Tater (Calico)

Tater (Calico)Tater (Tat) is less than a year old. She's a "Heinz57" (mixed breed, unknown, Mutt). When I first moved here my neighbor brought her to me. She likes to catch mice and bring them to me! Tater likes to nap with me.


Finished project with dried flowers hanging from pegs.

Stenciled Garden SignThis is a cute sign to hang in your garden area. I have mine in my garden shed. There are lots of cute things you can stencil on your sign. Here are a few I've heard, thought of myself or seen:


Glass Bottle Wind Chimes

Bottle Wind ChimesI make the wind chimes out of liquor bottles, wine bottles, and this one happens to be a wine cooler bottle. I use a glass cutter and cut off the bottom. I use a ceramic knife sharpener to smooth the sharp edges. If it has a screw on top, that's a plus.


Spider made from child's handprints.

Handprint SpiderThis quick and easy craft uses minimal materials and is such a cute representation of your little one's hand prints. We made ours to hang up for decorations during a buggy birthday party, but this can work just as good a spring craft, as well as, a Halloween craft.

Growing Amaryllis in Zone 5?Today (June 4) I received a Red Lion Amaryllis bulb. It has a double stalk, the taller one being 12 inches high. Each stalk has what appears to be a large bud. It has not been planted in soil and the bulb is very clean. It is pale green in color. It has not been in water either.

Feet Are Itchy from Playing in Grass?My grandson has some type of ground itch on the bottom of his feet from playing outdoors barefoot. Should I take him to the doctor or is there something I can use at home? I have been using vinegar soaks and a salve, but not sure it is going away completely. Any suggestions?
