Foraging for Fall Flowers


Hey, there!  I know it has been a while since I have been in touch but, September has been a very busy month for me!  I wasn't expecting it to be this way and I am a bit off-kilter.  Last year at the end of August I wrote about a visit I made to a local pick-your-own flower farm and subsequently shared the arrangements I made with flowers I purchased there.  You can see that story here, if you would like.  Honestly, that was one of my favorite posts from last year.  I loved going to that farm.

Announcing Some Exciting News!



Hey, Guys!  It has been very busy in my world lately with the end of summer and the approaching of fall.  Every day this week has been scheduled with something.  My garden club started up on Monday.  My mom had an eye appointment on Tuesday.  Yesterday was a trip into the flower market with a Boston Harbor Cruise in the evening with my husband for a work related function.  On top of all that, I have been working on something exciting and am finally able to share it with you!

Decorating with Gourds and Pumpkins



Hey, everyone!  I hope you are enjoying September so far.  Life seems to have taken right off now that the summer is over with fall activities.  Before you know it, we will be doing some autumn decorating.  You can feel it in the air. As this week has progressed I have started thinking about buying mums and seasonal flowers.  The next thing to come will be the desire to place pumpkins and gourds all over the place!  So, today I thought we would start with a little fall decorating preview~

This week was one of those "getting back to reality" weeks for me.  There is one week (almost) of "real" summer left and I know that life as it has been over the summer with no schedules and no true commitments would have to come to an end at some point but, I am pretty sad about it.  However, what can you do?  You can't be on continual vacation forever, can you?


What You Can Do With $12 Worth of Grocery Store Flowers

Hey, Everyone!  Last week I shared my Fun End of the Summer Tablescape with you.  While I was writing that post, I thought it would also be fun to share the making of the centerpiece from that tablescape.  Unfortunately for me, I came to that revelation after I had taken all of my photos and written that post.  So, I do not have a step-by-step tutorial for you but, I think I can walk you through it anyway.
