We’re glad you’re here! We’re all about yard and garden diy projects, crafts and inspiration. Yes, that’s me in the picture to the left, with my feline muse, Cosmo. In the background is one of my favorite paintings (actually it’s more of a “mixed media” piece with the addition of sequins.)

But mostly, the backyard is my canvas. If you love the outdoors, you’ve come to the right place.  It lends to many opportunities for art and design – have you seen elaborately constructed plant boxes, mosaic stone planters, and glass birdbaths, you know what I mean!

Take a look around and see what you can find…and while you’re at it, why not take a little tour?
