I used to leave my key outside under the flower pot, like many people do. Well let this be a word of caution to you, because my home was broken into that very way. Criminals know to look under the floormat and around the front porch. Fortunately I wasn't home, and only a few things were taken, but he also ran off with the key and I had to get my locks changed by Brads Lock Service.
This was about a year ago but I still remember how afraid I was and kept insisting that the new locks be totally and completely shaped in a different way so the old key couldn't possibly fit. They assured me that everything would be OK and that the old key would never open the new locks. Now I keep the extra key inside and if I get locked out, I will call the locksmith instead of leaving a key outside.
I am very happy with the work that Duran's Flowers did for the funeral of a family member. We wanted flowers to symbolize the great life he had led and told Duran's Flowers exactly how we would like the flowers to be, including a heart display to be placed the front with a picture with the deceased. They gave us a few extra arrangements to place next to that display and were very respectful throughout the whole process.
My favorite thing about this company is that you can see right away what they have available and how it will look - All on the website. They must have figured out that the better the website is, the more business they will get. I was so impressed with the detailed images of their inventory that I decided right then and there to use their rentals for my wedding.
After seeing displays at L.A. County Fair, (I don't know if they had displays here or not) - I did a search for BBQ and grills. When I found Royal Fireplace & Patio, I knew right away this was the place for us. I purchased both a fireplace, and a large BBQ and grill complete with bar and barstools. They did an excellent job with sales and with installation. Highly reccomended to those looking to upgrade your home.
Mothers and More is such a great group! They host playgroups, outings, field trips, and my favorite, Mom's Night Out! There is a special Open House meeting, AND a special tea for new members so they really make you feel welcome. They plan out every 6 months in advance so you know what events are coming and can get ready for them
I attended a relatives party who used The Animal Guys. Since seeing the great job they did, I plan on using them for my son's next birthday in November. They brought ALL kinds of animals like a sloth and a squirrel monkey. The kids LOVED it, laughing and staring wide-eyed at the kinds of animals they had never seen before. The staff was so energetic and seemed as happy with their job as the kids were with the party!
We also did a very girly princess party for my daughter's 4th birthday party. I had heard about the Balloon Emporium
from a friend and decided to see what they were all about. When I heard they will do the set-up, I was hooked! I usually have to get up 2 hours early to go to the park and set things up, so it was great to have someone else take over. The balloons were wonderful and the party looked truely magical.
I love Creative Expressions. I attended a baby shower here about a month ago, and it was such a wonderful idea! Everyone made 2 pages that went into a scrapbook for the baby. I told my friends to throw me a shower like that one when I have a baby! It was such a unique shower and we had alot of fun talking and making scrapbook pages for the new baby.
Their prices really are the best - and so is their service and computer knowledge. Many times when I am having a problem I just call them and they can help me over the phone. If not, they fix my computer in person and get it running smoothly again. They always know exactly what I'm talking about even if I can't do a good job explaining exactly what the problem is. Quick N Easy PC Repair really is quick and easy - as well as cheap!
Pasadena Rug Mart is a such a great place. Not only can you buy your rugs here, but you can also get them repaired and even cleaned here - the old-fashioned way BY HAND. It gets the dirt and dust out better than any machine or broom. They have mostly antique rugs but also newer rugs - I love the Oriental rugs and the European rugs and have bought 3 since discovering this place about a year ago.
