Sharing a little of this and some of that....

Well, it looks like I've done gone and done it again.....neglecting my blog!  Seems as though I'm having trouble, again, trying to come up with something interesting to tell you. So, I'll just show you a little of this and that....

With the feeling of Spring in the air I've been in the mood to make up some Spring floral arrangements.  I found the wooden container in a thrift store then painted it and filled it with happy flowers and moss.  Tied on a burlap bow and added a little ceramic bird.
This pretty arrangement was created by my sister.  We love texting each other about our projects and attaching photos. It's our way of staying connected although we are miles apart....

I created this pretty arrangement with a mercury glass vase, some burlap script flowers, a big white flower and the added the piece'de la resistance....the burlap, ribbon and lace bow!

Since I'm on a roll, I went ahead and made up some cute image pillows.  Love this one with the rabbit image from the Graphic's Fairy.

He's so darn cute.  I love how he looks all vintagey and faded.  I planned that you know. Not.  The fabric didn't take the ink so well and the result was a nice faded look that I think is pretty cool.

Another pillow.  This time I used this sweet Mermaid image from the Graphic's Fairy.  Love her.

Last, I spruced up the entryway table with some new topiaries from Home Goods.  A bird and a bunny and of course, another mirror.

Well, that's it for now.  Hope that you all get out there this week and create, make, bake, sew, write, photograph, repurpose. and find something wonderful.  Whatever you do be sure and share it with the rest of us.

It's all so pretty. If you have a tutorial for putting graphics on your pillows, I'd sure love to have it! I'm not good with graphics (what little I've tried), but I'd love to be. Your floral arrangements are beautiful, too! I always enjoy your posts!

I took a year long break from blogging but only because I was having computer glitches and then it simply died! But Jackie is back and I'm so happy I've found you again. Your work and your home and I'm assuming you still have the same booth is as beautiful as always. I'm blogging in two areas...still at Jacquelines-land.blogspot.com and my art/craft business Dingbatalleyartblog.com love sent to you!
