It's just a Spring Thing!
Welcome to Sweet Tea N' Salty Air......just lovin the new life of things that Spring brings. The air has a certain scent usually anyway it seems as though the sea has brought many fish to the canals because I can smell the fish from my home....the waters edge is about 250 ft from my door yard. In a good way though a fresh caught fish scent you know the one just before the little guy hits the frying pan.
Today I thought instead of making a traditional wreath base for one spring décor item I would use my vintage ladder.
Petunia's are blooming daily, I usually pull the dead blooms daily.
I bought some colorful artificial blooms to decorate with.....the vintage ladder gets a bit of color
A grapevine wreath also is decorated and hung on the front gate
Basil is a necessity in my kitchen , we cook allot of tomato dishes.
Behind the petunias is a wild flower that will bloom these pretty flowers soon
This rooster is surrounded by 4 different greeneries can you name them? Cause I sure can't lol I can see mint, petunias and the pink behind the rooster is a wild grow.
Green onions ready for salad tonight
And this is Powder an old hunter that loves the out doors he runs from me at night when I cage him to protect him from the wild animals of the Everglades.
How are you celebrating spring at your neck of the woods?

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
