Million Dollar Listings: Life Is Good in Montecito

Montecito: you’ve probably already heard of it. Back in the 1800s, the area was an enclave of highway robbers who laid in wait in the nearby canyons, waiting for well-stocked trade caravans to pass through. Later, Italian immigrants established a community in the area, which called to mind the comforts of home. They built farms and planted gardens and vineyards. Touring the area, it’s apparent that the spirit of these Italian pioneers lives on.

When you can afford to live anywhere in the world, Montecito is likely near the top of your list. This exclusive community is home to a who’s who of Hollywood celebs, including Jeff Bridges, Oprah Winfrey, Rob Lowe, and Drew Barrymore, [...]

Grow Your Own Living Herb Wreath

Have you ever tried growing your own herbs before? I have. And I couldn’t believe how easy it was. Here’s what my herb garden looked like on my kitchen counter a year ago.

But I wanted to try something a little different with my herb collection. Something different. Something new.

So I grew my own living herb wreath. Amazing. I know…right? Here it is in all its glory. My very own living herb wreath and it only took me an afternoon. Want to make your own?
