With sales promos clogging up my inbox and Christmas carols blasting in every store, that can only mean one thing. Well, OK, maybe more than one thing.

It’s beginning to look a lot like… Autumn, my favorite time of year. I can finally justify my daily cardigans and jeans because at a crisp 74° degrees, why wear anything else? We’ve managed to sample every pumpkin spice themed coffee in the office’s vicinity and confession: I’ve splurged on a pumpkin-themed set of candles that will (hopefully) last the season.

In yesterday’s post, we revealed the Grand Prize winner of our Photo Contest, and today, we present more incredible photos that were shared by our customers. Rebecca Groulx, from Minnetonka, Minnesota, was our second place winner as we fell in love with the look of her new garage.

We’ve had some wonderful entries submitted for our Illuminating Spaces photo contest but we’re extending the deadline just in case you were too busy traveling, shopping, or just lying on the beach to get your entry posted.Read More
There are so many good reasons to live by the ocean, you hate to even consider that there may be a downside. But one reality of living near the sea is the persistent salt air. Even before you can see the water, you can smell that delightful tang on the breeze. Yet salt air can also wreak havoc on exterior furnishings and fixtures. Eric lives in Gleneden Beach, Oregon, and recently had to replace an old nautical bulkhead light on his garage that had seen better days.Read More
