Moss Pots!

The long overdue tutorial for the moss pots is here! Please excuse the photos. I was using my old phone to snap some shots, at night, and well, lets just say they are less than worthy of Better Homes and Gardens.

(Instead of the "Welcome" mushroom, I have added small rabbit lawn ornaments to the pots in my living room.)
Alright, let's get the show on the road.

Items needed:
 1. Sheet moss
 2. Soil (I used top soil as moss tends to like the dirt cheap.)
 3. Sand
 4. Pot/Container
 5. Any type of decor you wish.

1. Line the base of the container with sand.
2. Mix remaining sand and some soil together and add as your second layer.
3. Top off with more soil. At this point you can set up some "terrain" if you wish. (I.E. dips, curves, hills, you know...)
4. Water the soil until moist.
5. Add your moss. Remember to press it into the dirt a little to help it adhere.
6. Finish with your decor.

Enjoy and don't forget to water! I found that using a spray bottle to moisten the moss works well.

Sharing The Lime Light

(or in this case it could be sunlight, or candlelight, or carb-lite)

Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

     As I have previously mentioned in passing my younger sister Heather writes her own blog called View To The Point where she reviews restaurants, gives helpful cooking tips, etc.That being so, we have decided to join forces every once in a while and combine our interests in order to provide you with creative ideas. We are not one-hundred percent sure as to what we will be covering since we are still in the planning stages, but as of thus far we are thinking about recipes, catering tips, decor ideas, party planning help, and perhaps even some health and body DIYs.
     As always, if there is anything you would like covered, or something you want to share. Go for it! We would love to hear from you.

My Mom's Birthday

As I mentioned earlier my mom's birthday is really close to Mother's Day. This being so we celebrated on Sunday. By we I mean my mom, sister, her husband, my boyfriend, and myself. Being that my mom is wildly in love with Westies Heather, my sister, and I made a vintage inspired pennant banner that was held in place by two Westie silhouettes. To top it off Heather made a simple square cake with another of my Westie silhouettes to pull the whole thing together. And now I get to shamelessly plug my sister's blog by re-posting her link to the cake picture. As for the gift, my sister and I took pictures of ourselves and put them in a frame that just screamed my mom. I will be sure to post some when I get more time.

Mother's Day

      I don't post my Polyvore ideas here often, but 
seeing as how this is dedicated to my mom for her 
birthday and Mother's Day, I thought I would let all 
of you in on the fun.  
    Wishing all of you mothers out there a joyous 
Mother's Day. May it be full of unforgetable memories.

 Since Spring is here in full force and the weather, most days, is so beautiful it makes it next to impossible to go to work I thought I would do a few more DIYs that are very season related. So, stay tuned for more great ideas and be sure to check daily for the Tip Of The Day!

New to Owl Bee Hare

     Someone recently suggested that I try a "Tip of the Day". After about three seconds of considering the idea I decided to give it a go.

     To kick off this new adventure I am going to do a brief series on what to do with used coffee grounds; and if you are anything like me you have plenty.

Herb Garden

 This Boxwood Basil and Mint herb garden is a house warming gift for my sister. 
Want to make one of your own? To do so follow the steps below and enjoy!

Mason Jars (quart sized are shown)
Small Stones


      1.  Line the bottom of the jar with the stones. (This helps fight pooling of water in the soil.) 
      2. Fill about 2/3rds- 3/4ths of the way with soil depending the length of the roots. 
      3. Insert plant.
      4. Top with soil. 
      5. Water.  
      6. Place jars in a basket and add tags tied with twine; or anything else you wish to do to make it uniquely yours.
