This bench really caught me eye. I had to make it!

Followed the plans except for the slight modifications I did. Instead of using 2x2's for the frame I used 1x2 poplar. I just kept adding frame pieces until I reached my desired width. Thanks for the plans!... Read More

Free DIY Furniture Plans / How to Build a Canopy Crib

I hope you all had such a Happy Easter! We are officially back from our vacation and I can't wait to share some of the details with you all. I hoped it would be relaxing and allow me to recover a bit more from this nagging infection, and I would say it absolutely did help a bit. But let's be real, relaxing is the opposite of what a vacation with kiddos is all about. My two littles took misbehaving to a whole new level, so naturally I am thinking about an easier time when they were still babies and sleeping like angels in cribs, and not yet talking.... Our first crib plan has been such a hit that we thought we would expand the line and add some other fabulous options to it... Read More

Open Garden in the Sacramento Old City Cemetery

Open Garden in the Sacramento Old City Cemetery

The gardens of the Historic City Cemetery will be in full bloom during our annual Open Garden. The fragrance of the old roses of the award-winning Historic Rose Garden will fill the air as 500 roses clamber up trees, cover archways and bloom on big shrubs in this unique 19th century setting.  Perennial and native plant gardens will also be featured. The day begins with a sale of rare heritage rose plants and continues with free tours of the gardens and cemetery, a Silent Auction, and sales of rose merchandise.

The cemetery is located at 1000 Broadway, Sacramento. Free parking is available in the lot at 10th & Broadway, across the street from the 10th Street entrance.  Tours are free; however, donations and proceeds will benefit cemetery preservation projects.
