Scary Stairs

Hey Guys! I was supposed to be cleaning windows yesterday (SO lame), and I was supposed to be bloggin' about my foundation garden today; however, I got distracted by my ugly basement stairs and I just started taking them apart instead of doing all of that other boring crap.

Macrame Beaded Hanging Planter & Giveaway

Hello Peoples! How are you guys doing? It's Monday, and I have a really cool project to share with you plus another awesome giveaway - you can thank my pals at Ace for that! It's finally starting to be porch season, the weather is coming around a bit, and things are starting to feel ah-very nice (ala Borat). We've been hanging in our porch whenever we're not doing the million other things that we're always doing. I always get antsy for a project after getting back into porch life. I just READ MORE
