I spotted these cement balls at Target and I wanted them soo bad! I keep telling myself to make my own but I never get around to doing it. Maybe when they go on sale I'll buy the large one. It weighs about 20lbs and 15" wide. Drools...
My plans for making some small sized ones involves collecting vintage glass globes which I find really cheap on my thrifting adventures. Next spend the day filling them with a mixture of cement and peat moss. The peat moss keeps them light. I want to have my yard littered with them!

When I was a kid my grandfather always made Jello. It was always some sort of red jello filled with berries, I still make it today I just use sugar free jello instead. It's not something I crave but when I'm looking for a low calorie desert it's my go to.
Recently I saw a BuzzFeed food list that was called 7 Vintage Foods That Are Surprisingly Delicious and it was all Jello deserts. The one that actually got me to drool a bit was the 21st-Century Green Top Salad (pictured below). It contains sweetened condensed milk, lime juice, greek yogurt, pineapple, marshmallow, cream and cream cheese. On a hot day enjoying a barbecue this seems like bliss.

My latest obsession is looking at modernist jewelry, especially rings. I used to own a piece of vintage mexican jewelry but it got nabbed and I miss it so much. I loved how heavy it felt. I've been searching for something to replace it with but I've been very picky. I have a few things liked on Etsy, I wish I could own them all but these rings can get a bit pricey! I did find something I really liked on Esty recently and I went for it, I think it has a bit of the spirit of the first ring. I hope to start a new collection again. Do you have a piece of vintage jewelry you have been obsessing over?
