Choose your own style

The fall is a great time to reconnect with friends and family. No matter if you are having a sit down dinner or buffet style meal, we have Thanksgiving table suggestions your guests will remember long after the last piece of pie is served.

Most of Thanksgiving and Christmas table settings fall into one of four categories; Rustic, Natural, Chic and Classic.

Keep Kids Busy – Have their own craft table

A wonderful way to occupy the children, keeping them happily busy while waiting for Thanksgiving dinner to be ready is to have their own craft table. While adults have the ability to occupy themselves in various ways – tossing a football around outdoors, or watching the big Thanksgiving game, perhaps helping in the kitchen – younger children sometimes need a little more direction in the hours before the Thanksgiving turkey makes its appearance.

What you will need:

A large card table or breakfast nook table will do. Cover it with craft paper for a kid friendly good time.

  • Construction paper in all sizes and colors (particularly autumnal colors)
  • Glue sticks
  • Washable markers, crayons, colored pencils
  • Washable markers, crayons, colored pencils
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Miniature pumpkins
  • Gold craft paint
  • Painter’s tape
  • Several sponge brushes

You can add whatever you want to the list. I would avoid glitter for obvious reasons. Have the children mask off the lower half of the tiny pumpkins and paint the upper half gold, add a name card and use the as placement markers. The parents will love them and the children will be proud of their efforts. Use leaves cut from construction paper as decorations also.  Try making Pilgrims hats or Indian feathered hats with the kids. Guaranteed the children will love them.

Make an Unforgettable Centerpiece

A centerpiece sets the tone of your table. This easy to make centerpiece will WOW your guests.

Either use a 6 to 8 inch faux or real pumpkin and cut a large opening at the top. Remove the pumpkin seeds and strings if it is a live pumpkin. Spray the inside and outside with a bathroom cleaner which contains bleach. Let it dry for 15 minutes. Doing this will increase the life of your pumpkin vase.  Cut and add a tightly fitting Styrofoam block. Add twigs, perhaps spray-painted gold, feathers, roses, berries or anything which you desire.

A suggested arrangement: https://apumpkinandaprincess.com/diy-pumpkin-vase/

Utilize those Tiny Pumpkins

Most grocery stores and garden supply stores have them – small decorative squash, usually in orange or off white. Craft stores, such as Michaels have faux pumpkins, but be aware, they sell out quickly. The best time to purchase them is September or October.

Find Michaels at: http://www.michaels.com/fall/craft-pumpkins/922330439

We are going with the tiny real pumpkins (or squash). You will need one for each guest, including children, plus several extra for part of the table decorations. Get a six to eight inch pumpkin for the centerpiece. Make sure it sits securely so your centerpiece doesn’t tilt or roll.

Two choices for completing your tiny pumpkin place cards. One is painted with bright gold and the other, gold leaf, gilded pumpkins. A tutorial is available below.

Gold leaf tutorial: https://cupcakesandcashmere.com/diy/gilded-harvest-place-cards

Mask your pumpkins with blue painters tape about halfway down. Be sure to press it firmly into the crevasses. If you are going to spray the gold, set up a table outdoors and cover it with newspaper. Layer several coats of paint until your pumpkins are completely covered. After they dry remove the tape and reveal your beautiful place card pumpkins. Variation include dusting the painted part (while still wet) with glitter or with a touch of artificial snow after it is dry. Add a small tag of brown or colored paper. I prefer cutting a small leaf shape, writing the guests initial or name and attaching it to the stem with a piece of twine.

Rustic Table Setting

Warm inviting colors, candles in hurricane lamps, Pumpkins in various sizes and colors, flowers, plaid table runners in burnt orange, browns and deep gold, mismatched silverware wrapped in a napkin and tied with twine – a pumpkin or turkey salad plate – all come together to make a down-home rustic table setting.

Example at: https://www.potterybarn.com/pages/e-catalog/pottery-barn-catalog-holiday-d1-16.html

Natural Table Setting

White and off-white colors, Frosted LED Tea Lights (votive candles) and white on white napkins set the holiday spirit. A white pumpkin centerpiece would look great, don’t you think?

Chic Table Setting

White, gray and silver is the theme, candles large and small, gray pattern runner and matching napkins with silver napkin holders, solid gray and solid white dinnerware and that white pumpkin centerpiece would be the perfect finishing touch. The white tiny pumpkin place-card holders could be finished in silver to uniquely match your décor.

Classic Table Setting

Orange, greens and browns set this theme. Pumpkins galore grace the center in greens, orange and white. Wouldn’t our pumpkin centerpiece look simply grand? The brown rattan placemat is the perfect backdrop for your holiday plating and the Terracotta napkins finish the look.

What comes to mind when you think of the future?

Sci-Fi writers would have us think of spacious houses floating high in the sky, with the most revolutionary household furnishings and technology. Oh, and don’t forget the android robot cheerfully doing the laundry.

Well, while that is fiction, there is an element of truth – no, not floating houses, or Rosie the robot.

Eero’s vision for the home of tomorrow

As little as two years ago, watching several episodes of Game of Thrones in your bedroom was a touch and go situation.  You’d cross your fingers and hope the router in the living room wouldn’t freeze or cut out entirely.

Welcome to the age of the brand new, second generation, eero.  It’s twice as powerful as the original.  Although the eero WiFi access point is roughly half the size of its competitors, this second generation outperforms them by up to 50%.

Same size, same shape but the second generation eero is more than twice as powerful.

This little white box is so powerful, in your home, it can broadcast on three wireless bands with simultaneous coverage – the powerful tri band WiFi.  What exactly does this mean? How about downloading mega-files, or multiplayer gaming, VR or Face Timing – all at the same time.  No problem for the new eero system.

For Ethernet-wired houses, advanced entertainment systems, and people who work from home, we have the Pro eero system – three eero working seamlessly. Their built-in Ethernet ports and powerful hardware make this system the perfect solution. This system sells for $499.

eero now works with Amazon’s Alexa

Speech recognition software – such as Amazon’s Alexa – is the wave of the future. Eero partnered with Alexa to reimagine how people control WiFi around their home, using only their voice.

eero Beacons

While an eero may cover a small apartment or one level of your home, the companion piece(s) are eero beacons. These handy devices now plug into a standard outlet , allowing them to be in the background, not in your way.  The makers have even put a nightlight that turns itself on when light levels fall. This way you won’t trip over that forgotten toy, or shoe.

A eero system of one eero and one eero beacon is a perfect fit for your small home or medium sized apartment.  The table top eero simply plugs into your modem, the eero Beacon plugs into any outlet, it simply needs power. This system sells for about $299.

The eero system that would cover the typical home would have one eero and two eero Beacons. Remember, eero doesn’t replace your modem, it replaces your router – plug it into your modem and plug in the eero Beacons and you’ll get seamless WiFi coverage throughout your home. This system sells for $399.

Pacxo Stands Ready

Suggestions for Stress-free Travel

1-Back Everything Up

One of the most important things for you to do first is to keep both digital and physical copies of your passport, visas, driver’s license, birth certificate, health insurance card, serial numbers, and important phone numbers ready to go in case of an emergency.

You may only see these places once in your lifetime. Remember them forever with plenty of photos. Don’t worry about looking like a “tourist”. Great photos are the ultimate souvenir. They don’t cost anything, they’re easy to share and they don’t take up space in your luggage. Just remember once you have your shot to get out from behind the lens and have fun.

Backup your files & photos on an external hard drive as well as online with software like Backblaze. It’s cloud storage that is low cost and easy to use.

Check it out at: https://www.backblaze.com/

2. Pack Ear Plugs

This should actually be #1 on the list. Muffle the sounds of crying babies, the snoring man seated next to you, barking dogs, honking horns, the people in the next room, and more. They are truly a traveler’s best friend.

Find some at: https://mightyplugs.com/collections/best-earplugs-for-sleeping

3. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

No one ever thinks they’ll get sick, injured, or robbed while traveling. But it happens. With travel insurance you don’t have to worry about huge hospital bills or stolen bags when and if it happens.

Check it out at: https://www.insuremytrip.com/?linkId=DI874166&utm_source=bing&utm_medium

 

  1. Pack Smart – Avoid the Hassel

What’s in your wallet? Are you going to need your library card when you’re 6,000

miles from your local branch? Before you leave, take the time to go through your wallet and take out everything except the necessities – a universal credit card and a backup, an identification card, an insurance card, etc. Not only will it help you travel lighter, but if your wallet does get lost or stolen, you’ll have far less to replace.

You might also consider a wallet dedicated specifically for travel. If you’re the type of person whose day-to-day wallet is packed with cards, the pockets may be stretched out when you minimize the contents for travel. By having a travel-only wallet, your cards will have snug pockets so they can’t slip out accidentally.

 

Overweight-luggage fees are usually as hefty the bags that incur them. Some airlines charge upwards of $200 for over-weight suitcases. But those charges are easily avoided if you pack a luggage scale and weigh your bag before arriving at the airport.

This light-weight scale from Travelon costs $10. At: https://www.amazon.com/Travelon-Luggage-Scale-Black-Size/dp/B001CZP22S/ref=as_at/?creativeASIN=B001CZP22S&imprToken=K2Tru7phfhADeegNIvhQcQ&slotNum=6&s=apparel&ie=UTF8&qid=1488836909&sr=1-8&nodeID=9479199011&keywords=luggage+scale&linkCode=w61&tag=smartrav-20&linkId=8ba9a33b374d65c238a07800da5a086c

Other travel suggestion are using a hard-sided sunglasses case to organize phone cords and chargers, store cotton Q-Tipss and bobby pins in an empty pill bottle, use a shower cap to cover dirty shoes, place a cotton pad in compact makeup to prevent cracking, protect your razor blade with a binder clip and place a dryer sheet in shoes so they don’t stink up the rest of your suitcase.

As long as you stay within airlines’ bag-weight limits, you can stuff as much as physically possible into your suitcase. As well you should, since almost every carrier charges for checked bags and the more bags you check, the higher those fees climb.

One simple way to maximize suitcase space is to use a travel compression sac designed to save space by eliminating air surrounding the contents of the bag and doesn’t require use of a vacuum to suck out air. You just stuff the bag and roll to oust air inside.

  1. Surviving while on an Airplane

Once upon a time, airlines provided you with as many edible treats as your grandma. Now, many airlines sell marked-up snacks that you could buy in the store for a whole lot less. On some flights, they charge $5.29 for a bag of spiced nuts – you get the idea. So bring your own snacks (peeled apples or carrots, cream cheese filled celery, bagged candy, crackers, nuts) and save some money.

Whoever said “it’s the journey, not the destination” clearly never sat in the middle seat on an overcrowded flight. This is the perfect time to try out those ear plugs.

Fight back with these comfort items which make the coach-class experience a tiny bit more bearable.

Are you a book devotee?  The e-reader beats books to a pulp when it comes to travel. How else could one cart a virtual library of reading material along with them on a trip? Consider an Audiobook – lean back, close your eyes and just listen as your story unfolds…

Find it at: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NB86OYE/ref=aud_ft_ebkhqp?ie=UTF8&actionCode=AMZGAAP08241790T4&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKI

Even if you’ve never played tennis or lacrosse, this one is a must. Once you hit a certain age, sitting anywhere for several hours at a time can lead to aches and pains. But sitting in coach class is especially conducive to getting a neck ache, tight shoulders, or stiff back. Buy a tennis or  lacrosse ball and carry it with you wherever you travel. When the aches and pains kick in, pinpoint the tender muscles and use the ball to massage the aches away. It really works!

  1. Cruise Disasters

According to the site Cruise Critic, “As at land-based resorts, laundry and dry-cleaning charges on a cruise can be steep (approximately $2.50 to $3.50 to wash a T-shirt, for instance).” Even if you’re planning to pack enough clothing to avoid using laundry services during your trip, an upturned glass of wine or a leaky bottle in your suitcase could make a mess of your plans.

Pack travel laundry detergent and stain remover to use in case of a spill emergency. We like the Tide Stain Stick Liquid Pens, which fits in a pocket or purse and, at less than 3.4 ounces, is carry-on compliant. We also recommend Travelon’s Laundry Soap Sheets; they’re not a liquid, so they’re okay to bring on a plane.

  1. Avoid The Burn

If you’re traveling to a place where sunscreen is compulsory, like a beach resort in Florida or California, any sunblock for sale in local shops will probably be expensive. And 3.4 ounces (the maximum bottle size the TSA permits in carry-on luggage) of Coppertone won’t likely be enough for a good week of heavy-duty sun rays. The cost effective solution is to order solid  sunscreen online, before your trip. Neutrogena and Coppertone both offer stick sunscreen, which is allowed on a plane in any amount since it’s not a liquid (and it will never leak all over your stuff.)

Find it at: https://www.amazon.com/Coppertone-Sport-Sunscreen-Stick-Sweatproof/dp/B00D8IICQA/ref=sr_1_15_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1508451307&sr=1-15&keywords=coppertone+stick+sunscreen

  1. Regarding your Cash

Even if you disregard all other advice about carrying money, take this tip to heart:

Keep the majority of your cash in the hotel’s safe. Most have one and safe guarding your money should be one of your priorities. Also, whenever possible, divvy up your travel cash and even credit cards into multiple safe spots. If you’ve got all your money in one place, it only takes one time for a thief to ruin your vacation.

Under-clothing storage accessories have come a long way since neck pouches and money belts came onto the scene. Though those classics are still in favor, newer options include bra stashes, as well as long johns, underwear, and undershirts with built-in pockets for safe storage. On-body storage accessories are particularly useful if you’re sleeping somewhere that doesn’t have a secure place for cash and other valuables. And if you think a fanny pack is a substitute for a money belt, realize it can actually make you more vulnerable since it marks you as a tourist.

9. Treat Your Body Well

Travel can throw your body out of whack. When you’re moving from place to place it’s difficult to maintain a workout routine, and many of us slack off. Or we don’t sleep enough. Or we eat too many desserts – or Salt Water Taffies. You know the drill.

Remember to be kind to your body. Get enough sleep, stay hydrated, eat healthily, use sunscreen, and exercise often. And, yes, skipping desserts too I guess.(But, never pass up Salt Water Taffy.)

  1. Stay In Touch

Remember to call your family and friends from time to time. Maybe surprise them and go old-school by sending a postcard and maintain a strong connection with the people who matter.

How do you change the look of your bedroom for the changing season?

As summer ends and the colored leaves start to fall, daylight shortens – all marking the changing of the season. Fall is the most exciting time of year.  Time to retire your summer bedding and bring in the exciting  Autumn themes. Embrace the newest fall bedding and drape collections for a complete change of pace. First, what color would you like? Fall bedding sets feature rich, warm tones to make your bedroom cozy and inviting on the cooler fall nights.

Double Bedding/Full Sizes

 

Traditionally full sized beds were commonly used for two adults, but because they only provide 27 inches of space per adult (compared with 39 inches for a twin sized bed) this has changed. Today because of their narrow size and ability to fit into smaller bedrooms, full beds (also known as double beds in England and Canada) are the ideal solutions for a larger/taller child’s bedroom, teenager’s room, or a comfortable guest room.

Happy Shopping…

The future has arrived

You have to see them to believe it – they are just that incredible. Apple is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the iPhone and the buzz that has been going around has proved to be true with the new iPhone 8, iPhone 8 plus and the phenomenal iPhone X.

Apple has pushed forward with innovation after innovation bringing them to this moment – the Apple iPhone8 and iPhoneX. They have developed iPhones far more capable, far more intelligent, far more personal than ever before.

This is a huge step forward for iPhone.

Which is the perfect fit for you?

The new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus – Sleek,

Strong and Beautiful

The sleek design is all new, with a space-age strong glass in the front and the back of the iPhone. The glass design is reinforced by 50% steel and copper, making it the most durable ever.

The Aerospace-grade aluminum band beautifully matches the details and comes in three colors; Silver, Space Gray and a beautiful new Gold finish.  Apple successfully merged beauty with strength.

The iPhone 8 and 8 plus have two new dual speakers, 25% louder than the iPhone 7 and with a deeper bass. All this is microscopically sealed for dust and water resistance.

The new Apple iPhone 8 has a 4.7-inch retina display and the iPhone plus has a 5.5-inch display. They are renowned for their color accuracy, wide color gamut and 3-D touch technology into the display. And for the first time in an iPhone true tone technology;  a 7-layer color process makes sure there is a beautiful precise view.

Inside the New iPhone 8 and 8 Plus

Inside the new iPhone is a brand new chip Apple has dubbed A11 Bionic, the smartest chip ever in a smartphone.

It’s a 64-bit design, 4.3 billion transistors and six-core CPU.

The A11 includes faster low-light autofocus, improved pixel processor for sharpness and texture and hardware multiband noise reduction. The GPU, (or graphics processing unit), is also incredible for machine learning apps and those kind of tasks. It’s 30% faster than the A10 and gives the same performance while using half the power. It’s designed for apps and 3-D games, especially the ones that use the new Metal 2 framework.

Highest quality video capture. Gaming has never been so good – you’re not playing the game – you’re in the game with augmented reality. Go virtually anywhere in the game, hear incredible sound that grows louder the closer you are, and the explosions, are explosive. Follow your character where ever he goes, under bridges and through archways – an Apple gaming first.   Apple games are a treat for your senses.

You can use your iPhone at a game to bring up stats on the players on the field by simply pointing it at the field, or map the night sky in real time, the uses are endless.

And finally with the glass back, iPhone 8 allows wireless charging. The charger is a pad which you lay your iPhone upon to charge. No plugging in. You can charge your iPhone, Apple Watch and EarPods at the same time by simply laying them side by side.

Check them out for yourself at: https://www.apple.com/iphone-8/

It is said “Good thing come in small packages” 

Apple has out done itself stuffing “good things” into the new iPhone X without making it larger. And, wait until you see what is included inside and out.

iPhone X Outside and In

Incredible to look at, even more incredible to hold in the palm of your hand; ten years in the making – the iPhone x.

The iPhone X screen is top to bottom, side to side screen. It goes into each corner where it follows the curve of the design. It has the same space-age strong glass in the front and the back of the iPhone X as the iPhone 8 and 8 plus.

The band is made from the highest grade surgical steel polished to a lustrous sheen. The glass and the surgical steel fit to a continuous surface front and back.  It’s sealed to make it dust and water resistant. It comes in two beautiful color finishes; silver and space gray. Each color has an incredible pearl essence in t6he glass.

The iPhone X boasts an all new display dubbed the super retina. The display is 5.8 inches on the diagonal and it has 2436 by 1125 resolution – over 2.7 million pixels. That equals 458 pixels per inch. This is the highest resolution in an iphone – ever. The first OLED display gives the Super Retina display: great contrast, high resolution, thinness, brightness, wide color support and color accuracy. Super Retina

display supports HDR in Dolby Vision and HDR10, one million-to-one contrast ratio, color accuracy, 3D Touch and True Tone display.

With the edge to edge display, there is no more home button. When you want to go to the home screen, simply swipe up from the bottom. If you are running an app and want to go home – simply swipe up from the bottom. It’s just that easy. Multitasking? Simply swipe up from the bottom and pause, and you are in multitasking.

How do you unlock your phone with iPhoneX? Unlock it with “face ID”. You look at it and it recognizes you. This is made possible by the iPhone X true depth camera system. This is made possible by a state-of-the-art ultrafast neural engine. It’s not sent to a server, it’s done by you. If your eyes are closed or you’re looking away, your iPhone will not unlock.

Fun. This has to do with emojis. You can ‘t customize them, so the Apple team created Animojis for the iPhone X – animated emojis. You control them with your face, any expressions, any movements to make your messages more entertaining. You have to see them to believe it all…

The cameras are amazing – 12MP dual cameras, larger and faster sensors, New color filter, deeper pixels. It has a f/1.8 on the wide angle camera and a f/2.4 aperture on the telephoto. The portrait mode is to die for. You choose how it will be, including the stage lighting effect dropping out the background to black.
