A long pendant necklace can make you look taller and leaner. Keep reading to learn a few more tips for using accessories to fool the eye.

This week, I’ve added more hostas, ferns, and coral bells. My goal is to create an entry shade garden that is welcoming and interesting but one that returns every year. Low maintenance is my master plan for gardening and all other areas of my life.
It has been so rewarding to work in my tiny plots of ground. I hope you get to do something creative this weekend.
