I wanted the room to have the feeling of fall, but not just be a fall room. So here are some fun touches I added this year to my space… Read More

Fall touches…my family room

I think I’ve mentioned before. I love fall. It is probably my most favorite season of the year. Most years I have gone all out with my fall decorating.

I wanted to have a cozy fall feel to the room without the clutter of too much stuff. It is different.. Read More

Outdoor bench

  When I was creating my porch this year I decided that I wanted to make a bench for it. I had been looking online and found the instructions for this bench here . It literally took this much wood to create a great bench, and it cost about $15. My hubby and I (mostly my hubby) followed the instructions and it turned out awesome. I wanted it to stand out..

Sunflower pots

Are you looking for something fun and unusual to pot flowers in? A few years ago, I found these metal garbage cans and decided they would be great to use as planters for my patio. Each year I planted something in them, and just didn’t love how it turned out. Then this year I was shopping and found these sunflowers. They are small, great for pots, and look great in.. Read More

It is what I am most interested in. I had never been to Germany, so it was.. Read More
