Tuesday's Treasure 6

I’m back with a new Tuesday’s Treasure. This is such a cool idea and a super easy and inexpensive way to add some fun you your garden.  I did not come up with this idea, but whoever did, thank you. Love this.

These are so easy to do. All you need is an old vase, preferably glass, and a small bowl, also preferably glass. Set your vase down in the garden where you would like the mushroom to be and invert the bowl over the top. Done.

Not all vases and bowls go together well, so play a little with what you have available. If you do not have these items stashed somewhere at home (and I’m willing to bet you probably do), take a quick trip to the thrift store to see what you can find.

You will notice one of my mushrooms is not as bright. I used an acrylic vase and bowl with that one. They have been out in the garden for a year now, and this is how they have weathered.

Do you add decorative touches to you garden? Let me know.

Tuesday's Treasure 5

I don’t have much time today, so I thought I would share a picture of our Jasmine which it blooming. The weather we are having is the real treasure today. It has been sunny, clear, warm, and beautiful. I really appreciate that we do not have much of a winter here in Southern Arizona. It helps with the joint issues.

Enjoy your day!

Tuesday's Treasure 4 . . .

a week and a day late.

What happened to last week? I wish I knew. It came and went so fast I don’t even remember. I know there was weather involved and my sweet grandson spent two days entertaining me.  Oh yes, and we had someone come out to look at our kitchen. That of course, entailed much cleaning. A remodel may be in our future.

I did get my skunk stripe covered as well as a slight adjustment in hairstyle last Tuesday. It is amazing what a little color, trim, and shaping can do for your outlook.

After the hair, I stepped next door and found this lovely barrette. I think it would look equally beautiful on my blonde daughter or my brunette daughter-in-law. They both have such beautiful long hair. What a shame there was only one.

I"m afraid the picture doesn't do justice to the color. The blue is not nearly as greenish blue as it looks. It is much more of an ice blue. So lovely.

I found this at Persnickety's, the upscale resale shop next to my hairstylist's salon. While the customer service is always questionable, they do have the nicest things in there and the prices are reasonable.

Tuesday's Treasure 3

I got a late start this morning heading up to the GoldenGoose. I missed the lineup waiting to go in, but I also missed the crowd. There was plenty of room to browse and the checkout line was short. Somehow, it just was not the same. I like the crowd that gathers on Tuesday mornings. They are friendly bunch, showing up there to socialize as much as shop. Ah well, next time.

When I got there, I realized they were promoting Rodeo. This week is Rodeo week here in Tucson. Basically, that means the schools stay open on Monday (President’s day), but have Thursday and Friday off. Oh, and there is Rodeo going on down in South Tucson. Anyway, lots of Western stuff on display, but nothing that caught my interest. I am not that into Western.

I did find a lovely amethyst colored vase, picked it up, walked around with it for awhile, but ultimately put it back. A quick circle of the store brought me back up to the front, but the jewelry case. I always look there, hoping to find a fountain pen. No luck today. Instead, I discovered that pins were 50% off. This lovely little circle of silver leaves called my name and told me it would look lovely with some of my scarves. At only $1.50, who was I to argue?
