Paint A Door Using Porch Floor Enamel

I love the idea of painting a front door a vibrant color. I knew I had to share this helpful post from Stylist.com about the best paint to use for lasting beauty. Enjoy

 Porch & Floor Enamel:
  • Dries to a hard, colorfast, moisture- and mildew-resistant surface
  • No primer coat needed
  • Very glossy finish
or Try Oil-based Enamel:
  • Same benefits of porch and floor enamel
  • Comes in eggshell finishes
  • A slightly longer drying time.

Christmas Lights Recycling & Energy Saving Holiday Lights

'Tis the time to be green so I wanted to pass the word along...

Christmas Light Trade-in
Bring in your old, broken or used incandescent holiday light strings to your local The Home Depot store for recycling. Get a discount for each recycled string on a single receipt, in-store purchase of LED lights. Limit 5 discounts per customer.

LED Holiday string lights:
  • Use 80% less energy than traditional incandescent holiday lights
  • ENERGY STAR qualified
  • Can last up to 10 times longer than traditional incandescent lights
  • Cool to the touch, reducing the risk of fire
  • Do not have moving parts, filaments or glass, so they are much more durable and shock-resistant than other lights
  • The amount of electricity consumed by just one 7-watt incandescent bulb could power 140 LEDs- enough to light two 24 foot strings
With those benefits we make it easy to Save Green Live Green.  Also don’t forget that November 15 is “America Recycles Day” so make sure to get out and participate. Take care and Happy Holidays.

Get your glow on with these eco-minded LED, solar, and rechargeable lights. Sunset.com

Saturday Drive: Coronado, Gaslamp, Pioneer Park, Pringle Street (Photos)

Here's a bunch of fotos I snapped today. After the rain it was nice to get out and experience a crisp fall day.

I made the mistake of driving into Mission Valley, inspired to breeze through Ikea, not realizing a huge event was underway. So plan B, we headed out to Coronado and Gaslamp for a drive.

Had to pull over and chow on some tasty tacos at Las Quatro Milpas before heading to Coronado. Did you know they are on Facebook? I reviewd LQM on Yelp too, be sure to read the post with all the links here.

We ended the day of errands by walking the dogs through Pioneer Park to Pringle Street. Also one of my favorite modern homes is listed below. From time to time I come across homes I have admired my whole life living here in Mission Hills, this house is one of them. Love the views from that area in back of the park. There was a wedding and I couldn't resist sharing a snaps or two, so cute! Forgot my camera again so forgive my Blackberry quality. Enjoy
