A Little Crochet and More Pinterest Projects

The past two weekends were so nice. The weather was perfect for getting outside. Spring is almost here:)

I re-potted several plants including this monster aloe. All of these came from one plant (the one in the back)
I mentioned that I would like to build two window boxes and Michael ran with the idea. He started off strong by going to Lowes and getting lumber, Kilz primer, and paint.

This is how the boxes look now...hahaha

Work always seems to get in the way.

I decided to put Pinterest to good use again. 

I bought a couple of bags of small stones from Dollar General, (only used a small amount)
E 6000 from Hobby Lobby, 
and glued them onto a rubber placemat found at IKEA (cut into two smaller circles)

I originally had a trivet in mind for this project, but it looks interesting as a centerpiece

I haven't really crocheted much. I did make two squares for the patchwork. I've been wanting to post about a pair of fingerless mitts I made a few weeks ago. I know it's practically spring so I'm not sure if I'll post that pattern or not. Let me know what you think;)

 Oh, I almost forgot...I also tried a Pinterest recipe. I made crock pot chicken and dumplings and they were yummy.

For now, I think I'll finally try to get caught up with my blog reading.

I hope everyone has a peaceful upcoming week.


  1. Liz, I love your rock centerpiece. You have to look up Chicken Fried Rice on Pinterest, I have made it twice to rave reviews, and let me tell you that is something because I can't cook.
    Hugs to you,

    1. I love chicken fried rice and will definitely look it up. Thanks for the idea:)

  2. Hi Liz, The weather looks better where you are than here! Looking forward to seeing your window boxes - your hubby is clever! Love your rock centrepiece. So nice that you can spend time outdoors :) xx

  3. I'm another fan of the pebble centerpiece, I have a shallow dish with pebbles around a candle but it's a real pain to dust, this would be much easier. Thanks for the idea, Rowen@Coastal Colours x

  4. It's so good to hear from you. You are keeping your creative juices flowing. Rocks rock.

  5. Very nice! It does make a nice centerpiece. I used to have an Aloe plant, but I managed to kill it.

  6. what a nice idea!one's own little rock garden :)

  7. Great centerpiece! I love pinterest too and am totally addicted to it :) Your blog is lovely, I'm now your newest follower! Elisabeth x
