How Does Your Garden Grow?

Hay Bale Gardening......have you guys ever heard of it?  I had heard the term once or twice, but really wasn't familiar with it until the Mister decided to try a small garden of his own using this simple process.  


Small Styled Spaces and Organization

Not everyone has the luxury of living in a large space, but regardless of the size of your home, you can live more efficiently by making wise use of every area and keeping things neat and organized.

During the month of June, Kate Keesee (@salvedior on Instagram) organized a Small Styled Spaces and a Small Styled Organization board on her Pinterest.  A group of us had collaborated with her before for a couple of summer series boards, (you can find those on her Pinterest also), so when she asked me to contribute to these boards as well, I was excited to do so!

Explore Georgia: Warm Springs



After a recent hike on Pine Mountain, we found the cutest little cafe in Warm Springs, Georgia to grab a bite of lunch, Lightnin' Bugs Bakery & Cafe.  I had driven through Warm Springs once a long time ago, and fell in love with the character of the little town full of history and charm. I promised myself that one day I'd make it back to this little town to do a little exploring and was so glad I finally did.


Back Porch Project: Before and After

Well, if you're on Instagram, it's old news that the Mister and I screened in our back porch recently.  It's something we've talked about doing for a few years and finally got around to actually doing it.  I was determined to get it done before the huge South Georgia mosquitoes made their debut this year. I took a few photos of the process to show you what a huge difference it made.  I now have an outdoor room and we are loving it!


Day hiking with Osprey

In preparation for our next section hike on the Appalachian Trail, my guys and I recently went to Pine Mountain for another day hike.  The Mister and I had been before, but this was Dillan's first trip there.  Of course, there are numerous trails to hike in that area, so it was a new adventure for all of us.


The perfect summertime dessert: Blackberry Cobbler

I can't think of a better way to start the summer season than with a fresh, homemade blackberry cobbler. I was blessed enough to find my grandmother's handwritten recipes years after she passed away, and among them was the easy recipe for her cobbler.  Her recipe calls for peaches or apples, but I've experimented over the years and blackberries and strawberries make this dish just as yummy!


Prints by Pink Forest Cafe

I was recently scrolling through Instagram and ran across the cutest prints by Pink Forest Cafe.  I have a fascination with pastel colors and cute little animal prints, and boy do they have them!

After I complimented them on their awesome work, they sweetly offered to collaborate with me and asked me to pick out several of my favorites for them to send me.

Let me tell you, that was a difficult thing to do because they have so many beautiful products to choose from!  I knew I had to have one of the cute little animal prints, but I also love the dream catchers!  Something about these designs and the sweet little flowers reminds me of the "Wildwood".  She was even able to customize the wording for me and created one for my blog name.

I can't wait to get them in frames and hang them!  I'm sure they'll look awesome with my white office furniture!

So if you're needing some fun, unique prints, you should definitely head on over to their site and check them out.  You can also follow them on Instagram at this link or on Facebook.
