Memorial Day

Memorial Day....
a day to pay tribute to all those soldiers who gave of their lives while in military service.

Small words with big meaning from my heart...

Thank you.

My new friend.

Have you visited Sherry at Creations From My Heart? If you haven't, please let me introduce her. She's very creative, extremely talented, and ever so sweet. I've read and reread her posts because she packs them with tutorials and inspiration. She also has a show called "Fancy That" on Shelby TV. Be sure to scroll through the videos to see Sherry's videos. It's a great place to learn all types of things.

Sherry has been so very kind to share super friendly tutorials on things like lampshades, homemade gifts, and memory boards. Since I have a graduating senior and was in need of a special way to celebrate his day, I decided to tackle a memory board. It turned out great! If you're interested, here's her tutorial.

Then I ran across her tutorials on wreaths.You can find it here. She makes different ones for the various seasons and holidays and they are just gorgeous. They're full, colorful, and friendly! I decided to make one for my front door and I just love it! As always, she gives step-by-step instructions that make her projects so easy to follow. Here's just a quick peak of my wreath:

While I was making the wreath, I hung it on the inside of my back door...a great place to work and "see" how things were progressing.

When I was finished, I moved it to my front door.

I wanted something to coordinate with  my flowerbeds in the front yard.
This wreath fits that requirement plus it's large and happy!

I'll be back with another craft I made with my new friend!
Thanks Sherry!

I'd like to stay here a while...

Yes, I would like to have a seat in this comfy living room...looks relaxing, doesn't it?

This collection is from Pottery Barn. It's on the expensive I'm just window shopping {or cyber shopping}...OK...wishful thinking.

Or this room.
I think the big starfish caught my eye...and the pool...and the coral...and the lamp...and the soft, calming colors...


...this room.

It was the wall of windows that had me at "hello".
{Those pillows are spiffy too!}

Gotta love PB!
I hope you're having a happy, relaxing day.
Thanks for visiting.

A Little Touch of Blue

I have two special pieces I'd like to share with you today. They are both gifts from my mother, the first she gave to me as a graduation gift, it's a Lladro. It was my first piece and one I truly treasure. She is so delicate and the scene is so serene.

The blues are such a soft shade.
 I think it's the intricate details that just amaze me: 
the bench...

...her little basket and friend.
Even her hand is so dainty!

The second piece belonged to my great aunt.

It's also a Lladro.

So cute...with a little touch of blue...always makes me smile!

I'm joining Smiling Sally at her Blue Mondays. Be sure to stop by for all things blue!

Thanks for dropping by to visit.
Enjoy your day!
