  1. Hi Candace:
    Nice blog and what a great niche! I am an interior redesigner and am currently working on a downsizing project. My own ‘niche’ as a redesigner lends itself well to working with downsizers as they ponder what to keep and what to say goodbye to for newer things or just less. If any of your clients are in need of assistance I would be happy to help. If you would like a list of references, I would be happy provide that for you. Thank you, Lisa Galligan 503-307-5103

    Hello Candace , nice site , relevant , refreshing .
    It appealed to me as , living in Australia it is getting very worrying , the big developers foisting bigger and bigger homes on young buyers who have no direction on where they should be looking . I had difficulty getting a quality builder to build our smaller house as small seems to equate to cheap .

    Hi Roddy,
    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. We have similar concerns over here but thankfully many young buyers here in Portland are very progressive and want to live smart and make minimal impact on the environment. It’s so great to see! Glad to hear you built smart and enjoy your smaller home!
    Thanks again, hope to see you popping in from time to time. Have a fantastic weekend.

    Hello Candace!

    I discovered your blog through the email that you sent promoting sale of Poinsettias this weekend at Lake Twin Theater in Lake Oswego to benefit the Windermere Foundation. I likely won’t make it to the Theater for the poinsettias this weekend but I do love your blog! As you know, I am passionate about conserving the great Pacific Northwest. Increasingly I believe that the best thing we can do to conserve our great forests, farms and rivers is to keep city living enthralling and exciting. Living compactly in thriving cities is essential to keep from sprawling out across our landscapes. National Geographic’s latest issue has an article about this very thing – you can read it at this link.


    I am not sure that I agree with everything in the article, but the issue must be brought forth. Your blog helps with this. I look forward to learning more!

    My best

    Thanks for the heads up! If we have green space to play and relax in than we do not need the big backyards.
