The weather's been pretty tough the past couple of days. Very windy, brilliant sunshine that was not photo friendly. Difficult to work outside, too. And we are under a frost advisory tonight.
But indoors, I have a new installation next to my kitchen sink that I just love. True confession = I kill ferns on a regular basis. So not sure how long these babies are for this earth, but installed in my quasi Gothic plant holder, next to the kitchen sink at least helps me remember to water them more or less regularly.
Don't mean to belabor the point, but Charisma now has two stems almost in full bloom. I'm really enjoying it as it will be a whole year before I can see these flowers again.
Purrmeister has a new bad habit. He doesn't just like to drink water from anywhere and everywhere...he likes my watering cans on the kitchen counter. I filter my water for drinking and plants because it's well water. He's just fascinated with running water and enjoys splashing around in water with his paws...what a mess.
So now, about entering to win a wonderful prize:
There are some really nice things that fellow blogger - artisans are offering as contest giveaways right now. I'll be listing a couple of different contests this week and will begin with Tara of Scarborough Seashells who is celebrating her 100th blog post with a really generous offer of either a choice of a pair of earrings or a pendant made from beautiful beach objects OR the chance to have a pendant MADE from your own special piece of sea glass.
She's so lucky to live at the edge of the ocean (this is a solid Midwesterner speaking now.) The treasures she finds along the sea's edge are just lovely...but she doesn't stop there (like I do as in putting them in glass bowls or as dust catchers on my shelves)
Oh no, she creates sterling bezel settings for them so that they either hang as special pendants or are paired up for really unique pierced earrings. So if you're interested in having a chance at this wonderful offer...head over to her blog and discover the 4 different ways you can enter to win through a drawing held on Random.org later next week.
You've got until April 24 to enter. I'd say "good luck" but I was kind of hoping that I would have the good luck this time around!? May the best blogger or blog-reader win...actually, it would be the "luckiest" blogger or blog-reader, lol!
Have a great Sunday one and all!!
