vegetable garden

Catherine and I had talked about planting a little vegetable garden in the yard behind our house and it seems that our project may finally be getting underway. I don't really know anything about gardening but I've done a little online research and today bought some gardening tools and tomato, carrot, cucumber and watermelon seeds. I think we may also plant a few other vegetables like peppers, squash, and eggplant plus some herbs. I'll post updates of our progress but in the meatime, these photos serve as inspiration to test out my green thumb. yum!

new project

While browsing Design*Sponge, I found these beautiful painted cardboard horses by Ann Wood.
Wood has made available 3 horse patterns that can be downloaded from the d*s site and a set of instructions so that you can make your own unique cardboard horses... I really want to get some paints and old buttons and make some of my own, although I don't think they would come out nearly as pretty as these.
