Ten Minute Project / Crocus Planter

Easy & Inexpensive Spring Crocus Planter Using Bulbs from the Grocery Store.

Although we’ve had a fairly mild winter compared to last year, I can’t help but feel a little hum-drum this time of year. Even if all the snow has melted and it’s warm by February’s standards, I’m craving the beautiful green that comes along with Spring. Branches budding out, bulbs peeking through, birds chirping… it’s […]

Front Porch Decorating: Winter Swag

Winter Swag Outdoor Decorating Project for the Christmas Season

During the Christmas season, I like to keep decorating around our house simple. Aside from our tree and a few tchotchkes, most of our decor is winter-themed rather than Christmas per se. I began this a few years ago when it didn’t feel quite right to start pulling Christmas decor out in early November. However, […]

Lavender Infused Sugar

Lavender Infused Sugar

I started with one tiny lavender plant years ago that has spread into a tiny garden of sorts. Nothing like the beautiful fields of Provence, but my own little pièce de résistance.

Paint Projects for the Outdoor Extravaganza

It’s the last week of this year’s Outdoor Extravaganza, PAINT PROJECTS! Finally, the weather cooperated this past week and I was able to put in some good hours outside.

Weathered Bench Container Garden

Weathered Bench Container Garden_3

A couple summers ago, I discovered two weathered benches in an old shed at my parents’ farm that I decided to bring home with me. I managed to paint the larger one a bright yellow color for the Outdoor Extravaganza last year, and it eventually made its way to our front porch. The other smaller sized […]
