If you’ve been reading this blog for more than a year, you know that at some point when temperatures start dropping, my thoughts start veering toward inside projects, so don’t be surprised that lots of inside DIY/decorating type posts are on the horizon!
I love beautiful bookcases, particularly when they aren’t overstyled for photos (books turned backwards irritates the heck out of me). This looks like it’s just a hallway/balcony but it’s such an amazing use of space. And that peek of shiplap on the right has me swooning (yes I’m on the shiplap bandwagon and yes, odds are you’ll see some in my house before too long).
Would you believe that is a vinyl floor? Genius.
I saw this recipe for caramel-pecan fudge tartlets in the King Arthur flour catalog and my mouth pretty much started watering immediately.
It might be very fun to give growing persimmons a try.
I keep thinking I should grow garlic, but I’m reluctant to give up the space in the garden.
Happy Halloween everyone! I don’t really do much (or, um, anything) for Halloween but I like it if only because it holds off the Christmas music a little longer. I have to say, I’m dreading the Christmas switch that will be flipped tomorrow. I think that the extension of Christmas into a two-month long build-up really takes away from the keeping the holiday special.
Hmm … somehow I just turned this post into a downer. Click on that Halloween link for a smile.
