BOUNTY!

😂 Not sure why my garden's bounty is so slow in coming this year. I started most of my plants indoors and the actual garden looks great!!!!

2 1/2 oz TERRARIUM JARS

For a few weeks I've been seeing these baby plants growing up our walkway and thought how adorable they'd be in a terrarium. I finally followed thru with that idea today and planted them in two mini 2.5 oz jars. Also, to fill some of the space, I included tiny shells.

I LOVE terrariums. To romanticize terrariums, they've also been named Fairy Gardens. 😍

I hope these little guys are easy to care for. And trimming will hopefully keep what normally are fairly large plants on the small side.

DIFFICULT TIME

My poor beagle's not too healthy. Last week she suffered congestive heart failure. It was horrible, especially at night. It was a very long week, last week. But she's a strong girl and with a lot of help, she fought hard to stay with us.

With her hard work at the animal hospital, great caretakers and strong meds, Hazel's home. She really doesn't have much more time.... (And she really isn't the same.)

So, no more free-ranging it around the huge backyard, woods and swamp. She now needs to take it easy. But to help, I take her for walks around the back, so she can "keep tabs on things". Took these photos during this morn's walk.

POPCORN GROUND COVER ROSES

After the beautiful flowers fade, I am going to plop this into my garden and see how well it does. Summer'll be no problem but it the winter that is unpredictable.

ARRANGEMENTS

I've been doing floral arrangements for a while. Recently I gave an arrangement to a women's group. It was then and all their wonderful comments did I realize arranging flowers is not only fun but another COOL craft.

A cool thing I learned a couple years ago.... if I don't have the flowers in my garden, the flowers in the grocery store are just as useful and fun to arrange. I also realized that silk flowers give me a nice opportunity to arrange a fun vas but also allows me redo the flowers for a fresher arrangement (and adding fun live greenery gives the arrangement an extra boost).

A Few New Soaps

This is a fun soap. Like the unique way the drops pooled.

Aren't these angels adorable? I fell in love with them when I saw them.

Here are some bars cut from another loaf mold.

Really Love The Flower Mold

It's just a simple loaf mold with a pretty impression mat, but what a satisfying soap it is when it's done!

There's so much Olive Oil in the recipe, it's amazing how much the white turns yellow-ish as the soap cures.

March's Batches

These batches of soap will be available in March!

The flower mold made quite the splash with my online group and my real life friends!

People who saw these soaps below all wanted to eat them because they look like Creamsicles. However, as time goes by, the colors have been darkening. But still look cool!

Wonder Bread Soap

This design reminds me of Wonder Bread. There used to be a Wonder Bread factory, in Natick, MA. When they were baking the bread, the entire area smelled great!

I saw Missouri River Soap's idea and just HAD to try it. Fun to do. The soap ball embeds took forever to make.

St Patrick's Day Soap, Curing

I know it seems a bit early but by the time this cures (6 weeks), it will be close to St Patrick's Day.

I made the little shamrocks with melt and pour soap and tiny little molds. Took quite a while to pour and collect the little things. I also sprinkled gold mica over the top.

Just Duckie!

This is my most recent lye soap pour. I created the little duckies by pouring soap into a mold I made with silicone (yep, those little guys are soap too!).

I am so excited to see the white, blue and green inside. Hoping I didn't over mix the colors before pouring into the loaf mold.
