My new obsession is with things that spin in the wind. Look at these amazing whirligigs made out of recycled pop cans. I'm in love with them. They spin in different directions and look so beautiful in the garden, like little fancy lanterns. You too can have these in your garden just in time for Spring for $5 each OR buy 5 at once for $25 plus shipping. Click here to go to Your Healing Garden on Etsy and Wanda will fix you up.
Found these this evening at the Dollar Tree in the old Shop & Save building in White Center. There are 4 to a pack and they are really fun to play with. You hit the little pack with your fist and then it puffs up and pops out of the poutch sending a tacky inflated balloon up into the air. There's distilled water, citric acid and baking soda inside that causes it to expand.
This morning Iris' husband pulled up in front of where I work and said, "I have something for you in the trunk". I opened his trunk and there was a plate of cupcakes that Iris had made.
How did this happen and why?
Tomorrow Iris is celebrating her 71st birthday and she has been making cupcakes for it. That's the how and as for the why , well we're just lucky I guess. Thank you Iris, you are a dear friend indeed and Happy Birthday!
There were treats and a drawing for surprise bags,
Bosa Nova filled the air,
decorations everywhere and everyone who came said they had a ball .
I had so much fun putting this on for the people I care for. It was well worth all the hard work, which I couldn't have done without the help of my husband, my sister, Kerrie H., Iris and other contributors like Melinda and QFC.
Now is the time to start making Valentines. There are so many different ways to make them. This one is from a few years ago when I was into block printing and then jazzing it up with felt pens. This year I'm thinking it would be fun just to alter cards from thrift stores with rubber stamps, stickers and drawing, maybe even a little paint too. What will you use to make your Valentines?
