Black and White Master Bath Progress Pics

It's been an exciting week at my house!  My tile contractor started last Tuesday on the master bathroom and it's been fun to watch the process and progress.  And it's really been fun to not be doing the work.  It was 4 years ago that my dad and I were knee-deep in this house renovation all during the summer and we worked like dogs getting this house done in 6 months enough that I could even move … [Read more...]

My Spring Yard and Exterior!

Spring is here in Atlanta and everything looks so lush and green right now. I love this time of year when all those fresh green shoots pop up everywhere and the trees leaf out with new growth.  It just feels so good to see all of that happen after the gloom and dreary days of Winter.  Bring on the Spring! The landscaping in my yard has really taken off too and it's been almost 2 years since it … [Read more...]

Southern Living Plants Additions

My yard has really exploded in the last year and the big reason is the Southern Living plants I was so blessed to get in my front yard. Those plants are growing like crazy now just in the first year and I can't wait to see them in a couple more years. Southern Living Plant collection has been so good to work with me and they asked me recently if I'd like some extra plants to use wherever I … [Read more...]

Repair and Paint a Block Wall

The ugly Wall. That's been my nemesis in this house ever since I bought it. That ugly block retaining wall at the end of my driveway has been an eyesore since day one.  We tackled the inside of the house and then I started on the outside, by adding the new front porch, stone retaining wall, and landscaping.  Wow, did that all make a difference. But, that wall was still mocking me, … [Read more...]
