    Powerful women for sure !

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you so much! We will for sure have ferns because we buy them every summer whatever house we are in… and if we can find some perennials from friends, we will probably plants some. But we won’t buy any.

    Talked my husband into an 11F walkway out to our fire pit. Thanks for taking us along. Love what you’re doing on a budget! Now to get him to agree to a pergola!

    I applaud you guys! How do ever stay so humble when you can turn straw into gold??!!

  12. Lisa says:

    That looks GREAT! What a cool find, definitely one of a kind. I love how you make something look wonderful for minimal dollars. I’ve been reading your blog for a month or so now and I’m glad that I started reading. I love how you’re using common items (other than the first state bank limestone… not common at all) and making your home look fantastic and inviting.

    I agree with a previous comment, your projects are all magazine worthy!

  16. Penny says:

    You both are such fun folks with such GREAT ideas – an inspiration to us all during these trying times. Hopefully, and maybe you can talk the landlord into letting you take the concrete bank stones with you when you leave. Too bad he/she won’t kick in a couple of $$ and let you have at in and improve that outdoor space! Happy Easter!!

    Looks great! If you were closer, I would give you some hostas and Siberian irises .
