Keeping up With the Furry Ones

Authors:

We are animal lovers…and if you look closely around our house, it shows. Thankfully my photography skills aren’t stellar because then you’d see the evidence more often. :) Most frequently the messes are hair balls on the floor and actual hair on the furniture. I never think it’s too bad around here until a friend with allergies visits or I...

Bringing the Outdoors in

Even though it’s not even officially summer yet, be on the lookout for sales on the outdoor stuff s...

Small but Mighty

Quick Fix: Plumping up the Flowers

Authors:

Welcome to the weekend! Whoot! I’m back today with a super quick flower tip. I shared this on social media this week but got a lot of questions so I thought more photos would be helpful.

If you love hydrangeas as much as I do (and who doesn’t, for real) then you’ll love this tip. I hear it works for other flowers like roses as well.

The Problem With Trees

Authors:

Welcome to the least thriftiest month of the year for us. :) Other than December that is. Now that the weather is nice the wallet is emptying because I want to buy ALL THE FLOWERS. I do my best to use perennials in my garden and beds but sometimes you want some beautiful, flowing petunias, you know?

Our temps here went from the mid-50’s t...

Softened Green in the Bedroom

Authors:

Hello there! I’m excited to share a little bit of progress in the guest room with you today! I was thrilled when Sherwin-Williams asked me to work with them again this year to help promote National Painting Week. I only work with companies I trust and love and they are one of them. I’m obsessed with their paint and use it almost e...
