pumpkin planter

Allie of Little Mouse's House had posted a way cute tutorial in which she made a planter out of a pumpkin. As we scrolled past the display of pumpkins at the grocery store this past Sunday, the tutorial popped into my mind and I knew I wanted to do this activity with Ethan, too! We selected a little pie pumpkin and got to work!

Ethan and my husband picked the seed packet out during an afternoon trip to Home Depot. I followed the directions on the back of the packet and am hoping something sprouts soon!

    1. I'm so nervous nothing will sprout for us, either! I'm not much of a gardener, haha! This was such a cute idea. Thanks again for sharing!

  5. That is such a cute idea! I have to say that the way you documented the planter and Ethan's little hands look all kinds of adorables!

    1. I have a black thumb, too! I'm trying so hard to practice because I'm determined to plant a garden in our backyard when it cools down a little more. Eek. It didn't go so well last time, haha!

  9. Ce sac cartable Michael Kors est si universel qu'il pourrait plaire à tout le monde. Dans cet article, je vais essayer de passer en revue les caractéristiques principales et les éléments qui distinguent ce sac à main des autres.

    L’extérieur de ce fourre-tout Michael Kors est un cuir métallisé de laiton froncé et froncé. Si vous connaissez les sacs à main Michael Kors, vous savez que ce cuir sera doux et souple. Les deux grandes poignées supérieures sont attachées au sac avec quelques centimètres de chaînes dorées, puis les moitiés supérieures des bretelles présentent le même cuir couleur laiton.

    La diversité des couleurs et la taille utilisable de ce sac le rendent parfait pour un usage quotidien. Les poches intérieures ne manquent pas pour aider à garder les choses en ordre. Il y a des endroits parfaits pour votre téléphone ou votre Blackberry. Le zip top empêche les malfaiteurs de saisir votre sac dans un bar et aide également à contenir tout ce qui se trouve à l'intérieur lorsque vous courez pour créer ce train.
