I’m working feverishly on my outdoor shower, however I have decided not to give anything away until the big reveal.
Here are some more supplies I was working with today:
All sorts of goodies I’m digging up from the shed, garage, & basement.
I’m such a dork. Obviously I watch too much HGTV!
Today was a tweaking day.
I re-sketched a new bouquet of dahlias.
I want to try again painting them again.
Learn from some mistakes.
Next, I drove over to pick up some butterfly bush blooms from my girlfriend’s house. I had a 30 foot butterfly bush in my yard and I accidentally killed it. I didn’t think it was possible since they grow like a weed, but I manage to do it. I cut it back to hard and it didn’t come back this spring. Total sadness. We are on the Monarch butterfly’s path to Mexico, so I got hundreds of butterflies on the bush. I bought a new bush, but I won’t get butterflies this year.
Anyway, I sketched and began to paint Buddleia, the Latin name for the butterfly bush.
Lastly, I added a few more leaves to the rose bud vase. Every time I walked by, I kept thinking it needed something. Whether it needed it or not, it got it! No un-doing that one. Luckily it was a quick fix otherwise I’d be adding it to my long list of re-dos!
This is my final day without the kiddos. They come back tomorrow. It was quiet while it lasted! I’m looking forward to seeing them. I haven’t laughed as much while they were away. Tonight my husband has prepared a feast. I’m off to enjoy it!
