Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    Putting Our Plentiful Garden to Bed

    As thanksgiving approaches and the promise of colder days loom, our Midwest garden has finally been put to bed for the winter. Fortunately for us, our tomatoes were overachievers this year and we are still feasting on their fruits. Every time I found a nice-sized red tomato this fall, I thought, "This is the last of them," but I was proven wrong time and again.

    Our New Farm-Inspired Slamming Screen Door

    I am so excited to share our latest home improvement project with all of you. While my husband may argue that it isn't really an improvement, I am simply in love with our new farm-inspired slamming screen door! I have had designs on this door for over eight years now and with the completion of several other porch projects, it was finally time to see (and hear) this baby do its thing.

    From My Fall Porch

    Well Halloween is finally here, so I thought it was about time I shared a glimpse of this year’s fall porch decor. It has been such an odd fall with its share of up and down temps (and an early snow fall), which has kept me jumping to save my plants from freezing. We carved up our jack o’ lantern last night and added it to the mix, so I hope we have at least a few trick or treaters visit our cozy home.
