WIne Cork Garden Markers

Summer is in full swing here….my bubs finished his exams last Friday…and the peanut has her last exam tomorrow. I am scrambling to get ready to take bubs and my nephew to the beach for a week….looking forward to chilling on the Atlantic:) I am sure I will be popping in from time to time…but the regular post here may get a bit scattered. It seems that is pretty typical for blogland….If you are new here and just stopping by for the first time…please check out the project gallery…or look on the menu at the top for some recent projects:)

This was one of those ideas her I thought oh my gosh I’m a total genius… Until I Google searched and saw all about 10,000 other projects that we’re pretty much the same. So  I’m definitely not the first person to think about this but I thought maybe you hadn’t thought of the idea either so here it is:)

I told you the other day about my little container vegetable garden. I decided to go with things that were supposed to be easy so fingers crossed. My thinking was salad for dinner…strawberry shortcake for dessert you feel me? Am I right or am i right? So of course I had to dress up the little garden markers.

I took some wine corks that I had laying around along with some wooden bamboo skewers and my Sharpie markers to make my own cute little garden markers. They turned out so sweet I want to plant more things! My family tells me I have to wait to see how these do first. The confidence is low I tell you…. very low. They have all the right though. I’m kind of in ADD Gardner… I think that it’s the lack of immediate gratification that I have a problem with. But I am getting better about that. I suppose its old age setting in. I know that you really don’t need a tutorial for this you basically poke a sharp end of the bamboo into the wine cork and you label. Done and done. I like to keep things simple you know that.

Good luck to you and go plant and harvest hopefully!

DIY Self Watering Planter

I planted a salad garden this week….in a container. It is my first attempt at getting back into growing some of my own veggies. I thought I would start small and see how it goes. In my effort to keep my container salad garden alive I came across a really neat way to make sure my plants day hydrated….   I have seen this technic used in the past and thought I would give it a go:) You basically take a plastic water bottle of some sort, poke holes in it and embed it into the dirt so that it … [Read More...]

Fresh Garlic Guacamole

Readers who have been following MADMEN :Did ya watch the last episode of  Madmen? I thought that the ending was really good way to finish the whole story. I think that it's hard for  a show's producer to end it the way that everybody wants it to end. Regardless of how we said goodbye....I want to see more.  Don...doing yoga at a retreat on the Pacific ocean...such a great oxymoron to how he lived his live the past 7 seasons.  I'm telling myself that he went back to work.... he was reconnected … [Read More...]


Bacon Wrapped Fries

Fabulous spring summer weekend here!. Our neighborhood had an art festival on Saturday and Sunday. Saturday got rained out a little bit but Sunday was beautiful for the most part. We worked outside a little bit. Had a nice relaxing weekend. I'm thinking of doing a container garden. Anybody have any luck with those? What would you suggest? I was thinking of maybe cherry tomatoes and basil but I'm open to suggestions if you have any. After I had so much luck with my tulips this year my gardening … [Read More...]


goodbye Madmen

  The pageantry of Mad Men will come to a close this Sunday. Oh boy am I going to miss the show. I started watching on Netflix about 3 years ago and have been hooked ever since. I don't know if it is the incredible set design… the costumes that are so on point to the decade of the characters or if it is the characters that you really do love to hate…. Eye. Candy. (source AMC) It is an emotional rollercoaster. One moment you're cheering for Don as he figures out a character flaw that … [Read More...]

Family Room Light

While back I told you I was looking for a overhead light for our family room. Sometimes I remember to share new things on Instagram but then I forget to put it on the blog.   After some deliberation on styles of lights we ended up with this one from West Elm (not sure they still sell this light…had a hard time finding it.) The price point was exactly what we wanted to spend and the size was perfect fit for this room. I had a licensed electrician hang it up because it was a little … [Read More...]

Go see what she used to craft this up…Lantern … [Read More...]
