What I’m Working On..and Independence Day….

In the U.S. today is known as Independence Day.  To many it means camping and picnics, shopping and relaxing.  For me I’ve always love Independence Day….

My taught us to be proud of living in a nation that fought for a right to govern themselves.  She often talked about the signing of the Declaration of Independence as she had a relative that signed the document…it’s seven or so greats ago and it’s a uncle but hey…we have him in our family tree.  Samuel Huntington.  When I see pictures like the one below I always wonder if one of the guys is him.

Here’s a little blurb about him from Wikipedia.  He was from Connecticut and served as governor.

We did take some time and enjoyed the weekend.  Some kids have been home.  We’ve gone antiquing.  We’ve worked outside and shopped…oh we visited our son Buck too.  I’ll tell you all about that in the upcoming week.

For now I’m going to give you a sneak peak at what I’m working on…not sewing as little of that has happened this last week.  I went shopping with Kalissa on Saturday and I finally caved to the pressure and bought…

things to make a fairy garden.

I’ve admired them for several years.  I’ve wanted to make one.  Then Kalissa and I bought decided to jump in on the fun.

We worked for a bit planting but didn’t get them together yet.  She works a lot this week but I’m hoping one night after work she can come over and we’ll finish planting.  In the meantime, I’m making a few accessories.  I can’t wait to show you.

Does anyone else have a fairy garden??

    I have two this year. I found if you plant succulents they need less water and I bring them in over winter. If one or two die I take them out and plant new ones. My granddaughters love them and play with them all the time. They play house with the fairies and little animals and you can’t forget the fairy dust (glitter). Your little ones would love them. I went to the dollar store and picked up pots for them and we went for a hike to find stones and moss. They forget to water them but succulents like to be pretty dry before watering. Good luck!

    My Goddaughter and her mother has one started this spring. I have not been to see her yet since its been done. It looks fun, but I can’t keep a plant going for the life of me, so probably not a good idea for me. I could probably help fund the Goddaughter!!
    Can’t wait to see yours!
