Some Washington state parks reopened today for day-use recreation. Now we just need Oregon's Governor to re-open our parks. Oregon is one of the best states for outdoor adventure and revitalizing nature soaks!

Sculptor and owner of design & build firm Fire Features Elena Colombo is giving traditional home fireplaces across the U.S. and Canada a long overdue makeover. The designer, best known for her environmental sculptures and outdoor fire, wind and water features, is increasingly being invited indoors and asked to put her artistic twist on fireplaces in homes, cabins and chalets.⠀

Since 2004, Elena has been producing customized fire features, not only for private residences, but for hotels, resorts, vineyards and museums. You can view some of Elena’s gorgeous indoor and outdoor fire feature designs at: https://www.firefeatures.com/work/.

This is the 8th annual Pints for Polio–a Bend Pub Walk. Over the last eight years, they have raised over $70,000 to eradicate Polio – and that has been matched two to one by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for over $210,000.

New Year. New Rates.

Mortgage rates opened the new year by moving slightly lower.⠀

According to the latest data released Thursday by Freddie Mac, the 30-year fixed-rate average slipped to 3.72 percent.⠀

“The combination of improved economic data and market sentiment has led to stability in mortgage rates, which have hovered around 3.7 percent for nearly the last two months,” Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist, said in a statement. The low mortgage rate environment combined with the red-hot labor market is setting the stage for a continued rise in home sales and home prices.”⠀

You have to be very careful when you come to Oregon...people come to Oregon and they don't leave. It starts as a visit, and turns into home. www.michellejohnsonhomes.com

According to a recent article published in the LA Times, California's population growth is the slowest since 1900 as residents leave, and immigration decelerates. ⠀

The most common destinations for those leaving the state were Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Texas and Washington. Aside from a lower cost of living, some Californians are drawn to areas with no state income tax.

Design Love ♥️

Everyone knows kitchens and bathrooms sell a house. Consider adding a rustic mountain-style vibe to your master bath as seen in this photo from @lmkinteriordesign. When implementing a rustic design, think stone surfaces, weathered woods, patinas, and spaces that evoke a warm feeling of comfort, and relaxation.

Hello! I'm a local artist working on miniatures made mostly from found or repurposed objects. Currently I'm working on a series of room dioramas representing rooms of a fictional ancestral home I call Forester Hall. I made the full house replica in miniature mostly out of clay and cardboard. If you would be interested in seeing my creations I would love to share some images with you...or you can see lots of photos on my Instagram at foresterhallhistory. I am only an amature miniaturist and am not selling my work...if that matters. Thank you. I look forward to hear from you. *in case you run a story on local artsy types.... ;) Edward Croft
