• Garage Organization and Declutter

    garage organization and declutter

    Today I am sharing our garage organization and declutter method.  Organizing doesn’t have to be hard! When we moved into our new fixer upper we dumped everything into our garage.  There was no organizing!  I am talking a huge pile of random stuff dumped in the middle of the garage.  After a few weeks of tripping and falling over things I decided I had to get organized. I love organizing and finding a place for every item in my house.  Call me weird, but I get joy out of it.  I believe anyone can be organized it just takes a little time to get set up.  Once you have a…

  • Drought Tolerant Landscape

    Drought Tolerant Landscape

    Today I am sharing our drought tolerant landscape design.  Becoming drought tolerant is easier than it seems.  When we first moved into our 1950’s fixer upper the first thing I noticed was the dead grass.  Living in sunny southern California I know the only way to go is with a drought tolerant landscape.  At first I wasn’t sure where to start.  We have a small section in front of our front window, so I decided to start small. I found a photo on Pinterest of some black pots sitting on white rock. I quickly decided that I wanted to emulate this photo for our front yard.  It seemed simple enough…
