When it comes to decorating with attention to beautiful detail, no one beats our friend and gracious hostess, Lisa Tice. We asked her to share a few of her secrets and just one of the tablescapes floating around in that fabulous head. 1. Start in the yard! I plant flowers that I know will look good with my decor and china patterns. That way I always have something to use. 2. Decide on flower colors to be used first, then build around it.
Driving up to Shari and Keith Grace’s mountaintop home is an inspirational experience all its own. Winding paths, huge trees and one interesting home after another. Of course, as you will soon see, that is only the beginning of the experience this home will afford us, and the couple who lives there is the icing on the cake.
Lindsay and Chris Jackman are very upfront about the circumstances that led to their love for renovation. It’s the perfect story of family, faith, and how sometimes the hardest times can come with the happiest endings. “Chris and I met in college,” says Lindsay. “We left there with a huge amount of student loan debt-- I honestly wasn’t sure how we would ever get out of it. We found a house in terrible shape and in foreclosure after we married and worked together to make it our home.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
