Digging through my Treasure Stash I came across some old Formica Swatches.Big ones and little ones. I knew there had to be something Christmasy I could make with with wonders!
I always like to have fun new discoveries for the littles to come upon when they spend the night. The expressions on their faces are adorable and go right into my Heart's Memories. I can't take credit for this idea, I saw the one Empress of Dirt made for her shed roof 💙
It's nearing that time of the year that I dread ~ Pruning. Does your yard look like a jungle too?Does your grapevine reach out to touch you from the other side of the garden? It's just about time to prune back this grabby gal this Fall! Let's dig out those clippers and let's get started!
These Potpourri pies have been around for quite some time. I haven't thought about them in years. The Holidays will be here before we know it (don't shoot the messenger!) and I've been trying to think of something different to give out to my neighbors.Then these popped into my head! Different - check Unique - checkSmells awesome - checkCalorie free - check!
It maybe Fall but with temps in the high 90's it's hard to think of it as a seasonal change yet.Still craving the beach and adding to my Mermaid Deck, I thought "Why not a Mermaid Garden?"
You find a couple of drawers in great condition along the roadside. Grab them up. When asked what are you going to do with those? You answer "I'd like to make a Fairy Garden someday". You plan to make the decor your self, lo and behold every occasion that comes up you receive Fairy Goodies!Fast forward a couple years to actually getting to make your Fairy Garden! Here it is! Not exactly as I planned but just as cute and what fun!
I was feeling my backyard needed some umph. Maybe I had been staring at all the same plants for far too long and tiring of pruning. No, I'm not getting rid of any of my plants! But needed something new, maybe even fun and whimsical to find around the paths.I started this project early last Fall and am happy to say I did finish it before winter! I always think I can finish things much faster in my mind than I really can - real life always takes priority over projects. So delays are inevitable. The deck makeover is the first of the many ideas i had swirling around in my mind for my backyard. Probably because it is the first thing when stepping out the back door.My imagination is still progressing through the yard, a little slower than I would like, but it is moving forward.
Yes, I jumped on the Flip Flop Bandwagon!I usually don't like to follow trends, but these were just too darn cute and brought back the good memories of living in Miami.I'm on a mission of using what I have to try to thin out supplies, at least some!
Growing up Dad had this cabinet hanging in his shop with small tools, products, etc. in it. I always loved those little shelves.I always thought it was just another cabinet he had picked up along the way that he made into storage. Being a carpenter, he was always bringing home odds and ends.When we cleaned out the farm I asked my sister if I could have the cabinet. Of course, she said yes. That's when she told me it was originally a fold out ironing board that came with the house and that Mom and Dad had removed it. I then noticed the burnt area down by air vents - that I had never payed attention to before. Not sure what the story was there, but understand now why it was removed.
