Feature Friday: A Traditional Colonial Home & Garden

I know I say this a lot, but you really are in for a treat today!  I have a friend here in town, Betsy, who came to my first open house 5 years ago with her mom, Jeanette, and they both live in West Cobb.  Betsy has been reading my blog since I lived in Birmingham and recently told me that she came to one of my early yardsales over there before I moved back here (when I did a yardsale with my … [Read more...]

Daddy’s Garden This Year

He's been at it again.  Planting that garden of his.  This year, we all voted and decided that it was time for Daddy to quit planting his mountain garden and he finally realized he should listen to us (what choice did he have with 4 women voicing their opinions?).  His girls know best and he realizes we only want what is best for him and any man turning 90 in July should really only have one … [Read more...]

Tools for Those Outdoor Jobs

I've now been in my house for 4 years and wow, has it changed in the last few years.  Two years ago in April, my entire front yard was landscaped and that totally changed the front of my house in so many good ways. It was once a barren landscape of nothing, with only 2 trees anchoring the front yard and nothing else along the front of the house.  Landscaping truly makes such a difference in a home … [Read more...]
