In the Garden today answer: My first sunflower


Yes as my lovely friend Joan pointed out, I named the image first sunflower so it loaded on the computer with the image.  Great so I spoiled my own surprise. I always buy sunflowers each year in seed form and imagine rows of sunflowers. Each year, I forget to plant them.

Well this year, rather late, I threw about six seeds in and I was blessed with 4 sunflowers. I like the color of this one. It’s small in terms of Sunflower size but still beautiful to look at.

Have a blessed day!


In the Garden today: What did I see?



Hello!  I thought I would give you a test today. The picture above was taken in my garden this morning. Can you guess what it is? I will reveal what it is on Wednesday.


Fun Photos Friday #29: Being Productive.


Hmm..the boys are now back at school.  It’s a wonderful feeling being able to cross things off your list, prepare for the next day (lunches, clothes), make beds, do a load of laundry, actually get work done at my desk and then still have time for an hour of reading before the boys come home.  I do love how productive I can be while they are in school.  It lifts that daily burden and let’s me fly.

Today I am having another one of those days and I am going to cherish it.

I hope you are having a good day and have a great weekend!


Craft Haul on Etsy: Sequins from Calypso Cards


Hello Everyone! I have been back in bits and pieces. The boys officially started school today so that means I am back to work. I had decided to take the summer off and try to play a bit with the boys.  So my Etsy store is pretty low on crafty goodies.

As you may or may not know I am very into sequins lately. No, not on bell-bottom pants or my clothes but on my craft projects. So I have been on the hunt for more sequins and I came across a fellow Esty shop called, “Calypso Cards” and found some this shop had some great colors. I ordered these three different packs. The purple hues pack is called ‘Viola’ and oh my goodness, I can’t wait to use it. I love them and there is lot in the package. The orange, red, green yellow pack is called ‘Citrus’ and I think they will work for a lot of fall projects.  The pink, baby blue, lime green etc. package is called ‘Baby’ and I think it could be use for many other purposes too.

One of the things I love about shopping on Etsy is the connection. She sent me a handwritten note and a free gift with my purchase.  So if you have a chance, do check out the shop. I hope she continues to restock these beauties because I am sure to go back for more.

Have a blessed day!
