Cleaning Out & Organizing Coat Closet (Spring Cleaning)

Cleaning out and organizing our coat closet is something I have to tend to pretty often.Extra coats end up in here that don’t belong and since it’s not a large space I try to make sure the kids only have the coats in here that they are wearing at the time.

Check out the video below and see how I organize and clean out our coat closet.

Spring Outdoor Living Space Collab- Whimsical Herb Planter

Last week I participated in a Spring Outdoor Living Space Collab and since our weather outside is so fickle, I had to create something for my outdoor space.A friend tagged me in a Facebook post with some beautiful artwork.There was pictures of outdoor wall art of faces and behind the wall art was floral flowers or trees growing that made the image look like hair was growing from the head.

I began to think of ways that I could implement this idea in my outdoor space.Starting off with an old vintage pew seat, I had my husband draw a beautiful image on it and I used craft paint to color the image.Next, I added a flower pot on the back that I will add some herbs too and as it grows it’ll appear as hair is growing from her head.

Check out the video below to see how it turned out.

Nesting Peeps Jello Cups

 

Was thinking of some cute and tasty spring treats to make the kids and thought using peeps in these jello cups would be cool.Funny thing is, Jala had never taste peeps until now.I didn’t think she’d like them, but to my surprise she loved them.However, she also loves marshmallows so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised.

When thinking of an option to use so that the peeps could nest, my first thought was to use cereal or something. While looking at the store for some options I came across this edible grass. SCORE!

Ingredients

Multiple Flavors of Jello preferably spring colors (Make according to directions)

Peeps

Whopper Mini Robin Eggs

Edible Grass

Tools

Mixing Bowl

Measuring Cup

Spoon

Glasses (for jello cups)

Quick warning:This sweet dessert is a bit time consuming because you have to wait for each layer to chill.There are directions on the jello boxes to speed up the chill process.I didn’t use this technique until I added the last layer of jello so, use you own discretion.

Let’s get started:

We’re going to begin with our first layer of jello. I began with the watermelon…

After prepping the jello I used a measuring cup to measure out jello to make sure every cup had the same amount (1/2 cup in each cup).Once the jello is poured in each cup I placed it in the fridge to chill.

When the jello was completely filled I began to mix up another flavor.Be sure that once the flavor is mixed you allow it to cool before pouring it in on the previous layer because we don’t want the first layer to melt.Then, you allow this layer to chill in the fridge.

 

We’re going to repeat this process for every layer.The very last layer I used two boxes of jello to make sure the jello cups were full so that when I added the edible decor to the top, It will be visible.

Allow this layer to chill and let’s add the edible grass, rains eggs and peeps.

This is a good time to let the kids get involved.I had to keep my eye on Jala with the peeps.

Hope you and the kids get to make these for spring.Pin the image below to save it for later.

3 Things We’re Saving From the Kitchen To the Garden

Today I want to share with you 3 things we’re saving from the kitchen to the garden.I know as gardeners we’re always talking about what we bring from the garden to put on the table, but there’s some items we use in our kitchen to prepare our garden for gardening season.

 

Those 3 things are:

1.Coffee Grounds

2.Egg Shells

3.Peanut Shells

 

Coffee Grounds have nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus and other minerals. Our spinach and tomatoes will benefit from the nitrogen.The other minerals don’t go to waste either.

I save our coffee grounds by holding on to our K-Cups after we use them.Remove the coffee that’s left in them and store until use.Another thing I do is rinse the K-Cups in a bowl or pot of water.This leaves the excess coffee in the water and I use it as a compost tea to water our plants.

Starbucks is Gardener Friendly 

If you’re not a coffee drinker, you can build a relationship with your local Starbucks or coffee shop. Ask them to hold on to the coffee and you can pick them up at the time you’ve agreed upon.Starbucks is very gardener friendly and you know they make coffee all day long.

Egg Shells- add calcium to the gardening soil.

Last year our tomatoes had blight and blossom end rot which we then discovered that our soil was lacking calcium.A quicker remedy would be adding limestone, but we’re going the eggshell route.

Peanut Shells- offer nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus as well.

My husband goes to a restaurant that gives peanuts to their customers.We eat the peanut and save the shells for our garden.

Back in the day I remember my mother saving eggs and adding them to a gallon of water in a milk jug.She’d use that water to water her house plants.Do you remember your mother or grandmother using eggshells and water to water her plants when you were growing up?
