My Week

While Storm Fay was in town visiting I got a lot of stuff done.  The results are pictured below.

Keepsake Box 

My mom got me this keepsake box last year for the wedding, I know I should have got this done months ago but I finally finished it while the rain was here.

I then moved on to planting seedlings in a plant box.  The seeds sprouted within 3 days!  They grew like weeds!  he he :)  Jim made his garden larger and he planted my little seedlings today, I hope they make it.  See, here in Florida we can have a garden year round, I LOVE IT!

Topiary in My New Pot

I found this clay pot at the HUGE 75% Sale at Pier 1.  It was regularly priced at $69.99 and I got it for $12.99!  And then yesterday while at Lowe's we found this beautiful topiary and I had to have it for my pot.  After planting it I designed circles with river stones and made a simple design.  This helps keeps the soil moist, and makes it look lovely.
