Coming Back with a Kick-Off Giveaway!

Hi! I’m still here, and getting ready to start the blogging season! Yay!!

This summer has totally flown by…

every year I get older and the time goes faster and faster…

I can’t believe it’s already October!

What did you do this summer?

I spent many, many days outside taming the landscape and gardens around our newly purchased house, (actually bought it 2 years ago, but have been concentrating on interior renovations until now, and like I said, time flies, can’t believe it’s been 2 years already!). (You can read more about some of this summer’s gardening projects here)

I’ve had a lot of interest in the deer proofing fence we installed in our backyard to keep our newly planted fruit trees safe from deer. I’m thrilled to say, yes, it has totally worked. We have not had any deer find their way into our backyard since we installed the fence. (Although I can’t say for sure any have tried to come back, since the one time, prior to the fence install, when they ate a bunch of stuff and left tell-tale prints in the yard… but if they have, they haven’t succeeded, so I’m going to go with it’s a winner for a deer-proof barrier.)

This is a post to ‘prime the pump’ and give you notice: START WATCHING YOUR INBOX! New posts are on their way. I plan to regularly publish a new post on Monday mornings, with a few thrown in mid-week, as time allows.

I have tons to share with you too… so much to show you of our whole house renovation, like how I turn our Mid-Century into a Colonial Revival Cottage. (HERE is where you can read all the posts I’ve written about this renovation so far)

Hey, here’s your chance… if there is anything in particular you’d like me to write about, or show you in regards to a project or room in our house, or a particular design/decorating question you have, speak up! It takes a few weeks to complete a post, but I’d love to customize one for you!!

So to kick it off, next Monday, October 7th, I thought it’d be fun to start off with a GIVEAWAY! I’m going to share with you a project I recently completed and give you a chance to sign up for a chance to win your own product, (you’ll have to check in on Monday to see just what that product is) to complete your own fun project.

Happy October! See you next week!!

Here are more posts about me and why I write this DIY and decorating blog:

    It’s good to hear from you again. Landscaping has occupied much of our time as well this past summer. I’m looking forward to more posts! 😉
