The friends I’m sharing with are some of the best in the home decor niche and I feel very blessed to be a part of something this fun with so many talented bloggers.

If you are new here, I’m Stacy, a self-taught master gardener who lives and gardens in northern New Jersey, zone 6a.

We recently moved to a beautiful 1850 Farmhouse with 10 acres of gardens, sculptures and statues.

I’ve been gardening for more than 20 years and enjoy helping beginner gardeners find their inner green thumb, as well as discover a love for all things plants and flowers. I love to bring the outdoors inside my home too.

I hope you enjoy visiting my home today and hope you come back so we can grow stuff and create beautiful spaces together.

Learn How to Wrap Presents Like a Pro With These 9 Simple Ideas

Since we just moved to our vintage farmhouse less than a year ago, I’m looking for new ways to decorate and celebrate the season.

We moved just before Christmas last year, so it was a bit of a whirlwind unpacking and decorating at least a little to make it feel like home.

I’m starting to decorate now because it’s going to take me some time to figure out what’s going where and how I want to sprinkle Christmas in each room.

While I’m decorating I’m implementing all sorts of new ideas and traditions to start here with my family in our new home.

One of which is adding a personal touch to Christmas gifts this year.

Every year, it seems like I rush around, dashing from here to there, and wrap the gifts last minute.

Some get tossed into gift bags and others get wrapped with simple craft paper and personalized gift tags.

But this year?

I’m looking to save some money on gift-wrapping supplies by repurposing, recycling, and reusing things we have to wrap presents this year.
