All fenced in…

  1. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    I can just picture ya’ll scampering around this morning on your permit-spree!
    Keep us (fence) posted! 😉

  2. Sweet Nothings says:

    call me old fashioned, it is still my dream to have a home with a white picket fence!

  3. Blueprint Bliss says:

    It will be so nice to have the fence up! Another project to mark off the list!

  4. rightbank says:

    That’s some morning you had! I’m looking forward to seeing the fence. You are getting so much done at your place!

  5. LindsB says:

    I hope the rest of your day goes without a hitch! I cant wait to see your new fence, I’m sure your dogs can’t wait either.

    Have a good rest of the day 🙂

  6. The Beauty File says:

    These pics remind me of the town of Oyster Bay…which always reminds me of Cape Cod! Good luck with the fence…I love the idea of my dog being outside with me…we’re doing a deck this year!

  7. GracefulElegance says:

    Ahh – I feel your pain. Municple permits are the worst!!

  8. Blair says:

    And you have done all of that today!? Wow. Well good work, very good work. I have a fenced in yard for my dogs and it is heaven–well worth the hassle:)

    Also, tell you husband I am sorry:) My brother gets mad at me all the time for posting things that he can’t afford for his girlfriend.

    Now you really will be a “desperate housewife” with that charming fence! Just teasin ya….I love how a fence adds so much “curb appeal!”

  10. Emily says:

    I am so into fences right now. I used to not like the idea of being all fenced in but now it just seems so darn cozy as your images attest to. Can’t wait to see pictures of yours!

    Well everyone I survived. The fence crew just left due to heavy rain! They have to come back next week to finish it, but the dogs behaved better than expected. They went on an additional walk in the afternoon and come home sleepy so all has been quiet!

  12. Sarah Danielle: Jeune Marie says:

    Oh my goodness Camilla!! Glad you got your permit!! Sounds like you had a hectic morning!! LOL

  13. The Lil Bee says:

    One of the main things I loved about our house when we first saw it was the fenced-in backyard. Our dogs LOVE it and it’s so easy for us. I’m glad it all worked out for you guys…isn’t homeownership such a mystery?!

    BTW…I am on the fence (er…no pun intended!) about going to Doms tomorrow. I would love to, but living outside of the city now makes it an hour trip in…and I’m thinking 8am is the latest you can arrive, right? I don’t know…the whole being-tired-and-constantly-having-to-pee thing seems to be holding me back these days! But PROMISE you’ll take lots of photos, k?!

    Have fun!!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
