sweet music for the backyard


This past year, I’ve spent a whole lot of time in the garden and enjoying the perks of being outdoors, in general.


My goal of growing lots of pretty flowers for cutting has really kept me busy, and I want to let you in on one of my favorite little secrets…


It’s this amazing set of iLIVE indoor-outdoor bluetooth speakers that I just sync with my smart phone playlist from Spotify. 

Now I get 360° full-bodied sound while I’m in the garden enjoying the fresh air and the company of the adorable birds and butterflies we’ve had this year.


These iLIVE Bluetooth speakers have been a game changer for me. They include removable stakes, so you can strategically place your music outdoors for everyday enjoyment or your next backyard party.


In fact, they’d also be perfect for a picnic, a beach day or camping.


They’re durable and waterproof so you can keep the party going, wherever you take it. 

So perfect for a pool party!

This pair of speakers even has an option to play music individually or together in Party Plus Mode. I also use them indoors at my desk or in the kitchen while I'm cooking. 


I love how when out in sun they are solar power charged and can just keep playing all day longThese amazing outdoor speakers definitely make my outdoor time much more enjoyable. 

And by the way, I have a fun 80's playlist that really gets me moving in the garden!

You can check out these exact iLIVE Speakers HERE, but they're also available at Macy's and Walmart. And wouldn't these also make a great Christmas gift?

the queen of sunflowers

The fall issue of Country Home really has me feeling the autumn season inching its way closer and closer. And the standout in the whole magazine is this article featuring my Instagram pal and stylist extraordinaire Karin Lidbeck-Brent.


She actually grew ALL of these gorgeous sunflowers from seed in 2019 and then proceeded to style them in the most beautiful ways!


For all the details on how this all came to fruition, you’ve got to pick up a copy of Country Home. I’m just here to share all these lovely snapshots with you today.  


Karin's styling prowess is legendary, and I was a huge fan of hers before I even knew it.


Here are some of the iconic images I fell in love with on Pinterest, back in the day. Most of them appeared in Better Homes & Gardens Magazine.


Now isn’t your day just a little bit brighter seeing these fantastic seasonal images? I’m off to create some of my own vignettes for a few styling projects I have lined up.


Of course, Karin is the Queen, and I can only aspire to create images as beautiful as her stylings. I’m a one-woman show, so I do have to photograph my own stuff… but I love working at my own pace and being my own worst critic!


Some new stylings I have in works are for…
