70sSo sometimes I worry that I won’t find something to write about for the Wednesday WTF — and then, almost like some really messed up benevolent being out there is invested in this weekly column, someone sends me some house that is a classic example of everything wrong about decorating in the 70s.

Fall 2014

It’s a stunning day in North Texas and we hope you are enjoying a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. Whether you are cooking, with family or friends, dining out, working (my husband is delivering babies!), or enjoying a quiet day of rest and reflection, we want you to know how much we cherish our readers and followers here on CandysDirt and on our sister site, SecondShelters.com. We are grateful for you!

We’ll be on post light for the next few days, unless we find some house porn or celebrity news that is too delicious to resist. So settle back, stay safe, eat a lot and work it off, and enjoy the tremendous beauty and abundance that we are blessed with in Dallas. We are very fortunate indeed, and for this I give thanks every single day! Here’s what 30,000 people looked like at this morning’s Dallas YMCA Turkey Trot… well, at the finish line! (more…)

TurkeysWe are busy with our families and very, very grateful for the wonderful lives we enjoy in beautiful homes because of you!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone from CandysDirt.com, and hoping your day is gobbly-good!
