New Ideas

 I think this falls in the 
Pretty Sure I Could Make This department.
As soon as the tongs go on clearance, I buying 5 pair and making this wreath. 
I saw it (stole the idea) from my local Farmer's Market yesterday. 
 Their flowers were so beautiful. 
How did I forget to plant easy peasy Zinnia's this year? 
 I'm pulling a Cullerton these days. 
This means I am finally knitting a shrug just like my pal KFC knits all the time.  
She's a smart cookie. This is a fun easy project and I'm loving the results so far. 
Finally, my hot weather tip for you:
buy some of this thermal spring water spray and 
give yourself a spritz every few on these hot humid days. 
Odorless and refreshing....I found it at Target. 

Have you found anything new lately?

Who'da thunk? A flip-flop wreath. I would go well with the "vodka tree" I saw in New Smyrna Beach.

I LOVE zinnias. I can't grow them here but I love their big pops of color they give to a garden especially once it gets hot and everything else starts to fade. Nothing new here......oh wait. I have a NEW grandson! It was hard to hand him over and come home last night. New babies are just the sweetest things. I could hold him forever.

Love those zinnias! What's new here is our clouds are back, and it has cooled off!

What a cute wreath made of thongs. I have not seen the spritz you brought to our attention, but it sure looks like a great idea for a hot summer's day!!

I love zinnias also! My Mom always had them planted in our yard growing up. So they make me think of her when I see them. Those and snapdragons!

My nephew's wife would LOVE that wreath!

Zinnias are gorgeous. They remind me of Late Summer and Early Fall gardens.

I love zinnias and bought seeds but did not plant them....I'll blame the wedding that is looming in the future. I love the color of your new knit :)
