Happy 4th of July!

Good morning friends...
I'm sitting here enjoy my first cup of coffee this morning
with my hubby.  Up before sunrise to a lovely cool 61 degrees.
Listening to the birds, a rooster off in the distance and 
yep, someone's none stop barking dog!
It's going to be another lovely day here and we'll be 
joining some friends for a get together this afternoon.
There's sure to be lots of great food and laughs with this group
along with some water balloon volleyball to keep us cool.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Independence Day
whatever your plans may be.

Until next time,
I wish you peace, good health and happiness.

Idaho Potatoes anyone?

I've had this idea in my head for some time now.....
I know it's not your average floral arrangement, after all who
want's a bouquet of potatoes on the counter?  The idea
 came to me one day while I was browsing a few sites
that offered handmade vegetables and fruits.
I had some artificial potato vine, a large can and a
label that I had created a long time ago.
"Famous Idaho Potatoes - Blackfoot, Idaho"
I think it as a souvenir kind of thing.
Anyway I'll be taking it to my friends shop.  It may only become a
conversation piece or if it sells then so be it!

Hope everyone is safe and dry.
We've had our share of rain which is very much a blessing
since our snowfall didn't amount to anything last winter.
My prayers continue to be with those folks who lost loved ones
and the devastating conditions across the country.

Until next time, 
I wish you peace, good health and happiness.

Happy Hump Day!

Happy Hump Day!
One more day and the month comes to an end.
It's an absolutely gorgeous day here in southeast Idaho!

The weather is finally warming and I'm aching to get 
outdoors and start planting up some of my many flower
pots and planters and poking around and tweaking 
in my little flower bed with some of the yard "art" pieces
I've gathered or been given as gifts.

This is a photo of a few years ago.

I've also been working on a few special orders
for Patriotic decor and a wedding bokay for a local gal.
(Sorry can't share photo yet.)
as well as working on some new items for
Mother's Day.
This is a new listing in my Etsy shop.
Simple and Sweet!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you all are enjoying
beautiful weather.

Until next time,
peace, health and happiness be with you.

Mother's Day Giveaway and little of this and that~

Good morning!
Goodness me it's been a loooong time since I've made
a blog post.  Sure hope you all have been doing great
and enjoying some wonderful weather in your neck of the woods.
I've managed to keep myself busy and for the most part
out of trouble.......keeping my hands busy with creating
more of my "themed" recycled can arrangements 
as well as several other projects.
Here is a photo of my latest project for myself-
an Uncle Sam doll made from a
Harvest Hollow Primitives pattern.
He's just about finished.  I need to add his wings
and adjust the flag.
