Dollar day do over-teacup planter

Came across this set while out junking with my aunt in Mesa Arizona. I love the shops out in Mesa. They have a lot of really nice vintage items in their shops out there. Not sure if this vintage or not but I thought it would be a nice little planter for some of my…

An Arizona adventure- visit to a cacti museum

I can’t believe how popular cacti have become out in the world. A couple of months ago I came across some little cactus erasers. I have also come across a bunch of cacti pillows online too. I guess I am so used to seeing them that I can’t understand why they became popular all of…

Repost-Road trip time

Had to check up on the little red house for the day and as always it was a beautiful drive. How blessed the people are that get to live here. It is what I imagine living in a postcard would feel like. Went to visit the town pond, at least that is what I call…

House plants for toxins in your home.

DIY_Up-cycle grandma’s old sewing table

I love these little tables, although recently I have noticed, it has been getting harder and harder to find them. If you happen to come across one, don’t get rid of it…they make the perfect little table for lamps, plants or just a place to put your drinks, plus they don’t take up a lot…

Aloe Vera- Heaven’s wand

Summer is almost over and as always our garden always takes a hit during the hot months here in Phoenix. No matter what my husband and I do, we always loose something over the summers in our garden. With record heats it is bound to happen. Even with covered areas with shade the temps are…
