Authentic or Faux — My Forsythia Struts Its Stuff

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

Country Cuteness from Mom’s Garage

I took an old canning jar, a partial can of off-white spray paint, twine and twigs and quickly whipped up a cute little country-style home decor.

    Off the Shelf — Live Inspired Book 2

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest and personal opinions. I’m finally getting the chance to pass along my thoughts and opinions of Live Inspired Book 2 as a member of the Beacon Hill Press Off the Shelf Bloggers. I’m really excited to be a part of this group of book reviewers and hope that you find this critique helpful for your future book selections.
