Bathroom Flowers

I love having fresh flowers in the house, in particular, in the bathroom so every morning I see them while getting ready and start my day. I usually try to spend around $5 for a bundle and Trader Joe’s is a good place to find them; however, while at Michael’s I came across these really…

Popiscle Stick Work-Out

Pinterest Inspired Log Bench = Success!!

After seeing this log bench on Pinterest (photo on left from 1001gardens.org/2015/06/15-diy-log-ideas-for-your-garden/), my husband took his chainsaw and built the same bench (see photo on right) at our property.
