Anyone that has been by Homeland Realty Group's office has met Bella. My Chocolate Lab. My spoiled Chocolate Lab. From her morning treat of Bojangles fries to her mid-day Oreo snack, the girl is rotten. Judge me. I don't care. :o) I could not image her being out in this cold for any extended period of time. Which prompted me to share this reminder about all our beloved fur-babies over the next few days:
The first rule of thumb, if it is to cold for you it is to cold for them, period. Bring them in. Ok, I know, sometimes they just can't stay inside.... your house, that is. For the love, please make sure they have shelter. Warm, dry, draft-free shelters, raised off the ground to prevent moisture runoff and dampness getting inside, that is large enough to allow them to move comfortably, but small enough to hold in body heat; the doorway should be covered with waterproof burlap or heavy plastic and the floor covered with cedar shavings or straw.
Some people genuinely don’t know the risk that cold weather poses to their pets or livestock. Enlighten them. If they respond poorly or continue to neglect their animals, report them. Did you know animal neglect is considered a misdemeanor crime in all 50 states and Washington, D.C?
For more information on how to protect not only your cats and dogs but other animals, I encourage you to visit

Looking for a little pick-me-up for a dull room? Try an Accent Wall!
An accent wall can totally transform a room, taking it from boring and drab to bold and exciting. Accent walls create a new focal point for your space, add liveliness and contrast, and are typically a very inexpensive DIY project.
The starter accent wall
You can easily add an accent wall to your room in one afternoon by applying a new paint color. Deep blues and bright oranges are common choices for accent walls, but choose a color that will complement your existing decor and overall design aesthetic.
Bright, contrasting paint is a good starting point, but there are other options for accent walls that are even more eye-catching and distinct. Floor-to-ceiling wood planks can make your home seem both rustic and modern all at once and provide a natural, outdoors-inspired feel. It’s more work than simply painting a wall, but it’s still relatively inexpensive. You can source the wood from pallets on Craigslist and stain it yourself before attaching it to your wall. It takes a little extra elbow grease, but it’s worth the effort.
Patterns, murals, and more
Paint and wood are bold enough on their own to transform a room, but they’re still pretty subtle compared to other accent wall options. A chalk paint accent wall is a creative idea for any room and makes for some fun moments when you’re entertaining. There are also endless options for wallpaper and stenciling if you want some patterns or you can get really bold with a mural or oversized art print. Look at the brick wall in the picture and the contrast it brings to the room. It is actually a faux brick wall- wallpaper to be exact!
Kidding. Y’all know us better than to talk like that. But for real. How often have we heard ....
Stop. Right. There.
