Note to Sophie and the Good Old Days Bunch

Sophie, there's a post called 'Anybody on here from say 10 years ago' if you scroll down. I was the last to comment on it. Nonacook, Bright199, seamommy, jeaninwa, gram_bh, beachplant were heard from. I'm know I left off some familiar members. .

Some others who were here are on Facebook or still blogging. It's about time to drag out some junk and go outdoors. I want to make hypertufa containers.

Y'all don't miss the 5" ceramic cache pots at $Tree. I bought yellow and green last year and wished I had more. They brought them back.

Nice, like the cactus too! Does it have a hoe in bottom for drainage? TFS Jan

RE: Note to Sophie and the Good Old Days Bunch

These pots do not have a hole in the bottom for drainage. I pot everything in those little plastic pots that are 6/$1 using them as a liner. When I water, I remove the inner pot and let it drain before replacing. A handful of pebbles in the bottom of the outer pot brings the inner pot even with the rim and helps drainage, too.

The smaller 10/$1 plastic pots are handy for rooting things or starting one big seed like Pride of Barbados or Castor Bean. If I'm doing plants with shallow roots, I recycle yogurt containers.

Thanks, FE! I was just telling DH we need to make some tufa stuff. I am so ready for winter to be over once and for all. Yesterday and today, temps have been nice, but dare I believe the arcticness won't return? :p

Sophie it is so good to see your name here again.
I remember you often and think of all the 'good stuff' you had before you moved. I have been really busy lately and have not posted as much as I used to. Please,please come back and tell us what you are making and doing now

Sophie it would be good to have a Good Old Days Bunch

RE: Note to Sophie and the Good Old Days Bunch

Hey, y'all! A reunion would be great!

Nona, I don't get out curb shopping nearly as much as I did back then. Sure miss my truck. And I still kick myself over that pink piano I had to pass up.

BTW, I was spring cleaning and came upon the junk train notebook I was supposed to send you. Never trust a man to run your errands. ;)

With mom's passing it's been hard to get motivated. And we are renting now but I have been buying parts to make some plate flowers. Just doing a search to see if everyone is still using GE Silicone ll. Like those pots.

I love Dollar tree, stopped this week and picked up 14 pairs of flip-flops to make door wreaths for our community garden plant swap. 7 pairs per wreath. I tried them without a back but they are too floppy so gluing them on straw wreaths salvaged from the resale shop trash pile.

Tally HO!

RE: Note to Sophie and the Good Old Days Bunch

Ditto....I am another one. Been here a long time and just returning. Looking to do some mosaic art.

RE: Note to Sophie and the Good Old Days Bunch

I've been on here several years, but not as long as ten. I lurk more than I post. Don't know why. I come here almost every day to see what's going on. I've been very busy making and selling garden art flowers, solar lights and other garden items. Also have had 3 surgeries in the last year so that has taken a toll on my energy.

I think I started coming in to GWGJ about 2000 when I got my first computer. I am sure I had a different name. Lost my password and had to change. Might have been Tucker. I do not remember. I remember Jean in Wa and Wonder where Wendy is Do you all remember the Blue Moon night we all did some thing special and had an online party? I think it was 2004 or 2005. I had so many picture of stuff we all did back then but lost most in a computer crash. I have learned to back up.

Wendy is still in the PNW, precious as ever. Every full moon I think about the Blue Moon party.

Every now and then I run across a picture from the mid-2000s someplace that I seldom go any more. I don't know why I didn't save more or at least save them where I could find them again.

The server where I put everybody's recipes finally dropped me off. I salvaged some of it, including one of Wendy's recipes.

RE: Note to Sophie and the Good Old Days Bunch

Hiya! I was here years ago, had so much fun and inspiration with everyone ;) I'm happy to say that GE SILICONE 2 is the BEST! Every bit of stuff I glued with it out in the yard is still there (more than 10 years!!).... most of the metal, wood (like chairs) are gone. I popped in because I have a bare spot and needed inspiration. It's so cool to see this post right up front! ~~~~waves~~~~~
