4th Of July Welcome Decor

Remember my Picket Fence Planter? I know, it has been a long time since I’ve done anything fun to it. This time though, I have updated it with 4th of July Welcome Decor! I still need some form of patriotic banner for it but considering the holiday is 2 days away, I’m not sure this […]

Above Ground Garden

 Did everyone have a good Mother’s Day? I sure did! I was pampered with a pedicure (and the guy doing my pedicure took pity on my swollen pregnant feet and extended my massage. It was amazing), I had my baby shower the next day, followed by sleeping in on Sunday! I also got these for […]

I think the amazing part is that there isn’t an extension cord involved, and there is no “extra” bulbs strung across half of another side. This backyard lighting involved splitting existing wire for the light […]
