  This year I tried something different and planted caladium bulbs from Van Zyverden, Inc. at Walmart in some of the shadier areas of my backyard.  Normally, I switch out annuals in the spring and fall (and still do some of that), but honestly, it gets costly and cumbersome each year.  I decided to give […]

Renovating this little 1940s cottage has been so rewarding. Now that I’m at the finish line, it’s time to start sharing some of the amazing after images and spaces.  When I started this renovation project in Minden, Louisiana back in the fall of 2019, I intended for it to be a flip. The plan was […]

As I was wrapping up my renovation in 2017, I kept seeing woven wood shades all over social media and knew in a heartbeat I wanted some for the huge bank of front windows across my main living area.  I called my neighbor, Leslie Rainer with Leslie Rainer Designs, and she helped me pick out […]
