here's a sneak peak!
this weekend was gorgeous, these were taken yesterday, i so love living minutes from the beach! we were at the north end and there weren't many people, the last shot has some funky clouds but we didn't get any rain until this morning around 8am and that was only a few minute downpour and nothing but sunshine since!
and she loves it! I have 3 sizes that I make and i'm getting ready to make more for her older sister!
yes, i have started on christmas! that time of year stresses me out to the max, so i thought i'd start early like i use to. i saw this online, don't remember where, i think the picture i have had a shadow on it making the ribbon look tan. i will make more with white ribbon next go round. the letter is sequins, you can't really tell from the photo. i think it's pretty self explanatory of how to make, but if you have any questions let me know. are you getting ready early this year? if so, what have you made so far?
i just had to share this link, i've been wanting to learn for a while now.
i got this for free because the owner said it had been exposed to mold. well i know that a little bit of bleach can remove mold in an instant so i gladly accepted it! growing up in charleston, sc has many benefits and combating mold is one of them! she also said her grandfather made this and i could never give away something my grandfather made. so here's what I've done with it. The 2nd photo are palm bark, the 3rd are all shells I found and a cool candle holder I also found for next to nothing. The 4th are finger starfish I purchased to use in wrapping at Christmas!
i made these for some friends getting ready to have babies. notice the flip flop ribbon - that's so they can think about me at the beach!
is this not the cutest idea ever for fathers day! find the directions here.
it was the nc azalea festival held in wilmington, nc and let me tell you, it was wonderful. sunday was the last day, it was early and not too crowded. it was pretty perfect. here are a few photo's i shot.

hooray! the azalea festival is going on in wilmington, north carolina. i sure do love this weather. if you've never been, it's worth it to visit. check out the website here. these azaleas are right outside of my front door.
i came home with fabric, rosemary, vinca vines and a ground cover that i don't know the name of. i wanted soooooo many things! here are a few nice shots of some of what they had.
one of my babies - molson - turns 8 today! I rescued him when he was 3 and it's been ahhhhmazing. he is so loving. "they" said he is part dalmatian and part australian cattle dog. happy birthday sweet boy.
