Rainy Day(s) ....

The weather forecast for the next three days is RAIN. Since I won't be digging into the garden anytime soon, I'll be digging into this pile of lace ... no complaints here, this is one of my FAVORITE places to dig ~and play !!

Do you have any rainy day plans? ... or sunny day plans?

Weekend project

Today has been a super nice and sunny day to do some gardening and yard cleanup!!

However, tomorrow the forecast is for rain. That being said, I'm gathering all my sunshine and blooms - in the form of baubles and gems, and heading to the studio tomorrow to do a little creating.

Here's what I'll be working on ... belt buckles full of sparkle !!

I hope you have time to enjoy the sunshine and if it's not sunny in your neck of the woods ... I hope you can create some of your own indoor sunshine!!

Organic tablescape

A natural, organic, nature inspired vignette packs a nice bunch when used in a Springtime tabletop landscape.

Here I've used greenery in the form of ivy and reindeer moss, combined it with a few bird's nests and eggs. A dash of chippy painted architectural salvage ... and incorporated a bumblebee via a print. I think what really makes it click is that the tablescape is arranged very informally, there's not a lot of structure, this keeps the 'natural' element consistent with the makeup of the arrangement.

Hunt and gather around your place ... you'll be surprised at what you can create with all natural ingredients!!

Peonies and sunshine

Between my peonies breaking through the ground last week and a forecast for a nice warm sunny day today ... I can finally believe that Spring is truly ready to show her face! 

How about you? What's happening in your garden?
