Yay! It’s a three-day weekend for most people! Not me, but that’s okay. Anyone have any big plans for the weekend? I’d love to live vicariously through you if you’re doing something fun!!
I’m still having a borderline obsession with stenciling fabric. Check out this DIY Ikat Stencil and fabric stenciling over at The Mustard Ceiling. I”m still warming up to ikat. One minute I like..the next minute I don’t. This is beautiful fabric, painted with the honeysuckle. The Mustard Ceiling is definitely one of my new favorite reads.
I can’t seem to go to any home improvement store without purchasing some kind of plant. Today I bought a 5+ foot tall papyrus. It seemed like a good idea at the time because the label said ‘full sun.’ Well I got plenty of that. BUT..it’s likes lots and lots of water. After reading up on it I learned that the papyrus likes to be next to a pond..or the Nile River. Awesome. I don’t have either in my backyard. I’ll give it the old college try and water is as frequently as it needs. It is gorgeous though.
If you are going to a BBQ this Memorial Day, bring something a little different. How about this Roasted Beet Salad with Spinach and Goat Cheese? It looks really refreshing and healthy.
Swizzle sticks are just plain fun. I really like these ones because they have owls on them and say ‘Sunriver Lodge.’ I’ve been there! Maybe it’s time to start a cool swizzle stick collection. Buy them at Saved From the Landfill.
