Sharing today a little bit of my thrifty shopping, decorating and gardening.
I've been trying for months to put together a gallery wall.
It's not complete but I had to give you a peek . . .
I'm totally lovin' it! I paid a whole $1.00 for each frame. Two of them had prints the other was just the frame.
My thriftiness this week included something yummy too . . .
This box of yumminess was meant for smoothies but it was still so fresh that The Cowboy and our grandson ate some with ranch.
I cooked another batch on Sunday. And then on Monday I cooked the rest. My favorite way to cook fresh spinach is sauteed in a pan that I've cooked a few pieces of chopped bacon. I take the bacon out add butter throw in my spinach and some salt and pepper. Cover with a glass lid so I can see what's going on and just let it cook. Yummy!
And, guess what I have in my garden!
My first tomato!
I did a little plant shopping to finish filling out the pots on the front porch.
The pot beside Daisy has two sweet potato vines. I was determinded this year to get some. Last year I was too late and couldn't find green only the purple. It is in a pot with a grass that bought last year for $2.50. I bought two only 1 survived. My fault I never got them transplanted.
Behind Daisy the pot with the white flowers. Which I mistakenly thought were Lantana. And actually it might be a kind of Lantana
but it's not what I remember as a kid . . .
This week I added the 'real thing' the orange and yellow I remember. The big green plant is actually 2 chrysanthemums that I bought in the fall for $2.50. I think I probably should have cut them back. They have teeny tiny blooms now but don't look like they are going to flower.
This is the pot I that I showed earlier with Daisy. You can see the grass in the middle better. I added Vinca and Salvia. I'm really happy now with the way it looks.
I've been working hard on decorating, cooking and gardening on a budget and being thrifty.
I can't wait for my next project. We're looking for lamps to make into solar lights for the patio.
Thanks for stopping in. Leave me a comment!
