Spring is Hiding! Where are you??? January 29 2017 1 Comment

Waiting and watching for Spring! When will we see the first happy daffodil push through the dirt? Looking from my kitchen window, I'm steady wanting to see that first pop of yellow! I know it's there somewhere.

How do you prepare for the season ahead? Man, it's still cold here in Louisiana and I know some of you are still getting snow! Not here so much in the south. You know we can't handle the snow....not even a flake and we panic! Go get the bread, milk, water and meat from the grocery store, I saw a snowflake!!!

Look for some great blog posts and offers soon from us on prepping your home decor for seasonal events. Like Easter egg hunts, dinners and parties. We have lots of fun here especially with the seasonal colors we so love to work with.

And bunnies??? We have bunnies everywhere like this one for a door....

 or this one for a basket... or this one for anywhere you want supercuteness.

Don't forget Mother's Day is May 14th! We have some great items for those special ladies in your life and will be sharing more of those later.

Now off to see if ANY hope of that yellow daffodil is breaking through the ground!!!

Love to all,



Take a Deep Breath March 19 2015

Aw, finally, tomorrow is the first official day of Spring! And I love everything this season brings. New life, new flowers and buds on the trees. Color, oh, such marvelous color. Everywhere I look I can see it. Daffodils sprouting out of the oh so wet ground in my back yard. The blooms on the natural dogwoods are ready to burst. And while I see color ALL THE TIME in the shop, it is inspiring to finally see it in real life.

Right now I'm doing some spring cleaning. You know that time of the year where you look at your surroundings and all the STUFF!!! And let me tell you, I have got the STUFF! Now I have two houses to declutter. My shop and my house. A total of 3,600 sq. ft. to work through. The house will have to wait. I can't work if the shop is all cluttered. (That's my excuse about getting to the house.) The garage needs to be organized. And how I love to organize my garage -- SAID NO ONE EVER!!

And to get to a place where I can freely work and play in my shop -- yes, I have the BEST JOB EVER where I can play disguised as work -- I must clear out, clean out, discard, let things go.

What's the hardest thing for you to throw away? I keep the weirdest things like sticks. You know the stems from flowers after I cut them off. May seem like trash to you, but in my business a bendable stick is a treasure. So I have all sizes, colors, shapes, you name it of bendable sticks. They do come in handy to glue things to wreaths or in arrangements. And note to file, you cannot buy a decent stick to use for that purpose.

Cleaning out is good. It refreshes the soul and gives us a chance to breathe in really deep. You know that kind of deep breath of accomplishment. So whether you're cleaning out a physical room, house, drawer, garage, or cleaning and decluttering other areas of your life -- toxic relationships, difficult people, or complicated situations -- just remember, soon you can take that deep breath of fresh spring air!
