As much as I love plants, my toddler and cats love them too.  They chew them, dig in them, knock them over.  Unless it's hanging from the ceiling, it's days are numbered.  I also moved into a new house without an abundance of sunny spots.  My other house had high light, and the plants that thrived there, kicked the bucket here.  I haven't decided where to hang some low light loving plants yet.  But I did see that my kitchen window sill was a perfect south facing sunny spot, well out of the way of tiny fingers and paws.

My lucky bamboo has been, well, lucky on the windowsill.  So I tried also getting an air plant.  So far so good.  But let's just say my gardening thumb is much greener than my houseplant thumb.  I'm hesitant to try more plants just yet.  But I had my sand, stones, gravel and jars out, and I was on a terrarium roll....

So I made some of these.  They require no light or water.  But they give me my house plant fix.  Plus I like to look at them while I"m working in the sink, which is often, lol.

And here are my curtains I made too....I love the pattern and colors.

Thanks for looking!

awww, That encourages me to keep going.  Thanks! Cheesy I need to make more things for myself and my home, I tend to mostly make things to sell, swap or gift.

That's my favorite too...It's actually a little senorita, she has bright red lipstick and eyelashes.  It's a vintage pin, there is a matching one I still have to do something with.  My mom was cleaning out my grandmother's house after she died, and there was an old cigar box just crammed full of vintage jewelry.  This pin was in there and it was my favorite piece.  I considered making it into something to wear, but I figure it's something I wouldn't wear very often.  I kind of like having it in a place I can enjoy it every day, it brings a smile to my face too!  I think I'll use the other one in a loaded charm necklace or something.
