POP Rocks!

Mama L found a super cute gift idea for those Dads, Grandpas or any Father figure in your life.

Supplies Needed:
Bucket or Flower Pot
Tootsie Roll Pops
Sugar Daddy's
Tissue Paper
Foam Ball
Pop Rocks

1. Take your foam ball and cut it in half
2. Place the 1/2 ball in the pot/bucket
3. Cut out squares approx 2" x 2" of tissue paper
3. Poke a sucker through the center of a piece of tissue paper and into the foam ball. Continue until the ball is full of candy
4. Using one of those florist card holders stick in your package of Pop Rocks

Mama L made these for Papa J, Grandpa, my brother and even my hubby. She was in Pop Rocks production for a few days.

I know the guys will love them! What are you going to make for your guys?

Free to Fab

I know, I know, we've been on such a garden fix lately, but it's that time of year! Roses are in bloom and chickens are hatching.

I do have a few new recipes that I'll be posting soon - but until then here is another fun garden idea.

My parents were driving through their neighborhood on trash day and stumbled upon someones old swinging bench that was put on the curb for pick up. They stopped and hauled it into the back of the truck knowing that they could do something cute with it.

And here it is...

Mama L painted it red and bought some chain. Papa J hung it on the fence and it now is used as a cute potting table to display plants.

What free to fab ideas do you have?

Refurbished Chair

An old chair refurbished into a garden gem!

Mama L found an old chair and thought, What can I do with this thing?

Well. here it is. First she painted it a cream color and gave it an aged wash with a dark brown paint. She then wrote a few really cute sayings on the seat back slats, painted some ivy, attached a cute painted birdhouse and planted the seat in moss.

It adds a little English Cottage feel to the garden.

What can you do with an old chair?
