Color of the Month May 2018

May! It’s all about getting the garden rolling around here. We’re super excited to see everything we worked on popping up this season, and we have the veggie garden in about 3 weeks earlier this year. Last year we got a new roof and were waiting on that to be done so the garden didn’t get destroyed in the process. We saw a bee house last year and thought it was pretty interesting and cool. Our pollinator pals need all the help they can get these days. So after some research we decided to build a big giant one around Buddah. We got some old antique crates at an estate sale and I started building those together and adding more pieces. Utilizing some of the free bricks we got from our front yard project, as well as the old cedar boards from the raised beds that were rotting. We upcycled quite a bit with this house actually including some hard cardboard rolls from inside fabric bolts. There are a few spots to fill in but we’ve seen some bees buzzing about their new home already! And that brings me to the honey colored color of the month, including my artgoodies Save the Bees Tea Towel!

Fave vintage: ceramic bowl made in Western Germany, Pyrex cream and sugar. Pepsi glass in all sorts of languages, amber juice glasses, instant coffee holder, and horse chalkware. Anchored on a vintage napkin, and awesome huge gold tray.

Fave vintage: simple plaid tablecloth, melmac plates and cups and saucers, and a little brown designed edge milk glass handled bowl. A few daffodils from the yard, along with the usual napkins and silverware join the table. And last but certainly not least, an artgoodies Save the Bees Please towel!
