We are in for some chillier temperatures this coming week, so I decided it was time to start winterizing the chicken coop. I always have a hard time saying goodbye to the warm weather.

Eggs supply dwindles and even our most social of chickens would prefer to not be handled as much. But, it doesn’t mean that fall can’t be…

I love living by the sea and keeping gardens, but living in New England I find my warm days drifting away. One of my favorite things to do on crisp fall days is to collect beautiful inspirational things from the gardens and make wreaths, like this acorn one. This past spring, we planted almost thirty…

Yesterday was so hectic for me.  I’ve been getting up so early for my son to catch the bus each and every morning. Yes, I’m that early bird, catching the worm everyday at 5:30 am.  I worked for a few hours and then ran tons of errands, went food shopping, played taxi driver for the…

We spend as much time as we can outside, until finally the weather becomes raw, cold, and snowy. The acorns are abundant right now and the kids and I always love to collect a few to turn into crafts. As we gathered the acorns, we were plopping them into a found Mason jar in the…

  This week, I went out on assignment for HGTV Gardens. My assignment was to capture a fall Cape Cod garden in all of its fall glory. Immediately, my friend, C.L. Fornari, came to mind. I reached out to to her and she graciously invited me to come and tour her private home gardens with her.Read…
