Ten On The Tenth Hop| Recycled Mother's Day Watering Can

Welcome friends and new subscribers, how blessed I am to have you join me for our once a month 10 on the Tenth creative blog hop !  As we enter into another month of Stay Home, I thank you for sticking in here with me.  This has been a long haul in uncertain times and in order to maintain a positive outlook I have had to guard my mindset through Bible study, prayer, homemaking, gardening and yes crafting! Today 7 homemakers   😊 are going to be sharing their version of up-cycling things you might just have at home. I thought that I would share a cheerful and multi-use watering can makeover.

Vintage Style Mother's Day On Our Patio

Welcome to our vintage style Mother's Day on our patio and also Happy Mother's Day Week! Today's post is all about celebrating the art of homemaking and remembering Mom and Grandma through their love of china and collectibles. Preserving a collection is preserving History, an era, a thought, a moment, an event. I loved preparing and photographing this post because it's all about celebrating women and the difference that my Mom and Grandma made and continue to make in my life. In between all of this celebration of  life, we will be talking about being blessed and figuring out where these collectibles and china came from! This Wedding China is my Grandmother's and is 100 years old. I know I had the best Mother in the world and I just bet you do too! 

May Day Country Cottage Wreath

Good Morning and thank you for joining me today as I celebrate May Day! Truly what a beautiful day it is here in the mountains of Colorado, the sun is slipping through the pines and we didn't get below freezing last night. After having had an extremely cold and snowy Winter we are welcoming spring with open arms. The last snow drift has melted, tulips are budding and I saw the first bumble bee and hummingbird of the season. Naturally with all of this Spring bursting around me I was compelled to create a May Day Country Cottage Wreath.

Happy Earth Day at the Dallas Arboretum

Happy Earth Day Friends! Today we celebrate Earth Day virtually and rejoice in the miraculous beauty of flowers.
