Outdoor Room Decor

TGIF, everybody!  I am (mostly) taking the day off from blogging because I am painting a few rooms in our new house--my downstairs office (right off the kitchen) and the hallway that leads into the kitchen from the garage. I have big plans for this hallway; I want to put built-ins in the pantry, … [Read more...]

Beautiful Outdoor “Rooms”

I know...isn't that the most gorgeous photo? I'm blogging over at Mohawk's Creative Home blog, and you can see more beautiful outdoor spaces that live like rooms {here}.  There's plenty of inspiration for your spring (and summer) deck, patio, or porch. I'd love it if you'd stop by and take a … [Read more...]

Burlap and Grapevine Fall Mailbox

They suffered, and died.  Except for the … [Read more...]

I cannot wait to see the leaves change and the harvest moon brightly shinning above.  Fall is by far, my favorite time of year. My hubby and I have always been into hiking, fishing and camping- we are … [Read more...]

Outside Entertaining Rack

This baker's rack has been completely repurposed into a drink server. You can see my summer "Girls' Night Out" party I hosted and how I used it as drink bar on the porch {here}. This baker's rack was sitting in my garage covered with junk for many years. I even tried to give it away, but there … [Read more...]
