Favorite Exfoliating Facial Wash

I am sure by now you have probably heard about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I have found a couple things while searching, mostly a lot of online window shopping.. Lol.

However, I thought I would share that my favorite exfoliating facial wash is in the sale.
I had actually ran out of it so it was pretty much perfect timing that I ran across it
while looking at the sale.




This set has a Large 32 oz bottle with a pump, (this size lasts me a long time)
as well as a 8 oz size, and a small bottle of purity as well.
(which is also a fave of mine)

Update on Galvanized Tub Planter and Around the Yard


As I was watering this morning I took my camera outside, and got a few photo's
from around the yard.

I thought I would share an update on just how well my Galvanized Tub Turned Planter is doing.

It is a thing of beauty!

Here is a reminder of where it started:

Kitchen Update - Painting my kitchen cabinets

Painting my Kitchen Cabinets..

This is something I have been going back and forth on for quite a while..
and probably even more so after installing a fun faux barnwood backsplash in my
kitchen. (which we are so happy with!) 

(You can see my backsplash post here:Faux Barnwood Backsplash)



After a lot of searching online, looking at before and after photo's of other peoples kitchens,
researching painting methods for kitchen cabinets what products others have used with success
and so on..  I finally made the decision that I really wanted to paint them white.


DIY Light Posts with another purpose

I have done a lot of different projects in the yard this year,
and one of the projects on my list was planting a row of boxwood's along
the driveway that is near one side of our house.



I quickly realized that I still need to be able to drag a water hose past this area
for all of our plants and newly planted tree's on this side of the yard,
and since the boxwood are along the edge of the driveway
the hose would easily end up right against them.. so I needed to come up
with something to keep the hose off all of my new boxwood.
