Industrial FARMHOUSE window valance sign and table sized stencils

read

My ultimate dream home is a white farmhouse, with a wrap around porch, in the middle of a few rolling hills, with a creek or lake out back. Isn’t that a wonderful vision? Thing is, the farmhouse craze is currently alive and well all over the land. So, due to many requests, it was time to bring […]

The golden hour nature artist strikes again

read

After I returned home from an unexpected day spent in town, I glanced up towards the sky. It was still blue! There was still time. The forecast called for 3 intense storms, thanks to remnants of a typhoon. So I scrambled to get the lawn mowed as the sky started to gather a spotty appearance. As […]

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 […]

Stacked lime and purple hydrangeas for a fall mantel

So I decided to celebrate fall… Cabin Resort style this year! But there’s more… Today I’m teaming up with a TON of other desperately artistic […]

The shed encased with its fall shawl

read

Yawing to the beginning of a new day, I always like to glance outside before stumbling down the hallway towards the caffeine machine. The two cats are generally snoozing along side me somewhere, so after I scratched behind their ears, I stood up to take in the view. Overcast… normal. Wet… very normal. Green… oh yes. Quite […]

My secret to arranging hydrangeas

read

One of my most fondest memories of going to my grandma’s house was admiring her hydranga bushes.  Oh my goodness… they lined the entire one side of her house in heavenly, abundant blooms! Not being a green thumb at all these days, I’m always astounded that my own hydrangea bushes produce anything! It must be […]
