Umbrella Stand and Planter

I bought this Umbrella for $2 and the basket for $1 at a garage sale. Solar light from big lots $4.99 The plants were on clearance for .50 cents at Lowe's. So I made my own shade for the deck 
it was Easy, fun and cheap! :)

I wasn't sure how the plants would turn out being they were dying but as you can see with a little love and care they look beautiful!

Outdoor Ashtray

We are in the middle of doing our backyard its been a long time coming and just built a deck which hubby did a great job. (pictures to come soon) Anyway I have smokers over often and I figured why not make an outdoor ashtray. I no longer have to pull weeds and I'll be damned if I'm going to go around and pick up cigarette butts...lol
I looked up purchasing one for our deck but most were costly so I decided to make one myself.
With the great help of my new addiction Pinterest I came up with this.
I Got the pail and solar light from dollar tree. Craft letters from Michaels that I happened to have and Play sand from Lowe's $3 (which I also use on next project coming soon) and left over deck wood pieces.

I must say it came in very handy I think I will try to make a strainer for easy cleaning ;)

Love , Peace and Happiness
