Does your entryway say 'welcome home?' These design tips can help create cheerful greetings.
From your driveway to your walkway to your front door, there are several eye-catching ways to welcome guests, family, and, heck, even yourself, in style. I went the Irish route when sprucing up my entryway. If you’ve been to Dublin, you’ve seen the renowned “doors of Dublin,” which pop with pretty and unique colors. I think the Irish would approve of my front door, which is a bright blue, as are my shutters. On a recent trip to Ireland, our guide told us with a wink that legend has it that residents paint their doors a unique color so they can immediately recognize their home when they’ve had one too many pints of Guinness at the local pub. Others told me that actually the Irish tend to paint their doors in pretty colors due to the large …

New or old, glass and its sparkling qualities appeals to many. See some of the best at galleries and festivals around Metro Detroit.
Cleary, glass is beautiful. Stop reading this now and look around. Do you see anything made from glass? Take a second to think of the process of how it was made and the skill behind it, whether it’s an everyday drinking glass or a heavy, richly hued decorative bowl. Simply put, glass is made from a basic mixture of silica, which comes from fine white sand or pulverized sandstone, sodium bicarbonate and lime. See it in all its colorful, reflective, sparkling wonder at the Annual International Glass Invitational Awards Exhibition, now at the Habatat Galleries in Royal Oak. Running through Saturday, the display features more than 90 works of glass from around the world and this year is celebrating its 40th International Invitational. Epiphany…

'Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and vitamin B6,' Beaumont dietitian Silvia Veri said.
You can almost taste the tacos and smell the spicy salsa just thinking about Cinco de Mayo, a day many will celebrate Mexican heritage and culture. But you don’t have to be Mexican to participate in festivities or to enjoy the delicious food. On this day, Americans will use 81 million pounds of avocados in their Cinco de Mayo meals – that is 162 million individual pieces of this delicious green fruit, according to the California Avocado Commission. Guacamole, made predominantly of avocados, is a popular food people eat on this cheerful holiday. “Avocados are a good source of fiber, potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate and vitamin B6,” said Silvia Veri, a registered dietitian and nutrition supervisor at Beaumont’s Weight Control Center …

Lawn experts offer tips for beautiful grounds this season.
We can probably say that it’s safe now to trade snow shovels for garden shovels, snowplows for lawn mowers and mittens for garden gloves. With temperatures climbing into the 60s on a regular basis it’s a downright heat wave — plenty warm to start sprucing up lawns and garden beds. Now is the time to consider everything from mulching grass and checking for disease to inspecting your lawn mower and choosing a date to fertilize. Here, lawn and garden experts offer tips for treating your patch of green well and getting it in tip-top shape: Inspect your lawn mower, said Joe Kosiara, master gardener at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores. “Pull the plug wire, clean under the deck, remove and sharpen the blade, remove and …

Set your Easter, Mother's Day or brunch-with-friends table with a special look that reflects your passions – from elegant crystal to rustic pottery.
Dozens of torn-out magazine pages fill my recipe files, and most don’t have recipes on them. Instead, the worn sheets showcase beautiful images and tips for the second (food is No. 1) most important key to a good meal: dining table ambiance. I recently visited the House of Waterford Crystal in Waterford, Ireland, which charged up my passion for entertaining friends and family and lingering at the table long after dessert is served. Beyond the coffee, after-dinner drinks, chitchat and big laughs that table-lingering offers, it’s just good for the soul to sit back, relax and enjoy a pretty tablescape peppered with everything from elegant crystal to rustic pottery. After watching and listening to the Irish Waterford crystal blowers and …

Mild weather finds us itching to work in our yards – but start with a light touch, the experts advise.
With temperatures climbing into the 60s and 70s these past several days, we’ve enjoyed a downright heat wave — plenty warm to start sprucing up your lawn and gardens. “People are getting anxious,” said Deborah Lee, owner of Shades of Green in Rochester. “We have delivered a load of mulch already — a bit too early for me.” Lee said lightly raking the lawn to remove debris and some dead grass is OK to do now. Added Doug Conley, director of landscaping at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores and resident of St. Clair Shores: “While nice days are here and ‘things’ are popping, soil temperatures are still cool and it is too early to apply most fertilizers and pre-emergent herbicides on lawns.” From Deborah Lee of …
