“Big Boy”, “Ace”, “Early Girl”

No , this blog is not about cute nick names to call your significant other. These are names of my recently planted tomatoes. As spring slowly arrives it is time to start thinking about planting a vegetable garden. My “garden” consists of several pots on my deck. There is nothing like the taste of a freshly picked tomato. Whether you have a spacious yard for a garden, a roof top, balcony, or deck I strongly urge you to plant a couple tomato plants. Pick a sunny area, keep watered, and you should have produce within a couple months. Try the cherry tomato. They tend to give off a lot of fruit. And you can just pick,wash and throw them into a salad. I will post photos of mine once they have matured. And stay tuned for all the ways I use them in recipes!tomato plants

Now thats an Easter Basket

After cleaning out my attic and discarding about 5 years worth of generic Easter
baskets, I was thrilled when I came across the beautiful Braided Shoppers. I
thought the colors were fun for spring/summer so I decided to use them for
Easter. They look great filled with fresh flowers,colorful eggs and of course a
chocolate bunny! And when the Holiday is over I will have a basket I can use for
virtually anything.

Check them out here!

Peter Cotton Tail – New Hand Knit Finger Puppets!

When I was a child, for Easter, my father would send us on Easter Egg Clue Hunts.  This wasn’t the normal Easter Egg Hunt.  Instead, my brothers and I  would each start with one plastic egg on the kitchen table filled with a clue as to where to find the next egg and clue.  There would be several eggs (sometimes with a tiny present or piece of candy) that would lead to the Easter Basket at the end.  It was a fun game, and my father loved to try and trick us with the clues. 

These little finger puppet bunnies remind me of this time of year and Easter Basket gifts.  So adorable!    

Here’s the little bunnies on a journey:

Think Outside the Box

If you read most home decor magazines these days the trend is mostly “combine it all.” New with old, soft with hard edges, neutrals with pops of color. If your having trouble figuring out where to start try applying these tips:

 1) Start in one room. It could be bathroom, kitchen, or home office.

 2) Think of what you need for that room. Do you need organization or something to “liven” up the room.

 3) If there is a specific area take measurements and keep them with you when you go out to shop. 

 4) When you find something that catches your eye think outside the box. There was an original use for the object but think about how it could work for what you need. Example: An old enamel or rusted muffin tin. Would this work on your desk to hold paper clips, rubber bands, stamps etc. Keep in mind you can apply a clear coat of spray paint to rusted item to protect from residue. 

 5) Start with a few things and live with them for awhile. Soon enough you will get the hang of how your interesting finds will add functionality and style to your home ! 

This old Pepsi Cola crate is a great option, and is available for sale  here.
