I started baking again...

 I got the creative urge to make some gift tags . It's one of my favorite things to do. I coffee stained the tags first and baked them. Once again my poor kids came running down the stairs asking what I was baking and I had to tell them paper! It does kinda smell like coffee cake though. Ha! Anyhoo..I then decorated them like so. I plan to give them away as gifts and as extra goodies for customers. They are fun and unique! I have a lot of respect for those who make and sell gift tags. A lot of time and thought goes into them and to me they are extra special! I'm planning on actually baking something real to eat for tomorrow...Ha! Stay tuned!
Have a fabulous day!

Where my creations begin.....

Take a peek into my studio. This is actually our dining room that I took over.
We pretty much entertain in our kitchen.If by chance we need to entertain there
 I can move my stuff and put a table cloth over the table and  "Voila"! All the jewels and beads that I use
are what you see. Do you think I have enough? The answer is No! I'm a beadaholic and vintage findings junkie! I love the hunt for jewels. I'm thinking about downloading this make it yourself banner for Halloween and putting it in the window. You can find this one and many more beautiful printable images at lovecreationgal on Etsy.
So this is where I spend my time creating jewelry for my shop. Have a fabulous weekend!

Bird on a wire.....

 Or should I say on a strand of lights hanging on my screened in porch! Two cute birds found
there way in the porch this morning and here is one of them perched on a strand of lights.. I don't know how they get in sometimes but they do. It was like having a big open air bird cage {like in a zoo} looking out from my kitchen windows. Birds were flying evrywhere! Anyways, I thought this photo came out so "tweet".

Raind drops........


Are falling. Finally a little bit of rain has fallen here in Georgia.  
My daughter captured these droplets on some leaves and made this
leafy collage. Where is that little caterpillar I wonder? It seemed to nibble here and there.
Refreshing,green and leafy. Silly me I know. Time to make a salad!

The July Flower

 I've been away a bit. Taking advantage of the lazy,hazy ,hot and sticky and pretty much relaxing Summer days! I hope you all are too! We just received the back to school list in the mail today. Hard to believe it's already around the corner. Every Summer seems to breeze on by a bit faster as my children get older.
 Well I thought I would share The July flower today! Since we still are in July. It is the Double Stock Flower!
 The stock flower is often associated with beautiful symbolism. They are most commonly said to represent a contented and happy life; however, they are also thought to mean undying affection and love, as well as lasting beauty. Because of these symbols, stock flowers are often given as gifts as emblems of love, contentment and the wish for the recipient to be as happy and beautiful tomorrow as they are today. This information was found on
 Wishing you all a happy July Day!

A sweet tweet......


 Too cute for words! My family went on a picnic on Memorial day
and my youngest decided to explore the tree and walked right into this baby bird.
We all got up to see and the sweet baby bird just sitting on the branch. I think it just flew from the
nest and landed there and didn't want to move. We then took a few pictures because we have never been that close to one before. We left it because we heard mama bird and then watched her feed baby "Philip". My daughter named it. It was just too cute and thought to share these photos!

Found what I was looking for!

   A vintage glider for my porch! I'm so excited! I've been on the hunt for one for a little while and found it today. It's aluminum and has the original cushions which are in fabulous shape. It glides fairly well, I need to put a little WD40 on it to make really glide good but it's great exercise anyways! Ha! I'm sprucing up my porch for Summer and thought I would share my new purchase. My kids get out of school next week so it should get a lot of use. Have a great day!

 Tiny moments captured on film that is so sweet and innocent. Natures gift that brings a smile to our faces young and old. A gift that keeps on giving. My fondest memories from when I  was young was picking flowers from someone else's garden or in our own yard and bringing them home to my mom to make her happy. Flowers just do that to us. They make us feel good. Just like this sweet little neighbor of mine picking flowers for her mom. Simply priceless!

Ranunculus is the name of these flowers

The name Ranunculus is Late Latin for "little frog," from rana "frog" and a diminutive ending. This probably refers to many species being found near water, like frogs. Yes...I looked up the definition! Funny name I think but I think they are my most favorite! I bought them at Trader Joe's on Friday and had to have a little photo shoot. I just love em! I haven't been around in awhile... just one of my blog away phases....sorry if you have missed me. I'm back today to spread the word Ranunculus! Enjoy!

Shabby granny green apple

 This is the color I describe of this sweet yard stick I have in my yard.  Inspiring because it screams Spring! It is stuck in the cold hard ground and sits in front of a bare bush. It's the only pop in my yard at the moment. I love the sweet texture and color and thought I would share it with you. So it's a shabby, granny green apple kind of day today!

Going stir crazy

 I have not left the house since Saturday. Well I took some photos from the porch and walked the dog in the yard but that's it! I stocked up on groceries knowing this storm was coming but we just ran out of bread and we are craving a grilled cheese sandwich with tomato soup! Mmm Mmm Good! So my sweet son is going to trudge in the snow and walk 2 miles and back to get a loaf of bread. It's amazing what a craving will do! At least the sun is shining but it's still below freezing out. Hopefully by the weekend I can drive my car. Wishing you all a happy day!

Snow in ATL!!

 I'm sure everyone knows by now how we got dumped on. An arctic winter blast came through and our city is pretty much closed. Growing up in upstate N.Y this is funny. Although without the snow tires and all the plows and salt tucks to make everything easier to live in the winter I see why we are in a state of emergency! Anyways the kids are having the time of their lives and it is so pretty! This photo is of my decorative bike in my front yard. Having fun drinking hot cocoa and listening to the kids all around screaming as they slide down the hills! I hope everyone is staying warm wherever you are!

A wrinkle a day......

 Last night I tossed and turned. I could not fall asleep.  I was watching T.V before I went to bed and it stuck in my head this show I watched on celebrities and plastic surgery.  I guess the secret to Heather Locklear's youthful look is laying on her back and soft sheets! Wow! I thought to myself..I shall try laying on my back at night. Lol! This must be the reason all these fine lines are showing up on my face. My sheets are just not soft enough! Anyways... I could not fall asleep on my back and how do you know when your sleeping that you don't turn to your side? Hmm? I guess this trick works only for certain people. Ha! Wishing you all a happy and well rested weekend!
