More Flowers And Crafting

Hello, girls!  Nothing new here.  Still picking flowers.
And I'm still putting them in little vases on my kitchen window sill!.

And I've been making lots of button ball garlands as gifts and for trade!  I thought this jar full of rag balls looked so cute that I had to snap a pic!

There are days that I feel like I live a charmed life and then there are those OTHER days!  I like to highlight the good ones.  

Thanks for coming by!

Oh my - your flowers! How beautiful!
After living in the desert for 25 years, and now living in the mountains, I can plant lots of different kinds of plants - and I think we have a lilac tree - and one of my bushes has white flowers like those you show - but, I don't know what they are. The bees just LUV them, though!
Holly - did you ever make a tutorial for your little balls? Sooooo cute!

Hey Holly! I haven't forgotten about our conversation. I haven't had much time to go through my Pyrex to see what I'd like to trade. But, I definitely will soon and get back with you! Hope you are doing well. :)

I bet it smells real nice on that windowsill! And I think that every time you give away or trade some balls, you need to replenish the jar with more, because that looks so darn cute!

Gorgeous flowers! Are there lilacs? If not, what are the white ones? So pretty! Love your jar too, you always have such cute things. :) Pam

I am so jealous of your lilacs! Hope you are having more good days than bad, I know you mentioned the problems with your son, I am so sorry you have to walk this road!

Any daisies in there? She loves me, she loves me not, she loves him!!! I always love a story with a happy ending! This year I am falling in love with flowers too. They make my heart glad.

No, I didn't get the message about the ball garlands, not sure why but try, try again!

Happy Thursday from way out west. JJ

Simply Shelley said...

Your flowers are so pretty. I love the way the little balls look in the jar. You should keep that as a permanent display. Yes, in real life we all have days that we'd rather forget. I try not to blog about those, either.
