Fairy House

Great Way to Use Kitty Litter Before Your Cat Does.


Several of our "rock hound" friends, have a box of kitty litter sitting near their cutting and grinding equipment. It's sole purpose - to remove the oil residue that remains on the stones after the stones have been cut into slabs or cabochons.

It just naturally occurred to me one day that if kitty litter does such an efficient job of removing all traces of smelly oil from the surface of cut stones, it might be a great material for drying flowers!

Earth Loom Revisited!


Fall update on my garden Earth Loom!

Just finished tucking in a few flowers from a "dead head" tour of the garden! They will dry out, of course, but they will stay pretty and colorful for at least ten days in this chilly and damp weather.

A little fall color from my peony and big leaf maple. And more to come!
