I went to a home warehouse type place yesterday called Garden Ridge.They had some really cute stuff there for the outside and in!!! I get so frustrated sometimes with not planning on staying, really cute things you can do.

I really like in the style guide, painting a design/pattern on the faces of the stairway. As I'm renting soon most likely (argh) I won't do anything fancy but maybe something like that.

Slowly turning the backyard into more of an additional living space. Once warm weather comes, it's my primary living space. Next up: new herb-scaping in the front, more feeders, then new cushions for the patio furniture. Maybe some new outdoor lighting too...

Some renters can be great but a lot of them expect the Ritz and leave it looking like an outback toilet!!!

I'm doing some hardscapes and things to make the house look better for renting or selling, but I am not doing much planting. I planted some things when I lived at my last house I converted to a rental, and when I came back after the renters were there for a while everything was either dead or overgrown.

There is a big difference when you're not staying. Like "It would be really cool to do xyz" then you're like, well no, I'm leaving...

This was going to be the year I started working on my landscaping and overall outdoor decorating but now that I will be moving in a few months there is no point. It will have to wait a few years until I come back.
