I bought a thing. I did a thing.

As a plant seller on FB Marketplace, I have not been much of a buyer until recently. I have picked up a couple of cool things during Quarantine. Inexpensive items but nice additions for our home. The added bonus: thrifting is better for the environment! I saw this cute round table for $25. Low investment... Continue Reading →

just a tweak

We have the world's smallest hall bathroom. When my family came to visit us last year I told them to be sure to use the bathroom on the airplane before they got off because it's the biggest bathroom they'd see in the next week.The truth is though, it's perfectly okay for us.
