Oops…I did it again…

O’my, what 2 buckets of seashells from going to the beach on the weekends and a gallon of $9 “oops” granite texture paint for concrete from my local home improvement store inspire me to do.

Seed Crazy…

So in my previous post, I shared my seed sorting and now that I have these seeds you might ask me, what the heck are you doing with them. Well, they get planted every where and anything from up cycled strawberry containers, egg containers, sandwich bags (well those I’m using for propagating roses) of just […]
