The Rocky Bucket

May 15th, 2012

A few weeks ago I was asked by Home Depot to shop their store and come up with a few new ideas for planters (you’ve seen the other two here and here).  I had this idea in my head that I wanted to wrap a metal bucket in river rocks to turn it into a coastal inspired planter with crazy cool texture.  I wasn’t 100% sure the idea would work but it actually did.

Here’s the quick play by play on how I made this rock covered bucket!

Scenes from Southern California

May 14th, 2012

Hey all, I had a crazy cool weekend and a mini getaway to the southern part of my state.  For anyone who hasn’t visited California yet, the South and the North are like night and day.  I don’t get down south as often as I like to, but it’s such a fun place to visit.  Palm trees, beaches, breezy tropical cocktails, fish tacos, and plenty of things to see and do.  It was my cousin’s baby shower but also an opportunity to hang out with family and friends, even if just for a 36 hours.

I met up with my blog buddy JJ from the Blah Blah Blahger on Saturday and she was kind enough to drive us down to the Newport Beach area, and we headed to Crystal Cove for lunch and some great beach views.  This is such a cute little beach hangout where you can actually rent cottages if you make your reservations way in advance.
