevents the game of over pricing to get a exclusive listing then calling the seller to reduce price which should of been the beginning price. That just wastes time. Your real estate agent should be able to help resolve this, but a 2nd 3rd opinion would give you an unbiased opinion. Best of luck.

    Maryanne,
    You were so close, but #3 was chickadee. I do get tons of goldfinches, but I don't know where they nest.

    If the name tobacco hornworm is mentioned anywhere in earshot of Gary during the garden season, he gets hysterical. I swear he breaks out in a sweat, LOL.
    The contest was fun!

    remy, i thought finch because the first time i saw one, was in your front yard tree (that subsequently got the axe after a storm???)

    fun game. they all were.

    have a great night everyone

  • luckyladyd

    Thanks, guys! That was fun! Remy had us all going with the smoke and devils lingo!

    Have to go to work, but I just wanted to check in to see how the contest was going and say hi.

    Have a good day, all!

    Dottie

    HI, Ladies-Just want to post that I mailed Gale's box today with the conformation #0305 2710 0003 0563 1226.

    Remy. I'm with Gary. Tell him I think he is a very smart man! I wouldn't want any of them around either.

    Congratulations, Dottie. I always enjoy all the guesses for the games although I hardly ever try to get them.

    Have a great day, all. Blessings, Margaret

  • luckyladyd

    Boy is my computer slow tonight. There must be a ton of people online or something. . .

    Thanks for all the congrats notes, everyone! It was a fun contest. So, Jeanne, am I supposed to make up one now? I'm not remembering how this works . . do I send the questions to you, or just post them?

    Dottie

  • sandlapper_rose

    Dottie, unfortunately we are going to stop with the guessing at this point. I was doing it so there would be something interesting to read while we were waiting for our boxes to get mailed. Now that we are towards the end of the month, I know we will have postings as boxes are mailed and received.
    The guessing seems to have been fun for lots of members so maybe a hostess in one of the months coming up will do this again. Anyway, I am glad everyone had fun!
    It's getting to be bedtime for me so good night for now.

    Thanks Jeanne!
    Remy

  • drgulley

    I wanted to wish everyone a happy first day of Spring. :O)

    Things have been really busy here and I haven't posted in quite a while.

    Looks like everyone had fun with the game. Congrats Remy & Dottie!

    Carol, that is no problem. I apologize I did not see your question on a previous post until today. I am actually running a little late with Jeanne's box as well. It is almost complete though. I am waiting for something I have on order to come in. It's hard to believe today is already the 20th. Where does the time go?

    I have another daylily throwing up a scape. It took 3 1/2 weeks for my first daylily of the season to bloom once I saw scapes. I sure hope it doesn't take as long for this one.

    I hope everyone has a nice weekend.

    Dianne

  • luckyladyd

    Oh Carol! I think your calla lily bulbs came to you moldy! I think that because I ordered some for myself, too and I waited until today to open them and mine were moldy. I'm so sorry! I will send you a replacement very soon. So sorry.
    Dottie

    hey everyone.

    sounds like some great boxes so far. i'll be posting for april in a few days. i don't have the logo anymore, can someone send it to me, please? i tried to copy it from one of the other posts, but it didn't take.

    frances, thanks kindly for the castor beans, i received them in saturday's mail. i had put a branch aside, but i have no clue what happened to it and i've grown accustomed to growing them. i certainly appreciate your kind gesture.

    dottie, one time i brought this amazing lot of various bulbs at an auction and then put them aside to plant when the time was right. when i opened them, soe were moldy, some were shriveled and dried and others were bug infested. what a waste. sure hope the company you ordered from is reputable and stands by their product.

    i have so many tomato seedlings, remy would be proud LOL hoping they make it to the next stage. and for some crazy reason, all the beans and corn and squash plants that i started are really popping. i don't know why i didn't wait and sow them directly in the ground.

    with all the green popping, i noticed today one lone hyacinth in bloom. can't wait for another week or so for the remainder to bloom. i have notice that an entire area has been invaded by a certain squirrel, and he's not going to win this year.

    i watched the movie the nanny diaries. i DO NOT recommend it!

    was the first day of spring crazy or what? we had freezing temps, rain and some snow. then that all went away and the sun came out blazing. so strange.

    so carol/dottie...explain this adopt a wolf thing. sounds interesting. and where is this wolf?

    well, it's time to call it a night. survived my first week of work, it was a long and exhausting one. one down, 5 to go!

    hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and you have a good week ahead.

    be well,
    maryanne

  • hazelnutbunny

    Well, Lili got her first goose egg & black eye today! And she's not even 3 months old! Adora tried to pick her up, but dropped her -on the hard kitchen floor! That's how she got the goose egg. Then, Lili was crying (of course!), so Adora tried to make her better by giving her her pacifier, but since Lili was lying on her belly, she couldn't find her mouth....Hence, the black eye. (she was trying REALLY hard to find her mouth!)
    *UGH*
    I can't take the baby out in public for a least a week! There's no telling what people will think!

    I hope everyone is having a less exciting day than we are here! :O)

    Melissa

  • sandlapper_rose

    Oh my, Melissa, I hope Lili is okay. They are so fragile when they are little like that. A hug for all three of you - you, Adora, and Lili.
    It is so pretty here today that I had to spend a little time in the garden. Plants are popping up left and right. Our dogwoods and azaleas are starting to bloom. I checked on my winter sowing jugs and nearly all of the seeds have sprouted. We must have had just the right weather for them this year. Remy, I think the daylily seeds and Sophie's Choice tomato seeds that you sent to me are growing. Definitely sprouts in the jugs that look like they are the right thing.
    I keep trying to remember to pass this along - if you have decorative statues in your gardens and the paint begins to fade, you can repaint them! The paint on my gnomes at one point was fading really bad. I repainted them - I think it was a year ago - and then put that sealing coat on them and they look just like new. I had not tried it before and it worked great.
    Well, on to the next project - time to cook dinner really soon.

  • veeja11

    My box is packed and will fly tomorrow, sorry I am late. Dottie my calla's are not moldy. I love the color, can't wait to see them bloom. Maryanne, my wolf lives at the internation wolf center. you can see her by going to www.wolf.org she is a gray wolf. born may 5th 2004. she is the dominant female in her pack. she is in the exibit pack.
    funny I was owned by a wolf hybrid for years we almost named her maya. Dottie picked a perfect gift for me. thankyou Dottie. Bunny please send Lily to me. hate to think of that precious lil girl with a black eye. anyone have any extra tomato seeds. I don't seem to have any this year. tomatoless in seattle.

  • mellen

    Margaret, your box is packed and will go out in tomorrow's-Tuesday's-mail.

    Cold, windy, rainy day here. Yuck.
    Mary Ellen

  • luckyladyd

    Hey Carol,
    I have tomato plants to spare! Would you like determinate or indeterminate? They can be on their way tomorrow . . just let me know which you'd like.
    Glad to hear your callas were not moldy. At least half of the ones I ordered for myself were. Maybe I shouldn't have left them near the flourescents with the other plants before I planted them. . . .

    Cheers,
    Dottie

  • dieg01991

    Hello ladies!
    I am back from my trip to NC. It was great, nice and relaxing. The weather was so nice and everything was in bloom, just beautiful. Now I'm back to dreary MN and everything is brown and blah. They are even talking snow this weekend...UGH!!! Can I go back to NC? ;-)

    Mellen, I had your box all packed up and sitting next to my suitcase on Thursday. I thought my husband put it in the car when he loaded everything up, but he didn't. :-( So, needless to say, I didn't get it mailed out until yesterday. Sorry I'm late!! Hope you like what I sent!

    Take care everyone,
    Amy A-z

  • Debra Andruska

    I'm shipping my package out tomorrow, sorry for the delay in shipping. I've had so much going on lately. My favorite pet parrot died on Friday. He wasn't sick, and was talking so much on thursday, plus eating too. I have no idea why he died, other than his age. I purchased him from a pet shop, and took a chance purchasing him without knowing his age. Also, on Sunday (night) one of our cars were stolen out of our driveway! We have no idea how they took the car without making any noise! We have 2 dogs that LOVE to bark at everything, but not this time! I've never heard of anything happening like this before in our neighborhood. The car was a honda civic, it was in between a new Chevy Trail blazer and a Hyundai, why would they go for the civic and not the blazer? The blazer was last in the driveway, my Son thinks that they used a special device (something like rollers) under the car to move it out. He noticed marks in our grass. I still can't belive someone could steal a car that was sandwhiched in between two other cars!

    Deb

  • veeja11

    Debbie, so sorry for your losses, especially the living one, they are like our children. dottie I belive I want determinate tomatoes and will happily pay postage. Debbie your box flew today, I had to amend your box, I had you mixed up with someone else. luckily I caught it before I mailed the pkg. happy spring to all carol

  • drgulley

    Jeanne, Your package went out yesterday and it's on the way. You should be receiving really soon.

    Debbie, I am so sorry to hear about your parrot. I lost one of my pond goldfish today that I have had almost two years. He was about 9 inches and had beautiful long flowing fins. I know it's silly to get that attached to a fish but I had him for 2 years and I got used to seeing him every day.

    Amy, glad to hear you had a nice trip to NC. Hopefully your weather will get nice soon!

    Maryanne, sounds like you have been having up and down temps as well. Hopefully spring is here now for good. It has been raining most of the day here. The plants will love it.

    Melissa, I hope Lili is feeling better. Poor baby.

    Dianne

  • remy_gw

    Hi All,
    I've been so busy! I got all my tomato seeds planted yesterday. I'm glad that is done!

    Deb,
    I'm so sorry your parrot died. They really become part of the family, and I know how much you love your animals. I've had birds look fine one day and die the next. It is so odd.
    That is really weird about the Honda. If you asked me to guess which one would get stolen, I would of picked the Trail Blazer.

    Amy,
    I'm glad to hear you had a nice trip. Don't mention the "S" word! I haven't seen any in awhile and hope you don't either.

    Jeanne,
    So great to hear about the seeds! It will be nice to see what the daylily looks like. I know that will be next year, but I'll be expecting a pic, lol.

    Melissa,
    Poor baby! Thank goodness she is ok. Poor Adora too. She probably feels so guilty.

    Maryanne,
    I wrote an email to you a few days back, and my computer froze up and I lost it! I forgot about sending you a new one. Anyway, it mostly said Thank You : )
    I thought of you yesterday morning. I went to the volunteers meeting at the Botanical Garden. We had a meet and greet with the new director. He is David Daehnke, the Garden Guru. he was running a place in New Jersey, but he mentioned the Philadelphia area, but . I can't remember what job he had there, or maybe he lived there, lol,I can't remember.He sort of went through his resume quick, but I though of you.
    I'm proud of you for all the tomato seedlings, not so sure about that corn though, lol. Start hoping for warm weather!

    Carol,
    I'm glad to see Dottie has got you covered.
    I though of you the other day. I was behind a car with a Washington license plate and it was from a Renton(the town where Carol used to live) dealership.

    Shirley,
    I was also thinking of you. I hope you are ok with your mom and all.

    Have a good night everyone,
    Remy

  • luckyladyd

    Jeanne, Thank you for the lovely prize! It's very pretty and I will use the stickers, too. I had forgotten all about winning it and had a nice surprise in the mailbox today when I got home.

    Debbie, I'm so sorry about your pet. It sounds like he was happy and well right up to the end. I hope you can take some comfort believing that he probably didn't experience fear or pain. And the whole car thing! That's amazing. It reminds me of years ago when I had a boyfriend who had a new Cadillac. He parked it in front of his house on the street and went outside to find it gone from the parking place one night. Looking up and down the block, he spotted his car in the middle of the road several houses down. It had been stolen, but had run out of gas! (He was famous for running the tank down to the "E"!) That was one time it paid off!

    Carol, I sent you a few tomato plants this morning before I read your answer to the determinate question - so I just mixed them. I think perhaps only one I sent is indeterminate. I also sent some seeds. Enjoy!

    It's very cold here tonight, too. Supposed to be 28. I thought we were heading into nicer weather than that!

    Dottie

  • earthlydelights

    hi everyone.

    deb, according to the national insurance crime bureau, honda civics are among the highest stolen vehicles. the other two aren't even on the radar of thieves. not that that's any consolation, but it's just a fact. so sorry to hear about your bird, i know how much he meant to you, if it's the same one you used to post about.

    carol, once my seedling take, i'll have plenty of plants to share if you need/want more. just say so.

    remy, you're welcome....not sure for what, but you're welcome LOL

    well, i'm 7 days into the job. tomorrow is payday. one positive thing. it's tough, even though this assignment is for a limited time, to sit around dissatisfied, unhappy, disgruntled people all day. then i have to come home to the miserables here and sometimes these two are to much to handle. what was i thinking?

    diane, welcome back. so what did you do in nc?

    shirley, how are you? where are you?

    oh my goodness, melissa. poor lili and adora. i hope by now everyone is doing a little better.

    mellen, how's the leg healing, you getting around alright?

    can you believe this month is almost over? dang, does time go fast.

    i'll be posting for april in the next few days, still working on some thoughts/ideas.

    it's so nice to see some things flowering. i actually passed a house the other day and all the daffs were in bloom out front. forsythia is just starting. i'm missing vital hours of doing what i need to do outside!!!!!

    weather went back to cold and wintery. i think by the weekend, it's supposed to warm up.

    hope everyone is doing well.

  • alwaysagarden

    Hi Ladies,

    Maryanne,
    so glad to hear your getting your first paycheck at your new job. You don't sound too happy there so I hope something alot better comes your way soon.

    Deb,
    So sorry to hear about your parrot. Breaks your heart when a pet dies.
    What a strange situation with your Civic being stolen like that! This month sounds like it has been a rough one for you.
    Was wondering if you recieved your package yet.

    Melissa,
    Hope Lili's goose egg is healing well... poor little girl!

    So glad Spring is finally here. Been doing alot of weeding and it has been pretty easy since we have had so much rain lately. Ground up here before amending it is red clay so it tends to dry up quickly.

    Take care all,
    Cindy

  • sandlapper_rose

    Dianne,
    I received my package from you today and thank you so much! I love the statue of the gnome for my garden. I'll try to take a picture and post it - we are having another day with rain today.
    Dianne also sent me a card, Easter candy, Elephant Ears, garden gloves, Johnny Jump Up seeds, and a Black Gamecock Iris. I am especially excited about the iris. Our local college football team is the Gamecocks and the school colors are garnet and black so that has been on my wish list for awhile now. Hopefully I can get it growing really well and share it with my younger daughter and son-in-law. They are big Gamecock fans.
    Anyway, thank you so much. It was a wonderful package.

    Maryanne, did someone send you the logo or do you still need it? You are right, the month is almost over. I can't believe we are already this far into 2009!
    Deb, I am so sorry to hear about your parrot. Also, that is so unbelievable about your car being stolen. You need hugs and a break from all the bad things that have been happening. Hope you have turned the corner for good times now.
    Cindy, I heard from Marie in another group and she had a bad Spring snowstorm. It sounded like a lot going on with her, but she was fine.

    I wonder if some of our members who have not stopped in for awhile might come back once we get into the gardening season. Come to see us, ladies. We miss you! (Of course, gardening season is here in SC - everyday there is something new popping up from the soil or something new blooming. Once the rain stops I will take some pictures.)

    Hi, Ladies-I received my box from Mary Ellen (mellen) yesterday & wanted to list all the great gifts received when I had the time to take it all in & didn't want to miss anything she sent.

    First, I love camels & sheep. Wherever & whenever I shop I always look for these items. I can find the sheep quite a bit but camels are almost impossible to find. This great lady found a magnet & a key chain with a camel on them. Also sent a sheet of stickers with I (red heart)camels on them. I was so pleased with each of these & can hardly believe she found them. I love them!! Now for the rest of the contents: a large hershey candy bar which my DH & I enjoyed tonight while watching Wheel of Fortune. With my love for chocolate it was quite a feat for me to share!, a darling inspirational Wind Chime, a Finch Feeder Magic Thistle Sock which the birds will enjoy,(I do intend to put thistle seed in it so they will enjoy more than the sock) character plant ties with frogs on them,(darling),a magnetic shopping pad, garden marking pen for outdoor use, (maybe this one will last on my WS markers),Turtle Sundae & Cinn Ful Nut coffee, a votive holder with my initial on it & lovely scented candle, lavender Hand Sanitizer, bath soap gel, & the following seeds: Cosmos(cosmic orange), Cosmos "Daydream", Nemesia,"Masquerade",Achillea "Summer", Sweet Pea (Lavender Flush, Pink Hyacinth Bean Vine, dark purple Delphinium, Delphinium, "Magic Fountains", Blue & Lilac-Pink, Giant Fuchsia Foxglove, Knautia (pastel), Dicentra,(I will be looking this one up) & Ornamental Cucumber. I hope I haven't missed anything. I am sure much thought was put into all the things sent as most were on my list of wants.
    It was such fun seeing each thing that was sent & Mary, I thank you soooo much! You made this RR so very special for me & I do so appreciate it.

    Sounds like all the boxes being received are just great & it has be a delightful RR, reading all the posts & getting to know each of you a little better.

    Margaret (Thanks Mariann, for the tag)

    Hi everyone, happy Friday!!
    Deb, I'm so sorry to hear about your parrot!!! The same thing happened with a cat of mine a few years back. I have no idea why he died. He was happy and healthy in the morning, and gone by the time I got home that evening. It was SOOO devastating and it took me a really long time to accept it!!! My thoughts are with you during this difficult time and I hope that you will find your inner peace.

    Dianne, I don't think it's silly to feel bad about losing your goldfish. I had 3 that were getting really big after having them in my pond for 3 years. I lost them this year and I cried, I felt like a little kid. My husband is so understanding! :-) My pond heater was not working very well this year and it was a very cold winter. I don't know if it just got so cold that they ran out of air, or froze or what. Poor things.

    Dottie, that story about your old boyfriend's car is hilarious. I used to run my tank down to E and my dad always nagged me about it. Now I can tell him this story! lol!

    I am so excited for the April exchange, I will finally be able to do plants this time!!!! Woohoo!! I walked around the gardens on Sunday and there are so many things that are popping up, it really gave me Spring fever bad. But, it got cold again here and it's been snowing a little. It looks like we'll stay in this cold snap for a few more weeks, yuck. I am so sick of this freezing weather!

    Sounds like everyone is getting some really great boxes (as usual). This is so much fun!!

    Dianne,
    Oh yes, you had very carefully packed the gnome and he did just fine. It stopped raining long enough today that I placed him near my daffodils and pansies and took his picture. For the others, although you can't see it, there is even a little ladybug on his shovel. He is adorable.
    Here he is!

  • earthlydelights

  • wynative

    Hi all!

    I am sorry that I have been MIA!! I haven't had any time to do anything that I wanted to in the last 7 weeks :(

    I moved to a new house, filed for divorce, started a new job, had a pipe break causing a flooded basement, in the middle of a 12 day stretch at work, had a 4 day blizzard - took 1/2 days to dig out, another one is on the way and I am just waiting for the next thing to happen.....

    Calgon - take me away!

    Jeanne,

    Gail emailed me and said she would get back to you - did she? Please send me an email to let me know what I need to do to make this month right :)

    Thanks,
    Marie

    Marie,
    My goodness, you've had some stuff going on! I knew you need to and found a new job. Plus I knew about finding the new house, but I didn't know about the divorce. I'm sorry to hear that, even being the right decision for your life, I'm sure it has been very difficult.
    Sorry about the pipe and the snow storm too! Spring is coming though : )

    Jeanne,
    That's a cute gnome. I did find the ladybug!

    Dottie,
    That was funny about the car.

    Ok, got to go check the other post,
    Remy
