I can't believe my little bean is already 1 month old! I decided to commemorate this special occasion by making a painted wood sign as a photo prop. Each month I will repaint the sign and take a new picture. I think this is a really cute way to track his growth and I can't wait to show it to him when he's older! Supplies: Wood plaque Paintbrush Black and white paint
Over the weekend I went on a garden tour at several private estates in Southampton. The grounds at each home were spectacular! Each style was different but some common elements were lots of hedges (mostly Boxwood), climbing ivy and roses, and meticulously manicured lawns. I returned from the tour with plenty of inspiration for my own house- even though I'll be doing things on a much smaller scale and without the help of a landscaping crew!
A while ago I posted a DIY for a macrame plant hanger. I really liked the way it turned out and I've made several more since! I decided to take the same technique and try it out on a smaller scale with this necklace. Supplies: Nylon cord Jasper nugget beads
