Just because you can.

Wishing you a day filled with friendship!

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?

Stash ....

A girls gotta have a little (or alot!) of stash, right?
Can you imagine this being yours? I could, easily.
It's not mine, only a photo from a past antique and collectibles show ... I probably have half this amount of trims stashed away. When I see a photo like this I want to spend a day in the studio creating!!

What's in your stash?
Do you squirrel it away ? ... or use it on a regular basis?

Have a happy Monday ... hope you're busy creating with your goods stashed away for play.
