Random Bits

Hello my Dears!
Just a simple post filled with random goodness! 

We put a beautiful creation in our bouganvillea today.....you can't see it, but she decorated the inside for the birds to enjoy, too...
...and just in case they didn't know it was for them...she labeled it...haha!

We sat on the porch and admired the happy flowers....

I've decided a pot filled to the brim with pansies is going to always be a Spring tradition!
I love having them by the front door welcoming me home ;)

Those flowers smell so wonderful when you walk by them....

The roses are in full bloom now, too :)

I've been lucky enough to receive 2 great packages in the last 2 days!

These beautiful earrings are from a trade I did with Julie at Mermaiden Creations...that big stone is Rainbow Flourite..a lot heavier than I was expecting..haha!  But it is gorgeous!

...and look at what wonderful Alia at Buccaneers and Ballgowns sent to me!  I won her Teatime Giveaway and she put together a special package based on my tea choice and love of Nature and the color green :)

Isn't that creamer just adorable!


I recently did some seed packet Wedding Favors for my friend Allison at Thrifty Crafting (she's getting married in May!)...and I had so much fun making them, that I decided to fold more envies to put in my shop....

Kinda therapeutic to cut and fold over and over...plus, it's so funny how a sheet of paper isn't nearly as exciting as when it becomes an envelope...and suddenly...my mind starts thinking about all the fun stuff to put inside...heehee!


I made a set called "Domestic Bliss"....the previous owners of the house left some things behind...including a bunch of loose recipes from an old cookbook.  I saved them...not because I was interested in cooking (when am I ever interested in cooking?..haha!) but because the illustrations were so cute and the pages were so nicely stained with age and use.  I even love how the Cook wrote on the pages when she approved of the recipe :)

I'm really enjoying these!  Thinking of making some out of Christmas paper and numbering them for a version of an Advent Calendar...hmmm......

Hope you've been enjoying random bits of pleasure, too!  You deserve it!!
Love ya' guys,
Cameron
