here in SC! We had 5 straight days of rain, fog, and gloom. The type that requires lights all day. I am glad that's over! Phew, that will dampen anyone's spirit. On this bright sunny but cool Sunday, this is what I'm doing:
Loving my french press brewer. If you don't have one, try it! Makes strong coffee though but I like it that way. Just like my NeeNee; having a pot of coffee simmering on the stove. One of the best smells I remember from her. Dark chocolate--must have! I have to limit sugar's though and the Dr says if I'm going to eat chocolate make sure it's dark -won't spike my insulin so bad.
It's been a rough weekend for Devyn. She's 18mos old and still won't sleep well. I think I had 4 hours of sleep last night. I hope it's growing pains. She did transition to toddlers last week at school and was having some overexcitement from that. Hoping this week will be a little calmer!
I do have to recommend this cookbook. It's absolutely darling and has some of the easiest recipes--family and kid oriented, beautiful photos and stories. The fun part is that is based by color! I just love that idea.
Preparations are under way to attend Sweet Flower Fairy Garden Art Retreat!
Lastly, I'm off to watch my DVR movie from Lifetime--nice sappy romance for one tired person.
Oh, how do you like my new banner? I am in LOVE with the vintage look and my favorite-birdies!
Just a couple of sweet Easter goodies I made. Sometime's the image is great by itself and all it needs it some glitter and ribbon!
Isn't this an awesome photo?
Enjoy your weekend!
Blue Bird and Flower Bird
She is approx 9.5 inches from head to tail and approx 6 inches from belly to top of scroll wing.
Flower bird is made with vintage wallpaper, handpainted scroll wings with glitter, velvet flowers and vintage earring, seam binding for ribbon and hanger. Her eye is a vintage part of an earring. Her tail has my favorite sentiment 'Hope is the thing with feathers'. I also handpainted her back. She is approximately 9.5 inches from head to tail and 6 inches from belly to top wing scroll.
Now you are asking 'what's that?'. When I'm having a crappy day which is way to often now at my full time job. I can pull one of these bits out!
