National Dog Day

SG

This Friday, August 26th is National Dog Day; it was founded in 2004 by animal advocate Colleen Paige, to encourage adoption. It is a day to celebrate all breeds and to recognize the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year.

Adopting is one of the most compassionate and rewarding things you will ever do. Your decision to adopt will provide a second chance for a deserving animal. We wanted to celebrate all the fur babies in our office by having them come in for a photo shoot. Visit our Facebook page to view all the fabulous photos: Living In Scarsdale FB.

Here are some great local shelters if you are thinking about rescuing an animal. Most of these shelters run off of donations and volunteers if that is something you are also interested in.

It’s Time To Spruce Up For Spring

spring-cleaning-e1425661781379

By: Avisia Limato

Sunday is the first day of spring. That means an end to these cold, snowy days and time for… spring cleaning. Before we start enjoying all those sunny days and flowers we should make sure our homes are as ready for spring as we are.

Windows

It is time to open the windows to let all that fresh spring air in…and then clean them. To avoid streaks use a lint free cloth or squeegee. You can pick up a window cleaner at the store or make your own solution with just 2 cups of hot water, ¼ cup of white vinegar and ½ teaspoon of dish detergent. Also make sure to wash the window screens, so you have a crystal clear view of the sunny spring days to come.

Dusting

Let’s get rid of all those dust bunnies. The best tool for this job is a microfiber cloth; it will grab the dust and not leave any lint behind. A great addition to a microfiber cloth is a multipurpose spray to get those surfaces gleaming again.

Vacuuming

For all those dust bunnies that might have escaped your microfiber cloth, it’s time to break out the vacuum. Before you get started make sure to check your vacuum bag. Your vacuum can be used for so much more than just your floors. You can use a vacuum to clean your upholstered furniture, draperies, ceiling fans and walls (yes your walls get dusty). So, get that vacuum out with all those crazy looking attachments and get to work.

Floors

Your floors see so much traffic; the winter months are the worst with the snow, sleet and salt. Most homes have more than one type of flooring. For carpets, hit those stains first with a spot cleaner, dab don’t rub. Once the spots are cleaned you can vacuum. You probably sweep and vacuum the wood floors but for spring cleaning take out the mop with some mild detergent mixed with water to get that wood shiny like new. Mopping with a mild detergent and water will also do the trick for tile and vinyl flooring. For grout, using this solution and scrubbing with a non-abrasive cloth will help get them white again.

Kitchen

Your kitchen has seen a lot of cooking and baking over the holidays, show it some love and get it tip top shape. Aside from cleaning the floors, walls and windows you are going to want to give the cabinets, refrigerator and oven a good cleaning. Take time to clean out the cabinets of items you no longer use or want. Then clean the outside of the cabinets; a great solution is water and dish soap. To clean your oven take out all the racks first to scrub in the sink, then create a paste from baking soda and water and coat the inside of the oven. Let sit overnight, and then wipe down the inside of the oven. You can spray some vinegar on the inside to collect any left-over residue from the solution, it will make it foam and then you can easily wipe it all up. For your refrigerator you will want to unplug it first so you can clean under the kick plate and vacuum the refrigerator coils. Clean out all the food so you can give the shelves and drawers a good scrub. Once done put everything back in and turn it on.

Mattress

Get your bed fresh for spring just like the rest of your home. The first step is to wash all your bedding. The easiest way to clean your pillows is to put them in the wash using warm water on a gentle cycle and then tumble dry (do not put foam pillows in the wash). On to the mattress; all you need is a box of baking soda, a great smelling essential oil and your vacuum. Put 20 drops of the essential oil in the baking soda box, close and shake it up. Sprinkle baking soda over the mattress and then rub it into the mattress and let sit for an hour. Then vacuum it all up.

Now you are ready to go chase butterflies and enjoy your spring!

Presidential Properties

The most well-known residence of any President is the White House, but what about where they lived before and after their Presidency. In honor of Presidents’ Day we are taking a look at some of the places they called home sweet home.

George Washington

tn_figure1

 

Mount Vernon was the plantation home of George Washington and his wife Martha. The estate is situated on the backs of the Potomac River in Virginia. In 1758 Washington began the first of many additions and improvements on the home. Most architectural historians believe that the design of Mount Vernon is solely attributed to Washington. The home has been restored to its appearance in 1799, the year Washington died.

 

Abraham Lincoln

The only home that Abraham Lincoln ever owned was purchased by him and his wife Mary Todd in 1844 for $1,200. The home is located at the corner of Eighth and Jackson Streets in Springfield, Illinois. During the time he lived here, Lincoln was elected to the House of Representatives in 1846, and elected President in 1860. The home was donated to the State of Illinois by Lincoln’s son Robert under the condition that it would forever be maintained and open to the public free of charge.

 

 

 

Theodore Roosevelt

Sagamore Hill is located in Oyster Bay, New York on the North Shore of Long Island. In 1884 Theodore Roosevelt hired a New York architectural firm to design a shingle-style, Queen Anne home on the property. The home became the primary residence of Theodore and Edith Roosevelt. It was know as the “Summer White House” during the seven summers Roosevelt spent there as President. It is now the Sagamore Hill National Historic Site, the home and its contents have been preserved and are open to the public by guided tour.

 

 

John F. Kennedy

In 1929 the Kennedy family moved to a local area of ours; Bronxville, New York. John F Kennedy was 12 years old at the time. The estate they purchased was called Crownlands, a Georgian style mansion situated on 5.5 acres at 294 Pondfield Road. At the time this was the largest parcel of land in the village. Crownlands was demolished in 1953 with the acreage being subdivided into the development of Crown Circle.
