Reclaimed red brick free on Craigs list We just had to load and haul it . 18$ worth of pea gravel and sand - about 8 bags of gravel and 1 bag of sand , and 6 landscaping timers 19 $   I Love it so much and We are going to do another boarder of landscape timbers around the 2 sides to create a flower bed edge

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / Aquarium stand turned plant holder on: June 11, 2014 01:58:37 PM
I made a quick diy plant stand from a recycled old wrought iron aquarium stand thats been hanging around forever ! , 1$ floral wire and 3 dollar store planters ! I love it , Now I just need some more plants for it and to decide what to do with the bottom ( more planters or plant directly in the soil ..?) .. this section of our yard near the pond We plan to use bricks or landscaping timbers filled with pea gravel to make a little sitting area . ...note the planters were too small squared up so I placed them on the diagonal and used wire to secure them in place


I love making use of items that might  otherwise end up in the trash
 Thanks for looking and have a great day

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects / (Updated pics )Horse trough container gold fish pond/ fountain on: June 10, 2014 09:07:49 PM
Hi everyone

  Im really excited to share My Gold fish pond made from 90 % recycled materials . My Mom was moving and cleaning out her old property . I quickly called dibs on a 200 gallon stock tank metal horse trough , and 2 decorative barrels from a broken fountain , I got the antique sink sport for 2 dollars at a garage sale and all the rock and brick used ( besides pea gravel ) was recycled and re claimed !  The biggest cost was 100 $ for the " pond lit" which included a huge liner , 300 gallon power head and 3 lead lights ( A good deal considering a pump alone is 40 -60 . ) We needed the liner because My Mom had  used the trough for a tomato planter and  it had a 2 inch drainage whole . I am showing alot of progress pics here . in the final pic its the pond as of tonight . The surround still isnt 100 % finished because a friend is tearing down a cobble stone and marble fire pit very soon  and letting us salvage the materials so We are planning to make a marble ledge covering the liner bits .. for now I started placing flatish cobble stones to give a general idea

I re-placed the cobble stones and the plants are getting bigger

pic from tonight


progress pics








Thanks so much for looking and Id  be glad to answer any questions and Ill upload more progress pics .. ID love to see your DIY ponds as well !
 Have a great night

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tacky gold + Antique lace= AMAZING brocade skater skirt on: June 06, 2014 02:55:58 PM
My MIL gave My some gold fabric that was a bit much on its own .. I  had  recently picked up a yellowish creamy lace antique curtain that was a bit plain  .. I combined the two and I LOVE the " Brocade" effect ! I made a simple high waist circle " skater " skirt and Im really proud of how it came out

The black velvet top with gold sequins was My cousins Grandmas ! and It goes perfect







Thanks for looking and have a great day

Hi everyone , I am so happy with My new circle " skater" dress made with red, yellow and blue striped vintage polyester knit fabric with coral colored vintage polyester  waist inserts






 This dress was so easy to make .. Had I not added the waist inserts I could have made this dress with only 3 seams ! Very easy to do even by hand ! I can make a tute if anyone wants

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Micro aquarium sponge filter from Hotel Shampoo bottle ! on: March 18, 2014 12:29:28 AM
 Cheesy
 Iv got a few experimental tiny planted aquariums going I recently "reset" them both with full dirt substrate and tonight I added DIY micro filters. The 1.8 gal is a totally reconstructed tank . Its started as this poorly designed catastrophy http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/educational-toys/national-geographic-undersea-aquarium.asp

I removed the no longer functioning " periscope sub "  added a whisper HOB planted it riparium style and tonight the sponge filter ! only plant inhabitants " The bowl to the side has the same sponge filter and a few snails



 I added some carbon to the sponge



Hotel Shampoo , cut off bottom , poke several holes , insert air stone and sit inside sponge with a hole carved out but not thru . The air stone pushes air that creates a vacuum inside the bottle which pulls water and waste into the bottle and forces it thu the sponge where it is filtered thru the carbon tablets

covered in lava rocks




Thanks for looking and have a great day
 I hope this helps anyone out there with tiny aquariums or fish bowls . I previously thought fishbowls couldnt be filtered ( other than thru live plants ) a sponge filter gives an additional place for beneficial bacteria to grow and the more "bb" you have per water ratio the cleaner your water will stay and the healthier your fish will be .Especially in bowls where the gravel to water ratio is low it helps to have added surface area . ALONG with LIVE plants of course

Have a great day
Jayne

 this is also a great way to recycle hotel shampoo bottles or any small bottle for bigger aquariums try a 20 oz pop bottle
