Hello Friends,

I’m so happy you’ve stopped by! In case you’ve been following along with my One Room Challenge Spring 2020 weekly progress, this week I’ll be sharing Week 3 and Week 4 together because…well, sometimes things come up (ahem, client projects) that need attention.

Thankfully, once I was able to resume with our Operation Outdoor Oasis Refresh, I was able to knock out most of my weekly to-do list for both weeks within a few days. I wasn’t able to complete three items on the list – determining the outdoor dining tablescape design; resource list; and finalizing patio plant selections – but I do plan on taking of those next week, Week 5.

Are You New to My Site?

In case you’re new to my site, here’s links to Week 1 and Week 2, where I shared before photos, need for the update, my design concept, and more.

New Outdoor Area Rug is Truman Approved!


Items are beginning to trickle in and one of the items I received this week is our new outdoor area rug. I’m loving the beautiful, vibrant turquoise/teal color. And apparently, Truman loves it too because he’s been laying on it every time he goes outside!
