Fall gives me the same boost of cleaning and organizing that spring provides.  One of the items on my to-do list is going through photo storage (computer, phone and random photographs that end up in a drawer or box).

So, as promised…my renewal of landscape business (since retirement) has been busy.  I’ve not taken as many photographs as I thought I would.  Some of my lapses are due to being tired after the install.  So, here’s a yard that I’m especially happy with.  

This yard had good bones but was in need of some pretty.

That’s my update on Bunch Garden Design.

We also moved into a new (to us) home, a rental, and I shared a few of the pictures of the living room and dining room, with the promise of more images of other rooms in the home.  So here’s our guest room.  The fun thing about the little writing desk in the second image is that it was used as an end table in the last 2 houses.  Our home of 35 years and the first rental we took after the move.  In this house, I was worried I’d have to donate it due to lack of space…


Guest Room

…but as it turns out the little table fit well under the window in the guest room and the small French chair fit as if it was meant to be paired with the table.


I absolutely love this hanging rod for the picture gallery. Heather Chadduck Elements of Style (below)

I discovered a new (to me) designer that I love…Maine House Interiors, Amy Spargo

So that’s it, my friends.  Now that the heat has cooled a tiny bit, I’m going to have more energy.  I hope you’re enjoying every single tiny bit of summer left in your neck of the woods.  I’m always more than ready for autumn this time of year.  I’m tired of summer food and ready to bake a few sweets and maybe a casserole or two.  Until next time.
