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.

Stuff I Made: A Skirt

Image

I haven’t really had much time to work on anything new lately and was sick all of last weekend, (boo!) but I’m feeling much better now have lots of new projects planned!  I thought I’d show off this skirt I made a few years ago from old kitchen curtains.  I found the curtains at an antique store I used to frequent when I lived in Fort Wayne.  I loved how kitschy they were but didn’t have any windows they would fit on and they didn’t really match my decor so I made them into a skirt.   Let me know if you’ve ever made anything found into something wearable, I’d love to see your projects.  Have a great rest of the weekend and hopefully the weather stays nice for everyone!

Easter Weekend

I hope everyone had a great weekend, whether you celebrate Easter or not!  The weather here was perfect and I was sooo happy to be outside after a long cold winter.  Saturday we drove back to Indiana to see my family and took a walk to the old rail road trestle by my mom’s house.  20140422-202946.jpg20140422-203002.jpg

On Sunday we went to Ben’s family’s Easter dinner and watched his nephew hunt for eggs for the first time.  I also took some pictures of his dad’s old gremlin.  I ate way too much candy this weekend, but hey that’s what Easter is for!

Oh and I got this adorable peeps skewer thingy from my friend Kelly.  Everyone that knows me knows I have an unhealthy obsession with peeps.  Thankfully they aren’t available all year long or I’d be in trouble!
