For all of you folks that are on the fence about Brunswick County, check out this video. Not for the sappy romantic stuff, but for the beautiful location, our beloved Southport. Just a few miles down the road.
I love this woman and I love this video.
An 84 square foot house? Yeah, right. Well…….yeah, right. This Olympia, WA woman built an 84 square foot house on wheels and has been living there for over 2 years.

Brunswick County, NC is a unique place. In addition to over 40 miles of beautiful beach scattered out over 5 islands, there is also over 55 miles of the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW), numerous tidal rivers and creeks and over 30 golf courses. It’s no wonder why families choose this county for their annual pilgrimage. There is something for everyone. OmniStorage has published a blog post on these 5 beautiful islands.
Kristie Barnett has published an excellent article called 6 Tips for Staging Historic Homes. 6 tips don’t seem like much, but read the article. In addition to excellent advice and beautiful pictures, there is a comment section where readers have posted their ideas on the subject.
Apartment Therapy starts out with a clean slate in their article “How to Make it Yours: the first things to do in a new home”.

One woman recommended bringing your favorite candle to create an atmosphere that reminds her of “home”. Enjoy.
