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.

    Saturday Sparks – Fall Wreaths

    If you’re not familiar with Hometalk, a site for gathering oodles of home decorating, redoing and DIYing ideas, you should take a look. I often post items on the site and one of my posts about fall wreaths has been very popular lately. The catch is that this original post on Small Talk Mama was lost when everything went down a couple of years ago, which means all those folks hoping to see all the great inspiration I promised have been coming up empty. So in the spirit of this new fall season, I have revamped the original post and added a few updates that I hope will inspire y’all…

    Saturday Sparks — Good Ol’ Garden Fences

    With the arrival of the gardening season, also comes my thoughts toward a better garden de-fence. We back to a couple hundred acres of timber full of all sorts of wildlife that appreciates our fresh veggies as much as we do. So each year, I always make grand plans for future fencing to protect our little garden from all sorts of pests; but as of yet, nothing but a simple chicken wire barricade has appeared. If you’re also on the hunt for a good ol’ garden fence, then today’s inspiration is just for you (and me). I hope these practical solutions give us both something about which to think. . .…
