“Autumn… the year’s last, loveliest smile.”

–William Cullen Bryant

As we ease into autumn winds down, it’s time to make sure your home in the San Joaquin Valley is ready for what comes next. Here are a few ideas to make the transition from summer to fall and winter smooth and easy.

Inside your home…

BRING NATURE IN

Yes, the summer flowers have faded. But it’s good to remember that autumn has a lot to offer your décor, including gourds in every shape and size, corn husks and acorns. Fill a wooden bowl or willow basket with nuts or pine cones. Or make a chili pepper garland to drape over the mantle.

Checking your credit report can also reveal mistakes. Correcting them will improve your credit score. But start now as it can take several months to fix inaccuracies. Read the rest of this entry »
