|While picking plums, I saw that someone had emptied a fish tank, including the sparkly gem rocks into the grass. I collected a bunch and tossed them in the sandbox for Julia and Olaf to have fun with. Olaf likes to bury them for Julia to unbury.|
|and lovely they are. I've also made ones with tissue paper doves and ones filled with lavender.|
|From the blog we bloom here, I got the tissue paper dove idea. It's a Martha Stewart craft punch. To get a clean tissue paper punch, I sandwiched it between regular paper and I cut tiny hearts out of tissue paper by hand for the doves to carry, and then modge-podged it all onto candle cups. This candle cup is for a Christmas ornament swap! They are getting a feather ornament and some folded stars and some Klamath Plum jam too!|
|Julia's had fun with trains lately.|
|and Olaf is ever improving on his pirate ship|
Also, Ron is home from the hospital! I went next door and said hello yesterday for the first time since the accident. He's up and about, but moving slowly. I knew he was home because the hood is up on the truck! He can't do much, but he's definitely on the road to recovery. He was pretty happy to say thank you to me for helping save his life, and I'm pretty happy that everything worked out as well as it did in a terrible situation.
