Thank You Martha Stewart – Patio Inspiration

16 May

On the 13th, Martha Stewart’s Organizing Tip of the Day included some Bottle Beauty.

Bars and buffet tables must be adequately lighted, but they’re often located far from electrical outlets. An easy, inexpensive solution is to gather clear apothecary bottles and fill them with lamp oil and wicks. Arrange the bottles under a large hurricane for protection; we set these on a sturdy glass cake stand (make sure the bottles are evenly balanced on the stand).

This had me thinking about spending quality time on the patio this spring and summer.  Small details like this can certainly turn a nice night into an enchanting one.

First things first, enchantment can only be enhanced by a little bubbly.  The packaging adds something special.

Here are some dreamscapes – patio style.

7 May

On 1 May, Martha had a clever Craft of the Day, using driftwood as a shelf.

It was rather timely since Nate cut down a tree in our backyard that was dying and invaded our neighbor’s roof.  The result is great, but also left us with some logs from the trunk that are screaming for a project.
