My Indoor Water Garden

How to make an indoor water garden for summer. I used my old soup tureen which I haven't used in maybe 15 years so I took a chance that I'm probably not going to use it this summer. ha ha
I bought some water plants. These water hyacinths are perfect for the job. I looked up water garden plants on Google and found a place that sells everything needed for water gardens, but then I noticed that Amazon also sells live plants. 


See the top of the soup tureen? It's a duck! And we have outside ducks now also. Ducks are so fun. You can't help smiling when you look at them. They are funny little creatures with their webbed feet and their bills.

Anyway, any large bowl will make an indoor water garden also.




I love seeing the live greens in the house. These water hyacinths are easy to grow also.


Hope you are enjoying every minute of your summer. I am. You know that the summer is short!

Flamingo Wine Gift Bag

Flamingo Wine Gift Bag

Easy to make gift bag for wine from a placemat, believe it or not. Easy. You could actually glue this bag together also if you don't sew. However, if you sew it's only 2 seams!!


Here is the bag itself.


I bought this cute flamingo place mat at Kohls. I love flamingos. They SO spell summer, don't you think? Yes, and Florida. :)


I folded the placemat over with right sides together and sewed the bottom and side closed.


See the inside?


Open it up and stand it up and make a little crease on the bottom corners, like this.


Then stitch it across.


Trim. Do other corner.


Turn inside out. Glue a rope handle on. I use Fabri Tac glue because it's waterproof and holds well.


Bingo. Instant wine gift bag!


Here is another wine bottle gift bag idea. It's not really a "bag" but it's certainly a "wrap".

Decorating with Bird Cages I love bird cages. I have lots of them. When I like something I tend to "gather" lots of them. :)



Have fun this summer.
