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: Back-to-School Teacher Bribes

    It’s that time of year again, where we scurry around gathering supplies for our school bound children, map out where they are headed on day one and how best to get them there, snap a few photos for posterity’s sake and maybe even shed a tear or two as we send them off for yet another nine months of being looked after by another human being.

    Saturday Sparks: Good Gardens

    Spring has been arriving at an excruciatingly slow pace this year but I think warmer weather is finely in sight. Let me tell ya, I’m itching to get out in the garden! I purchased some seeds and tomato plants last night, hubby has the garden spot tilled for planting  and I’m all about some outdoor inspiration. So this week’s Saturday Sparks is dedicated to a few good gardens. I hope you get your hands dirty!
