NORTHWOODS SCRAPBOOK : Sharing a love for cooking, gardening and paper crafting from my cozy home on a bay in the Northwoods.
Oh, that looks so fun! Love your sweet photos, Carrie! Such cute action shots and your patio looks lovely :) xo Karen
Thanks Karen - summer fun time & bubbles - sometimes those simple things are the best. xoxo
Simple pleasures, indeed. Such a great action shot. The shadow tells it all. Great fun! Best wishes,Tammy
Thanks so much Tammy! Happy summer!! ;) xo
What fun! I love the shot of Ruby!
Action fun shot! Lol ;) xo
Great pictures, bubbles are the best :) What is the floor part of your outside space made of ? Is it tiles ? Looks really pretty. Ours is patio and lots of weeds in the gaps grrrrrrJill xo
Thanks Jill! It is tiles over wood decking. The former owners did a treated wood that needed to be painted (couldn't be stained) so we had to paint it really often due to it peeling in our extreme weather. So we found these snap tiles (also easyto cut) and put it over the wood deck.They have holes for rain to drain through to wood decking and drains through that too. It's a floating floor - no edges - so it shifts with our extreme weather. Can expand in heat and contract in cold. I think we maybe got it at home depot online? Had it probably 4 years or so now and still looks like new!
I still love bubbles…timeless fun!! Using a fly swatter with bubbles is also fun. Dip it in the bubbles and just flick it around a little and you have thousands of bubbles. I’ve also cut some of the wholes slightly bigger too. I even tried the frozen bubble thing this past winter, but it didn’t work like the pics that are posted online, I don’t think it was cold enough.
Great idea Girlie! May have to try that flyswatter trick. And I agree that it probably wasn't quite cold enough last year (thankfuly), but a couple of years ago you could have frozen a bubble pretty easily! lol
Great photo of Ruby mid leap! Bubbles are great, aren't they? xx
Thanks Alison! And I think bubbles never stop being fun, no matter our age. ;) xo
