Things have been a little CRAZY here! We had some major storms roll through and were without power for several days. We lost a couple big pine trees but luckily none fell on our home:)
I tell you....really makes you appreciate a little electricity when you don't have it for a few days....and it really makes you stop and think about what it would be like to really go trough a natural disaster like a hurricane.
Anywho...i'm just glad to be back to normal!!!
Recently I discovered glass floats after Kamichia of The Glass Float Junkie connected with me via my blog:) Let me tell you....these little glass floats are so cute!!!
There are just so many things you can do with them. I chose to put mine in a silver bowl with some starfish!
I just love the color of them! and can you believe she collects them off the beaches in Alaska! Amazing:)
Check out her shop if your interested!
I put this display in my dining room!
Makes me so happy whenever I walk in my front door....that's the first thing you see in my home when you walk through the front door! Kooky..I know...it used to be the formal living room but I made it into my dining room....I think it works!
I also used another of the glass floats on my little table in my sunroom:)
I love everything about these floats....they're vintage, they're aqua blue, they came from the ocean and really sweet girl collected them from the beach!!!!!! Check her out if you're interested in getting a couple for yourself!!!!! You won't be disappointed:)
On to other things.....
At least the storm didn't tear up my garden too much!
I've got tomatoes starting and tons of lettuce to eat!!!!!!!
I am so excited about my garden this year and I can't wait to do even more with it next year!
Oh and here's a little project I had my husband do for me....
let's see what you think!
Our friend's recently put up a privacy fence in their yard and instead of letting them throw away the scraps I took them! I had my husband build some planter boxes out of them! I think they look sort of beachy and they will keep fading as time goes on!
I just adding some simple beach grass and wallaaa.....not bad for FREE:)
The only thing I want to do is add some kind of something to the tops......
I thought about rope...like this....or maybe some kind of metal something or other.
What do you think?????
Oh and here's another one with petunias in it!
I love petunias....they're just so happy:)
Weather means more when you have a garden. There's nothing like listening to a shower and thinking how it is soaking in around your green beans. ~Marcelene Cox
