1. Black Samick Piano- Looking for around $3,500 or Best offer. It's a great little piano... if you brush the dust off it would be absolutly charming to have in your home. Great black color.

2. Rare Vintage piano- a beautiful, unique brown piano! I bet you won't find anything like it! It's a big piece and is great for conversation, decoration, and making beautiful music! Give a room in your home something to be centered around.

Silence of a Storm

Life is a stressful-pushing-pushing-pushing stream of events. Stress. That's the thing that can motivate us to do more than is even necessary. That can have both positive and negative benefits but sometimes we just need to take a break.
So, I would like to take this opportunity of this snow storm, "Nemo" to unwind. I can hang out with my boyfriend, I can hang out with my dog. I can watch snow flurries go by the window. I can watch a movie or read a book that I usually wouldn't have time to watch. I can not work with confidence that it's OK  because the store is closed anyways.
I want to challenge you all to do the same. Paint your nails, build a snowman, sleep, snuggle with somebody. Drink a glass of wine, or fill that cute mug you got for Christmas with some gourmet hot coco, or tea. mmm. Enjoy your day off-

One must not let oneself be overwhelmed by sadness. - Jackie O. 
Strength is not impossible to find in the face of darkness. The nation has been overwhelmed with senseless killings, but unfortunately this is not a new concept. Sometimes the media makes us feel as though things are changing for the worse, and that things used to be better. Simply put, this is not true- at least on the big scale. Human rights awareness is growing, homicide rates are going down.
However, we still want answers. We want to know why people are being senselessly murdered, and why in such a rich country, are our neighbors losing their homes that they worked so hard to build. WHY? I don't have the answer. There is not one single answer. It's a compilation of problems that may be solved but may not ever be solved. So what do we do? Here's my answer for now, for each individual person. To survive, you must at least find one source of strength.

  • Mental Strength- Push negativity away with positive thought. Google inspirational quotes if you have to. 
  • Mind- Body Strength- Good health, nutrition, working out, learning about yourself through physical limits and pushing yourself.
  • Spiritual Strength- Help others. Look to god, or to the power inside of yourself. Pray. Even if you don't believe in god- pray to your inner self for the strength to push forward. Meditate. Find a passion. Love. 
  • Family and Community- Look to your friends, family and community for support. Support them, bond with them. It's incredible the effects of bonding can have. Meet up with old friends, call your mother, help out at the school.  In other-words, "apprivoiser", (as in Le Petit Prince) : create important bonds with people.

Thank You Very Much!!

With the passing of the holiday season, it's time to acknowledge people for the kind things that they have done for you. The holidays are soo busy and stressful, so you may keep putting thank yous on your to-do list. Don't. Let me reiterate. The holidays are soo busy and stressful AND these people took time out of their busy lives to do something special FOR YOU! So let them know how much you appreciate it! Whether it's a gift or an invitation to Christmas dinner, send a HANDWRITTEN note. Please do not send an email. They didn't just email you a picture of dinner, they spend all day cooking it.
Hand-write your notes
* Organize. Make a list of everybody you need to write, what they did for you, and their addresses. 
* If they gave you a gift, name the gift, and how you have used it or plan to use it. (Emily Post taught me this!! It shows that you care. ( 
* Send your notes within a month of the date you received the kind act, preferably within 2-weeks or sooner.

Spread Your Christmas Magic!!

The holidays are in full bloom, with every department store and mall decked out with lights, trees, faux gift boxes and advertisements on what to buy your loved ones. As much as we love giving special gifts to people that are in our immediate social circle such as friends, and siblings, this can also be a time to give something special to somebody that may not be as fortunate.
Consider Donating or Lending a Hand at/to your local homeless shelters, food pantry's, Salvation armys and more! Our neighbors and friends are what bring us happiness so lets help them out as well!!

Here are some events in Boston for you Massachusetts People:

Stuff A Truck-  This Thursday, November 29th at 11:00 Am at Boston Common and at Legacy Place in Dedham - Trucks will be present to fill with children's toys to give to the children at the Home for Little Wanderers for the holidays! Please bring a toy that could inspire happiness in these precious children and help stuff these trucks!! Want to learn more about the cause? Check out their website

Operation Elf-  Come Donate toys and household items to a great charity at a great event!!

Sunday December 9, 2012

1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Here are some Cape Cod Philanthropy Organizations:

Chatham Angel fund- 
Stop by Ginny’s gallery at 618 Main Street in Chatham and purchase an ornament or a JJ King photograph, and all proceeds are  used to help people in need with shelter, clothing, etc

Harwich Family Pantry- is always looking for donations and volunteers. Do you make pies or have extra canned goods? Send them over! You could help somebody that needs something to eat!

There are many other places that accept food and toys donations such as your local grocery store. Please keep an eye out! We may be "out" of this "recession" but times are still tough for many recovering and still suffering from the economic downfall. Please help out families and children in need this holiday season!
How are you planning to help? Please let me know of any organizations or events to add to this posting!
