Green Onions

Did you know you can grow green onions without soil?! I recently read that all you need to do is put the white portion of the onion in water and put in front of the sun and watch them grow! I currently have 3 whites in a juice glass with some water sitting in front of the glass block window in my master bathroom. I got pretty excited when I saw the green of the onion appear! So far I don't smell the onion, so we'll see if an odor comes with more green. I don't seem to have much of a green thumb, but maybe I have a green thumb for green onions! :) Happy growing.

Finally, my ornament wreath!

I have been wanting to make an ornament wreath for a while now.  I finally went for it this Christmas, although, I made it after the holiday, but that's because I needed to buy a few more ornaments on sale.  I was trying hard to make a pattern out of it, then when I would lift the hanger up they all fell to where they wanted to, so I dumped the "pattern" out the window and just started stringing them however and in a quicker fashion.  When I ran out of room to add anymore I lifted it up and it turned out like this:

I still need to add a ribbon to hide the hanger, but I'll wait until next year when I'm ready to hang it up. Until now, it sits in the closet waiting to be hung. I would like to make a small one using bells though. I think that will be my next project when I find enough bells (currently I only have 8). I felt pretty accomplished to finish my first crafting project! :)
