In case you forgot this is what our old compost pile looked like: Why it was a problem: 1. It was full. There are six people sharing this one compost bin and we hadn’t done a thing with it since we moved in and exclaimed, “Sweet! There’s already a compost bin.” 2. We weren’t using [...]

Please go check out my guest post at Steady Mom. It’s something I’ve wanted to share for a while and I really enjoyed writing it. *** *** *** I know, I know. Not only did I leave you hanging, but I built up the suspense like maybe WAY too much. I’m afraid you may think [...]


Backyard Project :: The Intro

by flowers on April 8, 2010 · 9 comments

Since I got my diy insecurities off my chest I’m ready to share what we’ve been working on. We’ve been homeowners for 3 short years, but in that time we’ve learned that those great big to-do lists take much longer than originally thought. With this in mind (and with the reality based attitude that a [...]


DIY Disclaimer

I’ve realized that I talk a lot about our do-it-yourself enthusiasm more than I show any tangible results. Why?

Front Yard Project :: Phase III

by flowers on August 26, 2009 · 4 comments

We are making the very best use of our tiny urban space. Our current project is the piece of earth immediately in front of our house. It started out as our very own urban dust lot which we then prepped and installed the basic outline of our hardscape. We then installed a sandbox which has [...]


Front Yard :: Phase II

We’ve lit a home improvement fire under our behinds. We are dreamers and love looking forward to what is next. Recently we came to the conclusion that we need to put some conscious and focused energy into creating the space we initially envisioned for the house before we could move onto new horizons. You already [...]


Front Yard :: Phase I

by flowers on August 6, 2009 · 11 comments

We live in an urban area of a small city. Our front yard is about a 10 x 25 foot area bordering the public sidewalk with a large Norway Maple that shades the house nicely in the Summer. Neighbors have taken their own approach with their mini-piece of land; from overgrown grasses to flower gardens [...]
