Simple and Easy Ways to Create Dried Flowers



Every spring when the roses begin to bloom I start thinking about decorating with a bouquet or two. Sometimes they are popped into various vases and other times into teapots to enjoy their rosy blossoms around the house. But when they are past their prime, I hate to just throw away those faded roses as well as other spent beautiful blooms.

Today I am sharing a couple of easy ways to dry flowers...

Make a French-Inspired Door Decoration for Spring ~ A Pinterest Challenge



Hello friends! Welcome back and welcome to this month's fun Pinterest Challenge where a group of friends gets together and creates a vignette, a project or tablescape (among other things!) based off of an inspiration piece.

A Spring Door Decoration
 is our Pinterest Challenge this time and we thank Cindy of County Road 407 for bringing us all together for this challenge. If you are stopping by from Katie of Let's Add Sprinkles I hope you enjoy my creation!

A little food for thought... ;)


With what is going on with the COVID-19 virus and the fact that I was away with the IOOF at a previously scheduled conference photographing for my friend, I haven't shared any new posts this past week. It does make some of what we write about superfluous, but...

On that same note, we also will be needing happy and healthy distractions to keep away the fear and boredom of being isolated (I know I am concerned and I am sure you are, too), so I will be sharing more from my trip to Corsicana and other fun things later this week. 

Thanks for hanging with me!

Here are this week's featured posts...

Amber at Follow the Yellow Brick Home linked up this Rustic Farmhouse St. Patrick's Day Tablescape as part of last week's posts. Lots of pretty ideas to use for spring even though St. Patty's Day is just passed. 



And a final post also from Rachelle of My Hubbard Home and this one is about one of my personal favorites ~ David Austin- A Life Devoted to Roses.

To see how magnificently these roses can bloom in the perfect climate, here is my former Southern California garden filled with just a few...
