Make Your Own Succulent Planter

Last month I told you how #2 daughter must be plotting a blog takeover since she's been creating and taking photos of her progress as she goes.

She did a hack of a Target nightstand, and that post included some succulents she planted in two heavy glass squares but she forgot to take photos of the mystery process.

I didn't care because I didn't have to do anything but write the post.

And such is the case with this post, and a trio of succulents she bought.

Iced Coffee As Good or Better Than At The Shop

Iced coffee.

Or if you want to call it a fancy coffee shop name go ahead.

I just call it another excuse to drink coffee all day long.

I've tried a few other recipes from time to time and never found one I'd make over and over again.

So I perfected my own.

Cake Tester Winner (s)

First of all, thank you to everyone who entered to win one of daughter #2's lampwork bead cake testers. 

But there can only be one winner. 

Well usually.

But not this time. 

This time there are two winners for the one cake tester I am forcing my daughter to make for me to give away.

Antique Oak Table

In the early days of kids and dinner, our home had an antique round claw foot table that was 100 years old and made of oak.

We bought it with the typical four press back chairs that had caned seats.

This was at our first house and we used it as our kitchen table.  We bought it from an elderly man named Harry Peterson who went to auctions and refurbished furniture, mostly oak pieces.

Grand Central Station Sign

I had this metal Bon Appetit sign hanging in the breakfast nook for about 20 years.

Then last fall I made a Dairy Scale sign and Bon Appetit went behind a door.

VIP Paint Tote (Very Important Parts)

I spotted this wooden tote at the end of a driveway at a home that was having a garage sale. 

It was with the pile of free stuff.

Free?  Why yes thank you very much. 

I hopped out and walked directly to the tote and picked it up.

Then I went to pay for something that was free because I had to know why it was in the free pile.

I mean holy moley - totes are like wooden gold to me, there is always a use for them.
