It's summer time and with summer comes outdoor grillin'. There is nothing better than sitting on the back deck with a toddy watching Hubby grill up some steaks or chicken or ribs or...you get the idea. For years he has had little elbow room to perform his savory smoke flavored show.Read More
The kitchen. The place that is the heart of home because, as you know, the way to the heart is with food. Good thing Hubby likes to cook!
I dream that one day I will magically discover the perfect way to organize my kitchen. Hence the rotation of kitchenware, spices, grains, pots, pans, plastic...you get the picture.
Going vertical seemed like the right move.
Pacific Northwest spring. This season we have had little rain allowing for some good ole' fashion garden back-breaking work. I'd like to say I'm one of those year round gardeners. You know the kind. The garden is tilled, mulched, and cared for no matter the time of year. But I am not. You'd be surprised though, what some diggin' in the dirt gets you.Read More
I'm not sure if this is a manufacture home thing or what, but my four kitchen drawers are narrow. My kitchen is small to boot. Figuring out where to store everything is a challenge. Storing it in a smart way...well that, my friends, was what I set out to do on this rainy day weekend.Read More
I am a tad bit obsessed with meaningful messages. Throughout my home you will find life messages. Some that are deep and others, somewhat of a duh message. Most I painted free-hand style (I'm still behind the print-impose-paint method.). My signs are not perfect. I kind of like that. Life isn't perfect.Read More
When my step-mom gave me this crate, I knew exactly what I could do with it. On a rainy day I pulled this thing out and got to work. The RV needed two solutions: a foot stool and more storage. I solved both.Read More
I never dreamed I would have a greenhouse cabin. It has become my she-shed where I can play in the dirt or work on some home projects. Hubby built me a potting bench, seed starter shelves, a tomato bed, and lots of storage space. And if one day the greenhouse has run its course, would be pretty easy to convert into a guest cabin.Read More
A small kitchen cart on wheels finally find its purpose in life--from microwave storage cart to bar cart. I'm finally happy with this DIY tale.
I have always wanted a kitchen island. We found this brand new one at a yard sale for only twenty dollars. Score!Read More
I've been pinning all sorts of pendant lighting. So when I went on a Goodwill hunt, I never imagined I'd find this. I couldn't believe it! I found this lovely for only ten dollars. Ten dollars!?Read More
If you are a crafter or collector of any sort, you understand the need to figure out how to store all the stuff that goes with that....Taking trash and turning it into something useful is one of those projects that doesn't take the whole day to do. I like simple.Read More
One of the things I've always been drawn to is the beauty of nature. Growing up I often explored the back woods. My partners were our four-legged friends. I'd get lost looking at the trees or following the dear trails. When my day was rough, I'd seek the solitude of the woods. Peace blanketed me and my inner conflict was eased.Read More
Create a closet storage system without costing a dime.
Our closet is one of those standard manufactured home systems where the doors slide across each side. The problem is my side is also...cough...his side.Read More
