Freestanding Trellis - Lowe's Creative Ideas

Hey everyone! Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there!

Just me with another thing to add to your honey do list for outside!

I like many of the projects at Lowe's Creative Ideas and this one is no different. It is unusual and seems fairly easy to make. I just love climbing flowers like morning glories or clematis - don't you? This trellis would be perfect for either or both!

Check it out here!

DIY Mason Jar Solar Lights

Good morning!  

Have you been tackling all your outdoor to do list items? Well, I just might be adding to that list! I came across this project on pinterest and thought you might like them as much as I do!

I have to admit that this is the first time I have seen the technique of coloring the jars with Mod Podge, but I really like the way they look. It is very simple and has a great result.  The jars look good day or night!

I was thinking that these would like nice setting on your tables outside as well. So that would give you another option as opposed to hanging them. Well, if you want to know how it's done - follow my link!

A big shout out to Amanda at for sharing her tutorial - thanks a bunch!!!

Hope your Saturday is sunny - see ya soon!

Summertime is quickly approaching! And with summer comes our favorite footwear - flip flops!!!  If you're like me you live in them during the summer. They are definitely my go to shoe when it's hot outside. 

Sometimes you are wearing something that just makes it hard to wear your good old stand by - the flop flop.  But fear not - that problem is now solved - easily and inexpensively!

Today's post give you the know how to dress up those boring flip flops into something glamorous! I even think that these would be awesome for the bride getting married on the beach or outdoors this summer - don't you agree?

DIY Ribbon Lei Version 2

Good morning!

I promised you another ribbon lei today - so here it is!

I think this one is just beautiful and really looks like some type of Hawaiian flower! It can be done in any color combination of your choosing. I have not made one yet, but I am planning on doing one this week! 

I'm thinking I will use nylon thread or even fishing line since it is not only invisible but also very strong and difficult to break and will make this lei last for a long time. Don't you just love this version? I thought you might.

You know what to do - follow the link - and get to creating!

Big, huge thank you again to Penga at!

Have a marvelous Monday!  See ya soon!
