the "Birthday Bouquet"...

created for Princess #1's "thoughtful gift"...
(you can read more about our "thoughtful gift" tradition here and here)

using this tutorial as basic inspiration...
I did make a few changes,
I stitched a tube-like piece of fabric to create finished edges,
 as well as, a more "full" flower...

I added a few pieces of chenille ribbon to the stems too...

and then created another and another and another...
13 flowers in all!
One flower to celebrate each precious year!

I placed them in a french flower bucket,
tied with vintage velvet ric-rac and three pom-poms I made-
all with love,
for our now *teenage* Princess #1!

How is it time only seems to go faster?-
and children become almost 'grown' in the blink of an eye!

Have a happy day!
Many Blessings!

how to make it...


1. turn pajamas inside-out for bedtime
2. create a "snow request" picture and place on the door step
3. fills bowls of ice and go outside and toss in the air
while saying, "let it snow! let it snow!"
4. go to sleep and dream of it snowing

and then wake up to this!...
a beautiful blanket of

guaranteed to work every time!
(at least when a winter storm warning has been issued! *wink*)

off to enjoy another "snow day"...
Have a happy day!
Many Blessings!

The way I see it...

muffins are really...

just ugly cupcakes!-

which reminds me...
it's what's on the inside that really counts!

Hoping your weekend is simply delightful!
Many Blessings!
