Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without. ~ Boyd K. Packer

When we bought this little summerhouse, there was this old picnictable standing in the garden. My first impulse was: ” We can throw that one out right away:” But what can I say…it grew on me. And then we kept on using it, as…

As a rule of thumb, I would say the smaller the pond, the more belligerent the fish. ~ Craig Brown

A few weeks ago, I made this post about the mini-pond I set up in our little wild garden. Promising an update. So here it is! The pond is thriving! The swimming water plants didnt make it, but the ones under water, the gras…

Let’s get cozy

The bedroom is still in progress, but Tuesday we finally bought proper mattresses. It only took us about a year 😊 Today I fixed one of the walls. I hung one of the mirrors there that we found in the house. After finding a…
