Some Lovely Features (+ winners!)

By Kate Riley May 9, 2012

I’m sitting at my desk realizing there are a lot of people to thank this week, people who have picked me for some lovely features and so I want to say it out loud right here.

Thank you to Natural Home & Garden magazine for featuring the story of our cabana in their May/June edition!

I also wrote a guest post for the Home Depot Apron blog about that cabana, which is going up again in the backyard this weekend, hooray for blissful living outdoors!
