FINALLY! I finally downloaded pictures from the past 3 weeks onto my laptop! Here is what I have been up to...
spending a lot of time on my front porch with Brad in our new wicker rockers...

hosting family barbeques (and letting my mom take sweet pictures of us)

taking my floral arranging class - this is the first thing I made in class - it's a silk arrangement in an antique basket to go in my bedroom...not too shabby, right?

working on restoring this old cabinet from my great great grandparents' home - I had to trace the design on the cabinet doors - it's a long project, but it will be SO adorable when I finish!
helping my mom do flower arrangements for a friend's party - this is one of my favorites - everything came from a yard: daisy wildflowers, oak leaf hydrangeas, and purple verbena!
another arrangement with magnolia blooms - has anyone noticed how BEAUTIFUL the magnolias are doing right now???
another arrangement of lillies and roses - I love the colors!

I have been really busy for the past couple of weeks, and I am getting to do a lot of things I have been putting off for a while. I am going back to work tomorrow morning at the shop, and I couldn't be more excited! Then tomorrow night, I have my floral arranging class, and we're making WREATHS!!!!

Who's excited??? THIS girl is!

Blessings, y'all!


  1. Sweet Lee Lee ~ I am so happy that things are going well ;)! I ADORE the antique cabinet and can't wait to see it all finished!

  2. Speaking of magnolias, something really neat to do is just get one nice magnolia bloom and put it in a small vase. It looks beautiful and simple and has PLENTY of fragrance!

    My stepmother did this, among other little arrangements, for a girly afternoon get-together at our house, and it was so cute!

  3. I love magnolias, they are so pretty!! I can't wait to see the cabinet.
