My husband spoiled, and surprised me with a new camera that I'd been trying to save for.
multiple photos of everything that can be photographed, while I figure out it's many settings. (Professional photographers, avert your eyes while I make every mistake in the book please. Thankyouverymuch.)
themes? Um, cause I do.
I wanted something that reminded us all of spring, ('cause I'm still on that tangent right now) so I went with potted flowers.
Primroses. Simple and sweet.
spa treatments for my Mama, because she needed some pampering and good company.
good company. (giggle)
take home gift? It's kind of my house rule. I found these darling tall pots and saucers at Michael's for one dollar each! So I painted them white...
rustic look, and then placed a ninety-nine cent potted primrose in each pot. I carefully tucked some shredded book pages all around them. And voila, I had my theme and take-home gift for under $3.00.
piece of twine, and fastened a little cardboard initial, along with a sweet verse.
I repeat not, be complete with out many candles. I chose Spiced Pear from Pier 1, because it's my signature go-to house scent. I'd bathe in it if I could. But that might be weird. And I'm not weird.
napkin rings before I had children, and have used them only once in all that time. I keep forgetting I have them. Children don't exactly appreciate napkin rings. Who am I kidding? Children don't appreciate napkins.
shredded paper and twine. They complete me. In an odd sort of way.
given up sugar. Have I mentioned that recently? I've become boring without it.
garnishes we put in our water, make me want to tell you that my husband can tie a maraschino cherry stem in his mouth, in about ten seconds. I know, because I've timed him. It's like having my own personal circus freak. I might add, that my BFF can also do this. I'm surrounded by circus freaks.
I have a feeling someone is going to take my new camera away if this sort of thing keeps up.
