tulip birdhouse garden 2017-004

It all started about a week ago. My nightly walks were making me feel a little too out-of-sorts kinda sore. Then BAM. Within a week I was in full throttle sick-with-bronchitis. What in the world?!

2017 junk stash organizing-6988

I’ve started a few new good habits lately. One is walking every evening. I put the bike riding away for a spell because I wanted to see if walking would offer a few more health benefits. So far I do feel stronger, and have a little more spring in my step! Yay me! I think […]

2017 mini indoor tool station-6895

The same treatment was done in our little entryway closet, and this was the result. I can’t seem to find the before picture, so I’ll spare you […]

It’s no secret that I am an old sign fanatic. I just find the look enticing, and totally fits in with any season. But that can be a bad thing too… One place I really love to do something special with is behind my kitchen stove. This Bakery sign stood the test of time for an entire […]

Potting Shed sign in Somerset Home Magazine 2017-006

It never gets old, friends. I was over the moon DELIGHTED when Somerset Home desired to publish my funky little potting shed sign on the shed. Life sure has a funny way of working itself out. A little behind the scenes mentality… This project started out as a means of introducing some garden themed stencils to […]
