I've been a cleaning and organizing freak lately! Look at me go - another project in the bag! This little desk has been sitting in my garage for, oh, almost 2 years. Poor thing. It's so cute! And now... So pretty! I sprayed it with Moss Green Satin from Rust-Oleum. And surprisingly, it only took one … Continue reading Rattan Chevron Moss Green Table
I do not like plastic furniture. I quite dislike anything plastic. But I dislike being wasteful more. Quite a few years ago we wanted lounge chairs for the backyard. Of course I wanted teak ones. But not having much money hinders that plan. Coincidentally, I literally stumbled across these while on a walk. Someone was … Continue reading Plastic Lounge Chairs Makeover
Finally getting around to decorating for the holidays. And trying to do that with the two tornadoes (my daughters) isn't so easy. But I managed to make a wreath. It's a super basic one with noble tree trimmings, succulents and dusty miller. I just wired everything together onto a metal hanger from the dry cleaners. … Continue reading Holiday Succulent Wreath
I LOVE Halloween. But this year I have two kids under the age of 4 and they're really eating into my scary movie time. I'm a horror fanatic. So if making tissue ghosts and paper bats is as close to spooky-ness as I can get, well, I guess I'll take it. But The Walking Dead … Continue reading Creepy Ghosts and Bats

My new Lil' Buddy the vintage partridge. Got him at an estate sale. Was thinking of selling him but I … Continue reading Kitchen Banquette
Procrastinating as usual. I have a bunch of photos to share from Paris but some how I keep putting them aside. So in the meantime, here is a new arrangement of succulents and Dusty Miller in my vintage flower frog. Ta da!
I went to the hardware store yesterday for some drawer pulls (didn't find any) and some how came out with a cart full of plants. It was a nice spring day and hanging out in the garden center made my lunch hour a bit longer. 😉 That, and the clearance section I found. $1 plants! … Continue reading Garden Sale!
Just a little indoor activity while it's hailing outside! Well, it hailed for about 2 minutes but I'll take it! My daughter Cambria and I were playing with her Eco playdoh and as we were cutting out shapes I decided to arrange the ever-so-popular triangular design and snap a few quick photos. Who says you … Continue reading Rainy-day playdoh time.
I've been looking for one of these for a while. Whenever I was in a shop with bathroom accessories I would check out the toothbrush holders but never committed. Until now! This one is perfect. The glass bowl is nice and heavy and I believe the flower frog lid is silver plated. I found it … Continue reading Flower Frog
