Spanish Moss

Hello Readers,
This time of year many of us are planting our beautiful flowers, I look forward to this every year don't you?
I want to show you just a few of my plantings.
Spanish moss is a nice finishing touch for pots




I think it looks finished with the moss


This is my favorite! I bought this copper pot many years ago I just love the patina.
my plants are growing quite nicely I added coleus for a little extra touch, isn't Abby the cutest thing!
 every thing is filling in I just love Spring and Summer!
until next time go grab a little sunshine!

Got Rust?

Hello Readers,
Thanks for stopping by today. I read a lot of blogs and a few weeks ago the very lovely Rosemary posted a segment on her blog about bottles and mercury. She listed her ingredients and one of them is "rust" I started to giggle, I asked "who keeps rust" or "where does one find "rust" well it's not that hard to find.

Look here folks I've got myself a small cup of RUST!! Clean your gas grill and believe me you'll have rust too! So what am I going to do with it?
Remember my three little birdhouses? Click here to see #1


 Well here is #2
I used the rust to create a shingle look for my birdhouse and then I applied moss to give it a more rustic appearance.
I used Mod Podge to apply the scrapbook paper
 I rubbed on dark wax too
you just never know what "tidbit" of information will come in handy. Thanks Rosemary I owe you :)

Something for the Birds

Hello Readers,
I want to share with you this quick and easy project

 I purchased these birdhouses at my local craft store
along with scrapbook paper
 using Mod Podge, glue gun and moss I was able to jazz up this little birdhouse
 Voila!
A home for the birds! Crafting is so much fun don't you think?!


Thanks for coming by! Ivy and Elephants
