{Beaching with the Girls}

Good Sunday afternoon everyone. I hope that you all are having a wonderful Sunday and that tomorrow, July 4th, that you enjoy your red, white and blues. I just returned from from a short getaway to Fernandina Beach with my three daughters and we had such a wonderful time. We had one shower of rain but needless to say, I was a drowned rat! But oh did it ever feel so good and I simply just give praise for the much needed rain and time away with the girls. I for sure got the biggest soaking but then I can't move as fast as my girls! LOL!  Web image We had a lovely meal at the Boathouse one evening. We had about an hour wait so we walked around the historic district for a bit and oh my! I found the cutest little Christmas ornament shop. I can't believe I did not take any pictures. Especially when I LOVE ALL THINGS CHRISTMAS.  There is nothing like the sound of the ocean and the clean salt air to me.  We had brunch one morning at Sliders and one can never go wrong with Grits and Shr

{Gardening And Girl Talk}

These few pretty days that we have had has had me wanting to work in the yards a bit.  I have been re-potting several things and cleaning up my potting table getting it ready for more flowers and herbs to sit on.   I just love these pretties. I have two planters attached to the two windows on my she-shed and I always have such good luck with these flowers. They seem to grow abundantly. So much that I actually had some in the winter months that didn't look half bad. I absolutely adore asparagus ferns. I have several. I have a large one that sits in my yard in a bird bath and two that sit on the ledge of my carport. The one that sits in my bird bath was HUGE at one time and one of the hurricane's we had one season done some major damage to that beautiful fern. However, I manage to save some of that fern and re-potted and it has been beautiful once again. I use them for fillers in floral vases, decor and well, just to look at. They grow so easy and last forever. I

{Easter Tablescape and a Birthday}

I hope that you all had a wonderful Easter. We surely did. I wanted to share my Easter tablescape with you.  Better than late than never right? A dear, long time friend from church gifted me this 40 piece set of  beautiful dishes.  I love the colors. I decided to use pink and white place-mats to go with the lavender and green. The green table runner and green napkins gave the white a little pop. Don't you just love the adorable little bunnies? I have a set of 8 of those and have had them for a few years. I have used them different ways but decided they would look adorable sitting inside the salad plate.   I have had this cute guy for a long time. A friend of mine gave me this cutie some years ago. It held a candle but I think the egg looks so cute in it.  See the cute little egg salt and pepper shakers to the right? Too stinking cute. I love how the colors meshed so well together.   This cute little snow bunny was

Let's make a Teepee and Celebrate a Birthday}

My granddaughter Adalynn just celebrated her 3rd birthday and of course I had to come up with something a little creative for her 3rd birthday pictures, right ? Let's make a teepee shall we?  I gathered up a few flower bushes and snipped away.  Depending on how large you want your teepee to be to the size you will need your teepee but sweet girl was turning 3 so we didn't need a real big teepee. I bought 2 (10ft) pieces of PVC pipe and had them cut into 5 ft. pieces which gave me 4 pieces of PVC.  I think the PVC was maybe an inch thick. I decided how much of the tops of the PVC I wanted to show for the teepee, marked that spot with a pen, and drilled holes. Next I took rope, you can use heavy duty or light weight but I had some rope already and it worked for me. I put my 4 pieces of PVC together and ran the rope through the holes and wound it as many times as I felt needed to secure it and tied it off.   YES , I went from the barn to the porch and the p
