Adding to My Summer Wardrobe

I decided to add a few things to my summer wardrobe. I have always had a love for " Magnolia Pearl" designs but alas the several hundred dollar price tags have always been a drawback.
Much to my delight I found a wonderful store at Actually I have known this seller back from my days on ebay. She had a wonderful way to transform old jewelry pieces into fun whimsical new pieces.

She has taken to altering and adding fuu fuu to items of clothing a la magnolia pearl....but without the high price tags.

These were my choices.

Have a great day !!

A Sweet Spider Lily Suprise

I am blessed with dear neighbors all around me. My next door neighbor is Kathy. Kathy's mom live just up the block.....I can see her house from here. One day several years ago, I drove past the back of Kathy's mom's house and saw a " Free To A Good Home " box lying by the street. My daughter screamed "STOP" and we quickly stopped and scooped up the box and brought it home.

The box was filled with bulbs. The plants had long slim leaves like a sword with a bulb sprouting roots out the bottom. We planted them and generally just left them alone.

This year I took special notice of the flowers and wondered what the were. Thanks to google, I found that they are spider lilly's. They come in different colors but all mine are white.

I think I'll take some to Dara's house, since I am going up to San Antonio this month for a few days.

Have a wonderful day !

Repair, Repaint, Reuse

I bought this rustic little table covered in Texas license plates several years ago at auction. I used it in the back yard to hold plants. I noticed that the wood on the top was starting to rot, so I replaced it. Only one board from the top was not completely rotted so I painted it and made a "this way to the beach sign."

I have decided to bring the table inside and it now holds a collection of kitchen chickens. The "Beach" sign looks good no matter where I place it.

I like recycling things and giving them new life.

Have a wonderful day !!
