Sweet Beams

Designed to inspire everyone who lives under a new roof, this is the perfect gift book for someone moving into their first rental apartment or final retirement home. (It pairs nicely with a housewarming plant or a bottle of wine!)
Sweet Beams was written to celebrate the place we call home, with bits of inspiration, such as: "The most essential piece of garden equipment is a hammock" or “Put the ‘living’ back in your living room. Try Dancing.”
But it also includes practical tips for new homeowners or renters:
"Personalizing your porch or entry with a wreath, mailbox or planter has been proven to be an effective home security system. There are fewer break-ins."
In 10 short chapters, this book reminds everyone how lucky we are to live under a roof.
