We've all have had holidays like these: The dog eats the turkey drippings before you can make the gravy; your husband cuts his hand with a knife while chopping onions and has to go to the emergency room just before the big meal; you ordered the entire holiday dinner from a fancy store and the turkey was so salty, it was inedible — and that’s just me. In situations like these, there are only two things to do: laugh and share the story with us.
Let’s be very clear about one thing: All of these photos show examples of people who did itright. That’s not what we are after.
What we are looking for are your tales of when it went wrong. The creator of this lovely table used acorns (a free and abundant fall material) to great effect. To pull another nonwin from the annals of Bowling history, I tried something similar, but I decided to use wax to reattach the acorn caps to the acorns. It’s a thankless and tiring task. The guests came early, and still I wasn’t finished. My sisters-in-law ended up helping recap the acorns, and then suggested we go out for the next Thanksgiving meal.
This pretty fall table has tall metal branches in the middle. It looks and works great because 1. it echoes the bare-limbed trees you find in nature at this time of year and 2. you can see through it. When I was younger, I tried to do something similar, but I ended up making the classic rookie mistake of creating a gorgeous arrangement that was so tall, my guests were peering uncomfortably over it during the entire meal. Talking to the person across from me was like trying to communicate over a hedge.

"Your most memorable moment
I have to say that Michaela is the most efficient, enjoyable and effective real estate agent we've ever used and we bought and sold many houses. Since we bought our house sight unseen, Michaela went above and beyond the call of duty to keep us informed, FaceTime and text photos, checked the houses thoroughly and everyone she recommended along the way were also excellent.
The moment you'd rather forget?
I can honestly say that Michaela surprised us every step of the way by lining up the process flawlessly, there was never a negative moment with her.
Michaela Sanchez is above and beyond any agent we have ever worked with, and we bought and sold many houses. She took care of every detail along the long and drawn out process of finding, inspecting and financing our home flawlessly and timely. Since we bought our home from California, Michaela earned our trust and our hearts staying ahead of the process as well as keeping us in the loop by taking many photos and videos and texting them to us; it was such a help for us to stay involved in the buying, inspection, financing and closing process. We highly recommend Michaela, you will be amazed at her efficiency and kindness.
Not yet, but will recommend if any is buying in the Sarasota area for sure.
