    February 11, 2015DishinandDishes

    And so it begins…. It’s time for planting! Last weekend, I spent some time planting some (mostly) cool weather plants in the greenhouse. It caused me to reflect on what I’ve learned this year. #1  I didn’t plant early enough last year.  Since we put the greenhouse in in April, I didn’t get my cool…

  • DIY Coffee Table Remake

    September 5, 2011DishinandDishes

    It always amazes me the thing that people throw away. We picked this coffee table up at a local thrift store. The stained color was just…a little too orange for our taste or our furniture.  We have a lot of chocolate brown in our living room and it just didn’t seem to work.  However, it…
