5 things: cute gardening accessories

Gardening is seriously my favourite. And what’s better than cute gardening accessories? The answer: not much. Here are 5 things I’d love to have in my gardenΒ right now: Ingrid Starnes Bar Soap – $19.95 (buy it online from Alex & Corban) Made with organic goat’s milk, shea butter and organic manuka honey this would be…

Rosemary and Lemon Sugar Scrub

You’ve all been there. You’ve had a great day out in the garden, and then you take off your gloves (if you wear them…) and somehow the dirt and smell from the soil and compost has made its way to your hands. The worst is the compost smell! And that really likes to linger. So…

Hanging Pictures with Bulldog Clips

Our home office is pretty much our “man cave” in our house. My husband is freelancing at the moment, so the home office is pretty much just his domain. Over the past few years, he has collected different flash prints that he didn’t want framed or damaged with pins, but he wanted hung. So we…

My "Making Use of a Small Space" Garden

You’re not always going to be able to live at a house that has land for you to establish your vegetable garden presence. So sometimes you just have to get creative, and use whatever space you can. Although I do have space for a vegetable garden, I do also have my patio/kitchen garden that I…

Organizing Your Linen Closet

I really don’t like folding washing. But its something that we all have to do! One of the worst things about folding washing, is folding the fitted sheet for my bed! I can just never seem to get it looking tidy! And this means that my linen cupboard looks messy! Does this look familiar?? So…

Its Christmas time in the city – November 30 2012

This may not be directly related to gardening, but kinda! Its to do with trees!! For the first time in my entire life, I was going to get a real live Christmas tree! As we live in a little house, we needed a little tree, so the pre cut trees were too big for what…
