2012 Marin Designers Showcase

Volunteering isn't something any of us have to do. But it's something all of us should do, to support all the amazing non-profit organizations where we live.

I'm doing my part every weekend by volunteering in the 41st Marin Designers Showcase house every Saturday in February.

It's a rough job I've signed up for.  


The guy on Dirty Jobs wouldn't know what to do.

I get to hang out in a $45 million dollar home in Belvedere, guiding people as they meander around this most amazing home. Every room is stunning. The views take your breathe away.

Oh, and did I mention it's for sale? Yes, it is. The nice folks at Sotheby's would love to talk to you if you're in the market.

I would be happy to be your personal chef or wine caretaker. I don't clean. So don't ask me to do that. You might have to give my parents a "job" too. They're going to want to move in. My dad makes excellent martini's, and my mom is a master snack maker.

Stop by and visit me between 12:30 and 3:30!

All the funds from the tour go to the Center For Volunteer and Nonprofit Leadership.

You can purchase tickets on line, or at the door.

I snuck a few pictures on my iphone. I couldn't resist. The place is so amazing!

The pool and cabana.

Guest suite that I thought Elli would love.

The view. aaaah.....
Wondering how I got involved??

Well, Don and I got to help Kimberly Rider with some of the pieces in the Showcase house from 2010. Our space was the Game Room. Kimberly took this totally ho-hum space and turned it into a room kids and adults would want to hang out in. It was really cool.



I hope to see a bunch of you this weekend!!
