Things That Make Me Happy

 This little girl. She is now two years old, and an absolute joy. 
 This little flower that no one noticed. 
 My mom and dad. They're such good people, and I'm lucky to have them. 
 This big flower that everyone noticed. 
This spectacular sight. Mesa Falls. Absolutely gorgeous.

Life here has gotten complicated.
(A grown up word for "hard")
I'd like to say I'll be back and sharing all kinds of fun stuff, but I can't. I don't know what the next few months will bring.
I want to thank you all for your support and encouragement and your friendship. This has never been "just a blog" for me, and getting to know so many nice people through this blog has been so much fun. 
I'll be honest, I won't be answering any comments~simply because I don't know what I'd say in a reply. 

Thanks for reading, and take care.

Some Wedding Shabbiness

Have you seen this on Pinterest?
Gorgeous, right?
(You can buy the print on this website~AND!~go get your credit cards~you can get this on an Iphone case. Yeah, it's #1 on my list of wants.) 
So the engaged one liked this a lot, and we racked our brains trying to decide how we could use something like this for her wedding reception.
 We came up with nada. 
But I was in Hobby Lobby recently, and saw this. The first letter of what will be her new last name. 
I had an idea. Some stain, some scrapbook paper, a sander, a little distress ink and
Voila! A fairly rough version. And I like it!
It's not a lot like the inspiration photo, actually.
But two more letters next to it with different paper would look pretty cool. 
I hope she'll like it. 

Thanks for reading!

Garden Party Decor

I was asked to do some centerpieces for a garden party. 8 tables and a buffet table. 
 The budget is $50. 
 Not a lot to work with, but I've done more on less. 
 My son made me these totes the other day to use on some of the tables. I already had enough for the other tables. All we had to buy were those metal clamps. 
This is the basic idea. My guys liked it, but I'm sure I'll be tweaking it up until the party starts.
(I'll probably take out the rock, or cover it more with the moss. It gets windy here, and some weight will keep things from blowing away. So maybe I'll keep it. I don't know!) 
There will be lots of flowers in the garden and I don't want to compete with that.

So that's what I'm obsessing over lately. What's occupying your mind?

See that big jar in the grainy photo? I love it. But look...
Beyond sad. All I will say is
 I didn't do it. And I can't bring myself to throw it out until I find a replacement. 
This is the closest I've found, and I will NOT pay that! Plus, I don't think it's as big as my poor cracked one. 
Anyone know where I can find a replacement at a reasonable cost?
