Springtime at the Garden Centre

Plants enjoying the sun in between the greenhouses! :)

These are plants that the transplanters repotted about a month ago and now they are starting to bloom! In the mix you'll a few different colours of pretty petunias.

My favourite greenhouse to wander into is the one with the portulaca in it. They are blooming too, and when you walk in it looks like cake frosting on the tabletops!

Squirrelly Sunday

How CUTE is this little guy? I stumbled upon this shop when I was in the forums one day and I couldn't resist sharing it with you. The shop is called SavageArtworks and this person is a fellow Canuck :) To check out more of their Etsy shop, just click here.

Woodland Friends Treasury

This is only the second Etsy treasury that I've been in; the first one was made by Bonnie from BontonVintage (thanks Bonnie!).

Well this time, I was smart and took a photo of the cute Woodland Friends Treasury by my fellow teammate AmandaFenniak. If you like looking at the Treasuries, be sure to check out the items in this one before it expires!

Fun Packaging

I got a parcel from a friend overseas and the bubble wrap was extra special!

The bubble wrap reads, "BAGS OF PROTECTION ( Specifically designed to protect your goodies, this pillow-tastic bag has been inflated by crack members of our Special Air Service using supremely squishy air. And unlike pesky polystyrene, it's fully biodegradable."

I thought it was very clever!

Sunday Spiderbite :E

I found this Etsy seller in the forums this past week and was thoroughly amused by what I found in their shop.

This item is a monster diary that you can use to keep your worries for you. Let the monster do all the worrying and fretting, all you have to do is write them down inside! To view more items in Spiderbite's shop, click here.

Summery Drinks!

Well with all this lovely summery weather we've been having, why not try making a watermelon keg?

It looks like a great project for DIY'ers or wanna-be DIY'ers (like me!) I am definitely going to have to try this out at a BBQ or summer dinner party so stay posted to hear if mine worked or not.

Off to find a watermelon ... :)

Circle of Friends Award

Many thanks to Cara from Cara's Scrap 'N Stamp for giving me the Circle of Friends Award. It was such a sweet surprise!
The conditions of accepting this blog award are for me to list 5 things that I like to do. After making that list, I am to send along this award to 5 more bloggy friends that I would like to learn more about.

Here are my bloggy friends:

Joan (ASecondTime)

Anna (Baloo2662)


Julie (Julie's Jewels of Thought)

TLouey (Running With Scissors)

Five things I love to do:

1)Paint outside in the garden in the summertime, drinking summery drinks and getting lost in time on a project.

2) Hiking! Someday I would like to do the West Coast trail and Kilimanjaro.

3) Skiing- I like being outdoors but I don't like being cold. Skiing gets me outside in the winter and keeps me warm at the same time.
4) Pets- Furry, Fluffy, Feathery & cute. I love them all.

5) Travelling- there's some great places to see on this planet and interesting people to meet. The best way to travel is to go visit someone you know who lives there. You will get to see and experience things that most tourists don't. If you're looking for a great travelling read, try "The Long Way Round" or "The Long Way Down" with Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. They're awesome!

Diary 2011 Project

What a neat idea!

I found out about this project via the blog of someone from my ATCsforall community and thought this was a fantastic idea so I am sharing it now with you :)

If you are an artist, poet, crafter, photographer, musician... you can design a page for this diary project. It is free to join and there is no obligation to buy a diary (although I probabywill just because it's so cool!)

I've reserved my page. Click here to reserve yours!

This Kid Makes Me Like the Guitar

The guitar has become a Walmart of musical instrument-cheap and everywhere. While I thoroughly appreciate the therapeutic benefits of music, it annoys me that lots of Joe-Blows think they can just pick up a guitar and be amazing and start a band (although I am entertained by the ones they show on American Idol during the initial audition process).

Well, I just wanted to show off the talents of young Sungha Jung who makes all of us Joe Blows feel humbled by his talents. This guy makes me like the guitar!

See some of his stuff on youtube

Sunday Shopping!

Alas! It is the end of our lovely Easter long weekend (unless you are one of the fortunate people to get tomorrow off) and I thought this find was appropriate for all of us heading back to the daily grind tomorrow. This comes from a shop called "gotmojo"in Maryland. If you'd like to see more, just click on the photo. Enjoy!
