Christmas Place Cards from Grocery Store Flowers

Awesome friends, I have a fun post to share today! I am so excited to be reuniting with my Decor Enthusiast girls to share how you can use grocery store flowers to add a special touch to your holiday home!

Instead of my original perfect grouping of three, I now have  many pairs, with one being … [Read more...]

How to Create a Landscape from Scratch

First I am going to share with you how I came up with my landscape plan and the work that went into creating my planting beds.  After all, you can't plant anything until the beds are ready, … [Read more...]
