About Us

Join Jami Boys of the website An Oregon Cottage and her husband Brian (always a co-conspirator in DIY projects and videos) as they discuss cooking simple, real foods, growing food and flowers, and tackling easy home improvement and decor projects - the kind everyone can do. You'll hear the things that went well, as well as things that didn't go according to plan (that you just have to laugh about).Never ones to get hung up on perfection or abilities, they believe everyone can make a house a home and live a simple handmade life. Whatever level you want to create things, whether it’s full-throttle make everything from scratch or just dipping your toes into cooking or creating a warm home environment, you’ll find something here you can use - and have fun doing it.

Latest Episodes

Are We Washing Our Clothes Too Much?

Brian and Jami review recent evidence that we're doing too much laundry. Clothes don't need to be washed each time you wear them (at least outer ones you haven't spilled spaghetti sauce on). Frequent washing wears your clothes out sooner. And now they're finding microfibers in a lot of marine life. We have some farmhouse updates, a winter dinner menu, and share some cool new discoveries.

Jami's video "17 Homemade Gift Ideas in 6 Minutes" recently got a big spike in viewership and we discuss what commenters were saying about. DIY food gifts are especially nice to receive. Learn which ones have gotten the best response. Plus cool things we've recently discovered.

Travel Tips For Austin & San Antonio

Learn why Austin, TX is a fun place to stay, with great food--like BBQ!--and lots to do. And surprisingly affordable (if you don't buy a house while you're there). And while you're in Austin, it's just a quick trip down the interstate to San Antonio, home of The Alamo. It's also got a wonderful river walk and just a few miles out of town is a series of missions dating back to the early 1700s. Well worth the visit. Plus, learn about a couple of things we've discovered that make travel easier.
