Well, hello March! I love this time of year - the colors, the cool weather, Easter, and lots of birthdays. I went with my mom to the 1898 store on Saturday for a couple of hours...love that place. My mom found this big jar in the kitchen junk - $1.50! I thought it was so unusual so I brought it home, cleaned it up a bit, and put these beautiful flowers inside. It's fun how the flowers are the same shape as the parsley on the front of the jar. :) This little set up is on top of the shelves in my craft room. The green is a sap bucket with pink peonies and the blue is an old chipped aqua bread box. Fun!
I also dug thru a few jewelry boxes and found some little pieces - pearl rosary beads, black rhinestone brooch, purple/pink stone butterfly pin, and this pink earring - 10 cents! (would make a fun flower centerpiece on a project) God bless the little lady who runs this shop and always has opera music playing loudly. She just makes up the prices 1/2 the time, ha. There was a big rounder of old cookie cutters and I found this bunny - great for Easter decor. The pink ruffly ribbon is soooooo pretty. That is from Hobby Lobby and is available in brown and cream, too. It's a tulle material, rough on the edges, and rolled to look like flowers. I love it.
I think I'll bake some Lemon Blueberry bread tonight for breakfast tomorrow. I love lemon anything. I want to scrapbook so badly, but am tired of event pages. I need to take some random photos so I can tell some stories. That's one thing I don't do enough is take regular photos.
Happy birthday to my daddy in heaven. He would have been 76 today!
Have a beautiful day. :)
