DIY Inspiration

Hey guys! I’m not quite ready to share the results of my natural dye experimentation just yet… i need a little more time, so check back for that next week! To hold you over, here’s a lovely little idea from Liz of Late Afternoon:

Spice up ice water (or any beverage for that matter!) by putting berries and flowers in your ice cubes! Just drop them in the ice cube trays before freezing :)  This would be such a sweet touch for a party!

Theres a little refresher i learned at Indian springs,a 1940 style minral spa in Gyserville by where i grew up as a youngin in sonoma county, they would put slices of cucumbers and oranges in their ice water and serve it to their guests as they were having a mineral bath or mud bath or just lounging by the olypic size heated mineral pool.My mother and my best friend and I used to love to go up in the fall to swim in the pool, the best is when it’s cold outside and you can see the steam rising off the water and in to the suronding oak and red wood trees the souround the grounds and all of Gyserville.In the summer we would go to have facials and massages by their dragonfly pond,were you put cucumber slices on your eyes and listen to the dragonflys around the pond buzzing their little wings in the summer wind, they also had the most lovely buddist meditation hut where you could light insence and ring the bells and meditate next to the pond. Id love to see you do a phoot shoot there ,playing chrochet in the feilds or riding the beach cruisers they now provide. it always reminded me that no matter how old i grew ,there was a place i could go to be 1 again,just a girl and her mother swimmimg in the sun.

This is such a cute idea. But even better? Instead of using water for the ice cubes, use something like Fruit Punch (or food coloring) so they would become pink colored flower cubes!
