My name is “Buster”. My elderly owners both passed away and I need to find a home. I like staying inside with people but I go outside too. I have a chip implant in case you
misplace me. I’m around six years old, neutered and house trained. I just need
to find some one so I can be their friend.

 If you would like to meet me, I’d love to meet you!  Please call Eric at 972 801 7842,  leave a message about me , and Eric will return your call.

Unique Hanging Terrariums

One of the unique things that we saw at the District X Convention on Thursday , November 8th, was a tree of hanging terrariums  filled with Bromeliads and Tillandsia  (“air plants). The glass balls were filled with  sand  on the bottom and  the plant was  just lying on top of the sand.  The speaker used a “bottle tree” that she had painted silver to display the hanging terrariums. 

I did some exploring on the Internet to see if the glass holders were expensive and was surprised to find 24 of the teardrop shaped holders for only $32.00 on Amazon.  They were not so expensive after all.  You can find a variety of bottle trees on eBay or Amazon that are fairly reasonable in price or you could create your own.

Thank You!

I would like to say, “Thank You”, to all of  the SGC ladies who provided baked goods and/or worked at the “Sweet Shoppe” during the rummage sale last weekend.  All of the items looked delicious and I know that everyone who purchased   goodies enjoyed them very much.  I appreciate all the hard work that went into making the bake sale a huge success!

Now let’s all work to make our cook book project a huge success as well!
