As for my yarn bras they cost a whole $1 for 2 bath puffs. I saw these on someone else's blog, but can't remember it. When you cut the string in the middle you get a long tube of netting. I measured mine and it was 7 feet long. That's quite a few yarn bras. Just thought everyone would like ideas for saving money for more yarn!!

My hubby was nice enough to help with making my yarntainers. I couldn't hammer the rivets in hard enough and I'm not very good with a drill. I didn't want to damage my knitting hands. LOL I decided to do these because I knit outside a lot in the summer and take my knitting camping of course. There was no way I was going to pay $10 for one (Heck that's a cone & 2 skeins of Peaches & Creme) and I only have $8 in all 3 of these. The rivets cost almost $5, and I have plenty more to make some more yarntainers.

This is my only rose bush at the moment. I have never tried growing roses, but I transplanted my mom's after she passed away. This is the only one that survived and was my mom's favorite. She had some beautiful roses and I had hoped the other 2 I transplanted would survive.
Well here are a few of the fun things in my front garden. There are 4 baby bunnies in the back of my tiger lilies. And the eggs are a mama finch's' in an evergreen bush. Wish I had a better picture of the hummingbird. I'm sure I will have more at a later time. I love my flowers too, but the little animals are fun to watch.
