After all the much-needed rain, we have a sunny day! Brightly colored flowers are finally in bloom in our gardens.

Spy the spider?  Barely visible is a tiny spider hiding from my camera.

Art Outdoors: Paint Fun   27 comments


As with most of my ideas/projects there is rarely an enforced timeline for completion. I started this painting project in December 2011.

Painted Wooden Fire Chair

I finished the majority of the painting this week.

 

Chainsaw Chair We use a large section from a fallen oak tree to cut the main body of the chair.

 

Fire Circle Wooden Chair The chair topper adds neat detail.

The most difficult part of this painting was keeping my hands clean as to not paint my camera during the two days of painting. I used all old paints that would have ended up in the landfill to brighten up our backyard!

 

Enjoy your day!

Compost Bin: Real Simple   2 comments


Take four wooden pallets untreated of equal dimensions and twelve drywall screws. Bam!

 

  It is that simple.

 

 

  With our first pallet compost bin almost full, we may make a second bin.

 

 

 

Blackberries have been a diet staple since childhood. 

 

The purple queen beans have a lovely blossom.

 

 

The two sweet potatoes that made slips from last fall’s crop are healthy.

 

Enjoy your day!
