Before & After: Sherry and John’s Sweet Hangout

I’ve mentioned before how much I love rooms that feel like they’re an extension of the landscape, and today I found one that I am pretty excited about. I used to follow Young House Love back when Sherry and John were remodeling their first house, and I couldn’t wait to do that kind of stuff to my own house. Well, I kind of fell off the DIY weekend warrior bandwagon when I realized that I work on the weekends and when I do have a weekend off, it seems that I’m more of a weekend wanderer than a weekend warrior. But anyway back to the space…here is where they are with it now:

They ripped out the windows and ceiling and did a few other things as well, turning it into one huge lounge space. It looks like it would be a pretty great house to have a party at, don’t you think?

Garden Incense

My tiny little local General Store has a knack for getting some interesting products sometimes.  Today when I stopped for a coffee, I discovered Amazon Lights — which smelled amazing.   The scent is a combination of Andiroba oil, citronella, rosemary and Thyme. What is Andiroba oil?   I wondered too.   It is the oil is extracted…

Xavier Nicod Antiquities Garden – South of France

Sometimes of the most amazing gardens aren’t around homes, or hotels, palaces or the like, but rather part of a shop.   In this case, an antique shop in the Isle sur la Sorgue in the South of France.  Xavier Nicod‘s website shares more images of this beautiful garden filled with his antique shop treasures,  and…
