Lying under the Lilac Tree

It was so nice and sunny out the other day and my lilac bush smelled so lovely, that I decided to create a little soft place to enjoy it all.






Then of course, just a short time after......... It started to Rain.

The Butterfly use to look like this. But I thought it would look sweeter in white.

I wanted to leave the glass rocks green, so I came up with the idea of using play-doh to protect them from the white spray paint.

It worked great. And I like the new look.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Oh what a wonderfully cozy and beautiful place to take a nap. I could actually use one of those about now.

    The butterfly is wonderful in white.

  4. Play-dough! You're a genius!
    Your hammock looks like a perfect spot to nap, read....get rained on? That's too bad, but it really is a pretty spot. (I'm getting really sick of the rain!)

  8. What a great idea using the play dough. I don't have any around here but I should get some to have on hand! I think the large butterfly looks great on the fence. I am looking for something to hang on mine as well. I wish I had lilacs. Oh it must smell wonderful over there!

  14. Would you look at that view? I can even smell the lite fragrance of Lilacs and the smell of rain. I could crawl into that hammock with a good book and be happy.
