**Update: Congrats to the winner Jessica!**While we've had a really nice winter so far this year, this past week of warm temperatures really has me thinking of spring! We walked the dog like crazy and even made ribs in honor of the 60+ temps.
The Show returns to Cleveland’s I-X Center February 3rd-12th with lots of ideas to renew, restore and refresh any home. With more than 600 exhibits, hundreds of home industry experts, appearances by home and garden celebrities, and your returning favorites from the 2016 show, there is something for everyone at this year’s show.
