It’s Friday Favorites Party Time, Y’all!

Are y’all ready to get this party started? For most of us under my Texas sky, we’re a week away from the start of school. It’s the last chance for many to get to that project you’ve been putting off. If you don’t have anything in mind, you can find something AWESOME here to try. And really, at the end of the day, trying something that is a little beyond our comfort zone is so important. Even if our attempted recipe or project doesn’t turn out perfectly- you still get a wonderful sense of trying something new. Of course your attitude going in should always be one that allows you to not be perfect. The advice I always give is to not compare your work to others- not even the example of what you were attempting. Just remember- the satisfaction should be in the trying; the doing and not just in the result. Push yourselves. You’ll be a happier you.

My feature for this week is Creative Flower Container Gardening from Gingham Gardens. If you live in a place like I do, where the soil is terrible (in our case mostly sticky, muddy, clay), then container gardening makes so much sense. You don’t have to just use planters that are intended for plants- there are lots of other containers that work great as well. Gingham Gardens shows some great examples.
