Happy Pink Saturday!

And, happy first day of my birthday month. Thanks Beverly for organizing Pink Saturday. Make sure you visit all the other fab pinkness!
We set up the aquarium with new rocks and a new pink plant. This is where George & Ringo the fancy guppies live along with Ernest Hemingway the frog. Yes, there is a plan to get John & Paul for the tank as well.

These are some wonderful towels my friend made me. Love my mingos!
These are some of the lovely petunias I will be planting today (weather permitting).
I have decided to do a give away on the May 29th Pink Saturday, since it is my birthday as well. Stay tuned for more details. I am sure pink will be involved somewhere. Enjoy your day!

Swap Season

I joined this wonderful swap over at the lovely Sarah's  Gypsy Mermaid blog! I am so excited I love the seaside! I have been daydreaming about it for months - ok years really. So, it is off to the mess studio to get cranking. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Happy Monday!

Here it is... my very own made beach glass. I love it! Only trouble my brand new tumbler belt broke after 3 days of tumbling. So, I went and got a new belt. Guess what?! You got it, it broke after 12 hours. Trip back to the store with box and everything will be happening this week.

Garden update ~ I made the square frame for my garden. Off to Home Depot to figure out how much soil I need. We have clay, so hubby thinks I need to dig out some since the plants would only have 3 inches to root in. It is supposed to rain tomorrow so at least I would not need a jack hammer. I am excited to be going to the plant sale this weekend at the Botanical Garden. Yeah. Maybe it will help with some ideas as well.

Hope your week has started off wonderful. Going to set my weekly goals and make the most of it!

Wow! Where have I been?

I would love to say that I have been busy with wonderful and creative stuff in my time away, but that has not been the case. Truth is, I have been cluttered with the boring. You know taxes, laundry, dishwasher, more laundry and just the normal every day life ditties. No real progress has been made anywhere. I did get a few seeds planted for the garden. Now, if I only had a garden. There is so much to do and some days I wonder will anything ever get done and then I think if one thing does it is better than nothing. I shall go make my to do list and make sure I put one thing I can get done.

I did start the tumbler yesterday with some broken glass in it to make some beach glass. I so wish I was at the beach. I would love to listen to the waves. I think I could sit there for days, except for the trips walking to find treasures. We go on a family beach trip every year and right now I am looking forward to that and think it can't get here fast enough.

Make sure if you only do one thing on your to do list - it is to make your loved feel special and know they are loved! So many times we are busy with life we forget the small things that are the most important! I know I have, but vow every day to make that a priority (the laundry can wait)!

Have a wonderful and creative day!
