Coastal Blueprint Posters

These coastal blueprint posters measure 12″ x 12″ and depict both nautical animals and structures.

The first shows a lighthouse, sailboat, and anchor, and the second an octopus, seahorse, and crab.

True, they’re more map-like than blueprint-like, but, either way, if I had a beach house, this art would be on the walls.

Tips for Buying a Vacation Home

Tips for Buying a Vacation or Second Home

Investing in a second home is a great way to vacation.  Whether it’s a beachfront condo or a Disney-adjacent single family home, there are so many wonderful ways to make lasting memories with your family.

But, before you jump in, review these 6 tips:

1. Keep costs within the budget.  Unless you’re paying cash, make sure you get prequalified for a loan before you start looking.  And don’t overspend:  you’ll need cash for ice cream.

2. Determine the frequency of use.  If you’re going to be spending a week or a month at a time at your vacation home, then you may not mind spending half the day in the car (or in airports) to get to your destination, but if it’s a weekend home, you’ll probably want it a little closer. 

3. Pick the right location.  Pick an area that offers what you want.  If you’re not a beach person, maybe homes with the Gulf of Mexico in the backyard isn’t where you should be looking. 

4. Understand upkeep.  If you don’t want to hire a lawn service to mow a large yard, you may want to consider a maintenance-free condo or town home. 

5. Research rental potential and costs.  If you intend to rent out the property, be sure to research things like renter’s insurance and what properties in the area are renting for. 

6. Think about resale and changing needs.  Don’t forget to factor resale value into your decision.

These tips are summarized from Barbara Ballinger.  Read more at Realtor Mag.

Blueprint Paperweight for Architects

Blueprint Paperweight for Architects and Builders

Blueprints make me happy.

Hard to say why, exactly, but they do.

I’ve been studying floor plans since I was a kid.  Drew them myself on the computer all through my formative years.  Even attempted a semester at the UF School of Architecture.

And, while architecture might not have been in the stars for me when it came to a career choice, I still love it.

So for people like me, this paperweight is the perfect office accessory:  a big ball of smiles.

You can find the Crumpled Blueprint Paperweight on Amazon.

LEGO Simpsons House

LEGO Simpsons House

I’m a little obsessed with LEGO blocks, so when I came across this Simpsons set, I was pretty excited.

It’s SO detailed, which is great for both Simpsons fans and anyone who loves dollhouse-type miniatures.

LEGO Simpsons House

It hinges open to reveal the interior, and you can take remove the roof for easier access to the top floor while it’s closed.

LEGO Simpsons House

It comes with 6 figures and a ton of fun LEGO accessories, like Bart’s room with his skateboard and Krusty the Clown poster, Lisa’s room with her favorite books and jazz poster, and the living room with iconic couch, TV playing Itchy and Scratchy, purple piano and so much more.
