How I transformed a deer skull (head) into something artsy

 Do you have any of these around the house?
Ever wondered how can I decorate with this and make it work with my style
of decorating?  
This was my son's deer.  It was just sitting around.
I didn't want it to break but wanted to figure out how to display it
in a way that would flow with my decor.
I asked him can I decorate it.  He kindly said, "go for it".

re purpose of a rabbit hutch

This weekend my daughter adopted a new bunny. 
I'm know you are completely shocked!  My husband was. :)
Anyway, they gave us the outside hutch and an indoor cage.
We are keeping the bunny indoors so we had no use for the hutch.
Then it hit me.... 

I could use it as a chicken brooder. 
Then I could get the baby chicks and hen, off my back porch.
We have had situations where snakes have gotten our
babies. So we like to move them out of the coop till they are bigger.
We usually use an ugly tote on the porch.
But now we are all fancy.

summer deals on flowers

So excited...
I needed to run to Lowe's to pick up some spray paint and 
couldn't help but check out the clearance plants in the plant dept.
They had carts of $1 plants. YAY!
I snatched me up a cart and loaded it.
So next time you are passing Lowe's try to stop in and check their clearance.
You might just go home with a cart full of flowers for $11.
What an impact you can make at your house for $11.

My top 3 favorite flowers

I love flowers, they just make me feel good. Kinda like a good candle.
I have a hard time trying to find plants that work in our area and that look good. When we go to 
theme parks I make a mental note of the plants that they use and placement of those plants.
I have even taken pictures so I can remember the names of those plants.

Here is a list of my
 top 3 favorite flowers that I am able to grow.

Pentas: they stay full of color for most of the year.
They do great in pots, if planted in ground the get bigger.
They are a sun loving plant. 
One year they came back after the winter. 
They need mostly sun. I do water them every night. 
So they will need some attention.
Biggest perk; they attract Hummingbirds and butterflies.
