I agree with what someone else said about putting some lovely shutters on the front. If it were my home, I would maybe focus on the patio you have there and fill it up with potted plants and such. Make it a little oasis. You can even do some inexpensive water features you can make yourself. Maybe line the walk way with potted plants but it looks to be dry there so you would be watering a ton and that makes the water bill go up. Good luck with this marvelous blank canvas to work with! Have fun!!!

 I purchased a pile of sparkly baubles a couple weeks ago with the intention of making some sparkly things for my garden. Procrastination is such an evil thing but I enjoyed looking at the pile-O-sparkle on my craft table when the sun hit it.

 Anyway! I wanted to make a twirlywhirl/windcharm for my yard like I've seen around Pinterest but couldn't find proper wire. I thought of using a coat hanger, which is what I'll use next time but I found some wire at Michael's that would did the trick.
I made this!


I tried to get a picture of it in the sun but it didn't work but it's super sparkly and I made it to twirl.
I used the wire I found at Michael's
thin wire that I found in the floral department
all my sparkly beads that I found super cheap at Hobby Lobby
and some little bells I had in my stash.

I wrapped the beads around the wire.

It was a really easy project, didn't cost too much money (maybe $8 at the most) and it adds some pretties to my yard.
Hope you like!

Such a good idea and perfectly executed! I'm sure you'll get a ton of use out of it. I always feel bad using the plastic bags at the store.

Hope you survived the heat around here!! I barely did Smiley.

uggh...It's going to be 90 on Monday, I hear.  Hey, the plastic bags are good poo picker uppers for dogs.. Grin


Pinokeeo!   *waves* HI!!!

It's going to be a scorcher here today and for those of us who are not acclimated to this type of heat...uh,me..I'ma gonna melt.
I wanted to get a little crafting in early and I've been trying to go through my stash. My pile-o-stash. Anyhoo! been wanting to make reusable produce bags for some time now since I've been really trying to reduce my plastic use. This bag isn't a thing of beauty but it will do the trick and cut down on a ton! of plastic as I buy lots of produce. It's washable too!  

I cut a 16 1/2" by 13" piece of tulle on the fold. (The 13" is on the fold) I sewed up one side twice with a smaller stitch on the sewing machine then I zig zagged it. If I knew how to work my serger I would have used that. I just wanted to make sure I sewed it several times so it's good and strong. I added the inch binding to the top after I sewed up one side and tucked in the cord I found from and old sleeping bag in there to eliminate threading it through. Then I sewed up the other side the same as the first which made it a little bag.
It's really easy and fast and eliminates lots of plastic. It was super cheap too! Any questions please let me know and I hope ya'll make some. I'll be making a several more of these to give to family and friends too!
Now...off to the couch with a Popsicle and a movie.
