Go for the GOLD

Congratulations to teen snowboarder Chloe Kim – who delivered on the biggest stage, earning her first Olympic gold medal in women’s snowboard halfpipe on Tuesday morning in South Korea. She become the youngest woman in history to win an Olympic gold medal on snow for Team USA.

The 17-year-old from California dominated the field of a dozen riders. She posted a score of 93.75 during the first of her three runs in the finals and a 98.25 in the last run.

You too can bring home the gold – from Grecian gold leaf bands, to antique gold rustic frames, to warm oxidized gold finishes, the inviting jewel toned metal accents would elevate any space.

Be Subtle

Call House*Tweaking blogger, Dana, a party-pooper or Scrooge.  But she, like many, really does not like blatant holiday decor. That being said, she has 2 kids that she did not want to deprive of holiday fun. So they worked together on “spookifying” their living room…for FREE in a very clever way that satisfied everyone involved.


The spooky Halloween decorations are hiding in the lamp shade! By day, it’s a beautifully unassuming lamp. At night, when the lamp is switched on, it’s a Halloween themed shadow box!

Painting is a tedious job.The time that it takes to prep and paint walls and do the lengthy cleanup involved makes me cringe.
