Potting Shed shutters and new flowers for the shed

read

Well, as you already know from the greenhouse touring post, I buckled down and bought some new flowers for summer. With a freshly pressure washed shed, this thing was ready for blooms! I really did love last summer’s Potting Shed rake sign with the potted flowers, however I wanted to do something slightly different this […]

Genius planter boxes, a great new weeder and flowers

read

I told myself… “You don’t need them. Don’t do it! You like not watering… no flowers will be FINE!” But, what is it about hot sunny days that make you sprint for the local greenhouse anyway?! Ah well, I was weak and went. And came back with stuff of course.  Which is ok. My Potting […]

Sign stenciled fabric for the pallet wood chairs

read

Blame this one on Bliss Ranch’s AMAZING chairs. And then came I Restore Stuff’s crazy cool carpet. And then there’s Front Porch Mercantile’s decadent bench idea… Oh my goodness. I resolved to try those ideas somewhere! I just didn’t know where yet. Until this past week… As you know from my last post, I just finished pressure […]

Cleaning up the corners, outdoors and within.

I am rather proud of me. I use to work all day, then all evening. Or even late into the night to compensate for day appointments. Workworkwork. These days, my regular routine is much different. Much. After dinner, I get outdoors and walk or bike or both. Then I come into the house, shower, then basically collapse […]

When one simple thing gets published

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 […]

When my dear blogging friend Carole from Garden Up Green asked me to review her new gardening book coming out, the first words out of my mouth were, “It’s about time!” Carole lives in the country on a hobby farm, […]

The Mill House in Maui. A dream restaurant for junkers, plus.

read

When Michael from Inspired by Charm was in Maui the same time we were this past summer, he shot me a message of a MUST stop, with a picture similar to the one above. Apparently there was this junk inspired restaurant in the middle of a plantation that I needed to see. What in the world?! […]

Mums and pumpkins front door fall decor and shed bed head tour

read

I knew it would happens soon. The wind was starting to kick up, and the grapevine was turning vibrant! But in no time, every leaf would be gone. So it was time to RUN outdoors to take one last shed shoot of the season… fall style. But what enticed me out there the most was a recent, […]

You guys… I did something totally spontaneous this past weekend, that I cannot wait to blog about! I even bought another point and shoot camera for the trip (after having lost my last one on our Hawaiian vacay). I needed some mountain time before fall hit hard, so I head for the hills for a […]
