Baby Easter Basket Feature

Baby’s 1st Easter Basket

Russian Sage Bundle for Rustic Fall or Winter Decorating

Each autumn we trim our Russian Sage, or Perovskia Atriplicifolia, nearly to the ground. We do this to keep our plants healthy and thriving.

DIY String Art Project & Tutorial

Have you seen string art on Pinterest, yet? Every now and then, I see an adorable string art image pop up and I find myself pinning it almost every time. Here’s what I love about string art:

  1. The colors and color schemes you can incorporate.
