A little treasure for your mouth

I spotted these for the 1st time the other day and I couldn't resist! If you haven't tried them yet you are in for a treat! These are not the kind of mints that you will offer to your friends and family because you will want to keep them for yourself! Lol! I keep checking mine to see if anyone has taken some. So go out and get yourselves some and keep a fresh breath all day! Ha!

Have great weekend!

"Somewhere over the rainbow skies are blue, and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true." ~ Lyman Frank Baum

Lovely shades of blue for you today! The lovely teacup can be found at vintagepaperbella on Etsy! Enjoy your day!

Dancing among the ivy

You see that lovely shade of light green.. it's poison ivy! It's creeping and dancing all around my English ivy which has taken over our backyard. It is a pretty sight this sea of ivy but not too pretty for the skin! Lol! My daughter had a case of it when we first moved in this house and it was not fun. Oh what lovely things Spring brings! We have wood bees too that love to make holes on my porch. They are really hard to get rid of. They do inspire me though. I made a cuff that is perfect for the bee/insect lover..............
Also..ther are lots of caterpillars in my yard which will soon be turning into lovely butterflies which I was inspired to make this cuff for the Butterfly lover too.....

Just thought I would share some of my inspirations today! Remember to stay clear of the light green leaves with 5 leaves on each stem! A tip for the day!

Shades of pink

It was a beautiful day yesterday. Sunny, clear blue sky and a little breeze. The pollen here has been unbelievable! The light green powder is everywhere! Luckily I don't have an allergy problem because I really feel sorry for those that do. Ugh! But with that pollen comes spectacular shows from the flowers! I captured some flowers in shades of pink and wanted to share these lovlies. My neighbor has this tree with the pink flowers in the top photo. I don't know what the name of this tree is....they look like carnations all clustered on the branches.
These are my azalea bushes that are in my front and back yards. Oh so pretty! Just thought I would share and wish you all a Happy Monday!

The beautiful flowers popping up,the warm air,the birds chirping and the bees are buzzing! It's a wonderful thing! This picture is of my Baby's Breath Bush and my shabby little blue garden house stick. The Bush is in full bloom now ! It is so pretty! This weather sure does change your mood! At least it does mine! I'm just happy all the time! Lol! Well ,at least I try to be. I hope you all are enjoying beautiful Spring weather too! I'll be off to warmer weather next week for Spring Break! I can't wait to go! On another note...I want to thank everyone for their support on voting for my bracelet! I came in 3 rd place! Yay! It was fun and I couldn't have done it without all of your help! Thank you! Have a great day!
