Every thrift store has unique little tea plates that are missing their tea cups, or just charming, ornamental plates.
These stores also have an array of glass lampshades from discarded light fixtures.
So I thought to myself, why not combine these two readily available items to make inexpensive and unique pots? Continue reading
When I saw this old picnic basket in the thrift store last week, it beckoned me to snatch it up and make it into a new home for some flowers.
At first, I wanted to put some daisies in it (I am inexplicably drawn to daisies—all the time), but I decided to go against my natural inclination. I put a combination of plants with different leaves, colors, and heights into the basket. Continue reading
In the summer, cars without air-conditioning create petulant people who would bring Oscar the Grouch to tears.
I was no exception. But at least I tried to keep smiling, hoping it would make me feel better. It didn’t. Continue reading
We’re making progress here and there on the kitchen. We measured and planned out the cabinet boxes…Then, we constructed the cabinet boxes for one side of the kitchen, sans the facings. I even helped with cutting the wood, and I got to use the nail gun a few times…The first thing I made on the stove was peanut chicken…If you’re curious, here’s how to make this dish… Continue reading
I drew a stem with some leaves onto a piece of sturdy paper. I would have just created it in Photoshop, but our printer hasn’t been working. This forced me to draw—something I haven’t done in quite some time. That’s why I kept it as simple as possible. Continue reading
I’m not letting it replace the other things I like to do, but I will definitely make an allotted time for it each day.
I may be new to it, and it will probably take a bit of time before I’m any good at it. However, from the small amount that I’ve done, I thoroughly enjoy getting dirty and nurturing plants. I don’t even mind most of the bugs, and believe it or not, I like weeding. Continue reading
To make the Hot Air “Hinderers” that I referred to in the previous post (you can read it here, if you’re interested in a short update about my epic rivalry with wasps), you’ll need some fabric and something with which to stuff the finished product. Continue reading
This time they sent a spy into the enemy camp: my sewing room. They deployed one of their ninjas to wait in the dormer window grilles. He was so stealthy that I didn’t see him until I sat down and took a bite of my Frosted Mini Wheats.
Alex and I have been enjoying working on the new kitchen together. I love learning new things, and he’s been teaching me as we go along. I learned all about the electrical and the plumbing as he worked on the new kitchen walls…After all of the wiring was done for this wall, Alex and I measured, cut and hung the sheetrock.
