My husband and I took a quick trip to Las Vegas last week and of course I had to go to one of my favorite quilt shops…The Christmas Goose. I found a fun pattern book with this darling little Star Crossed Mini Quilt. (more…)
Today I thought it would be fun to do a Flower Thought!
I have been out working in the yard planting flowers and the garden. The weather has been wonderful…until today!
It has turned off cold today and the weather forecast is saying to cover our tomatoes and tender plants!!!
It is the middle of MAY…for heaven’s sake…and we are having a frost warning!
Don’t you love this little thought.
As women we tend to compare ourselves to each other and we need to stop doing that and “JUST BLOOM!”
With spring in full bloom and summer just around the corner, there are going to be lots of flowers blooming everywhere. I hope that when you look at those flowers, you will remember this thought and
Bloom Where You Are!
On another note, my husband and I just got back from a little trip to Las Vegas. We went to a Celine Dion show and to LeReve. Both were really good shows and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The weather was warm and it felt good to get away together for a few days! We also spent a few days in sunny St. George before coming home! I love going on road trips with my husband. He was my own personal chauffeur to quilt shops, malls, eating out and sight seeing!
Thanks for Visiting! Remember to blossom today!
My friend, Kathy, and I went to fun Uncle Sam Class…and looky what we made! (more…)
Fairy Garden 2017
I have been working out in the yard this last week planting some of my garden and some of my flower pots. I also had 2 of my grandchildren for 3 days and they wanted to help. We bought some new things for the Fairy Garden 2017 and some new plants!
They were so excited to put it all together and I think it turned out darling!We added a few new things from last years fairy garden.
The main thing was the addition of this little pond, stream and bridge! My granddaughter found these crystals and we thought it would fun to add this to our garden!
It adds so much color and dimension!My grandson picked out the gnome! It is a fun whimsical flair!
Succulents are the main plants in the garden. We have a cactus that looks like a flowering bush. Another succulent that looks like a tree on one corner of the house. And others to add great texture and colors!My youngest granddaughter picked out the fairy friends. She loved that one!The mailbox, bike, table and chairs and stone pathway are all from last year. Also the house is from last year too!So…welcome to the garden!
A fairy garden is a fun way to try out different plants and let the kid in you come back to life!
I am new to fairy gardening, but have enjoyed learning how to put one together. Of course collecting fun little trinkets to put out in the garden is half of the fun. What do you put in your fairy garden?
Thanks for Visiting!
I have been busy out working in the yard and garden because it has finally turned warm here! But, did find time to make two of these darling Double-Zip Clutch! (more…)
Today, I thought it might be fun to show you a Few of My Favorite Things! (more…)
My sister and I went to Thimbles and Thread Quilt shop in Draper, and took a “Scout Tee” shirt class together! It was so much fun. We have not done anything together for a long time, so it was great to catch up and visit with each other!
In the class we learned how to sew a woven cotton t-shirt! I have to admit that we were a little bit skeptical about how it would fit…with no stretch to the fabric. But they both turned out so different and so cute! (more…)
I have been experimenting with with several recipes for bath bombs and so today I would like to share my How to Make Bath Bombs-Update! (more…)
This week I took a couple of the grandkids out to the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival 2017. It was a beautiful day and we just had a wonderful time enjoying the spring weather and all of the gorgeous blooms! (more…)
