Vertical Garden

  It’s been so long since I was last on here.  We had many projects come together during the summer. But, then the girl’s started school and I was overwhelmed.  Both girls are now going either full time or part time. You’d think it would give me more time to write.  But to be honest, I needed…

Finishing the Fence

This past November we had to rebuild part of the fence.  In February I finally got to staining the remainder.  However, there was a last bit that wasn’t complete on our side. One could say it was the hardest part, the part behind the pool pump.  When my mom came to visit in March she…

What ugly AC unit?

 We’re being audited.  The worst of the worst right?  I set days aside to get a sitter and coordinate with Dave’s work schedule so I could focus on financial paperwork continuously. But before I was forced to sit for any extended amount of time I had to work off some of my agitation with a…

E and K Vintage Wood

I’m finally getting to building a king size bed for us.  It’s either now or in 2.5 years. That’s what pregnancy will do to you. It lights a fire under your ass to get stuff done.  I have 8 weeks to go till my due date.  So it is on! I spent the last two…

Back to the drawing boards!

So……. we got a new mattress! It’s a king. We moved up from a queen.  I had a bed design ready to go and was ready to build,  but with the bigger mattress in the room my design has gone out the window.  Even though the mattress is bigger the room feels bigger.  Odd right? …
