Chalk Painted Mason Jars~Can You Help Me?

Hello all, how are you? I have been a very busy blogger here, this Spring! I LOVE it!  The weather has been nice enough for beautiful blooms galore everywhere you look, yet cool enough that it's not uncomfortable and still a good time to have projects to do inside. It really is kind of the best of both worlds, if we weren't in the worst drought in history.
Either way, I need your HELP, please.?! 
I am asked on more occasions than one would think to make floral arrangements. Whether it be for a church function, holiday or family event. You have, no doubt seen some of my arrangements, here, by now. If not, where have you been? And, Welcome!
(Distressed with twine, just baby's breath)
I am very exited that one of my dear family members is to be married in July! His quite smart and savvy fiance is a pinner, a cook and a DIY'er, too, and quite gifted! So, when I heard she wanted a budget friendly country shabby-chic'ish reception, I, of course, asked what I could do.

My New Spring into Summer Wreath!

Do you take time to celebrate all the seasons in your life?  Do you know what I mean? We celebrate things like Christmas, 4th of July, New Year's Day, Birthday's, 21st, 30th, 40th (over the hill and ready to roll), 50th( half-century) Thanks so much, society, for that little reminder.  Heck we even celebrate Groundhog Day! If we go to all that trouble for those holidays, surely we should, in some way, celebrate the 'actual' Seasons in our lives.

Which, I guess, is my way of saying, I like each season to be represented and celebrated at my home, for everyone to see, and all that visit, to know that I am embracing this and every other day of the year. There is no such thing as just a plain old day! Every single moment we are given, is a blessing from God! So let's do it right and celebrate that! 


So, here is my celebration of Spring leading into Summer Wreath for 2015!  If you've never made a wreath & would like to see how easy they can be to assemble, check out my instructions on this previous Wreath posted

National Day of Prayer

Lord, we pray.


Blessed to be celebrating at my church in our little town & providing some beautiful, donated colors of our America the Beautiful. Yet,  Lord, I pray for all countries near and far that you would begin a revolution of healing and Faith.
In Jesus Name, I pray.

Exciting News and So Much Fun!

Do you all know Joy, from her awesome blog she calls "Yesterfood"?? Every week she and Wanda Ann, from Memories by the Mile throw a wonderful party, full of Inspiration, good recipes and fun crafts! It is called Treasure Box Tuesday. Don't you just love that name?!  For quite some time, I have been popping back and forth to Yesterfood and sharing my little creations with Joy and Wanda Ann. so much fun!


Was I ever surprised, this week, to find out that Joy had picked me & Shoestring Elegance to be her Blogger of the Month, for May!!! I cannot tell you how honored I was and am! So, as with most all things, I had to share the news with you!



Joy chose Shoestring Elegance and Wanda Ann chose The Lou Lou Girls! If you have not had the pleasure of meeting all these incredibly talented Ladies, may I suggest you click on some of the links I've put, here, in this post and go take a good look? I guarantee you will enjoy yourself! They have never disappointed me and  I am always Inspired!


Joy even "fancied up" my little Blog button and is displaying it on her sidebar for this month!! Now I ask you, How Blessed am I?  It seems, to me, beyond measure, Not just because I'm Joy's Blogger of the month, but because God has blessed me abundantly with wonderful women in this whole Blogging thing that have encouraged, lifted and supported me, beyond my own imagination!
Happy Tuesday to you all! May you all be Blessed with friends and supported with encouragement that strengthens you to continue with what Inspires you!

DIY Chalk Paint Tray With Transfer: MY Failure & Victory!

This post is way overdue. I have, actually, had this tray for almost two years. It has gone through quite a few changes, before I finally got back to business and settled on this as my final tray. And, I have to say I am truly enjoying it now!
