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

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.

    Fill a Milk Jar for Pop of Kitchen Color

    I love this milk jar turned Halloween treat, because it doubles as festive decoration and jar of yumminess perfect for your kitchen all month long. I swear I can’t keep my son’s hands out of it. Even if you don’t normally decorate your food prep place for this spooky holiday, it’s nice to add a pop of color to the room.

Soon after summer vanished, I soaked off the manufacturer labels and decided I could fill the empty…
