Garden Gallery: An Oregon Coast Garden

This Oregon coast garden created by Mosaic Gardens is full of beautiful ideas.  There is nothing typical about this design.  Catching my eye are the over-sized arbor over the ‘L’ shaped bench.  Typically you might see a narrower arbour over a single bench.

DIY: Ana’s Pottery Barn Look-A-Like Sofa

I am soooo impressed with Ana’s  ingenuity!  She lives in Alaska and when she saw the Wetherby sectional from potterybarn (and fell in sofa love) she got resourceful and decided to build her own.
