Simple Thanksgiving Centerpiece Idea

I recently shared a reel over on Instagram of this Thanksgiving centerpiece idea.  It is so simple.  I grabbed the riser out of the storage unit that Deb made a few years back when we were at the old house.  It sat on our outdoor table under the pergola and I would decorate it every […]

Spooky Halloween Mantel

This spooky halloween mantel came to me in the middle of the night.  This happens when my brain is less active and can be creative.  I wanted to create a mantel with a ghost.  So I was brainstorming ways to make ghosts and even looking on Pinterest.  I finally decided that I wanted large one […]

Fall Front Porch Decor and White Jack-O-Lantern Makeover

Do you remember when I found this jack-o-lantern on our trip to Brown County?  It was amongst all of the junk at this janky flea market we stopped at.  I ALMOST didn’t get it.  But, I figured that it was excellent quality, no cracks, and it would be darling after a makeover.  And, you already […]

All Things Outside

String Lights around the Fire Pit and New White Pine

We have been wanting to add some outdoor string lights around the fire pit area again but just never took the time to do it.  There are some at the Squatter’s Camp, the Pergola Swing, and the back deck (new post coming soon on those).   They just add the perfect amount of twinkle to the woods.  […]

Lights Around the Pergola Swing

This pergola swing has been an ongoing project.  Do you remember when we started this.  I believe it was July 4 weekend.  Then it rained for 40 days and 40 nights.  Honestly, the project got put on hold for WEEKS because of the mud around that area.  We then got the brick pad done under […]
