With an autumn scented candle wafting through your home, you can tackle anything, including preparing your home for the fall season. Here are some tips to create the coziest atmosphere for your home this fall.
May 25, 2017 officially marked the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars, but the birthday celebration continues as we head toward the December release of Rian Johnson's new film, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. With all the great products out there that pay tribute to a galaxy far, far away, some of the coolest aren't toys or apparel, but wall art for your home or office. The folks at EntertainArt have been making pop culture decor for ages, and Star Wars has been a big part of that for awhile. When they asked me to take a look at their special collection of Star Wars 40th Anniversary prints, one in particular immediately grabbed me and I knew I had to have it... "Darth Vader Lives." It's an exclusive design that you won't find anywhere else, digitally-printed in a 16"x20" recessed box. So why did this particular design grab me? Because I had it once before... in fact, I wore it.
Updated to "Do Not Buy" Status: Our projector has malfunctioned after just three weeks of normal use. While we are awaiting a resolution (if any), in the interest of sharing my true experience, I feel it necessary to update this review. First the motion function failed, and three days later the projector was completely dead. As of this writing (12/11/2016), the projectors had been marked-down on the Deck the Home site from $129 to $79, and as low as $59 on Amazon. We are not alone, as "1-Star Reviews" are stacking up on Amazon.
Every few years there's a "revolution," or more accurately - a super-hot trend when it comes to holiday lighting that everyone wants to get in on. Back in the late 90s, I was working "Big Box" retail when icicle lights first came out, and I remember the frenzy those first two years in which everyone just had to be like the neighbors. Right now the trend is laser light shows, and this is one I've been waiting for the right chance to get on-board with - an easy way to cover a lot of area at once, while finally reaching those high-up spots that I'm too cautious to mess with (pre-kids, I would've climbed all over the place). So while the neighbors may all have starfields of red and green, the folks at Deck the Home have upped the game, presenting the first-ever licensed Laser Light Projector, and they couldn't have picked a more perfect property to do: A CHRISTMAS STORY.
