I’m back! Since I’ve been away for many months, I am essentially re-launching my blog. It will take a long post to recap the events of the past few months, but it would seem strange not to share them. For those who are interested, the following is a summation of the events in my life since September.
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?
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.
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.
The house is almost to the point where we can live in it comfortably…Here’s a look at the process of removing wallpaper, which I learned from my in-laws…I’ve finished the primer coat on the bedroom walls, ceiling, closets, and bathroom and sink area…This week, Alex put a new window where the kitchen will be moving.
I have seen several beautiful hydrangea bushes in our neighborhood.
I would like to put hydrangea bushes at the corners of the front of the house (obviously, further away from the house than where the old bushes once resided).
So, what do you think? Yay, or nay on the hydrangeas?
