Wallpaper . . . yes, that's right, wallpaper

We hung wallpaper. That is not something I ever thought we would do, but this stuff was too cool to pass up and totally adds a ton of character to the house. It took some time and teamwork, but we finished it in about one full day (started on a Friday night and woke up Saturday and finished). The paper is from Ferm Living. Enjoy.

This year I decided to add some perennials to the small plot against the back of the house. This space has gone through a couple changes since we moved in. First I weeded what was there when we moved in, then I decided to make it a bigger plot and plant some bulbs and now I've added these perennials. Hopefully they will make it through the winter like they should and come back fuller next year.


The pics below are squash, carrots and sugar snap peas from this years veggie garden. I also grew lettuce, but it has all either been eaten or died. I planted a ton of it and we couldn't keep up with eating it all. I've still got another couple squash coming and hopefully some cherry and pear tomatoes. We'll see if the weather can stay nice enough for them to finish ripening on the vine.
