ALL The Ways You Can Save At The State Fair of Texas, 2018 Edition

LOVE The State Fair of Texas? Well, we do, too, but we don’t love shelling out ALL our pennies to make our fall tradition a reality EACH year.  With general admission tickets for adults at $18 and $14 for kids under 48 inches tall, it starts to add up, especially when you include midway tickets, food and beverages. We have to admit, it is a REALLY great time, and we would like to enjoy ourselves to the hilt, but also come home with some money in our pockets! And this year, we can!! We say thanks to Culture Map Dallas for their “round up” of savings!  Check out all the ways you can save and avoid paying full price, at The State Fair of Texas, 2018.  Then... make sure to have a rip-roaring good time at Fair Park.  Don’t forget to say “howdy y’all,” and get your annual selfie with Big Tex!

Kitchens with Small Footprint Need Love, Too!

I'm kind of crushing on these FAB kitchens.  Elle Decor created a great moment of "pinspiration" for small kitchens.  Most of these inspired spaces are in densely populated urban cities, but I'm a firm believer that great style translates no matter the space!  For more space inspiration, check out THE PRZADA TEAM'S Pinterest boards, and for ALL of your real estate needs, call THE PRZADA TEAM!  We are here for you! 972-839-0671

I LOOOOOOOOVE these island pendant lights.  I can just see them in my own kitchen in a
copper or ORB finish.  I think they are destined for my island.

Well, I think I am in love with this adorable visitor!
Maybe all kitchens should have a window for a furry friend to visit???

Q & A with Donna Malone, professional organizer with Pretty Simple 

Q-What advice would you give someone who wants to make over their Pantry? 

A-What is it about those Pinterest Pantries? One Word....containers!  Picture-perfect Pinterest pantries are notorious for cereals, baking items, snacks, and etc. all in clear matching containers.  Getting rid of all the multicolored mismatched sized boxes not only makes it more aesthetically pleasing to look at, but creates additional space as well.  Clear stacking bins for snacking items, tiered shelving for canned items, Lazy Susans for bottled items all contribute to achieving that "dream pantry".  Wanting to really have fun?  Add peel and stick wallpaper in a bright or bold pattern to the back wall to make you smile every time you open the door.
