Backyard and Patio

Backyard and Patio

This is the time of year that I start thinking about my back yard and deck.  It’s so cold in upstate New York right now, that is probably why I start thinking about summer.  I like to think about how I can make my yard and deck different than last summer.  This will be my second summer here, and I was using patio furniture that I have had for years.  It’s time for a major update at my home this summer! So I starting shopping on my website for my backyard and patio.  I can wait to add some new...

As For My House

Let me start by telling you a little about myself.  I have lived in upstate New York most of my life, I did recently spend 5 beautiful years in Burlington, Vermont, and then after loosing both my parents, I decided to move back to New York to be close to my sister and brother and my two daughters and my two young grandchildren 5 and 18 months.  I am not a very crafting person even after spending 15+ years working in a craft store, the last 5 years as the General Manager.   I did purchase items like LED candles,...

Tiny Kitchen

Tiny Kitchen

In my current home my kitchen is tiny.  The last couple homes I had were open floor plans, which I loved.  Not that they really make the kitchen that large, but you had the island where the sink and dishwasher were, so everything was conveniently located around you.  Also, both of those floor plans had small pantry’s. So by adding a few things, I have made my new tiny kitchen work for me.  I needed more counter space for my appliances, so I bought a bakers rack for the little bit of  wall space that I have, which is a great way...
