Got Compost?

Composter by Presto Company

After feeling guilty for tossing kitchen and yard waste, I've decided to start composting! I looked for a composter for a while before deciding on one sold through Washtenaw County for the low price of $12!

The bin, produced by Presto Company, was simple to put together and isn't an eye sore in my yard. Now those tea bags, coffee grounds, and the TONS of leaves in my yard will be put to good use. Now, I've just got to be patient and wait for nature to take its course....

Before & After

I finally got an opportunity to paint my buffet! Thank you to everyone that voted on color options. As you see, I decided to go with International Orange in honor of my love for San Francisco. I LOVE how it turned out!

More pics of LaNa!

I'm shopping for a tree or bush to go in the front (to the right looking from the street). I'm thinking that a Mock Orange may be perfect!

A bunch of you have been asking for more pics of the, here are some of the front yard. Everyday there seems to be more flowers sprouting. The previous owner loved to work in the yard and it shows - lots of bulbs!! More pics of the rest of the house to come....

What's that in my garden!?

It's amazing what finds I come across now that the snow has melted! Seems the previous owner LOVED gnomes and various yard art.

A BIG thank you... my dad and friend Marty. Between the three of us we have transformed my one-and-only bathroom into a spa-like retreat! I'll post some before and after pics when the finishing touches are all said and done.
