Pony Buggy gets a Makeover using Crib Parts

H and I bought this pony buggy about 10 years ago in Pennsylvania .....somewhere in Amish country....I can't remember the name of the town.     We disassembled it and loaded it the utility trailer that you recently saw transformed into a She Shed.

Floral Design using a Hay Bale for the Container

Daisies are a very common flower,   but the ones I found for my summer floral design are far from common.    Aren't they gorgeous!  
I found these in the 70% off isle at Michael's on Friday and couldn't wait to get them home and use them in a summery floral design.   ( I also used a 20% off total purchase coupon too......can't beat a price like that!)
