Another Curb Appeal Improvement

House after - The 2 Seasons

When we moved into our 1928 bungalow three years ago, it needed a new roof, a new paint job, shutters, and major landscaping.  Little by little, we have gotten all of those items checked off of our to-do list.  However, one eye-sore remains, and getting it done will be costly.  Our front steps and mini-porch […]


Comfort Wins Out in the Kitchen


Hi everyone!  While you are reading this, I could be on my way to Jordan’s for my week-long visit.   Perhaps I am waiting in an airport lounge or maybe I have already landed.  Whatever stage of travel I am in, you all know the two of us will have the best time.  As soon as […]


Showing Some Love to Our Adirondack Chair

Adirondack Chair

We live close to the Adirondacks and spend many summer weekends there, so we decided it would be nice to have our own Adirondack chair.  Last year Mr. Spring started sawing pieces of wood and made one for our backyard.  It is amazing that these chairs are actually comfortable.  Once the chair was made, we […]


My Beadboard Wallpaper


I swore (actually I double swore) that I would never add another speck of wallpaper to any wall in any home that I owned.  Well, I lied.  I just finished a little wallpaper project in my pantry/office that has made a huge impact on the way it looks.  Unfortunately, the photos are only so-so.  You’ll […]


A New Look for Old Wicker

Updating Wicker Chair

When I was pregnant with our son Cory (his music blog is here), I bought an old wicker rocker at an estate auction for $20.00.  It was in such poor condition that my husband was embarrassed to carry it to the car.  I was a high school teacher at the time, and the boys in […]


Ikea Dresser Hack

Ikea Dresser Hack

Happy Tuesday, everyone.  Thank goodness summer is finally here so I can get back in the garage and paint some furniture that needs some TLC.


Bar Revisited

Changing Table turned Bar

Hi everyone.  It’s so good to be back in the blogging mode.  I want to thank my mom who has been running this show solo for the past two weeks or so.  Since it’s the beginning of June, we want to revisit one of our most popular blog posts ever.  I did this project last […]


Adding Real Estate to the Courtyard

Courtyard before

When we first moved into our home, there was a pesky tree in our courtyard.  It was planted near our sunroom and added much-welcomed shade over the class ceiling/roof.  However, I called that tree pesky for a reason.  It was shedding something almost every month of the year – at least every month that we […]


How to Refresh Your Towels

Use Vinegar to renew towels

My towels have not been as soft and plush as they once were, and I wasn’t quite ready to buy new ones.  I learned a little tip I thought I would share.  Beware!  It does include vinegar (which I am not a fan of), but I know the results are amazing.


Updates in Our Office, Part 2

Built in Billy Bookcase

Welcome back everyone to our home office project.  You can see part one here.  Just as background, I want to remind you that we purchased Billy bookshelves from Ikea and customized them into built-in office shelves.     Here they are, and I love them.  It is amazing how the adding the trim and molding […]
