A Look Back at 3 Earth Day Worthy Projects.

As Earth Day is being celebrated today, I thought it a great idea to look back at 3 of my projects that support the tenets of Earth Day; reuse/recycle/save the planet. Above is the piece I saved a few years ago.

This is what it looked like before. You can read all about the transformation HERE.

A fave is the closet turned office. Talk about an efficient use of an already existing space!

There are so many other projects that could be highlighted here as I am always reusing and repurposing. I didn't even mention planting! You know I love my plants!  I bought some vegetables to start the vegetable garden, so that will be happening this weekend. What are your plans?  Happy Earth Day and have a great weekend! xx

Singita Lebombo Lodge in South Africa.

relaxing with a view outdoor

Located in Africa in the central part of Kruger National Park, which in turn is nestled between the Limpopo and Mpumalanga provinces of South Africa, Singita Lebombo Lodge is paradise especially for the nature lover. Traveling to Africa is high on my wish list and it would be amazing to stay here...

10 Beautiful Walnut Kitchens.

The other day, I posted my kitchen on Instagram and feared I might have been the only one left online with a kitchen that has walnut cabinets. I was pleasantly surprised when others chimed in that they too have walnut kitchens and that they too LOVE their kitchens with their walnut cabinets. We're showing off our walnut side today...
