More from the garden.
More from the garden.
We have decided to start a vegetable garden this year. Well, last year we had tomatoes. But this year we want to grow much more. The plan is to build four raised vegetable garden beds. And then build a little fence around them so Klaus won’t ruin them. Our journey started with a weekend trip to Lowes. Because Lowes knows.
Distraction one —oooh pretty flowers.
Distraction 2 —”Hey, this drawer pull looks like a mustache!”
aaaaaaaand my camera died. Thats the first round of pictures from the Our First Garden series.
When we moved into the house it was filled with these brass door knobs of which I do not approve.
Changing all of the doorknobs in the house was a project we could have put off. Except for one thing. The knob on our bedroom door keeps popping right off everytime we grab it. So we took a little trip to our local Lowes today and purchased a doorknob of which I did approve. When we arrived home the husband installed it and we have decided that….we love them!
Ahhhhh, much better. They are the Gatehouse brand in aged bronze and they are only eleven bucks! Nice.
Simply Seafoam baby!!
Featuring my totally awesome locker inspired shelving. I ordered some locker numbers from a locker supply company and am planning on gorilla gluing them to the bins. Everything else came from Lowes!
We finished priming the study today, and tried out our sample colors.
The one on the left is Valspar – Simply Seafoam and the one on the right is Soft Jade, but I can’t remember if it is Martha Stewart or Seaside Retreats!
We chose (drumroll please)………..
Simply Seafoam! We are planning on painting tomorrow night.
We’re starting to tackle the study! Well, painting it anyway. My mother in law and sister in law are coming to stay with us next weekend, so we wanted to get one more room painted. This morning we spackled.
We are planning on adding a master bath/closet to our house…one day. I’m hoping for sometime next year whereas my husband is not so much into making plans. He’s more the “It’s not going to be anytime soon” kinda guy. I, on the other hand, have been saving tons of inspiration pictures for decor and layout. I do know one thing for sure about this maybe one day bathroom. There will be no shower curtain. I really hate shower curtains. They make me paranoid and claustrophobic. We dont have to have a tub at all , as long as I have my shower curtainless shower. Here are some of my inspiration saves.

Right now I’m really leaning towards something like this, but instead of a bench in the back having a tub. Awesomeness.
Our house had absolutely no lighting in the back and that just doesnt work for me. We had Mr.Electric come out today and give us some quotes for two flood lights, a back porch light, and another electrical socket in the kitchen. He installed the two flood lights, but we’ll have to save the rest for another day….when we have more monetary funds.
YaY for new floodlights!
When I arrived to the door to go back inside, our baby puppy was anxiously awaiting. Just look at that little wet nose against the door!
When we arrived back home from our Birmingham wedding in the wee hours of Sunday morning, we had just missed a storm and discovered a huge fallen limb taking up our whole front yard. The next morning the husband promptly took a trip to our local Lowes where he purchased some work gloves, a hatchet, and a hacksaw.
He was successful in getting all the smaller limbs off of the big limb, but when he came to getting the biggest part down we realized we needed a chainsaw. Luckily our neighbor from across the street witnessed our struggles and came to the rescue with his chainsaw and his chainsaw skills.
We are shower people, we don’t like to soak in the tub. When we moved into the house the shower head was acting wonky and spraying in all different directions. My husband did some research and came to the conclusion that the diverter was broken. We decided to remedy the wonky shower problem this afternoon. Well, lets be honest, I supervised….a little.
We bought and installed a new faucet and shower head. Nothing fancy, just not wonky.
