Turning Inward

This is the time of year that I find that I am looking to re-decorate, cook, snuggle on the couch with my newly learned knitting hobby and sipping a glass of a hearty red wine. 

I'm thinking about warm foods, looking at new receipies and planning  the upcoming holidays.  At this stage it feels nice to put on a warm sweater....and to wear your favorite comfy boots again.  I still get excited over the first snow fall to add to the ambiance.

I love to add layers to a bed, with various colors and materials...a down comforter in a duvet cover is a must.

 I try to keep some of my herbs alive through out the winter that I've brought into the house.

I have found some great recipes on Food 52

Will keep posting!

Who What Where When

Knowing that the success of Harmonizing Homes is dependent on myself is beyond scary at times however I wouldn't change it at all!

I have been asked what did you want to be when you were a child?  I wanted to be an artist, I loved color, design.  I studied graphic design when I was in High School, I elected to go off campus to do so. 

Best Business Advise -  You can't do everything on your own .  Look for experts when you need to and hire professionals for the things that you acknowledge that you are not good at.

What is the Biggest Risk?  Everyday is uncertain and is an adventure.  If I don't get up and get moving get my self out there the business would not be...Every day is different!

Biggest Lesson learned?  That it doesn't just take creativity to be successful in business, I have to deal with the daily nuts and bolts such as policies and procedures, contracts. It is something that I have battled from the beginning with some expensive lessons learned.

My Proudest Trades?   Resiliency.....recreating my self!

Where do I get inspiration?  Travel is the best way....remove your self from your daily environment even if its is a trip into NYC....but my favorite place for inspiration is Vermont.
