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.

    Something’s Fishy!

    We added three new faces (and fins) to our family this week with the addition of our son’s long-awaited little fish.

    A Photographic Kind of Mother’s Day

    I hope all you mamas out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

It was a lot of driving, but I truly had a couple of great days. The Mother/Daughter Banquet at Verdigris FBC was a lot of fun. The decorations were adorable, the food was good and the giveaways were awesome! I came home with the new “Magnolia Table” cookbook. Sunday started out with a Weight Watchers conscious breakfast casserole, prepared the night before by my husband. I’ll share that…
