bouquet from my garden

I love gathering flowers from my garden!
And, I just happen to have a pretty vase from the thrift store:)
Happy Planting!

flower stalking

Life in the garden lately has been so inspiring.
I'm usually out taking pics...

The lilies below are from my mama's house.
She has an amazing green thumb.  
Aren't they beautiful?!?

style it up!

Lately, I've enjoyed styling some of my thrifty finds...
Like these amber bottles with pretty ranunculus blooms. 

Found this ironstone beauty recently!  Isn't she stunning?!
A few pieces of my pottery collection.  
Happiness is....finding this blue wooden backdrop at your family's farm.
And, then finding items at the thrift with pretty patina!
Found all these cuties while thrifting with my mama:)
That pretty blue background again!
What fun thrifty things have you found lately?
Happy Hunting, my friends!

spring scenes

I love the change of season.  It's so much fun to change up the decor, too!
I added some straw hats, a big market bag, and a few other springy things to our entryway.
And, of course that led to a photoshoot with my hat and flowers:)
And, then those flowers were moved to the bathroom.
I've also been sprucing up the back porch.
I found this pretty hydrangea for $5 in the clearance section.  
Looks so cute in that enamel bucket!
How are you decorating for spring?

studio time

Finally, some time in the studio!  
I've waited for inspiration for so long, and it finally arrived with spring colors.
Yay for making messes and long overdue inspiration!

oil pastel time
inspired by designs in crepe myrtle bark

Currently working on the ones below...
little acrylic abstracts on paper
inspired by some of my recent photographs 
 abstracts on canvas
inspired by the space found in between tree branches
Happy Spring!
