Spring "mantle"

We do not have a mantle in this house, so I decorated this little table and mirror for the holidays


i had this pom pom garland to hang on the mirror 
I printed this spring banner off the internet
added a cute little spring printable on a clipboard

coupled with these sweet salt and pepper shakers fish, a few pom pom flowers and butterflies from the dollar tree (love that place)
There you have a simple but cute spring display!

Happy Earth Day!
Go hug a tree

Weekend Wrap Up

So far we have had a very productive weekend
I worked on my Spring mirror and table (more pics of it this week)
 then headed outside with the kitties, to get the garden planted 
 we planted tomatoes, peppers, okra, squash, green beans, lettuce and sunflowers 
 it does not look that cute right now but its still a work in process
 after we finished we decide it would be a good fire pit night

 Fig was a big help gathering the fire wood lol



We grilled chicken and pineapple with roast potatoes on the side
and just sat back to enjoy a beautiful night!

Today we are stuck in the house because of rain so I think I will read and be lazy!

Life with Migraines


I don't share a whole lot of "real life" struggles on here but hey we all know life is not gardening and cute shoes.
I have suffered from migraines since I was ten years old, been on meds etc. 
After Noah was born (18 yrs ago) I had the migraines under control with some here and there but off the meds

Well in the last 6 months they are back full blown like one a week!
Its affecting my life now and I am so frustrated!

I am asking for prayers, good vibes, or any advice!

Thanks

Garden Bench

In my last post I mentioned that I really want to have a herb garden so, I saw this really cute garden bench on pinterest 
oh yeah I can do this and I think for very little money
my brother in law gave us some rock borders last year, so a plan came together

with some shelving board I already had
I now have me the cutest garden bench and the herbs are loving it, we see will how they are doing around July in the Georgia heat!


Whatcha' think?

Easter with the Family

We had Easter at my sister's house it was so much fun!
 we had lots of great food, which I did not get a picture of because I was to busy eating

 tried to get a picture of the grand kids 
 but none of them were ever looking at the right camera but hey that's ok
 and the hunt begins (and yes my 18 yr was in on the hunt)



 but he did give his little cousin one of the prize eggs he found
 this cake my sister baked, brings back so many childhood Easters, my mama would bake this and I thought it was the coolest thing ever!
 the good ole Easter Bunny even paid me a visit,
 a hula hoop and a garden gnome! 
(my husband is the best)
I hope everyone had an awesome Easter!

Spring

Spring is here! Yay
Everyone was home on Friday, we did a lot of yard work
 Grilled, snacked
 and just enjoyed the beauty of the day
I am determined to have great herbs this year, I have never had much luck and advice? (I bought more basil and add marigolds)







I hope everyone is having a great Easter Weekend
