Bunnies Everywhere

I guess you might say that here at Sweetwater the decor "hopping down the bunny trail"!
In the spirit of minimalism, our Easter decor is just all about the bunnies.

The front hall table has this great rabbit print.
The painting is called "Young Hare" and it was painted by Albrecht Durer in 1502.
I have always loved this print, so it was a happy day when I found this cast iron door stop to match.

Thrifty Craft Room Flooring

We have lived here at Sweetwater for 23 years!
We still refer to this as our "new" house even though we have lived here longer than any other house....go figure!
After we moved in, it took about three years for Mr. S to finish off the lower level!
One part of the project was the creation of my dream craft room.


Imagine being able to start from bare concrete walls and floors and turn it into the best space ever!






We were on a pretty tight budget....so choosing a flooring option was kind of a daunting task.
The floor needed to be really really tough!
It needed to be easy to care for.
It needed to be pretty!
It really needed to be CHEAP!

Wheat Grass Time!

Welcome March!  
Did you know that March 1st is the beginning of meteorological Spring?
Ahhh....Spring!
In Minnesota, we know that "real" Spring probably won't happen until May!
For heaven's sake, Mr. S still has his fish house out on the frozen lake up north!

But that doesn't mean I can't have some touches of the season around the house!

That means it is time to grow some Wheat Grass!
