Our Fairfield Home & Garden’s Top Ten Posts of 2014


Our Fairfield Home and Garden has had a great year! Garden and home projects that look great, are economical and able to be done by the average person are our focus. Here are the readers’ favorites for 2014. Just wait. I have lots more up my sleeve for 2015!

 Number 1 of all Our Fairfield Home and Garden’s 2014 posts was Build a Catio. This little screened structure connected to our laundryroom is our favorite, too. Not to mention that our cats are wild for it and wait impatiently for me to open it each day!

 Number 2, The 32 Shutter Challenge, was all about how I built a whole garden around cast-off shutters. Coming up with ideas to use them all up was a blast, and my garden has never looked better!

 Number 3 was how to Build a Raised Bed Garden inexpensively. Raised beds are easier on your back and perfect where digging in the soil is less than ideal because of rocks, tree roots, etc. They look pretty darn nice too!

 Number 4 went to Easy Sugar Cookies. We all love homemade cookies, but who likes all that rolling and cutting? This yummy recipe makes a lot too, perfect for gifts, parties and school!

Number 5 really appealed to you thrifty gardeners. Kitschy Kitchen Garden Accents were projects all made using Dollar Store finds!

 Number 6 was my take on a Bowling Ball Garden Accent. Most of the time spent on this project was waiting for glue to dry!

Number 7 in popularity was the Vintage Button Wreath. This project was easy and used up sewing materials I already had on hand!

 Number 8 was the Wood Scrap Scarecrow. What a fun project to make for a unique garden accent in your flowerbeds!

 Number 9 showed our Spring Windowboxes overflowing with blooming bulbs and plants that are then transferred to the garden to enjoy for years to come!

 Number 10 was a compilation of birdbaths I have made for our garden. Easy to do using recycled materials, they will enhance your garden as well as draw in the birds.
