I do love this time of year.  I love all the trees blossoming. Especially forsythia.  I have 5 very large bushes growing my yard. They are just so pretty and happy looking...

happy spring, and have a great weekend:)

bird watching

Before I went into work this afternoon I was out bird watching in my back yard. There has been this one blue jay in our yard this year and I wanted to take some pictures of the little guy. 

This was the only clear shot I got of him.  I'll have to try again tomorrow.
But the other pictures turned out pretty cool.
I love how all the branches of the trees look. It looks kinda like a spiderweb. 
Can you find him???

Even though my camera decided to focus on the branches rather than the robin, I really liked how this one turned out also.
Oh... and I couldn't resist not putting one in here of my girl!!  
Happy Spring to you all!!

vintage button wreath

I dove in my vintage button stash on Saturday to make this heart wreath.  I have jars and jars of buttons that are just waiting for me to use them!  I wrapped the wreath form in vintage laces and accented with vintage ivory pearls.

I used more lace to hang it along with a white seam binding bow. I might have to make another one for myself!!
You can find it available here.

busy, busy...

I know it's been awhile since I posted last, but I do have 2 good reasons why...

One is because hubby and I took a vacation to the Caribbean, taking a week long vacation. We visited Key West, Grand Cayman, and Ochos Rios. We had a blast and it was much needed!!

The second reason is that I was getting things ready for a show I am going to be in this weekend!

It runs for 4 days, so I've heard it's a pretty big show! If you live in the area, be sure to stop by!
I'll post photos of my booth this weekend.
If anyone needs direction give me a call!!
