Spring + Summer Front Porch

I can not be more excited that the warm weather is here!  Over the last few weeks, it's been hot.  Spring skipped right over us this year, but after that brutal winter, who cares.  As I've mentioned once or twice, we've been working hard on vamping up the outdoors for the warmer days ahead.

I'm at it again...  another project!  And this is a biggie.  I know, I know....

Spring Mantel with Sensational Succulents #LowesCreator

Happy Monday!  Yes, it's Spring, but sadly it doesn't feel like it (at least here in NY).

Love ‘Connection’ Wood Sign #LowesCreator

You might think this is the lamest/dorkiest project ever or you might think "WOW, she's super creative".  Either way, once again Lowe's has put my creative, think-outside-the-box skills to the test. Similar to New Years, I'm not a big Valentine decorating.  Yes, you've seen my valentine burlap … [Read more...]
