Favorite Quote of the Week

How many times during the week do you talk to someone and LOVE something they said?  You know, those little sound bites you just WISH you were wired with a microphone so you could catch that moment.

Here's one for you this week.
One of my friends took her daughter for a well check up, the young lady was a little over 10 years old.  Her body was starting to change and so her pediatrician gave her a pamplet on puberty.
That sounds all well and good
As the young girl and mom are driving home the girls asks her mom..."Mom what is puberty?"
Mom asked back, "What do you think it is?"
Wait for it



Girl:  "I thought it was some kinda holiday...."

Happy Saturday!

Rainbow Sherbert Delight Summer of Color2 week 1

It's been a little over a year since I've been blogging, last year I really jumped right into blog land when I stumbled on this blog, Twinkle Twinkle like a star with wonderfully themed Summer of Color Challenges.  They are weekly challenges that are so much fun, you can choose to participate every week or not.

This summer the color challenge is inspired by ice cream flavors.
Yes, that's right.
I said Ice Cream flavors!
Week 1 Rainbow Sherbert.
Whatever project I choose to complete should have bold, orange, yellow, pink and touches of white.
Mine was a simple creation of a plastic key chain.
If you wanted to complete this project, go get you some "decorate yourself key chains" at Michaels.
Use alcohol inks to color the back of key chain. Allow it to dry.  Flip the key chain over, use Stayz On ink and stamp a favorite stamp on the front.  I used matte modge podge on the back to keep it all together.

Remember I'm hosting a silly little giveaway on my Facebook and Blog page.  You could win:
 The giveaway includes this cool key chain....Come on by HERE!! for a chance to win. June 12 is the deadline.  All you have to do is guess about a picture I've posted and the big reveal is Tomorrow!!

Welcome to Wonderland

This year I have the garden I've always wanted. I had a vision for the birdbath...
I wanted to add some bedazzle....
I added some bling by simply adding some mardi gras beads, marbles and a little duckie.  And lots of ribbon. I had such a stash that I needed it was ok for me to use it here.
Remember the glass dome is actually a vintage light dome that I've turned upside down, added some solar lights inside and some mardi gras beads and tonight it will glow.

Can't wait for this evening!
Long shot of birdbath. Do you think the birds will come have a drink?
Here's the other side of the birdbath

I had the camera set on "BEACH" and the picture turned out a bit too bright on the glass dome.

This fairy was boring.  I added some more color, bling and glitter!

 She's so delicate with her toes pointed. I thought about adding "toe nail polish," but decided not to today.
A lady bug and her babies under a big stained glass hosta plant.  The bugs are eating that plant up. Must be yummy to them?
A sleepy little gnome

 A chandelier hanging in a bird cage and tied with a ribbon.
There are three of these in varying colors..wowsers!
I bought the birdcages last year at Michaels.  The color was a pastel yellow.  I spray painted it with Sterling Silver paint.  Added the chandelier--which was a xmas ornament.
 A colored glass tree-kind of. It's actually a trellis for my newly planted butterfly bush.

 The other side of the garden is more traditional, I have two statues.
1.  This Grecian Goddess watching over the herbs pots.

Do you dig the big wooden spoon, there's a fork too hidden behind the statue.  The two poles you see are a shepard's hook with hanging  plants and a tiki torch.  (I have never been a fan of the torches, but decided to try them for mosquito repellent. It works--go buy you some)
In the foreground is a solar spotlight.  I love the solar lighting we have available now!
2. the second statue is my homage to Savannah, Ga and "The Garden of Good and Evil" She was a discounted statue and you can see why--she has a smooshed face. But, that's ok.  I still love her!

The last details I want to do is add are directional signs. One arrow pointing toward "Wonderland" the other pointing toward the "Statue Garden" and then one finally pointing toward the house that says "Love Nest."
