Mid Summer Farmhouse Junk Garden Update & a Lack of Communication

Mid Summer Farmhouse Junk Garden Update I’ve never been an avid gardener, but this year I felt the desire to really try my hand at flower gardening. So this is an update on my junk garden – what grew well, what didn’t, and what I’d do differently.

Weekending | Room Reset and a Rusty Pitchfork

This week has been a Longgggg one. Seriously. My teenage son got his first real job, which is a huge “hip hurray,” but he doesn’t have his driver’s license yet.  So you know what that means?

Guest House Refresh Because Company Is Coming

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc., and its advertiser.  All opinions are mine alone. #BigLotsHome#CollectiveBias I freak out a little when I  have a house guest coming. Actually, I freak out a lot. I know they come to see us, and not our house, but I want our guests to feel welcome, be comfortable, and not wish they had booked a hotel room instead of staying with us. 🙂 My oldest son’s girlfriend is arriving for a visit {Read More}

Guest House Fall Window Box Refresh for Fall

I don’t really “do” Halloween, but quite unintentionally, sometime between May and September, my cute little guest house turned into a haunted house … spider webs and all. I was away from home for several weeks at a time this summer, and all the pretty flowers in my pallet window box died in my absence. When I came home from the most recent trip last week, I discovered that the spiders had taken up residence and had made webs in every corner {Read More}

DIY Wall Art With Your Own Custom Message

There are lots of ways to make signs, but if you want a simple and inexpensive method, I’ve got a DIY wall art project today that can be customized with your own special quote or message! You don’t need any special equipment, you just need a piece of wood for the sign, paint, stickers, glue and a paintbrush.

Ladder Plant Stand Blooming in the Guest Room

I usually fill the rungs of the  ladder in my guest room with old things, but it occurred to me that since the ladder sits right next to the window, I should take advantage of that natural light and use it as a plant stand – at least through the summer and fall months. I took down the cafe lights I had hung in there (seen here), because I’m hoping to move the lights to either our front patio or back {Read More}

Cafe Lights in the Guest Room

When your kids are babies, life is all about cute little outfits, decorating the nursery, and getting photos to mark their 3rd, 6th, 9th, and 12th month moments, and nobody really warns you about what may be coming in the days ahead, do they?

Guest House Renovation…{My Dream Room}

We’re in the middle of several projects right now, including fixing up our 1980’s RV, which probably won’t get done until next year.  Most days, it’s too hot for my husband to work inside it, so I came up with a new project for him – wasn’t that sweet of me?  Fortunately, he didn’t seem to mind my idea much, once I explained my “vision”. When we moved into our house about a year and a half ago, I was {Read More}
