Ringing in the New Year!

In 2010, Genevieve and I look forward to making your smaller homes work for you and your families while looking fabulous at the same time! If you have any small home living topics you'd like to hear more about this coming New Year, please let us know! We'd love your suggestions!!

As you toast the New Year, you may keep in mind Genevieve's wonderful post about her friend, The Wine Guy, and his suggestions for some delicious champagnes.

  • Schramsberg Sparkling Wine - A California wine that ranges in price from $20 - $40. Wine Guy tells me that Schramsberg is the sparkling wine Richard Nixon took to Beijing on his historic visit to see Chairman Mao. Nixon gave Mao Schramsberg sparkling wine as a gift in exchange for the pandas which Mao gifted to the United States.
  • Domaine Chandon Sparkling Wine - For a more reasonably priced champagne, the Wine Guy suggests Domaine Chandon sparkling wine from California. He describes this as a tolerable sparkling wine that is greatly improved by the addition of flavored liquors such as, raspberry Chambord. He adds that its perfect for my Genny cocktail.

  1. I'd like to read more about two boys sharing a bedroom, storage ideas, and ideas on how to deal with the fact that virtually everyone you know lives in a bigger house than you do!

  2. Hi ladies :)

    I would love to hear about more storage ideas. It's hard to find a place for everything!

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment. Every time I see your name pop up I clap my hands with joy, because you always have the sweetest things to say.

    I hope both of you have a very prosperous and Happy New Year :)
