This is my lighted gazing ball that I lovingly refer to as my "Fairyball". It's made from a standard gazing ball that can be purchased at most garden or craft centers and an old log we
fished out of a river while camping. We let it dry for a year, then drilled a hole right up through the center and ran an extension cord up through the hole to plug the strand of lights into. Colored LED lights have been the best string of lights because they do not get hot inside the glass ball and burn out. Its on a timer and glows 365 days a year down in my shade garden.
We're having another awesome hangout on G+ today at 1:00 CST. I woke up sick this morning, but I hope everyone will join the other ladies for this hangout! I made these plant markers and
I also have a downloadable sheet with three wonderful recipes using nasturtiums. Stop on over to my site and see the tutorials for these plant markers...and download my recipes! Here is the link to the hangout this afternoon:
I made concrete planters for a total cost around 7 dollars. If I used the whole bag of concrete I could make 23 planters for that 7 dollars. There was only 20 minutes of hands on time and was very easy to complete.
I use mirrors in the garden to add interest and give the impression that I have double the plants! For large mirrors, I use old mirrored shower doors. They're water resistant and hold up
year round. For bird safety, the mirrors are placed parallel to bird flight paths in my narrow side garden. In open areas, I cover the larger mirrors with lattice. There's more details on my blog. http://www.empressofdirt.net/using-mirrors-i...
Maybe you've started your own business, or the company you work for lets you work from home a few days a week. Maybe, like the rest of us, you have TOO many hand held devices and charging
time becomes a race for the next available outlet. If this sounds like you, you'll be excited to learn about these hot new products. Scroll through these pictures to find out about the latest and greatest ways to hide your power cords & even the power sources themselves!
I just added the Evoline USA product to my own new kitchen. Find out more about this and the other products here: http://www.randidestefano.com/power-up-in-st...
I cannot wait to get going in my new house with some flower/shrub beds and perennials. I did a perennial bed at my old house in Birmingham and it's been too long since I had my hands in
the dirt. My new house is a blank slate waiting for some flower love and I can't wait to get to tackle some of the areas at this house too. I love flower gardens! Yes, I'm itching for spring. First thing up, is renovating my screen porch!
