Exterior Reveal

I finally got all my ducks in a row and can share our exterior reveal with you. By "all my ducks in a row" I mean I found the file where I put all the pictures of the exterior repairs we made on our house. When we bought our house, we knew we would have to make major repairs down the road. The roof was at the end of its second layer so that would be a ...continue reading

Target Basket Planter Makeover

I usually hang a basket on our front door instead of a wreath.  The basket always seemed too small but I liked it so it stayed. This Spring I found another supersized willow basket so I brought it home and I nailed the size! I know I am tooting my own horn but I kinda don't care because I nailed it. After seven plus years of living here I finally nailed the ...continue reading

First Birthday Garden Party

A few weeks ago, my sweet twin nieces turned one. My sister planned a garden party for the girls' first birthday. I can't think of a better theme to celebrate their milestone year. It has truly been a blessing to watch my nieces grow and see their personalities bloom. I was so excited when she let me do the centerpieces and decorate for the party. Oh, and ...continue reading

Garage Sale Finds- June

If you like garage sales, then you know there is nothing better than a townwide garage sale. Nothing except three townwide garage sales in two weeks and I was able to go to all three! I was pretty happy with my purchases. I cleaned them up a bit and took a few pictures to show what I got. I was mainly on the lookout for anything I could use as outdoor ...continue reading

Repurposed Egg Basket planter

Sometimes I am an "over-thinker". Like right now as I wrote that sentence I spent a lot of time trying to decide if overthinker is a real word and trying to avoid the little red squiggle telling me I spelled it wrong. To me it is one word- my word that pops into my head when I find myself spending a lot of time trying to figure things out. I put it in quotes ...continue reading

DIY Vertical Tabletop Planter

This weekend, I made a diy vertical tabletop planter and I am pretty thrilled with how it turned out. Originally, I wanted to make a large vertical succulent planter to hang on the deck but I don't really have a place to hang it. Also, small succulents are about $3 each which adds up to more than I wanted to spend. I decided to scale it back and diy a ...continue reading

Succulent Centerpiece

The succulent centerpiece is complete and the Spring dining room table is ready for its' closeup. I love the Spring tablescape and the succulent centerpiece so much that it will probably stick around for Summer too. One of the best things about the succulent centerpiece is that the succulents are faux. They will always look like this and they won't ...continue reading

Easter Decorating 2017

I hope you all had a great weekend. Saturday was cold and windy so I stayed in and did some Easter decorating. I also packed away my winter clothes, I am officially done with winter so I am taking an "Out of sight, out of mind" approach and hoping the warmer weather will follow. Quite a few years ago, I bought over sized eggs on clearance from Michael's. ...continue reading

Philadelphia Flower Show 2017

A couple of weeks ago Big Daddy and I went to Philadelphia for a few days. While we were there, we attended the Philadelphia Flower Show. We walked into the show expecting a big greenhouse. We couldn't have been more wrong. The show was spectacular! I took a ton of pictures to share with you. An ...continue reading

HomeGoods: What I Saw, What I Got and Where I Put it

After sharing my garage sale finds with you in my last post, I realized I miss sharing my finds with you. I haven't been to many estate/garage sales lately. Hopefully that will change as the weather gets nicer.  On one of my visits to Homegoods, there was so much good stuff/ inspiration. I thought I would share what I saw at HomeGoods, what I got and where I ...continue reading
