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.

Weathered Bench Container Garden

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 […]

Outdoor Decorating Projects for the Outdoor Extravaganza

Decorating for the Outdoor Extravaganza seemed to be a struggle for everyone this year. Many of us have had cold, rainy, sometimes snowy weather, and even a bit of hail. The grass is still patchy and some shrubs have just started to peek out. I’m not going to complain, though, since Kristin was dealing with […]
