Ellie’s friends always enjoy a good laugh when talking about her tendency to go into show homes & tweak the placement of furniture & accessories or rearrange retail store displays to be more eye-catching. It’s always fun to know about her latest tweaking gig. It’s fair to say that Ellie was born with an eye for color & another one for design.
