I also got this new plant that is a Silver Bells Chocolate Vine. Its drought tolerant and once established, it hardly needs any water. And its evergreen! I got this at Peddle Pushers nursery in Cedar Hill.
I have some pictures of things that I have made in the last week. I found this purse at the thrift store, and I dressed it up a little bit. This canvass is going on a purse, and then I covered this wire lamp shade with lace and pictures of victorian women. I also found this old mirror and put seashells on it!
I found this old office chair in the trash. Im going to clean it up put a new cushion, and slip cover on it. I also found a BIG wooden table on the curb and I was able to get it in my van with the help of my wheelchair lift. Lol. I brought it home and cleaned it up, took the top off and discovered it was from Ethan Allen! So now its at a shop getting refurbished. I was soooo excited because the technician at the shop told me the table was worth over 2000 dollars! The old saying goes true that one persons trash is another persons treasure!
