You still have time to enter to win the Blue Hill Inn. Entry fee is $150 and 200 word essay must be yours and yours alone. Check out details on this opportunity to be the new owner of this historic B & B: http://winthebluehillinn.com
I have personally seen this inn and can attest to the feng shui being lovely and positive. Downeast Maine without the kitsch– upscale, charming, and a great place to stay. Why not test your luck?
this is the legend of the fishgirl and the bear……enjoy!
Beds placed in front of windows tend to be design and feng shui no-no’s. Except when they are as cleverly done and as thoughtfully balanced as this one is. The key is to incorporate proper window dressing as well. Check out about a dozen more excellent examples of how to solve this design dilemma with good feng shui at ElementsofStyleBlog.
The Feng Shui By Fishgirl Blog received such a strong reaction to the Hobbit House post that I decided to look for more Hobbit Houses. Came across this fab story about the abandoned Lord of the Rings set in New Zealand. Click here to go to the original blog post at WebEcoist to see 15 Hobbit Houses.
I read an interesting feng shui article recently entitled “Could your canopy bed be causing your depression?” Please go read the article and then come back to see my take on it here. (The blog where I found the article didn’t allow for comments otherwise I would have put my opinion there with the page I found it on). Here is the photo of the bed in question.
I’m happy to hear that the owner of the bed was relieved of her depression and headaches when she removed the canopy. Just looking at this one gives me a headache. For me, the reason is the gauzy shroud-like fabric. Symbolic of a death shroud (white color in Chinese tradition is the color one wears to funerals), also the weight of the fabric is transparent–ghostly– and draped down low over the bed itself instead of pulled taut like a ceiling would be. It’s all wrong for the substantial bed furniture that it is draped to. I’m betting that a canopy done properly in the right fabric would not have had the same ill effects on the owner of this bedroom. Another reason for depression when none can be found is to do some detective work on who lived in the home before you. Perhaps someone with drug problems, divorce, depression, or even someone who lingered and died here or killed themselves here. This is something that could cause problems for the new tenant.
A wonderful image of nature and design that makes me want to curl up with the NYT, a glass of wine, and somebody I love. Check out the eye candy at Hovercraftdoggy.com design blog.

Have you ever experienced a ghostly presence in real life or in dream time? It could take the form of hearing a voice like this story from Trainee Golem Builder Blog (where I borrowed this great ghost picture from). Or it could be that you are having a problem with shattering glasses and things breaking frequently in your home space. Some people I’ve spoken to who live in centuries-old homes like their ghosts and feel that they add friendly energy to their lives. As a feng shui practitioner I have witnessed many paranormal entities. I always recommend removing ch’i energy that doesn’t belong to you. Get rid of residual energy by doing a thorough smudge / incense/ space clearing. You’ll feel more energized and lighter once you’ve banished the otherworldly energy.
