Patio Water Feature
Mostly done with my little "water feature" for the patio. Little solar powered fountain with a broken fish decoration and some rocks I gathered from the yard and smashed with a hammer.

Big Plant Changes
Early this year I gave in and cut down all the pothos plant vines over the kitchen cabinets. They were just too much work when leaves would die off for no reason 2 to 3 times a year. I have started new hoya and some real philodendron plants to replace them, but it is a barren shock each time I go in the kitchen for now. While the hoya and phils don't loose leaves like the pothos, they also don't grow nearly as fast, so it will be a long ...

How to Grill Wall... Maybe.
While I would like to say this is a "How To", I am reluctant to say so when I don't know how long (or short) this grill wall will last in the outdoor weather.

I am Done.
No, the list isn't done... don't I wish. No, I am done... D-O-N-E. Yep. At least for a good several days, if not more. Hubby seems to be in slightly better shape, but I am beginning to think he will see going out of country for work to be a nice break. LOL.

Beginning the Week... Now I'm Done, right?
Monday... I started off a little slow... mostly by breaking the rod for the guest bath toilet handle while I was trying to bend it to fit around the new fill valve/tower I would be installing later,

Grill / Privacy Wall
This has been the year of landscaping around our house, and one of the few projects that I wanted to get done was a privacy divider between the front door and the rest of the patio and sliding glass doors. Not only because the lack of a divider encourages just anyone to head towards the patio instead of stopping at the front door, but also because there is no telling what state of undress I might be in behind those glass doors. Considering that my height of "dressed" around the house is a tank-top and pajama pants, this ...

Getting Spicy In Style
After the rough Saturday we had, we decided that when we found the label sheets I ordered in the mail on Sunday morning, that it was just the better part of valor to hole up in the house and re-do our spice labels.

These are, of course, just a few of my favorite or recent "Found" things, and I always keep an eye out for new old things to re-purpose... so I am sure I will post again about more "Found" items down the road.

Class it Up... Stacked Clay Pots
After my friend got me looking into Gnome gardens, I found a lot of cool pictures online for miniature gardens and broken-pot gardens. While I have enough spare clay pots to make a broken garden, I decided that these with a few chips and cracks are just as good as a "stacked garden" and quicker to put together than a carefully planned broken-pot garden.
While nice planters in the stores can cost a small fortune, since this could easily use old pots that you or friends have laying around, this could be a ...

Making Use of Dead Wall Space
From the Archives: 5/26/2011
One of the things that drives me nuts about a house is any "Dead" space. As a pack-rat with very little self-control, any space in a house that could be put to storage, but isn't... is just wrong.

Spring has Sprung
And in the foothills of the Colorado Rockies, it "springs" with what should be an audible "KA-POW"!Two days ago this was the view looking right from our front porch.And now...Of course, the only noise is the change from hollow whistling wind to a rushing sound that is amazingly like the ocean tides as the aspen leaves catch, quake, and rustle in every breeze.While lower altitudes have already "sprung", they never ...
