DIY Red White and Blue Door Decor

Welcome to our creative gathering of Ten on the Tenth. We are a group of friends and bloggers who share our individual spin on creativity for the home for under Ten dollars on the 10th of each month. With our theme challenge for June being red, white and blue I wanted to create something Patriotic for our front door in preparation for the 4th of July. So, I headed to my craft closet and Hobby Lobby and here I am sharing my  DIY Red, White and Blue Door Decor.

Pressing Flowers And Leaves

Good Morning and welcome, I am so very happy that you are here! Today we are taking a little gander through the garden where we are going to be picking, and pressing some pansies. The key to vibrant pressed flowers and leaves is picking them at their peak, pressing them and then using them for a variety of decorative and craft projects. Let your imagination and creativty be your guide.


Colorado Cottage Kitchen Makeover|Plodding Along

Hello friends and welcome to segment one of Our Colorado Mountain Cottage. This is a mix of a Jemma Tale and a home makeover, because while my home was getting a physical makeover I was getting a spiritual one. Today we are going to take a look on how we took our rather dark and dreary Kitchen to light and bright and how plodding led me to spiritual growth. For those of you that have been with me on my blogging journey from the beginning, I want to give you a big virtual hug and say thank you for plodding along with me! I appreciate YOU!


A Dash of Patience and a Rhubarb Cake

In my memory of growing up on our Idaho Farm in the 50's there were many signs in nature that indicated the arrival of Spring. Robins began hopping about on spindly legs while scavenging open spaces for twigs as they prepared to homestead for the season. Wild asparagus began popping up along the ditch banks, and then there was the red effervescent Rhubarb plant, just begging to be popped into a cake or pie.
