dan tabit: Time to Sell in Sammamish or on the Eastside? - 05/17/12 12:52 AM
Time to sell in Sammamish or on the Eastside?  It could be.  Existing home inventories are very low with well priced, well presented homes selling in days now instead of months.  Rates remain at all time lows which allow a buyer to raise their affordable price range.  On top of this, we just got news that local employers Microsoft and Amazon are hiring!    King 5 reports that Microsoft will be adding 1500 new jobs in our area and Amazon will be adding another 1000. 
 
With this influx of buyers your home may be worth more than it has been … (0 comments)

Wordless Wednesday, Packing to Move, Don't Hire These Packers.
 
Alpacas are primarily bread for wool, while their cousins the Llama are used as pack animals.  These guys probably have done very little hauling in their life.  I took their picture outside of La Conner WA recently while visiting the Tulip Festival.

Cherry Blossom Lane, Hampton Woods, Sammamish
 
Not really called Cherry Blossom Lane, this is NE 20th St in the Hampton Woods Neighborhood in Sammamish.  It just seemed like all the trees were in bloom today.  White and pink blossoms set against the dark green fir trees and the blue sky just looked like it should be renamed, at least for a few days. 
Hampton Woods is just outside Sahalee, near Heritage Hills.

Silent Sunday, Is This a Hobbit House?
 
While visiting the Tulip Fields in La Conner WA recently we saw this garden shed and thought it looked interesting.  Do you think it looks like a Hobbit House?  Can you imagine Bilbo or Frodo Baggins coming out for a walk in the gardens?
