I put together another baby boo display and kept it neutral with browns, grays, creams and a hint of navy blue.
I already had the fluted metal pan and ironstone grouping in my bathroom with candles in it. I added a bouquet of dried hydrangeas from a friend’s wedding and changed out the candles for pumpkins and acorns.
I still have some baby boos on the vine waiting to be picked so I will be playing with pumpkins throughout the month. As much as I love fall neutrals I envision the next display with pops of fall color!
Back in January I shared 8 Things I Want My Blog To Be in 2015. Number 2 on the list was to give my readers practical ways to make life a little easier. To that end, I have designed a little series I’m calling “A Little Bird Told Me.” The feature will be at the end of various posts and will contain random, helpful information. Some will be a little kooky, some may seem obvious, but all will be tried and true tips that I have learned and put to use in my day to day life. I don’t claim to be an authority on the subjects I will cover. From crafting to cleaning, from hygiene to mental health I’ll share a mix of life hacks that have worked for me. Here’s the first of many…
Yep! Simple but true!
As always, I’m so happy that you took the time to read my blog. I hope that you have a beautifully creative week!
I strolled around my yard this morning with my camera while it was still halfway cool and caught some summer sights to share with you. One of my favorite things about summer is having fresh, delicious tomatoes. We (and by we I mean my husband) always plant both cherry tomatoes and big tomatoes. The cherry ones are always ready to eat a good 2-3 weeks before the big ones so having them helps me be patient for the others.
The yellow cherries are my absolute favorite. They are super sweet and bursting with flavor. Last year all we could find were the yellow pear-shaped minis and they were disappointingly blah. But this year we’ve got the good ones!
There’s a BLT with my name on it once this pretty thing ripens up.
Speaking of pretty things, isn’t Bella gorgeous? She belongs to my next door neighbor but she visits almost daily.
This morning I believe she had her eye on these:
There is a family of bunnies living under our shed. I enjoy watching them. They’re cute ~ as long as they leave our produce alone. So far, so good.
This plant will soon be covered in Baby Boos (little white mini pumpkins). We (husband) plant them every year and occasionally the bunnies will eat the blossoms.
Last week my husband and I were relaxing in the living room. I stood up to go to the kitchen and something caught the corner of my eye.
Yep, this bat was hanging out in our living room for who knows how long before I noticed it. It’s the second one this summer, so my husband grabbed the phone and called animal control. While we waited for them to come get it out of our house, I grabbed my camera and got the best shot I could without getting too close. Gross, right? The woman from animal control commented that he was “a big one” then scooped him up in her net. Apparently she had been out on several calls already that night from other people with bats in their houses. Now I walk around scanning the walls with my eyes because you just never know!
