We've had a few pleasant additions to our family this year. It started with a cat. Then we had a baby boy. Finally we decided it was high time to add a betta fish to the menagerie. The fish is red and is thus named Philip after the red caped prince in Sleeping Beauty. He's red...do you see? I don't quite get it but there it is. My hesitation in getting a fish was the whole cleaning the tank dilemma. I'm swamped with chores as it is! But this tank is different and better. Most regular fish tanks require 50% water changes once a week. Once your plants are established, bi-weekly is ample. Beauty marries function in this water garden that combines fish with plants for an eye candy experience. And many thanks to the Eartheasy company for teaming up with us and awarding one lucky reader their very own Water Garden.

Having a backyard is a pleasure, but during the winter season you can’t help but think about all the work you’ll be doing when snow build up is too much. I was intrigued by a single stage snow blower review article I read and decided to write how we personally combat the snow season and make things easier after any storm. Here are some tips you can easily do before and during the snow and save yourself time in the future.
Those of us who spend hours in the garden are a proud sort. We work tirelessly to ensure that our outdoors area looks on point all year round. Even during the winter, we can be found pottering around in the garden tending to cold weather plants and shrubbery. We love the time we spend in the garden, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that we don’t wish that maintenance wasn’t at least a little easier. That and it can be oh so disheartening when all of our hard work is ruined at the first sight of bad weather.
I had no idea when I married Tom how much fish would play into our lives. It's a big deal to him and the girls. But it's taken us a few years to learn about how to use all the fish parts, especially in the garden to grow those humongous tomatoes. Thrifty people...we use it all. This is why I reached out to avid fisherman and artist, John Doherty through his company Fishaye Trading. His nautical themed products are spot-on for the fishing enthusiast in your life. Prints, placements, decorative trays, and even mirrors, he highlights the sea in such a unique way. All will appreciate his art from the cottage owner, coastal resident or wanna-be water dweller. I don't know about you, but I'm not just buying gifts at Christmas, it's a year-round deal here. So I'm super excited to introduce you to Fishaye Trading. The best part.... we have two winners today! First place gets a rustic nautical print in a cedar driftwood frame ($140) and second place gets four of his his stunning nautical placements ($40).
