My daughter recently gifted me some fairy garden items, which I am excited about.
Our lawn maintenance crew have totally destroyed my old fairy garden.
They have broken several little pieces of furniture that I had purchased and they have blown away or toppled many pieces with their leaf blower, which probably felt like a tornado to the little people.
I’m using an old plastic sand box that my grand children played with when they were little.
I filled it with some dirt and potting soil and then planted a few plants; white star creeper and a succulent.
My favorite item is the little tire swing; the grandkids love to swing on the ones hubby made for them on our ranchito.
It needs a few more items but I’ll add gradually because I’m sure the grandkids will make suggestions.
I love adding different projects to the garden, it keeps me young at heart and keeps my imagination alive.
I’m not quite finished with this little garden but I’ll update with pictures when I’m finally done.♥♥♥♥
One of my favorite projects to do is the sweatshirt makeover.
It’s possible and so very easy to dress up an ugly sweatshirt and make a cute little cover up. It can be casual or dressy.
To start my project I cut the waistband off and shortened the length, and then I cut down the middle of the sweat shirt to make it like a cardigan. The sleeves were also cut to 3/4 length and cuffs were made.
Anything is possible just by using your imagination and own design ideas.
I used rhinestone nail heads to trim it around the neck and a few on the front..
A good time to buy the sweatshirts is right after winter when they go on sale.
Last year I made this green top and looked really nice with black slacks.
Our oldest grandson, Garrett, took this great picture, so I had to share.
We took a trip with the 4 grandkids to Sacramento and happened to be dining at a restaurant by the Sacramento River, when our grandson noticed that the duck would pop up and then hide. Garrett managed to snap the picture just at the right time.
I kept trying to catch the duck as he popped up, but he was to fast for me.♥♥♥♥
