For the last few years I’ve set a goal to do at least one pin from my Pinterest collection each season. I don’t always reach that goal, but am slowly trying out pins. Today I’m sharing my DIY Easter sock bunny. There are several posts online for a sock bunny. I used a Dollar Tree pair of white socks. I could not find an all-white pair of men’s socks and had to buy a women’s pair. It works fine but is a little smaller than those shared elsewhere.Read More
I was watching a documentary on Amazon Prime last Sunday. The Gardener is a story about Frank Cabot. He is the man responsible for a horticultural masterpiece of the 21st century, Les Quatre Vents in Quebec. The story is about the history of his family’s home and how he began to expand the garden to create a series of garden rooms that are pure art. If you have Amazon Prime, do take a peek if you love nature, art, and gardens.Read More
I’ve pinned pretty egg carton flower crafts for a few years. This year I’m trying to make more of my inspiring pins. First I thought I would use paper egg cartons which seems to be the favorite among crafters. You can paint them any color. Then I saw a neighbor throwing away colored styrofoam egg cartons in white, pink, and yellow. (Our county does not accept styrofoam in recyclables.) Hmm, okay I decided to rescue the styrofoam and give it a try.
Welcome to my 2021 review of 2020! It’s always fun to look back over the year to see what the top posts were. I have left out the almost 7000 visits to my home page/archives as it does not name specific posts. I also dropped visits to my email subscribers page which was 2nd in visits. I had over 18, 000 visitors with the highest number of visitors coming in March. Ah yes, horrible March when we all were made to stay home. I love having visitors but I don’t want another March like that. Let’s have some fun at look at the posts that made people happy.
Today I’m sharing a little wood slice frame made from a dollar store frame and small wood slices from my craft supplies. Early this year I found several wood frames at Dollar Tree with wider flat sides. I bought several to embellish later. The wood slices are left over from my wood slice chargers I made. Read More
It’s fall and it’s time for the visit to a local apple orchard, one of my favorite things to do. I eat apples year round, but autumn brings a fresh crop of so many different kinds of juicy apples. Apples to eat and apples to put in baskets on my table. I don’t know about you, but I try to use all the apples. I like to eat a crisp fresh apple daily. It has been reported it decreases the frequency and severity of asthma attacks, but the truth is, I don’t really need a reason. Fall means apple crisps, apple pies, apple sauce, apple yogurt toast…. the list goes on and on. Today let’s talk about all those apple peels and cores and even the whole apples that have sat in bowls and aren’t quite crisp.Read More
Last winter I purchased a bag of unused remnants at a thrift store. Besides several small pieces of various patterns,there were two pieces of deep blue material with sunflowers in two coordinating designs. I loved them and thought one piece was large enough to make a summer tablecloth.
