A Farmhouse Party Fit for a Pig

A Farmhouse Party Fit for a Pig

My sweet little girl turned 4 years old this week– cue the cliches “time flies by” and “they grow up so fast,”– and she requested a party in our backyard that included… Mr. Smee and Tinkerbell.  (I mean let’s be honest… what girl turning 4 wouldn’t want to have real live piglets at her birthday...

Green Walls and a Jacked Up Floor

Good evening everyone!  I hope you’re all having a great week so far!  Without further ado, here is what the walls look like now that they are a beautiful shade of Benjamin Moore’s Colonial Verdigris!

Retaining Wall! – Part 4

Alright, the time has come to share the retaining wall in all its glory! Here are some progress pictures that we snapped as the masons were working. I feel like it really is a work of art.  The two men took their time and their attention to detail shows. The new wall they’re working on...

Retaining Wall! – Part 3

CHECK. OUT. THIS. WALL. Y’ALL. I love love love love how this ended up!!!  It protects my beloved boxwoods from eroding, it delineates the yard from the gravel so we won’t have mulch or grass spilling into the driveway, and it really adds some class (I think) to the whole driveway and therefore property overall.  Something...

Retaining Wall! – Part 2

Hello everyone!  I hope you’re all having a good week.  Charlottesville weather has been so absurd lately… the weather forecast changes minute by minute on sunshine/ thunderstorms/ sprinkles.  We’re getting a LOT of thunderstorms in our neck of the woods and it’s been far from fun, but I know we had a dry winter and...

Happy Memorial Day Y’all! Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend. As promised, here are some photos of the shelter David built for Tinkerbell and Mr. Smee.

Making a Pig Fence

Ahhhh! The piglets are seriously the cutest things ever! I love them, and I have definitely spent way more time watching them than I should have/ imagined I would! I wanted to take a minute and backtrack to share how David and I put in their pig fence. First of all we had to decide...
