Getting back to it...

The flu bug bit me ! I don't like to be sick...like all other mom's I don't have the time to be sick. But after a number of days being "down" I am getting back into the swing of things. I wanted to share with you some yummylicious trims I picked up at an antique fair a few weeks back. I love these old metal pieces. They have such great weight and patina to them.


And I'm super excited that the weather is warming. About 3 weeks ago I had the boys dig me 8 big holes so I could plant climbing roses. I have a large pergola in the back and I want it to be covered. Well guess what? The branches are starting to sprout...Yippee!!

So right now they look like this....


And soon they will look like this...green thumbs crossed...(well at least I hope they will be green).


Happy Thursday !

Love the trims Colleen. You will have fun creating with those.

And your roses will be beautiful!
So nice that it is finally warming up~not quite as warm where we are...but hopefully we will get there soon!

Have a great weekend!
