Spring Chickens Little Dickens Petunias Harry Potter

                 Springing in the breeze 
                       among the Birds and Bees
                           a Garden Affair going on...
Who's eating my flowers?  It's not the Spring Chickens so it must be the 
Little Dickens that have made their home in the trees.  They seem to like the Petunias,
they ate the entire plant and now they're snacking on Hibiscus that's looking a bit scant. 
Little mighty mice, a rat pack all their own continue to feast, on anything they can put between
 their tiny little teeth! So what does one do to discourage their chew?

   Plant more flowers and watch what they do!
  Minimize damage to plants by offering an alternative snack to those hungry guests, otherwise known as garden pests. Did you know grocery stores actually sell Mice Food that gives them   something other than your flowers to chomp on and keeps the little dickens busy for a while?
 Sprinkling hot pepper flakes or mothballs around their hangouts is said to discourage them.

                                   
                                         

                                                 

    They mock the Squirrels I kid you not and drink from the birdbath jumping
out of a tree top. Posed around the giant bowl of water it's as though they're planning a
scene from the next Harry Potter! They like to nibble and occasionally nosh, on Carrots,
Geraniums and Yellow Squash. Meandering from tree trunks to grassy fields they march to 
the beat of their own little drum ever forridging for a seed or crumb.

Artscana Golden Portfolios


                       It all begins with an Inspiration
                     Something, Someone, Somewhere

                       

         Sometimes you might not even know it's there...

  
                   
                
The beauty of fresh flowers with sunbeams dancing across
their fluorescent like petals on a summer morning 

as you approach the breakfast nook with a cup of Coffee of choice
and maybe a Zucchini Nut Muffin, you glance across the table 
seeking what it was that drew you to it in the first place.
 The colors and softness of the flowers,
the way the light reflected on them and the things around them
that somehow become a part of them. 
A scenario intriguing your senses 
inspiring you to "Preserve the Moment" 

 
Every Picture tells a story and Creates a story for
a  Nook in the Home, Office Space or Niche` in the Marketplace

 
Picture Hanging how to video


A Golden Portfolio is every Artisan's Dream

              by Artscana 
                    
          You've just become a Homeowner or decided to
  Lease that perfect place to hang your hat, but it needs
  a little T A H D A to make it Yours...

         Revelations come in all Shapes & Sizes, be it a Timeless
    Statement Piece or an Inspirational work of Art that somehow in someway speaks to
    your emotions and intellect.  

             Designs that create a "Room with a View" Interior
    What exactly does that mean? Simply that it attracts the eye and directs the Focus
      toward a unique piece giving the room a Focal Point. Rather than stand inside the space
      looking outward it compels your mind's eye to explore the beauty within.


                      Take a little time to stop and smell the Roses

                 Great tips from HGTV's  Dear Genevieve for creating an Awesome Space...

                   

                                       

      Your Space is what you make it whether you choose to hire a Pro,
DIY (do it yourself) or combine efforts.  Working with a Designer has many benefits that
offer an end result so gratifying that you possibly couldn't have imagined it without their
help. Design Teams are essential when you decide on a Renovation Project that involves
major or minor construction. Patience goes a long way throughout the process but the
big finish is well worth it!

  Outdoor Living Areas have become ever popular especially in
 climates that are Year round Outdoor friendly. Designer Jamie Durie creates another
 Magical Oasis for his Clients and on HGTV utilizing the best that Nature has to offer
 combined with Design Elements.
