Printable Plant Wrapping Paper

As the spring flowers start to peak their little tips above ground, I am reminded that we are entering into flower picking season.  Last year, where ever I could, I passed on the standard bottle of wine hostess gift and instead made arrangements from my garden.

Easy Earthy Easter Eggs

Easy Earthy Easter Eggs

I had a hunch that my kid’s temporary tattoos might be my easy trick for making interesting eggs this year.  It turns out the idea works pretty well with a few pointers (see below).

Cozy Lights for the New Patio

Cozy Lights for the New Patio

It feels so good to have the pergola mostly finished (we still have to stain it but we’ve relented…that just isn’t going to happen until spring).  We had a little gathering of friends and hastily put up some lights so that we could see at night and so that we had a little ambiance. Without…
