Weekend Fun!!

I had to share some of the things I accomplished this weekend!! It rained and rained here, so it gave me a chance to catch up on housework and complete a few projects I had started.

I had a chance to go to a Farmers Market a few blocks from my apartment, despite the rainy weather, it was a great turnout!.

I apologize that the picture quality isn’t great…I bought two succulents – only $3 each!

Some cat grass, because I always spoil them…

A bushel of green beans, which I made last night & they were delicious!!

Some spices, which I made on my chicken last night as well, it was a citrus herb, delicious!

And 3P’s Sinus balm.  I’m still on the fence if it was worth the $8, but I have sinus headaches ALL the time, so I am desperate for any relief!

Next is the finished product, I had an old fish bowl from my mom’s and decided it would be a great addition to my succulent addiction! 🙂

I first placed the succulents in how I wanted them, then filled around them with the rock, and added a little more soil! So far they are doing great! 🙂

My final project took a lot of work, but it was definitely worth it!! I came across the random section of fence in an empty lot while walking my dog.  My neighbor (and longtime friend) was gracious enough to let me borrow his pickup to haul it back home. It was about 7 ft long originally, I used a hand saw to cut it down to size.  I wiped it down as well as I could, and then whitewashed it!  I used a 50/50 mix of white paint and water, and used about 3 coats.  Below are the pictures of the process, as well as the finished product!

I’m fairly certain my friends thought I was crazy when I told them my idea…but it turned out pretty great – if I do say so myself! 🙂

I want to encourage each of you to get out and enjoy this weather, visit any local markets, and don’t be afraid to try something new!!

Always,

Meg

  1. Great job with the fence! And the farmer’s market is always a great place to be on the weekends. I like the way you re-purposed the fishbowl as well.
