Fall Mason Jar Flowers

I decided that I needed some fun fall colors in my house, so I did this arrangement of Fall Mason Jar Flowers!  Don’t you love the vibrant colors in these flowers and the beautiful fall tones.  It is  also perfect that there is just a touch of purple in this arrangement that sets it off beautifully!fall mason jar flowers Continue reading

Fairy Garden

When my husband and I went to Waco, TX, last month, we went to the Magnolia shops and I was able to purchase some items to start a Fairy Garden!  I have never really thought about having a fairy garden, but when I saw the cute accessories that they had there,  I got excited about making one!fairy garden Continue reading

Wildflowers at the Cabin

My husband and I went up to our cabin last week and it was a beautiful site!  As we turned around a bend we saw beautiful fields of Wildflowers at the Cabin!  There were so many of them that I decided I “needed” a beautiful bouquet to enjoy for the time that we were there!Wildflowers at the cabin Continue reading

Thanksgiving Point

Thanksgiving Point Gardens

I took a couple of my grandkids to the Thanksgiving Point Gardens and I was thinking that the kids might be a little bit bored walking through the gardens…but they loved it!  So much so, that we had to go back again a few days later!  My secret…I let my 9 year old granddaughter take my camera and she had a great time.  The battery on my camera died about half way through the gardens, so that is why we had to go back a few days later to finish our photo shoot!  :)Thanksgiving Point Continue reading

In every walk in Nature

Thursday’s Thought-In Every Walk In Nature…

I thought that it would be fun to use one of my pictures from The Butchart Gardens on Vancouver Island, to make my thought for today!  There were several quotes that I have, but I loved this one about walking in nature!In every walk in NatureI know that I am weird in my love for flowers…so you may have to deal with a few more flower pictures in future posts!  :)  Is there a flowers-anonymous  club that I should join???

Hope you have a great Thursday!

Thanks for Visiting Today!

Trip to the Pacific Northwest

My husband and I just got back from a trip last week to the Pacific Northwest.  We drove a total of 2,915 miles!  It was insane!  Our plans were to drive to Port Angeles in Washington and then take the ferry over to Vancouver Island.  We were then going to drive the 101 coastal highway down to San Francisco and cut across California and come home to Utah.  After driving the 101 for a couple of days, we totally changed our plans because that road is so curvy and slow  and we could not even see the ocean much of the time because of all of the trees, so we changed plans and cut back to the interstate to come home!  But, the drive up to Port Angeles was beautiful and so was Vancouver Island, so it was worth all the driving!  

As I mentioned yesterday, I got a new camera before we left on our trip and I took over 500 pictures and videos!  It was so fun to learn to use my new camera with all of the beautiful places we visited.  I apologize  in advance for all of the pictures, but I did put a lot of them into collages, so you can see several pictures all at once!flowers at port of Hoodsport Continue reading

Farmer's Market Sign

Farmer’s Market Sign

I hope that you all had a great Memorial Day weekend!  We went up to our cabin and also to our hunting property.  We have built an irrigation pond and are anxiously waiting for it to fill up!  They have planted a few fish in there, so the grandkids are already loving  it!

I also went to Poppyseed Projects to get a summer board, and came home with this darling print instead!  All I had to do to make this sign was to paint the board black, Mod Podge the print to the board and then add the texture cream to the front of the plaque!  So easy!

Easy Flower Arrangement

Super Easy Flower Arrangement

My neighbor had a flower arrangement sent to her house for Mother’s Day.  She was not home at the time, so the florist left it with me.  It was so striking that I decided to see if I couldn’t duplicate the idea!  Her’s was made with mini carnations in different colors, but I found these daisies and mums at Costo and decided to give it a try!Easy Flower Arrangement
