Now that summer is here in full force, why not get outside and play some games. Lawn games to be exact. I found a few great ideas for diy lawn games that you can easily create yourself. And better yet they don’t take up too much space, so they’re perfect for small outdoor spaces.
The Roll Out Vegetable Garden designed by Chris Chapman is an all in one simple vegetable garden or herb garden. It was created with busy families in mind, who don’t have hours to spend on planting and growing a vegetable garden.
The Mosser, as it’s called by its creators Jennica Johnstone and Noah Atkinson is a mini ultra cool modern terrarium that you can place just about anywhere. Continue reading…
We recently met the family at Crandon Park Beach in Key Biscayne. We though it might be full so we got there a little early and visited the old Crandon Park zoo, located on the south side of the beach parking lot. It’s been around since the 1940′s and used to be quite an attraction from what I heard. It was even one of the top 25 zoo’s in the country at one point. Continue reading…
I saw this diy corner patio cabana project recently at one of the link parties that I join in on and thought it was such a great idea. As well as such an inviting space. It goes to show that you don’t need a huge backyard space to create an oasis for yourself.
I was browsing through last Sunday’s newspaper when I ran across the JCP catalogue. I almost put it aside like I usually do. I’ve never really been a big fan of JC Penney, but the catalogue has gotten more appealing since the stores recent image revamp. Continue reading…
The most wonderful part of the seasonal transition from winter to spring, is the fact you can once again clear up your garden, and prepare it for the summer ahead. Generally we all know the basics when clearing up after a long winter; trim the hedges and grass, sweep the patio etc. Continue reading…
Summer’s approaching and lots of grilling/outdoor cooking will likely be on your to-do list. And so will having to go back and forth between the indoor kitchen and the outdoor grill. Instead, why not make yourself an outdoor kitchen? You can have everything you need in one spot. Do all your prep work and cooking in place.
Here’s a little wordless Wednesday treat for you. My dad recently went to a park and snapped some photos of a squirrel. Very friendly little guy, even came up to him.
I’m not sure what I like most about this project. The actual project itself or the amazing photos. They actually make toilet paper rolls look really good.
Spring is in the air and now’s the time to start planting those seeds. Instead of using conventional pots why not make your own eco-friendly seed starting pots? They are easy to make, won’t cost you a thing and best of all you’ll be helping out the environment. Continue reading…

You see this hummingbird feeder, want to know where to buy it? Well you can’t, it’s actually homemade. It was made as an earth day project by Nicole over at Shabby Beach Nest.
I found these two herb garden projects and just had to share. First up is this really pretty wall mounted mason jar herb garden by Claire over at Camille Styles.
For Earth Day this year I wanted to create something that was useful and involved recycling. So I decided on a hanging herb garden. I needed a new batch of herbs, the only survivor from the last time I planted herbs was a couple of types of basil. Everything else either died with the heat or got eaten alive by bugs.
Nothing screams relaxation more than hanging on your front porch. Even if it needs a little help, you can easily make your front porch more inviting with just a few small changes or enhancements.
Composting is easy and fun, yet most people don’t it. They say it takes up too much space, it’s a hassle or the compost bins are just too expensive. Well here’s my answer to that; if you have space for a garbage can you can compost, all you have to do is throw stuff in and move it around once a week or so, and you can make your own compost bin for basically the cost of a new garbage can.
