No, not everything is perfect in this stager's life and business, but so much is going well that I'm a bit beside myself.
Many of you know that I am a person of faith. My son is the pastor of a new Jacksonville Beach church. It's a cross between a coffee bar and a contemporary music club. Huge black & white pictures of beaches landmarks grace the walls. www.OceanCityChurch.org. The last few services have been off-the-charts, goose-bump good. Sigh!! I'm happy!
I see miracles happening in the lives of family and friends in crises. I celebrate the markers of progress with those in successful cancer treatment and grieve with those who did not have good news. Farewell Bonnie, my dear friend. I will miss you. I look forward to seeing you on the other side of the rainbow someday.
It's a Wonderful Life, anyway, in spite of struggles and challenges. We have entered the world of luxury vacation rentals. It's not easy but a great opportunity to help property owners, mostly from out-of-town, to update and beautify their investments. I'll share more later as we work through gradually evaluating the problem units.

Join us for a tour of the first annual RESA Christmas Showhouse on Sat., December 8th from 11:00AM to 4:00PM, Queens Harbour on Atlantic Blvd. $10 with a ticket or $15 at the door. Park at the Queens Harbour Sports Complex for a quick shuttle to the house.
This low-country style home on the intra-coastal waterway looks like it belongs in the movie, Prince of Tides. The casual styling makes this home less like the typical over-decorated designer showhouse and more like a comfortable southern retreat. The Safari Club homeowners have wonderful treasures and photos from travel to places like Africa and South America. The contemporary holiday decorations will surprise you. One chandelier has real jewelry on it. Lots of ideas and inspiration await your visit.
A very limited number of tickets are available. Get yours today at Cottage by the Sea, 3rd St. and 4th Ave. in Jax Beach or Design Elements at the Town Center.
*The RESA national Convention is the end of January 31st - February 2nd in San Francisco. I will be going. Please join me for a trip to remember. Details on the RESA site.
