The Stylish Garden Starts with Selecting Succulents
by Cindy Marie Jenkins on Wednesday, April 18th, 2018 at 12:34pm.
When Nook Sales Experts match a buyer with their dream home, the only thing as important as architectural style is the neighborhood. Today we look at the plants who've turned our neighborhoods into sustainable, magical gardens.
It took me a long time to commune with succulents. I'm originally a New England gal, so if you can't drop all your leaves in October and be bursting with green by May, I don't know if I can trust you. Sure, I'd walk my dog past those Dr. Seuss looking gardens and wonder if they were real or plastic. I'd gingerly touch buds to see if they sting like a cactus. In the early 2000s when I moved to California, however, succulents were still an exception to landscaping, not the rule.
Now, succulents have proven they serve our climate well and aren't just a trend. They...

Turn your Home Library as Pristine as your Public Library with These 4 Quick Tips
by Cindy Marie Jenkins on Friday, April 13th, 2018 at 12:39pm.
I moved a lot in my twenties, through New York City and then California. In all those years of finding the perfect place to live, I have just one regret. It was while I rushed through a move out of an apartment in Brooklyn. After a grueling day when I realized just how much I had acquired during college, my Dad and I filled his car with all but three boxes of books.
I stared at those last three boxes, mentally recalling which shelves they'd emptied and thus which books I’d leave behind. My Arden MacBeth (easily replaceable), Othello Varorium (not hard to replace but quite an investment)....I didn’t need any of those right now. I left my landlord a note saying I’d be back for those boxes next week, knowing full well I wouldn’t return, and said, “Let&...
National Library Week Starts off in Style with Our Favorite Library Architecture

I was one of those people who never really fell for the Beast in Disney's Beauty and the Beast, never thought he deserved Belle. Do a few days of awkward flirting to save himself from a curse really warrant forgiving the almost twenty-one years of being a jerk? I thought no.
Then came the library scene. Talk about style! Every bit of my stubborn, fiercely critical teenager just melted when Belle opens her eyes and takes in the huge stacks of books that contain stories she never even knew existed. This was my fairytale ending: just lock me in that library and throw away the key. Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts can bring me food and drink, I’ll put my feet up on that cute little former dog and say goodbye to the world outside leatherbound covers.
No place like that exists in real life, r...
