Summer summary

August 10, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Well, It's been a while since I posted.  I guess I've just been too busy enjoying the summer!   It seems to have flown by , but we have had lots of fun with our friends and family.  Here's some highlights in photos. 

 

Connor (my youngest) and I have made a few projects in the last month.  First, we made this little twig vase out of a pickle jar, some twine and twigs and brown felt  I glued the felt onto the glass jar.  He had fun collecting the twigs from under the pine trees and sorting them by size.  I worked the hot glue gun, while he weaved  the twine and chose the perfect next twig.  It was a  fast project and it turned out nce.  He wants to make them for Christmas presents.  And it looks great with a bunch of dried lavender!

 

Second, we made our first terrarium (after a visit to the Corning Glass Museum, where I got this bell cloche)!  He placed the pebbles first, then activated charcoal and finely the soil.  We planted three plants and made a path out of some pebbles.  We dug up some nice moss from our beautiful lawn ;-) and it seems to have worked out well for a first attempt.  He is already planning our next one- based on our upcoming trip to the Outer Banks, with sand dunes, grass and shells.
