Target 'Dollar Bin' Herb Garden

a cute & easy garden project


The concept of 'time' seems to be luxury idea for me these days. I don't recall another point in my life where I've been busier but I don't want to give up on the simple pleasures of life. For me, a full-blown garden this summer seems like it may be out of the question (stay tuned) but a simple little herb garden seemed feasible thanks to the help of Target's dollar-bin.

Our Stamped Concrete Patio Makeover

making room for stylish outdoor living 


When we built our home in 2013 we had our contractor lay a pad of crusher run so we could take the dogs out on what was mainly a mud pit at the time. The pad was temporary (so we thought). But four years later we found that this was a project we never took on and was long overdue. Our goal was to create a large patio space with room for a fire pit area, eating area and seating/hot tub area. 

Cream & Black Tablescape

Neutral table setting for a spring~country look



Spring is in the air friends! My hens are laying and spending their days in the sunshine (see all those gorgeous eggs on the table). The grass is greening and the trees are budding. It's a magical time of year where everything comes back to life, and one of my personal favorites!

Fixer Upper Inspiration

Industrial/Country Dining Room Design

Two days of being snowed-in with a record breaking nor'easter in Upstate New York during mid-March does things to you. Expensive things. Like - making me design and purchase an entirely new dining table, chairs, lighting and decor.

The transitional tablescape

Late Winter / early spring inspired dining decor
{whites, pewter & peat moss}

The transition from the holiday season to the Spring is one I look forward to every year. For me, it is a time of tranquility and reflection. A time to put away all of the "clutter" (mentally and physically) that can accompany the hustle and bustle of the holidays, and focus on the peace and clarity that comes with those late winter months.   

Interior 'Board & Batten' Design


This design element is not just for barns and stables


Texture is often the forgotten element of design. Most homes (including mine) consist of painted sheetrock walls and white ceilings. We can thank modern-day designers and builders (like Chip & Joanna Gaines) for bringing back shiplap walls and other textures that you would've found standard in old, historic homes. The craze for custom interior looks has further been fueled by the DIY community on websites such as Pinterest, Houzz, Hometalk, etc. - sharing their tips on simple 'do-it-yourself' projects that have great impact! This is so true of board & batten --- an easy and impactful way to customize any room in your room.
