One of the blogs I enjoy reading is The Bloggess, an often crude, but hilariously funny blog. I love her post "Why You Should Pick Your Battles" and the video of her talk at EVO. Well...maybe most (if not all) of her posts are crude. So there is your warning: I am an old gal who gets a kick out of a certain kind of crudeness, but you may not be.
This beautiful picture is from Curbly, and she tells you how (very ;p simply) to make these glowing firefly jars. Our family has a special attachment to fireflies, especially the grandkids. (via Craft Gossip)
We finally gave in and got a yard man to mow and edge and generally keep up with the pruning, etc. He and his crew came this morning and did a fantastic job! Now all the beds have their pine straw covering and things are neat and trim again. And I didn't sweat at all during the process!
