How my Garden Grows

Viola

I luv these sweet little violas. I get them from the Dollar store and they are an instant punch of color to my garden while I wait for my seeds to get started.

ViolaWhitenLilac

These white and lilac ones remind me of my grandmothers house.

ViolaMix

Its just amazing how many flowers I can get quickly from a $2 investment!

TheDeadOne

This sad fellow was a gorgeous plant last year, when the leaves come in it has a red tint to it, but I placed it outside too soon this year and we had a cold snap and this is what happened. Hopefully I can save it, I’ll keep you updated on his progress. In the pot next to him is a plant I got from my BFF after her house fire, I have been babysitting for almost a year now.  He has a ton of babies coming in, I’m super excited, and I tossed in a package of mixed flower seeds this year and there is so much happening in there it should be amazing in a month or so.

SweetBasil

Sweet basil, herbs take forever to get going. I had Oregano and Parsley too but they never came up so I now have Cilantro (which is way better anyway) and Catnip! Oliver is going to luv that.

SunflowersAllInARow

These will be pretty sunflowers all in a row.  Last year the sunflowers were one of my best producers. Super easy to grow and last forever.

PinkSucclent

This is another Dollar store find, no tag but its a succulent of some kind and its bloom is a sweet pink.

MorningGlories

This is Morning Glory, hard to imagine that in just a few short weeks this will be a huge mass of glorious bright blue flowers and heart shaped leaves.  I luv that this year I have an actual pole to let it trial up.

MyAddiction!

And while it doesn’t grow in my garden I am lucky enough to live across the street from Starbucks and I get my favorite Venti Mocha Frap, no whip, all the time. Thanks BF, u r the best xo

I started my little patio garden paradise about a month ago and so much progress already I am thrilled.  I credit the homemade mulch I worked so hard on all winter.  Who would have thought that I would go from a brown handed girl to Lil Miss Green Thumbs in just a couple of years 😉 I sure never did.

I will keep you updated on the progress as the year goes on I am sure you will get tired of all the pics long before I do.

Enjoy Y’all

Easter Decorating has turned into an Obsession!!

It all started innocently enough, wanting to share a beautiful, fun and creative family tradition with my stepkids.   I began innocently enough and then it started to grow, I realized it but had other projects and things going on so I wasn’t concerned.  Today I realized it was taking over my life and I was obsessed!

I sent my BFF a text… “Eggs have taken over my house!”  I realized it when I was editing and organizing photos for this post and could fully see my addiction… Almost 250 pics… of eggs! And yes the majority are individual eggs!  WOW!

So I have decided to shut down the project.  I will be sharing with you over the next week or so, I don’t want to blow up the internet or my laptop trying to do it all at once, but most importantly I don’t want to bore you with what might seem like the same things over and over.  They really are different I promise and I hope you really love them all.. I know I do 😉

Without further ado… Easter

Ta Dah… I made these eggs a few years for a decorating contest at work, which I won!

All these eggs are hollow, when I break one I try to use the bits and pieces to make something different, waste not want  not, as my momma always said.

 I had recently purchased a scrapbook kit and while rummaging through my supplies to try and find some idea of what to do for the contest I found it and it was a ‘aha’ moment.

I have loved Easter since I was a child its such an amazing time of year, Spring, babies animals, flowers, fancy new clothes for church…

This little cutie was from my childhood… mom always found the cutest things to place in our baskets!

This one actually used to clip on to things but I think I played with it too much as a child  but its still adorable!

I had to blur the faces but I really wanted to show you a lacy doily my momma made, and this great flower box I got  for a $1 at my fav local thrift shop!

Don’t forget to add some gorgeous color to your wardrobe too.

I Luv Spring was the theme I went with on these eggs and I presented them like this but in a basket not a silver tray. Tomorrow I will show you how we displayed them when I was a little girl.

Enjoy Y’all
