A Walk Around the Woods this Week

Last week, I shared that I have so many pretty pictures on my phone.  Because it is always with me, I am always ready for photos ops.   The picture above is one that I snapped on the way back from the mailbox one morning when the fog was almost lifted.  It was really pretty out […]

DIY Sidewalk by the Cottage

Deb and I shared this DIY sidewalk by the cottage over on social media several weeks ago.  It wasn’t until now that I had time to share it here.  I have stated before that we want everything to look like it’s been here forever – including little things like sidewalks.  We love to use items […]

Gorgeous Old Fountain Repurposed

Did you hear?  Our neighbors had a HUGE fountain that they no longer wanted.   Of course, they knew who to call.  ????  We get messages and phone calls a lot asking if we want certain items.  The fountain has some issues.  Number one, the pump doesn’t work, which is no big deal as we could […]

Landscaping around the Pond Deck

We recently had a pond dug on the property.  It is very small but it serves the purpose that we wanted it for.  It takes up space so Deb doesn’t have to mow so much grass.  ????  It gives us a great watering hole to jump into when we are working outside sweating our butts […]

A Walk Around the Woods this Week

We spend every waking moment outside.  That is, of course, when we can.   I grew up in Indiana and Deb grew up in Ohio.  But we were only 15-20 minutes from each other. I tell you this because people get confused because I’ve talked about Indiana and Ohio both.   Anyway, it gets pretty dang cold […]

New Addition to the Pond – A Deck

I was sent a photo over on Instagram of a small deck built by a pond.  We both fell in love with the look and decided that we would love one of our own.  The sunsets are so beautiful out here in the country in Ohio.  So, this deck will give us another little seating […]

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.  […]

Sunday Spruce-up Project – A Deck Makeover

I mentioned over on Instagram that we were doing a Sunday spruce-up.  Several people said they would love for it to be a regular thing.  Fact:  We work on projects A LOT, which is probably an understatement.   Some of them are major projects like the lamp post we installed last year by the small garage.  […]
