Hey Everyone! Hope you all are having a great day and are doing something creative. You know that being creative doesn't have to be painting or making something...it could just be doing something you haven't done before or improvising something you usually do. My mom used to say necessity is the mother of invention and inventing a new way of doing something is definitely creative. That's my thought for the day...now on to a little update.
First off, I wanted to give you an update on the hydrangeas I've been propagating.
As you might recall, I started a few cuttings back in June; you can see that post HERE.I put four cuttings in our Breakfast window and hoped for the best. I used seltzer bottles (cut in half) to make little greenhouses. I tried to keep them watered, but you know how that goes, don't you?
Of course, I let two of them dry out and they died. That's why you always plant more than you need!
I'm happy to tell you that the cuttings have grown new leaves and are establishing roots...
I'm so excited!
I've read that you can make cuttings up until October and I might just go take a few more cuttings because I love hydrangeas, don't you?
I wanted to share a little find I'm thrilled with. Can't remember how much it cost, but you know it was cheap because I don't like to spend a lot of money. Found it at HomeGoods, of course. It's a simple painted cloth rug and of course, it's washable. Plus, the colors are my favorite...blue and green. This little addition adds a little more prettiness to the room.
It looks great in my Breakfast Room. And yes, I keep my table set like this all the time. I just re-set the table after dinner at night. It's simple things like this that help keep our Breakfast Room pretty.
I know you've seen this place setting before, but it's my favorite. Fall will be here before you know it and the table will be changing up very soon.
Couldn't wait for Fall and made some healthy pumpkin muffins that taste good even though they don't have any sugar, are low fat and made with whole wheat pastry flour. I'm so proud of myself because I created this recipe myself and ya'll know that I don't cook much!
You'll have to wait for the recipe another time...Sorry about that! Will explain later.
