My shed can't even aspire to these. I'd be happy to get a new roof and patching the holes on mine. I hope a bigger makeover is in its future, but down aways on the priority list.

These are some wonderful and varied styles of sheds, cottages and backyard structures. But it’s Garden Folly that got my heart pumping (sorry, I couldn’t resist : -) What an imaginative way to house and camouflage something so mundane as a pump.

I put an old, rustic, farmhouse cabinet in my master bath and filled it with all the things I love.

I also used an old pie safe to hide arts and crafts in my family room.

I used an elongated subway tile for the kitchen backsplash but added a thin stripe of ridiculously expensive tile in just the right shade to match the wood floors then the tile guy and I came up with a pattern that also used some glass mosaic squares left over from the guest bath shower that tied in all the colors of the kitchen. The joy of happy coincidences.

Thanks @frenchdecor. I googled and the most basic marble mosaics came in between $10 and $20 at discount tile stores. I couldn't find anything less. But I agree with the principle of using it sparingly. I ended up using Ann Sacks Athens sparingly in my bath and coordinating with a less expensive porcelain. Although neither of these could be found anywhere near $5 per sq foot, the porcelain was about $15 sq ft less expensive than doing the whole area in the marble. So there was significant savings in the concept.

My favorite grass. Families often walk the neighborhood and I love seeing the wonder on little kids' faces when mommy shows them the "eyelash" grass in my yard.

We seeded our zone 3, high desert yard with Blue Grama 6 years ago. We leave one section unmowed and it's just beautiful, but the front yard gets mowed twice yearly and watered perhaps 3 times. It is stunning--lush and blue-green, and SO low-maintenance. Why anyone still plants Kentucky Bluegrass with the world's current water situation is totally beyond me.
