My balcony and flowers.

All those containers from the thrift store are being put to good use on my balcony. As flower pots. I planted directly in them (no holes were drilled for drainage so I can re-purpose them later).

The flowers seem to be fine and actually thriving. I’m surprised really. I thought they’d be dead by now.

A good use for novelty yarn.

Use novelty yarn for a bike seat cover.

This comfy looking seat cover uses the pompom yarn (aka marshmallow yarn) with at least one other thicker worsted weight yarn (I think).  And below, a great use for fun fur and other random yarn. Couldn’t really tell about construction on the seat, but the yarn on the handle bars looks like it was just randomly knotted, braided and wrapped around.  Also some more yarn just randomly wrapped around the frame. With flowers.

How to use fun fur on a bike.

Seen downtown in Santa Cruz, CA.  Oh, yes… Didn’t I say anything? I no longer live on the east coast.

Bleeding Hearts

These flowers always remind me of my grandma.  There were some in her flower beds along the house.  In the spring, when we would visit, we would go for a walk to see the different flowers that were blooming and smell them.
