Visit to an Arizona feed store

We have the cutest little feed store in our area called   Pratt’s pets and feed store, which has been around since the 1930’s. Emerson Wilcken Pratt was born in Mexico but his family moved to Arizona when Pancho Villa forced them out of Mexico and many years later the Pratt feed store would be…

DIY- Seedpod sail boats

First, before you work on this project you will need an Australian Kurrajong tree. Hopefully there is one somewhere around your neighborhood. This is a good opportunity to get out there and take a walk early in the morning to see what your neighborhood has. Kurrajong trees are called bottle trees in Arizona. The aborigines…

Visit to our little red house.

  Been busy spending time up north, getting a much-needed break from the city. The temperature difference from the high country to the city always shocks me.

Dollar day do over- upcycled garden box

This dollar day do over project was just lying around my house being used as a storage container and piled with clutter. I had forgotten about it until a visit to our favorite garden nursery. When ever we make a trip to the neighborhood garden my husband and son are usually hanging out with the…
