I have been busy potty training my new puppy. Shes doing so much better with it then when I first got her. This morning she actually pawed at me and was whining to get me out of the bed. I let her out and she peed. Great! She has tons of energy so she constantly wants to play. She has a playmate that she plays with but she seems to want more play time with me as well and I am happy to do so.

Right now shes sleeping, thank God cause I need a break!!!!! I swear its like having children. I also have a ton of laundry to do today. I also need to go to the grocery store and go pay the $100 for my sons summer school....He flunked algebra and has to take summer classes. I hope he learns a lesson here and doesnt flunk anymore classes. He did flunk science too but can make that up during the school year- thank god!

Spoon & Forks Recycled into a wind chime

My sister in law told me to put a wind chime next to my garden to scare animals away..I didnt have one so I looked around the house and found some items I already had at home that I didnt use. A floral tin container, some forks, spoons, an old round car part nut, some fishing line. I hung it from my headless scarecrow for now. I am going to hang it from something else and put flowers inside the container. It is a bit hillbilly but hey it chimes so at least it actually works. I love to recycle.

Baby Robins

A Robin built a nest inside this wire watering can basket on my front porch. There are new babies inside now. I was told that it is very unusual for a Robin to build a nest so close to someones house. Pretty cool!

Pillowcase Apron & Little Girls Dress

Found this picture of a vintage pillowcase apron - cool!
Found a picture of a vintage pillowcase dress online

I have been looking online on how to make an apron out of a vintage pillowcase, very cool idea. Of course any pillowcase will do. Its a very creative way to recycle.,I have also found on ebay that people are making and selling little girls dresses made out of vintage pillowcases. Very cute if you have a little girl. My cousin makes and sells them on ebay as well and I guess shes selling a ton of them.
