I am a 66 year old woman living in Omaha, Nebraska with my husband. I have 2 grown children and he has 2 from our previous marriages. We have 4 grandchildren. I have 2 cats (I adore cats!), 3dogs, 2 parakeets and 2 fresh water fish aquariums. I have a passion for flower gardening. Since I retired I have more time to enjoy flower gardening.

Making a Mini Fairy Garden

Making a Mini Fairy GardenA clay pot, a few plants, a 25 cent fairy from Goodwill, some potting soil, Popsicle sticks for a fence and some fairy garden items from a craft store and the result is a cute little fairy garden which was fun and easy to make! I plan on doing it again this spring. Some people like to make gnome gardens.

 

painted clay pot with bluebird decal and silver ribbon

Painted Clay PotSo easy, a much prettier way to display my orchid, and not time consuming to do. All you need is a clay pot and saucer, small bottle of acrylic paint, sponge brush, and rub on decals. Add a bit of ribbon if desired.

 

Flower Gardening in a Small Space - painted hanging pots on chain link fence with terra cotta pots inside

Flower Gardening in a Small SpaceIf you have a fence and no yard space, these hanging pots are the answer! I bought mine from the Lillian Vernon catalogue, but I imagine places like eBay and Amazon have them too. These pots were all yellow when I got them and I spray painted them. They all have drain holes, but I choose to just put pots into them.

 

Dog Potty Clean Up Station - old wooden box used for poop bag dispenser outside

Dog Potty Clean Up StationI found this wood box at the thrift store and then it set in my garage for 2 years. I knew one day it would come to mind what to use it fo. I am not sure what it was, maybe a box to hold a candle, it has a door that swings open and a hole in one end.

 

Protecting Clothespin Bag Left on Clothesline - dog food bag slipped over clothespin bag

Protecting Clothespin Bag Left on ClotheslineSoon begins the hanging laundry on the line season. I have a very nice cloth monogrammed bag that I like to keep hanging on the clothesline right where I need it. To protect it from the rain and sun I found a simple solution. After I emptied a large birdseed bag I cleaned it out and cut a hole in the top, slipped it over the bag and it is well protected with ease.

 

Completed Ladybug Rocks

Ladybug RocksI saw cute painted ladybugs on Pinterest and decided to make some. I live by a landscape/ mulch yard and bought stones the sizes I needed. I think you can buy rocks at hobby stores too.
