planter wall

dumb things I want for TS4
  1. the ability to name cowplants
  2. the ability to bulldoze lots from map view
  3. child support
  4. inheritance
  5. laundry
  6. the ability to change the opacity on makeup
  8. better, more plain, swatches on base game beds
  9. real garage doors
  10. cars (they don’t even have to work, I just need the aesthetic for houses)
  11. graveyards
  12. sims 3 traits (the really dumb ones): coward, brooding, diva, technophobe, hates the outdoors, neurotic, etc.
  13. really just more traits (I miss the more personality based ones)
  14. a nice, simple, bathroom sink to put in counters (they’re all for kitchens)
  15. more planter boxes for gardens
  16. green wall colors that aren’t ugly
  17. better kitchen cabinet sets (don’t even get me started on this)
  18. the ability to paint portraits
  19. actual group photos
  20. swing sets for my kiddos (and adults too)
  21. really just more playground equipment
  22. more of these new semi-interactive City Living type careers
  23. graduation ceremony for teens when they age up (a rabbit hole even)

4th summer with my tomato & cuke wall in cedar planters.  Shade side this year has baby hosta, maiden hair fern, cinnamon fern, purple Japanese fern, liquorice fern, impatience, coleus, toad lily, & begonia.  Sun side has the tomatoes and cukes in back, basil and dahlia in front, volunteer cape gooseberries and petunias, and corn salad filling the gaps to block sun from hitting the soil.

It’s been giving me cukes & toms for a few weeks already :D


Today’s brief:

| Wall Planter |

Today’s concept was suggested via a Tumblr follower who for the life of me I can’t find because of Tumblr’s stupid messages/asks setup.

Image 1: Cast concrete planter with wire hanger.

The wire is attached to the wall then the planter slides in.

Image 2: The wire crosses the top lip on the wall side of halfway and the center of gravity is towards the front. My head thinks this should work.

Image 3: Posting these somewhere between Macksville and Kempsey. I’m on a family holiday for the next few weeks but I’m trying to keep up daily posts.


FLEA MARKET FINDS - PART 1 (Spring Shabby Living)

For my Granny Sims I included shabby pattern choices, but for more Bohemian types there are also some brighter, fun patterns to choose from. These are re-creations of my old TS2 Spring Shabby Living objects. Everything required major reworking so you can say these flea market finds were definitely repurposed!

This set includes 11 objects -  armchair, loveseat, sofa, chandelier, coffee table, and clutter! (knitting basket, needlepoint project, keepsake box with treasures, faded art in antique frames, wall planters, and a pot of daisies). All can be found by typing tkangie_FleaMarket in your search box.

Files can be downloaded separately or all in one .rar file. I hope you can have some fun with these. I also have a bedroom set to rework and hope to get to it before spring is over.


Recolor or take my files apart and remake or improve them, but please give me credit for the originals. A link back to here would be lovely but is not mandatory for your uploaded photos. I just like to see if anyone uses my creations.


September 3, 2015 - back in July, while in Hong Kong, I bought three small wall planters for 12 HKD each (about 3 CAD). Yesterday, I finally had some time to install them with my three philodendron silver pots. I’m glad that the nursery pots fit nicely in the planters so I can easily take them out to be watered and not worry about stains on the wall.

The Honey House, Chapter 18

The Lion Tamer

The matchstick fort was just as Negan had remembered, except of course for the frost that glazed the blades of grass and topped the wooden beams to remind everyone that winter would soon be here. He drove right up to the gate and climbed out of the car, leaning one hand on the door frame while the two guards trained their rifles in readiness. He’d never spoken to either of these women but he could see the recognition slowly sinking into their eyes as their lips spread into easy smiles.

“Ladies,” he nodded with a panty dropping grin, or at least that’s what he liked to think, when he turned up the charm, not that is charm had been working too well in these parts the last time he was here.

Without another word the women scrambled from their post and the gates began to creak open wide enough for him to drive inside the walls. The planters weren’t as green as they had been but it was still just as beautiful and it still had the same feeling of magic whistling between the long rows of washing lines.
