Okay, in an attempt to do more with life than make beads I'll share some non-beading projects with you. I know, beads aren't enough? No! I'm in serious need of balance and spending more time with my family. The girls and I are working on two summer projects, gardening and creating an outdoor studio.
So I found this cute little nursery on the west side of town (great prices) and picked up some finds at the local flea market. Today we are going to work on the front of the house. There is a small neglected flower bed that is filled with Purple Queen and some kind of flowering bush. I have planted various things and killed them all over the years. (We'll have been here for 6 years in August.) The Purple Queen and a few succulents are the only things I've managed to keep alive. Hopefully I'll have better luck with this batch. I would love to be a gardener, my sister is an amazing gardener. She is always planting, moving things, arranging. It's a skill that has been lost on me!
