Putting August To Bed

I've been a bad blogger this month. I've just noticed that I have only posted 6 times for the entire month. There are reasons, really...I've been sick on and off for most of the month and have been visiting the Dr to try and figure out what is wrong with the old machine....Work has been very hectic....painting my kitchen cabinets.....and for the past two weeks, my computer is trying to die and I have not been logging on as much as normal. Wow, quite a laundry list, and here is hoping that September is a much better month all the way around.
I'm working on a quick DIY project for my planters that I am going to share shortly and I think everyone will find very helpful. I have two large planters that I found at Lowes a few months ago ...originally, they were $99 and I got them for $25 each. I switched them with some smaller ones that I had on the front porch. I'm a faux girl....that's just the way I roll....I would love to say I'm a great gardener and I plant lovely arrangements, but I like to use my limited free time in pursuit of other initiatives. I like to switch my decorating with the seasons and faux allows me to do that quickly and easily. Styrofoam can be a real mess and can get expensive for larger pieces, so I've been racking my brain for an alternative and I think I have found it. Stay tuned and I'll try to get the DIY post up later this week.

All the best,

Pin It!
