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!

    Saturday Sparks — Advent Calendars

    Okay, so I know I gave you a glimpse into my fall home décor just yesterday and although I’m not advocating the legitimate switch to Christmas I do know that if you (or I) have any hope of getting crafty for the coming season without the procrastination and stress, we probably should have started last year.  . . but where’s the fun in that? Okay no, not all homemade crafty hope is lost, so let’s talk Advent calendar ideas. I’m making this my top priority, because it’s an item that needs to be ready to roll on December 1 so my son can start counting down the days to Santa’s arrival.  You can see…
