Table Shopping

Table Shopping

I’m in the market for a table for my patio. As soon as the weather warms and dries, I’ve just got to finish staining the pergola (black) and then it will be ready for styling and furniture. I’ve got four amazing vintage dumpster diving chairs that are being re-wrapped and will basically look just like…

Getting an Early Start  – Growing Turmeric, Ginger, Rosemary & Sage

Getting an Early Start – Growing Turmeric, Ginger, Rosemary & Sage

Are you an early spring indoor seed starter? I am not. Not that I wouldn’t like to be, but frankly I just don’t have the patience for the shenanigans I have to go through to do it successfully. I always get leggy, cat chewed, weaklings that seem highly un-worth the fact that I literally have…

The Nearly Done Office (with the help of a Modernica planter)

The Nearly Done Office (with the help of a Modernica planter)

Slowly but surely my new office is taking shape. The hardest part for me is always the finishing touches. I still need to find, load-up and style the bookshelves, sort through a pile of paper that needs to be filed in my less than adequate system (dread!!), recover the sofa, and hang some more pictures. I…

A Shamrock (Oxalis) Rainbow

A Shamrock (Oxalis) Rainbow

I’m finding the ever- increasing variety of oxalis  (commonly called Shamrocks or Wood Sorrel) available to gardeners very inspiring. In the last decade (or so) it seems like the color and shape choices have exploded – there is – literally – a whole rainbow of elegant and interesting options.    So, in honor of all…

I make little resolutions all the time so especially at the New Year I try to remind myself of those things I’ve been working towards since forever. I have this recurring art buying resolution theme that I annoyingly have struggled to follow through with. I mean its like shopping, right? why do I have such a…

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

A Studio ‘g’ Holiday Shopping List

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas. You know the feeling of not really wanting anything other than warmth, good company, good food, and a healthy, happy family. Well, I am having those feelings this holiday season but there are…

Cozy Lights for the New Patio

Cozy Lights for the New Patio

It feels so good to have the pergola mostly finished (we still have to stain it but we’ve relented…that just isn’t going to happen until spring).  We had a little gathering of friends and hastily put up some lights so that we could see at night and so that we had a little ambiance. Without…

Landscape Letters by Charles Joseph Hullmandel

Landscape Letters by Charles Joseph Hullmandel

Yes! – I’d frame that.  I find the ‘G’ particularly nice and it reminds me of Colorado history and some of my favorite Laura Ingalls Wilder stories.  I’m also partial to the H – (I love a good bridge) and the W (maybe my parents would like that — it is the first letter of…

Before & After: April’s Bean Tunnel

Before & After: April’s Bean Tunnel

I found this really sweet bean tunnel over the winter and I’ve been dying to make one of my own ever since! April from Wahsega Valley Farm has an incredible backyard vegetable garden, and as soon as I saw this bare garden structure, I knew it would be a even cooler once the vines started to…

IMHO: The Best Raised Garden Beds

IMHO: The Best Raised Garden Beds

I thought I would revisit an old post today.  Originally written back in 2008 when I first started this blog – I had the year before bought and installed raised beds from from The Farmstead.  I was a big fan then and I am still a big fan now.  I am finally able to start to…
