Spring has sprung

Sharing a little bit of spring from around my house today,  I love my Lilac tree and  snowball bush, both are in bloom.  I found the pretty glass globe with the bird on top at TJ Maxx, the yellow plate is from Ben Franklin's.  I made a little bird's nest display inside of the globe complete with mossy rocks, a nest with eggs inside. 

Other exciting happenings was Shelby's Prom!  Here she is below with her very good friend Jadin. They had a wonderful time.  There were 45 couples, it took three buses to get them into Seattle for dinner at Salty's on Alki, then off to the Prom at the Seattle Aquarium.  She said it was a "magical" night.  Aaahh to be young again!

Jadin and Shelby

Here's all 45 girls in "rainbow" order

Bloomin' Bouquet

                                          Take a look at the video to see the how to's!

Say thank you with this no-maintenance bouquet. There's no watering, no weeding-just enjoying! This easy-to-assemble kit comes complete with the petals, stems, and buttons to create the flowers, as well as four different tags to make this the perfect gift for any occasion. All you need is some paper, ribbon or a vase to add the finishing touches to the bouquet.
As if that weren't enough, the kit contains a "baker's dozen"! This means you can create and give (or keep) a dozen flowers, and have a bonus flower left over to pass along to someone new! Give it to someone you wouldn't normally think of: a teller at the bank, a grocery store clerk, or the librarian at your local library.
