Deuce Cities Henhouse

I know I have been missing the last few weeks. I’ve been racing the weather trying to tie up a bunch of loose ends at the cabin before the winter really starts to set in – which it’s starting to do right about now. I’ve spend a handful of extra long weekends at the cabin where I stay on to work after the family heads home for the week. There has been so much to do this year, and I hope to explain a lot of it in more detailed posts as I settle into my role as blogger and out of my role as full-time handyperson. READ MORE

Dark Wood Trim and White Walls

Inspiration : Dark Woodwork and Light Walls

Holy crap. That’s what I say to myself as I scroll through this amazing four square home of Hillary and Jim Straatman, designed by Lisa Staton and photographed by Haris Kenjar. Have you ever had that experience with inspirational images? It’s only happened to me a handful of times where something I see hits me like a ton of bricks ...

My Autumn Garden

My Autumn Garden

Hello! I just wanted to pop-on and share my end-of-season garden with you. The fall has never been my garden's best look, and I thought why not show the good and the bad.

Mini Update at the Cabin

I did something that I don't normally do a few weeks back. I impulse shopped. I'm a planner when it comes to design and I really enjoy the process of dreaming and scheming and double checking before I purchase anything. For me, it makes my purchases feel really good and intentional. I don't want to regret stuff I buy, and ...

No Touch Smart Watering System for your window boxes, planters and lawn

Drip Irrigation & Smart Watering

I had a problem. I wanted to spend huge chunks of time at this cabin this summer, but I also wanted not kill my window boxes and lawn due to lack of watering. What's a girl to do? A few years back I had set up a timer to our spigot. The timer was capable of having two different zones, ...

Outside At the Cabin

Oh woah, it’s nearly August already? I forget that having two kids with July birthday’s really makes the month fly by. I’ve been working on a lot of little things this summer, each of them taking up a day here and there, sometimes it’s hard to tell if I’m really making progress at all. I was really hoping by now ...
