Family And Faux

Friday Sept 1st –



Due to happening of the previous night, which may or may not have included running a red light, getting the flash of the camera and knowing a large fine would be arriving in the mail, I wanted to earn some money πŸ™„πŸ˜

The task assigned to me?
Gardening… 😬

3.5 hours of that later and it was as done as it can be for it only being the beginning of fall but it was more than enough for one morning πŸ˜‰

Anyone know how to grow basil and mint, all winter long??! πŸ€”

DIY Polaroid Display πŸ“·βœ‚οΈπŸ’•


During our stay in Canada I seen a little Polaroid display that I liked but as I said, it was little.

β€’ Self adhesive wallpaper/Drawer Liner
β€’ Scissors
β€’ Strong double-sided tape
β€’ Duck tape or masking tape

(Size and binder clip number vary depending on personal preference.)


Thanks to my good friend Mel I already had the lovely gold binder clips πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

I’m sure you could find them at a number of places that sell home/office goods or at a craft store.

I love marble and marble look things so that of course was the drawer liner I chose, rather than leaving it plain.

I got the idea in my head that I should try a DIY kids kitchen made out of a dresser/table from a second hand store and then attempt to sell it.
