  • Project: day 111: outdoors we will go/ simple spring flower arrangement/ daffodils and lemons!
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? definitely, it’s too easy not to do!
  • What I would do differently: add at least one more lemon, but it would be very cute with additional flower colors in the arrangement as well
  • Items used: Daffodils are so cheap right now, I got 3 sets of 10 at Trader Joe’s for just $1.15. I had one lemon lying around the house and saw one up for grabs in the teacher’s lounge today, but it turned out to be a very small grapefruit! Oh well, it still works! Adorable idea from: http://b-moviestar.com/tag/flower-arrangement

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

Project: day 103: outdoors we will go/ super simple tip for growing your own green onions!

The next time you have green onions, don’t throw away the white ends. Simply submerge them in a glass of water and place them in a sunny window. Your onions will begin to grow almost immediately and can be harvested almost indefinitely ( supposedly.. I will repost and let you know!).
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Would I do it again? yes! We use green onions quite a bit, so it we are able to grow our own this easily, why not?!
• What I would do differently: nothing at all! I’ll update this post in about a month or so as soon as I see some growth/changes taking place 😉
• Items used: mason jar and green onions!
great tip from: http://homemadeserenity.blogspot.com/2011/03/putting-food-by-beef-onions-and-vanilla.html

Until ipinterest tomorrow!
