Saturday Sharing from the She-shed Volume 18

What’s Happening at WM Design House

Happy Saturday my friends!

We are currently in Pflugerville Texas visiting our oldest son, his wife, and two daughters.

Our son moved to Texas with his wife about a year ago. They bought a house from an IG influencer named @ourfauxfarmhouse. It is such a fun house full of all kinds of interesting touches. It still has a lot of that farmhouse charm, and get a load of the girls play house.

This was our first time meeting our newest granddaughter Lucy who is three weeks old.

We are loving spending time with the girls, we took a trip to Home Depot to get a few plants, You can never start them in the garden too early! Teaching little Gabby to stop and smell the roses along the way.

Have you ever heard of nut grass? well, it is out of control in Texas and apparently nothing kills it. And the dirt, or should I say mud definitely makes it a challenge to garden. We tried to plant a few flowers around the playhouse, time will tell if they survive or not. I think planting in pots or raised beds is the way to go around here.

Recent blog posts

Just in case you missed something last week. I was only able to get one post written since I was traveling.

Have you seen the mushroom decor craze this year? I’m sharing all about it and how to make these amazing oversized mushrooms out of moss.

Working with moss is one of my favorites. I love bringing fresh green into the house this time of the year. I decorated my front porch and my kitchen table with several of these mushrooms that I made in one hour. They are so whimsical and added the perfect touch to my home.

My friend Crystal @sweetvalleyacres shares all of the latest home trends you can find for 2023. Her pool is amazing. Her family laid every one of these tiles by hand to cover every inch of the pool, it took them weeks, but so worth it in the end. Isn’t it beautiful?
