PRETTY AS A PICTURE!

Come take a look at this lovely Colonial boasting 3 bedrooms and 2½ baths. Relax in the charming living room and cozy up by the fireplace with woodstove insert. The dining room just off the kitchen, features pine wainscoting, built-ins, and a pretty double window allowing lots of natural light to flow through. The kitchen has a breakfast bar for informal dining. You’ll love the convenience of the first floor mud room with laundry facilities. The second floor houses the bedrooms including a master en-suite, an office with warm hardwood floors, and an oversized bonus room above the attached two-car garage for additional living space. The whole house generator takes away the worry about winter power outages. Harvey replacement windows were installed 10 ± years ago and there is a newer furnace. 1.38 beautifully landscaped acres provide a wooded, private, and peaceful setting with a huge, fenced-in back yard. The kids will love the in-ground pool and you’ll enjoy the convenience of the pool house with power.  Close to beaches, shopping & dining.

    Tidying Up

    How Marie Kondo Is Fueling Our Thrifting Goals

    Second Hand Dishes Whether or not you’ve bought into Marie Kondo’s wildly popular method of tidying up, there’s no denying that the current decluttering trend has had a significant impact on one industry in particular—thrift stores are bursting with donations.

    For the uninitiated, Marie Kondo is a Japanese “tidying consultant” who employs a method of purging items from your home that do not “spark joy.” Between her New York Times Best Seller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and her new Netflix series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, her KonMari method is in full effect, and what doesn’t spark joy for others, might spark joy for you. Here are some great items to look out for:

    Books
    Gently-used, vintage children’s books are common in many thrift stores. These and uniquely-colored books can be great to use in decorating.

    For the flippers out there, good-condition, used box sets like the Harry Potter series can sell for around $30 to $50 on eBay. Other popular box sets include The Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, and Little House on the Prairie.

    Wood furniture
    Thrift stores are a great place to score solid wood furnishings at bargain prices. Even if you don't end up finding your vintage dream piece, items that look more “grandma” than Mad Men can be transformed with a little paint, varnish, and fresh fixtures.

    Dishes and Glassware
    Vintage dishes can be particularly valuable, so do a little research when you’re out thrifting. Glassware lovers enjoy vintage Pyrex cookware, as well as glass in different shapes and colors, so keep an eye out for anything out of the ordinary.

    Mirrors
    Mirrors make your space feel bigger, so they are the ultimate accessories for your walls. New mirrors can be expensive, however, so you can save big bucks by finding one at a thrift store.
