accent pillow case baby DIY wooden planter multigenerational fun linen cushion covers

Good morning! Today I am sharing a fun multigenerational reminiscent (I don’;t even know if that is a word?) moment I had over the weekend as well as the DIY wooden planter project my dad and I completed last weekend featured today over at Tidy Mom. ?Here is a sneak peek of our diy wooden planter. It’;s even on wheels!

If you are not familiar with Tidy Mom, she is like a rockstar in blogland. I would love for you to come visit me over there where I am sharing the entire tutorial and final planter pictures. My inspiration for our planter was from a $498 Estate planter I found online and we made ours out of scrap wood! Oh yes, free!

Okaccent pillow case baby, now for my story from the weekend. I had a moment this weekend where I went back in time. As a kid, I always remember following my dad around the yard and getting rides in the wheel barrow. He was always outdoors either building additions on or home or cleaning up the yard. I can remember those moments like it was yesterday and this weekend, I watched my son do the same thing with my dad that I did as a kid. Our multigenerational family and living arrangement has brought back so many memories for me. Ironically, I was in my grandfather’;s workshop, taking pictures of a wooden dolphine that he made and I was able to snap this picture of my dad and son cleaning up the yard.

Totally candid, in fact I caught my dad off guard and scared him. ha. Do you ever have moments like this where you remember things from when you were a kid and those feelings stick with you for a few minutes? This was one of those moments for me. It’;s so strange how that happens. It was a fun Multigenerational moment that I wanted to share with you. I hope you all enjoy your day and please come visit me over at Tidy Mom, our planter tutorial would be a fabulous edition to our outdoor space.


I really love rope projects! Rope is such an easy material to work with, and rope crafts give you beautiful nautical themed items that you can use to decorate your home and garden. So, I recently saw this adorable tassel adorned rope basket made by Aniko, and I knew that I had to give it a try.

You gotta show love for your work community! Secretary’s Day falls on April 22. While Secretary’s Day was the original name of this holiday, the more PC term “Administrative Professionals’ Day” is now preferred.
