Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

Igot so excited when I rounded the house this weekend to find my forsythia bush blooming! I immediately cut several stems to take the place of the faux flowers I wrote about only days before on my post “Five Tips for Displaying Faux Flowers.”

This cheery card is a perfect way to brighten someone's day. . . complete with a little shaker surprise!

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

    Saturday Sparks — Thanksgiving Place Cards

    While it’s unlikely that your family members need help finding a place to sit at the Thanksgiving table, place cards can be a fun way of mixing up the usual conversation and perking up the day.
