If You Give a Girl a Vase…..

She will surely feel the need to go get flowers for it immediately and post-pone her trip with her BFF to Sam’s. She will have no trouble convincing her BFF of this plan as this will allow her to help pick out the flowers for said vase.  They will then look at the clock and realize it would be wrong not to go out of their way to find a Starbucks to get a cup of java to enjoy while at Sam’s, only to drink it all before they get there. While at Sam’s they will be forced to sample 4 different types of fudge and walk away with the Chocolate Pecan Fudge and a sugar high.

Yup, that’s pretty much what happened the other day. Kathy knows I’m redoing our room in a garden theme so when she saw this vase, she knew I’d love it. And she was right.

Isn’t it just the cutest?



Meanwhile my grandmother’s old watering can was begging for a little attention so I got some new flowers for it too. I really like how it turned out.


I’m really liking the way our room is turning out. It’s a happy place. My husband has been so cool about it. He’s basically letting me do whatever I want in there. Yay, me!

I’m hoping to get our old furniture painted this week and then I’ll be ready for the big reveal.

Have a FABULOUS day my friends.
