Wannabe Plant Lady Chronicles Pt. 1

Sometimes you are convinced that you must have done a particular thing at some point in your life but then you are confronted with reality that you didn’t when you actually attempt said thing. I thought I had planted flowers before but apparently not. Ever since I was a child, I’ve always liked flowers-drawing them,…

Crawl Space Finds

Outdoor Oasis: The Big Reveal

We had high hopes for the courtyard area from the beginning. It has gone through several rehab attempts. First, we cleared out the scraps left behind. That included sanding, staining, and painting the picnic table that was there. We also spray painted the fence and poles. The wavy rim was taken off of the top…

About the Site

The inspiration for the site’s name came from the city of Greenville, South Carolina. The name ranks #4 most popular US city name behind Washington, Springfield, and Franklin. Since there are 29 other Greenville, (fill in the blank), my hometown started using the hashtag-Yeah That Greenville-in order to stand out from the rest. When I…
