Succulent Wreaths!

I made this wreath over the weekend. I attached the pots with twine, then spray-painted the whole thing.
  It works, but I knew I could do better. Bob loves it though, so this is what matters.

My coworker also loved it, and requested a succulent wreath. I decided to up my game, and this is the result (two photos because the flash does mess with things):

Honestly? I like the second one better, but I think the first one will last longer. We'll see!!!

The second wreath was made by taking a wood circle, attaching spanish moss with thread (cost: $6) and threading on succulent cuttings (cost: $7-- I used some cuttings from our yard to supplement).

Sister-in-law, meet chicken.

Nothing says "I love you, sister-in-law" quite like a chicken running into a bedroom at 9:15 in the morning.

Oops. Escapee from the kitchen where I was looking at her to make sure she was ok (had two matted feathers).

She was giggly (the sister-in-law, not the chicken. The chicken was freaked out.).

July 3rd annnnd rain

I love the Pacific Northwest. Truly. But part of the reason why we are more than ok with the rain during the late fall, winter, and spring is because it results in beautiful summers. So, the temperature is up there (low 70s, nice!), but WHY is it still raining?

- Me  <-- blogging from my kitchen where the window is currently getting splattered with rain... on JULY 3rd. Sigh.
