Fabulous Friday-Floral Arrangements

It has arrived...the heat...the humidity and my longing for  gorgeous flowers. But this will not deter me from having a Fabulous Friday. So, what better way to satisfy this longing than to dream of gorgeous floral arrangements and visit one of my favorite  social spaces... Pinterest                                         Via   I pretty much fell in love with this whimsical and precious  pitcher being used as vase, and oh the colors  of the  flowers i n  this simple arrangement-such savvy floral  arranging  -so as  not to take away from the pitcher.                                           Via I am enjoying the varying heights, colors, shapes and styles  of this assortment of vases and flowers, so interesting, and full of energy.  Great for a mantle or buffet.                                           via Fall, just around the corner, and aren't we all pretty much so looking forward to it. Using a gourd as a vase is unique, natural and perfectly perfect for this radiant, luscious 


Fabulous Friday Colorado

I Love Fabulous Friday... For me it is a week in review, what popped , what made me happy , what excited me, what inspired me.   We recently returned from a family trip from the marvelous State of Colorado so I am sharing snippets of that week today.     On one fine Summer day, we took two grand babies and a couple of their parents and went on a little adventure and this is one of the little creatures we saw. This is Nathan, c an you believe this handsome fellow? Just look at his gorgeous feathered feet.  Can anyone tell me what sort of Rooster he is? We met him at  James Ranch , in Durango Colorado.  Nathan lives here on this  amazing and awesome  family ranch that is going beyond Organic. Of course no mountain adventure seems really complete without roasting something over an  awesome fire. Six adults suddenly turned into kids once the roaring flames burned down and turned into glowing embers. We toasted marshmallows until they turned a golden brown and nestled them between mil


Summer Grapevine Wreath

Such a busy Summer but not too busy to make a wreath or two, so today I am sharing with you  one of my  my late Summer Wreaths. I enjoy the process of collecting materials to assemble my wreaths, sometimes I even  challenge myself to  shop the bargain aisle to see just what treasures may have been  overlooked by weary  shoppers.   I was in luck a few weeks back when I found these 75 percent off flowers and butterflies. I was also feeling a little bit whimsical, our Texas heat had not set in yet, and the notion of fluttering butterflies, fairies and magic actual seemed a little bit possible as I strolled along the byways of life. I adore nature, I revel in the beauty of it all and I am always amazed and thrilled by the glorious creatures that our Heavenly Father has created for us.   This little wreath is a reflection of those thoughts and feelings. Maybe it is because I was raised on a Farm,  Maybe it is because I grew up embracing nature in the beautiful West, Maybe it is because it i


Fabulous Friday

I am so enjoying reflecting on the week staying positive, thankful and finding items that make our lives a little happier, a little prettier and a little more fun! Okay ladies, these are must have readers-but we have to save up for them.   My doorbell rang a couple of days ago and there stood my neighbor wearing these,   So incredibly cute... So I snapped a picture right there and then! Fabulous, flirty and fun! I have been doing a little baking on these hot Summer days, nothing fancy in fact a little  lazy-brownies from a mix, but you do know, they really are super good! I found these cute ceramic measuring cups at Michael s, in those little bins marked one dollar, two dollar three dollar.   These were three and I love them! I have been tinkering around and taking a few photos and I just like this one,  I like the light, the white and the reflection.   So sharing this joy with you... I have been doing some reading on enhancing my eyelashes and adding some glow to my face. In my youth


The Wicker Suitcase

Our Church has several ministries and I am very   fortunate to be associated with one of them.  It is  Angel's Attic  an interesting and well  stocked  resale  shop. Angel's Attic has donated more than $100,000 to numerous charities both home and abroad. I have been volunteering in their furniture hospital. And I have been enjoying every moment of pondering  over the various pieces of furniture that pass through it's portals. As well as enjoying   sanding, painting and developing  caring friendships, along the way.  And then one day this wicker suitcase appeared. I casually eyed it for several days, passing by it, touching it, picking it up and then setting it back  down. I am not sure of it's history, I am not sure of it's  actual purpose. Is it a picnic basket? Is it a child's bag? Where did it travel? The wicker suitcase shows little  wear and tear. Some of the grand babies put their baby dolls in it. Some of the grand babies pack it around as if they are goi
