Christmas Entryway Decorating Ideas

Decorating each room in the house for me, is a labor of love. The Entry is the first room guests see, so with that in mind I took my time with this room and added sentimental and rustic touches for Christmas.

Moving the Shed

Moving the Shed 

Moving a shed doesn't have to be a huge project. Using a little ingenuity and two car jacks one person can move a shed using the right materials.

I admit, moving the shed was a touchy subject around my house. When we first bought and put it together, we did not have a fence. So Greg was worried about someone getting into it and he wanted the door visible from the house but he didn't want it in the back portion of the yard.

Fall Garden Tour

Beautiful yard full of gorgeous fall color. Take a zone 5 tour through a beautiful Indiana garden in Fall

The Fall color that northwest Indiana has been getting this year has been just incredible. I have been snapping some photos with my new Canon camera. Yes I bought a new one to accompany my cell phone to just compare and see how good a videographer or photographer I can be.

When I feel like it that is.

Creating a gorgeous Fall porch that's inspiring, classic and easy to do.


It's Fall tour time! A classic black and white color scheme and mixing in my signature favorite color of purple is truly relaxing this time of year. It signifies that a hot season filled with weeds, sweating and having to shave my legs is coming to a close.

How to use Trees or plants for more privacy in your home


Hi friends! I was going to name this post "What to do when you're neighbor is a big jerk" but Google says only 67 million people search for articles like that. 

So I switched it up to how to use plants for privacy. Plus maybe being a little less bitchy about what a stranger does with his own property sounds like I take the high road.

More then I actually do.

Hi Garden friends!
Where oh where do I start? I have been wanting to show you all the updates around the yard, but trying to keep it pristine, weed free and free of dog poo is a full time job.
