I surf around on Pinterest when I am waiting or…
This is something I really need to try to spice up our boring cement slab yard/pool area!!!
So much FUN!!!
We can do this!!!
Avocados are delicious and very loved in our household so I was joking around with my hubby last night that I could grow it out of the 2 pits I used tonight for dinner 🙂
That said, I got the pits, glass of water, toothpicks out and prepared the pits for their long journey (few weeks/months) to becoming a yummy avocado tree.
I think the picture will show you enough detail of how it’s done 🙂
I read I have to refresh the water every 2 days so hopefully I won’t forget that 😉
To let you be part of this progress I will every day take a picture and post it. This blogging is so much fun 🙂
Finally here are the “pits in progress” 🙂
So as my previous post told you I rescued two plants today from the trash 😀
As I blogged and talked about this little adventure on Facebook, I had no idea that I would be ending up, getting my arm twisted to go “alley” trash shopping again…
We have sooooo many alleys in this area so I was only able, in 85F, to cover 4 alleys on my treasure hunt.
Well off I went, really 2 steps in the alley behind our house I found 6 picture frames and a “wreath” plastic container box…SCORE. And easy cos I could just turn around and leave it in our garage.
One alley over I found a big(ger) picture frame (no glass though) but some dunes/ocean pic (B&W) in it. Fine, mine!
Walking in the alley, made me giggle especially when I decided why not take all the empty bottles too. I go to the recycle center every 2-3 months anyway, it’s cash money baby!! Well, picked up two big garbage bags of empty bottles up while treasure hunting in the alleys 😀
I saw a lot of furniture, desks, tables, chairs etc…just needed a facelift.
Oh and all the things you can do with clothing….that’s for next time 😀
So guess what I will be doing soon…YES!!! I will start refinishing the frames and use them!!
What a fun day!!! And it was so much fun interacting with everyone on my Treasure Hunt!!!
Thank you for participating!!!
See you tomorrow, much love 🙂
On my daily morning walk I notice, while crossing the alley, that someone threw out 2 perfectly nice house plants in some old wasted basket.
I hate seeing things go to waste and I love plants so you guessed it 🙂
Perfectly goes within my budget too (don’t laugh…ah well…laugh!!!) FREE!!!
Immediately after I dropped off the puppy at home, I walked back and took the 2 plants.
I forgot to take picture of both 😉
Here is a pot I still had in the garage, with some soil too
Thrifty and free!!!
Here they are ready to go on my dining room table 🙂
Gotta look up what kind of plants they are though…do you know?
