Sewing Machine Caddy

Last week was my birthday. This amazing present was a gift from my mom. It is a sewing machine caddy. She told me she saw it in a store, took photos, and then went home and recreated it without a pattern. It has a place to hold all my little odds and ends, and even a trash bag.

And did you notice that the pattern is polka dots and butterflies. Thanks for this great gift mom.

Container Garden

In between T-ball, school fundraisers, camping, birthday parties, and work I managed to finally start a garden. I have been wanting to do this since we moved into our house almost three years ago. Using portable planters I started this mini container garden. I have two tomato plants which are doing great. I also planted soybeans, cucumber, and lettuce. The cucumber leaves just started to push through. Very exciting.

I found this yellow Adirondack chair out on the street when I was walking the dog. So far it is just holding some plant bags but I think it has real potential. I plan to paint it white to match the chair in the above picture.
