May flowers... and a little GIVEAWAY!

 As is customary, I'm here to talk about mostly nonsense, immediately after a heart-to-heart.

I showed some photos of my son chopping up a wisteria vine in my previous post.  Don't worry, we told him to do that. It finally bloomed last year for me too. That only took about five years which proves what a horrible gardener I am.  It had to happen though, because my man and I are beginning a project in the backyard that we've been putting off the entire time we've lived here.  I'm pretty sure we have the worst backyard in the neighborhood, thanks to a digging, landscape-fabric ripping up dog.  She actually digs for it then yanks it all out.  It's a good thing she's cute.

 Anyhow, our big project means that we'll be moving those big landscaping bricks (not sure what they are called?) around, and putting a short fence to protect the garden, because if we don't my family won't have any veggies to eat this Summer.  Darn dog! We have four huge raised beds and honestly it's always been too many for me.  We are taking out two of the boxes... and making a surprise with some of those extra landscaping bricks!  I can't wait.  I have a feeling this is going to take a few weekends... but I'm itching to get my seeds in the ground and plant my cutting garden alongside my veggies! 
 To tie me over, I just listed the most fun thing in my shop. A print of those sweet flowers in the blue jar, that I bought for Ava's birthday party.  They were so pretty (ranuculus are some of my favorites) and have lasted forever.  I only have a few left but I snapped a photo of them when they were at their peak, and loved it so much I am offering it in my shop as either a photo print or a wrapped canvas.

 

 

 Poor flowers... only a few left....

The canvas I'm offering is so pretty, the photos don't do it justice.  I honestly sat there and stared at it last night.  The canvas has a self leveling hanger and comes with two of those little non-slip pads so it will stay put on your wall (Love that!) and is one inch thick.  It comes sized at 12x16" but larger sizes can be custom ordered.

Kinda makes me feel like summer is here already.  (Can be purchased here.)
 

If you'd rather, here's the print, which can be purchased here!  What is it, about cheery flowers?  They sure make me smile. 
And just because... it's almost the weekend, and the sun has been shining this week I thought we could use a giveaway.  I know it's not a big thing, but it makes me smile and I know a lot of you could use that too.  So, I'm giving away one of these sweet golden "The best things in life are unseen. That's why we close our eyes when we kiss, laugh and dream" prints (above) to TWO people!  It looks darling hung with washi tape on the refrigerator... or framed in an 11x14 sized frame. (Watermark won't be seen on the print you win of course. Just saying.  So you know.)

All you have to do is leave a comment and of course, you can get extra entries for blogging, tweeting, pinning, Facebooking, Instagraming or whatever else there is.  Just make sure and leave a separate comment for each one!  (And please leave your comments here- comments left on Facebook or emailed to me directly won't get chosen, as I use random.org to choose the winner.)

Happy almost weekend you guys!!

  5. LOVE the flower print on canvas. Beautiful!

    Just got my new cookbook yesterday (the Cleveleand's Chefs cookbook that I won on your blog). It looks amazing! I can't wait to try out some of the new recipes. Haven't found any Gluten Free ones yet, though, to invite you over for. :)

    Hugs!

  6. Earlier today, I hung up a little artwork that I printed on scrapbook paper. And of course I used some black with white polka dot washi tape. Forget the scotch tape on the back! Let the tape show and be fun!
