Our favorite finds from the internet this past week.
Dot (AtticAndBarnTreasures.com) – We had a blast at the county fair last weekend! I especially love walking through the greenhouse and seeing all the kids (4H ya know!) plant entries. This year there was a section for fairy gardens – so me being the curious sort just had to Google to see what I could find. Oh boy! You really need to check out Flea Market Gardening. Even if fairy gardens aren’t your thing they have tons of garden ideas with lots of vintage appeal!
JayDee (ThirdShiftVintage.com) – I’ve found a new craft I would love to tackle – creating giant sculptures of my favorite flowers! I spotted this article “This Former Musician Creates Incredible Sculptures with Flowers” and it has inspired me. I seriously would love to do this! I would make sculptures to display inside my home, and would also make some to “plant” outside in my landscaping. Painting them would also be a blast!
Laurie (NextStageVintage.com) – This is the cabin fever time of year when I get a little restless and feel the itch to paint one of our rooms. I am always seduced by paint names. Sea Star. Gossamer. Amulet. Which makes one wonder, how do they they come up with paint names?
Linda (SelectiveSalvage.com) – I happened on an inspiring story about Mary Golda Ross, a Cherokee space engineer who was one of the original American dreamers. Born in 1908, she was a member of the Lockheed team that put astronauts like John Glenn and Gus Grissom on the moon in the 1960’s. As her niece said, “she would have gone if they’d let her”.
Mary Ellen (AuntHattiesAtticVintage.com) – I can’t wait to read this amazing story of a Maine hermit.
Tina – (GirlPickers.com) – I came across these beautiful images of space taken from Earth over the last year.
Pam – (VintageRenude.com) – One of the smartest men in the world just took the advice of a 5th grader. You gotta love this! Elon Musk just took advice from a super smart 5th grader
