Returning the Nutrients

Part II: Putting the Garden to Bed There is no better garden than next year’s garden. Unknown quote, but it’s my favorite saying But First, a Snack Before putting the garden to bed, it’s always a good idea to give the soil and any perennial plants a snack before bed. They might not “eat” duringContinue reading “Returning the Nutrients”

Mid-Summer Gardening: A Check In

As promised, I am updating you all on the traveling home adventure of restoring my mother-in-law’s flower garden. I’ll be honest, I was skeptical that it would be successful. Lavender is very fussy and it was absurdly hot the day I did my heavy pruning. Both activities cause a LOT of stress on plants andContinue reading “Mid-Summer Gardening: A Check In”

Garden Rehab

Welcome to my traveling home adventure! Last weekend was my mother-in-law’s birthday. We spent the weekend with her in Vermont and it was incredibly hot – and it was only May!

And if you’ve been seeing the news over the past few years, less and less of our recycling is actually being recycled.Continue reading “DIY Fabric Softener”

It’s the Harvest Gold for Me

We were very lucky to find a house with 2 full baths in our price range back in 2015. That being said, we knew that both bathrooms would need to be gutted. Like every mid-century modern home, ours came with colorful bathrooms. At least the toilets weren’t colored. That saved some money! Let’s get startedContinue reading “It’s the Harvest Gold for Me”
