In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Waiting.....for a visitor

I asked a neighbor the other day if I could come back on Thursday and pick some flowers for my house? Sure she said...and make sure you get some of the ferny leaves from the cosmos for filler.

So yesterday I went to get some flowers...and another neighbor I was stealing them! Awwwkward.

I brought them home to put in vases around the house.

Here's the way I think....if I have pretty flowers all over the house, the dirt and mess won't be noticed so much! What do you think? Good plan?

And by the way...which do you like best, the dark blue vase, or the ball jar vase? Because I've decided of all decor in my house, I like the flowers in the vases the best. So I'm thinking of getting rid of everything else when I move, just having family pics of vacays and such on the walls and flowers in vases for the decor.

But back to my plan.... You see, my cousin from Texas is coming to stay with us and I haven't seen her in over 30 years!

Her arrival is sometime today. Aren't these key-limes cute?

And this....pretty pink frosty mug...goes great with those key limes

and this beer!

I love the pink and green together

don't you?

So the house is as good as it's gonna get,

I'm anxiously awaiting the arrival of my cousin,

and relaxing when I probably should be cleaning!

  1. ha ha! My neighbor has a little garden next to their house...they have told me to help myself & they have been so busy lately they havent touched it... The tomatoes are calling me but I am afraid the neighbors that are always watching from across the street will think Im stealing! Almost grabbed one this morning!
    ps I prefer the Ball jar!
    Enjoy your family visits. Im off to finish moving a college daughter back to Indy...

  2. i like the ball jars. My Magaritaville Machine would be a good fit in the lineup.

  3. Love the flowers in the ball jar.Enjoy your cousin's visit.Have a great weekend,Jen

  4. Hey Cindy,
    I like the ball jar too....and the flowers are just so beautiful.
    Have a wonderful time with your family. She's lucky to stay with you have cold ones ready to go. I'll be over next!

    Have fun.

  5. I love the flowers in vases - I use ball jars for buttons, feathers, favorite rocks lol etc.

    and that beverage looks tasty - it looks to be the start of a good family reunion!

  6. I think I like the ball jar too. I guess the vase is nice for a more formal occassion, but I'm not much into formal, and she definitely isn't! I'll probably end up getting rid of some of the vases, but not all. I do use ball jars for just about everything. I'll have to do a post on them sometime!
