Try This: Giant Jenga


With fall right around the corner, I’ve been looking for small ways to make the most of this beautiful season. And although outdoor games are typically associated with summer sun and impromptu cookouts, I can’t imagine wasting this crisp, cool weather indoors. Enter Giant Jenga – a genius (and oh so easy) idea for carefree entertaining, no matter the season.

4 Birdhouses For Springtime

BIRDHOUSESConfession time: I’ve never owned a birdhouse. (I don’t know what’s wrong with me, either.) It wasn’t until I visited a friend’s cabin and awoke to a most glorious chorus of birds chirping outside my window that I realized – Hey! Why don’t the birds ever sing at my house? Answer: You get what you give.

So this spring, I’m giving those sweet chickadees a home. Naturally, I’m on the hunt for a smart, stylish option that won’t break the bank – and lucky for you, I’ve been successful! Here are four birdhouse options – all under $100 – I’d love to add to my own nest:

Why Don’t You…?

… enjoy a hammock inside your home?

If you live in a seasonal area, it’s a shame that hammocks can only be enjoyed for a few months out of the year. So why not bring the outdoors in and install your favorite outdoor swing in a forgotten corner of your living room?

The look is perfectly Bohemian, creating a relaxing environment in almost any space. How lovely would it be to curl up and read your favorite novel in the comfort of your own home – sans those pesky mosquitoes?

Happy swinging!

Fancy a tub time?!

Who says we can't indulge in a little tub time in the middle of the day, right? Pure dreaminess to the umpth degree… luxury to the max. Is it hard to believe there are so many options out there? Probably not. But personally I would love for it to be an everyday luxury. Or maybe a once-a-week luxury? For some reason, I'm not much of a tub person unless I'm vacationing somewhere far far away. That will truly be the time for me to completely decompress, let go of the workload, the computer, and yes, the cell phone. But, and I'm going to do an all caps BUT here, if any one of these gorgeous baths, whether indoor or outdoor belongs to me, you betcha I will be tubbing all the time, LOL! I am not going to keep rambling on and on here, because there are some seriously awe-inspiring baths below for you to feast your eyes on… enjoy!
