Hello everyone! Today I am happy to be sharing a little spring wreath tutorial for my latest wreath design, “Bonnie Blue Roses and Thistle.” In my post, Floral Arranging: Finding Inspiration In The Little Things, I discuss how I often use small treasures or one particular flower type to inspire a floral arrangement or wreath design. A little bird and some bonnie (pretty) Scottish thistle and blue roses were the inspiration for this natural looking, Celtic-themed spring wreath.
It’s tulip time! Tulips are my favorite flower! They only bloom for about a month and I am always sad to see them go in late spring. Cut tulips are also short lived, but through trial and error I have discovered four easy tips to make tulips last longer and I am happy to share them with you!
In my previous post I shared these lovely white tulips that I received for my birthday. Anytime I have fresh tulips I like to make them last as long as possible. Over the years I have found a few little tricks to keep them around the house for a few extra days.
Friday was my birthday so I treated myself to a little junkin’. First I hit my favorite consignment shop where I found three very old ironstone mugs. I actually went looking specifically for ironstone mugs, so it must have been my birthday luck!
Would you like to be able to clean your microwave and sink in only five minutes with little effort? It can be done! Over time I have learned to multi-task for effective house keeping and reducing clutter, and I have my kitchen down to a science.
I absolutely love having a clean kitchen, but unfortunately it doesn’t clean itself. Our family has multiple food sensitivities so nearly every meal is homemade. While the family loves a good homemadeallergy-friendly casserole, that means dirtying a lot of c dishes and utensils, and with a hectic schedule and the kitchen could potentially get out of control very fast. While a little mess and clutter is normal, and nothing to worry about. Too much is something else. A messy kitchen can quickly become a breeding ground for bacteria. Germs can grow and spread, mold can infiltrate, and you might even start to spot bugs and even rats taking home in your family’s kitchen. Luckily you can prevent these issues with routine cleaning! Thanks to a few quick and easy cleaning methods and a little multi-tasking our kitchen does stay clean most of the time.
