Walt Disney World 2019

Tomorrow is the big the day, Katelynn will fly with her school band to Florida. This will be the fourth time for Katelynn being in Walt Disney World. But it will be the first time without us parents. She’s growing up so fast! 😦 πŸ˜‰ Katelynn’s band won’t march. But they still will have a good time seeing other High School bands marching in the parades. There will be also a few local bands from the DFW Metroplex.

The First Narcissus of 2018

Despite the cool rainy weather, it stayed above freezing inside the greenhouse. The Narcissus doesn’t seem to mind the cooler temperatures and slowly opened its blossom, yesterday.Β  When the ground dries I have to lie down some mulch and stones. It will prevent, that I have to walk through puddles and mud in the future. But this morning, I managed to capture some photos of the Narcissus without getting my feet wet, when I walked over to the greenhouse.

A Candle Jar For Every Celebration (2): Valentine’s Day πŸ’—

πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’žπŸ’—πŸ’ž

This morning I sprayed the jar with Frost Spray paint and let it dry in the sun. In the meantime I printed out the Mickey & Minnie silhouettes, I found on Pinterest. Once the jar was dry, I cut out the silhouettes and glued them carefully on the glass. Those little mouse tails always need a little extra attention. I usually put a little bit of glue on my finger, before I put it on the fine tails. It helps to prevent a mess. And I always can wash my hand afterwards. While the glue tried, I added someΒ πŸ’—-stickers and tinsel stems (pipe cleaners), which I purchased from the Dollar Store. Adding a tea candle to it gives it a romantic atmosphere. Now, all I need is some chocolate to celebrate the work I’ve done. πŸ˜‰

Mickey & Minnie Garden Decoration

Since about five years I’m looking for cute Mickey & Minnie garden statues. The ones I found online were either made out of poor material or out of my price range. Yesterday, I went to a local store. And there they were sitting in the shelf: Mickey & Minnie about 10 inches tall, hard plastic material, and for only $10/each. I had to “adopt” these two sweet mice, where they can make adorable decorations between the flowers in my greenhouse from here on forward. I might do something extra with them for Valentine’s Day.Β πŸ’žπŸ’–πŸ’—
