Time to Plant New things


Today I kinda just kicked back and chilled. I did try to take some photos for new items for the shop but I am not 100% happy with them.  I think it's the fact that my hair is curly and frizzy and I have no makeup on.  I admit I was too lazy to try to fix anything and it was hott. 


I hate that awkward wrinkle in my forehead that I guess everyone gets as they get older. I guess I am going to have to learn to live with it.


I love finding vintage mexican blankets. I have 6 that I have kept for myself.


So I think my lens for my camera might be a little beat up because the photos are not as crisp as they were when I first got my camera. 


My older sister and I visited the potting shed and I got some herbs, veggies and a couple of flowers to plant.

I worked all day trying to plant them while trouble maker came and dug up what I was planting. This photo is of him tugging on my camera strap. He didn't want me to accomplish anything today.

I spent a bit more and got this hibiscus bush to add some bright color to our back patio. I am currently trying to revamp our pile of crap into a paradise for summer. The plants are just the beginning. I am going to try to put together a couple diy patio projects to post on here and help me save some moolaa.


I took all the soil I had in all my old pots dumped it, cleaned out the roots and re mixed it. 


It filled all these pots nicely :)



Are you planting anything? Did you start planting yet? What is your favorite thing to grow?

  1. I wish I grew my own fruits and vegetables. i just seem so caught up in other stuff that I forget about those kinds of things.
