Aiming to keep my dirt-dwelling life simple, special and sweet


The home makeover shows make me want to go out and (1) buy on-sale fabric for homemade curtains, (2) go to the dump and ask if they have any broken marble for a new countertop, and (3) rent a rototiller for my backyard, creating gardens with flowering plants which circle a flagstone patio where a blue birdbath sits.

Thanks, HGTV, for making me feel the need to spend even more money, but I will defeat you. At least today. I'm taking one. day. at. a. time.

This is my current backyard

This is what HGTV makes me want to have (except with water for birds)
