I'm Ready to Plant

Aren't these beautiful? I am so ready to plant flowers. Won't be long now. Here in Indiana, they say we're safe from frost after Mother's Day. Yay!

Quilted Scrap Bag

Just posted in my shop. Thanks so much for all the kind comments about my recent scrappy creations.

Hooray for Frito Lay!

Okay, so i bought a bag of these Sun Chips. I've never tried them before and I really like the idea of a compostable bag. Turns out they are really tasty, but...
Don't try sneaking them from the cupboard or taking them into the movie theater because everyone within a 5 mile radius will hear you. Ha! The bag is really loud, I mean, REALLY LOUD!

Anyway, way to go Frito Lay! I salute you for your efforts to make this a healthier planet.

Jade Tiger Lenten Rose

I just found a perennial I must add to my shade garden. We already have some lenten roses and they do so well in the shade. Isn't it beautiful. I love the color and the delicate magenta edges.

I found this one on the Better Homes and Gardens website. "Part of the Winter Jewels series, 'Jade Tiger' offers amazing double green flowers in late winter and early spring. Because it's poisonous, this perennial is left alone by deer, rabbits, and other animal pests.
Name: Helleborus Winter Jewels 'Jade Tiger'
Growing conditions: Shade and moist, well-drained soil
Size: To 20 inches tall and 24 inches wide
Zones: 4-8
Grow it with: Create early-season contrast in the garden by planting this with a rich purple Lenten rose.
Available from seed: No"

Yellow Scrap Bag

Okay, are you tired of them yet? I just can't stop sewing with my scraps. I love this one.

Another Scrap Zipper Pouch

I'm really getting a kick out of these scrap bags. Though, it doesn't seem to be making much of a dent in the scrap bag. Oh well, hope you enjoy them too!

One Moment Week #3

My one moment this week happened just a few minutes ago. I was all depressed about the weather report for the weekend. It's supposed to rain both Saturday and Sunday. I was standing at my back door looking out at the woods and realized how beautiful everything looks wet. Don't you agree?

Some Flowers and a New Barrel

Just some spring flowers to share with everyone. And, our new rain barrel. How cool is this. I can water my plants without having to unwind my hose and drag it around the yard. Yay!

Not Just Another Hallmark Holiday

I must admit that I am one of those people who doesn't observe those silly little Hallmark holidays like Sweetest Day, Grandparent's Day, Bosses Day and Administrative Professionals Day (even though I am one). I really think those days were created to milk us all out of $2.50 for the obligatory greeting card. But, when it comes to days like today...Earth Day, I say YES! I can get behind this one completely.

I resolve to live a more earth friendly lifestyle by recycling, re-using, re-purposing, walking instead of driving, composting, collecting rain water for watering plants, using fabric grocery bags, etc. Here are some great websites to get you started on your way to a "greener" existence.

Beautiful Batik Treasury

Thanks to FabricFascination for including my bag in this treasury.
om [one moment] meet up

My good friend and talented artist Linda, over at a la mode, has come up with the greatest idea. She is organizing a group of bloggers and encouraging us to stop and smell the roses. And, when we do, share what we "smelled". Ha! I think it's fabulous! We all live such hectic, chaotic, quick lives and we often forget to take note of the simplest, most lovely things.

Here is my "one moment" from today.

Wouldn't you love to live the life of a cat? Here is our lovely Grizabella basking in the sunlight that comes through our front windows. Ah, the life!

What an absolutely beautiful weekend we had. We went for a long walk on Saturday and on Sunday we worked in the yard. I power washed my deck too. Maybe even started a little tan. Yay! Enjoy my collage. I'm constantly amazed at the talent I find on Etsy.

Our sweet Griz has recovered from her surgery. She likes to eat sewing, yeah. Well, I guess it's the thread on the needle that really attracts her. Now we have to figure out how to keep her out of the sewing room. Anyway, she's back to her old self. Yay!
