Flowers You Can See Grow

I’ve seen this idea before on Pinterest so I thought I’d give it a try this Spring.  I used this hurricane vase I already had and bought some clear glass pieces from the dollar store.  I was also able to find a pack of these rain lily bulbs at Dollar Tree also since it’s spring. I put the glass gems in the vase and filled it up to the top of the gems with water.  Next I placed the bulbs in standing up and put it in a sunny spot.  this is the results so far…DSC_0057

After two weeks I got this flower but now the other two are starting to grow.

My Vacation photos

Hello I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  I don’t have any diys today but I have been meaning to share more posts about my day to day life.  It’s something that I need to get into the habit of doing.  Usually I feel like no one will want to see my boring photos but I always like to see other people’s posts about their lives and homes so here goes!  I went on a cruise to the Bahamas last weekend for a wedding of some friends so these are little more exciting than my usually weekend pictures.  I figured this was a good start so here ya go!

Homeade Butter and Honey Butter

DSC_0055

I had a super busy weekend and was able to get lots of work done, and still made this butter!  It’s super simple and I can’t believe it has taken me this long to realize how easy butter is to make.  It’s just one ingredient, heavy whipping cream and you can either shake it in a jar for a long time or use a food processor.

I used the later and it took about 5 minutes on high.  I also added some salt to mine for taste.  You will be able to tell when it’s done because there will be no more liquid and you can use a rubber spatula to scrape it out.  I put it in a bowl and folded in some honey to make honey butter because, well honey butter!  I also want to try to make some mulberry butter this summer after my mulberry trees have berries.  The possibilities are endless, enjoy! Let me know how it turns out.
