A Perfect Robin's Nest

Lots of nesting going on around our house. We found this nest in the corner of backyard swing. What a place for a nest! The eggs inside are the most beautiful Robin's Egg Blue. Great inspiration for my nest paintings.

Simply Baby's Breath

One of my favorites - never used to be.   I used to toss the baby's breath from my flower arrangements. Now, I love it on it's own. So pretty, like lace.

Last weekend we celebrated my daughter's First Holy Communion. Thought this would make a pretty entrance to our backyard party.  Would be beautiful for an outdoor wedding too.

Simple, inexpensive, and elegant.

In a gate basket...

In a wire basket with burlap on a farm table (of course)...

I have used them in mason jars placed inside a wood!

It also makes a beautiful flower wreath for a special Communion girl.

Still working on more photos from France!  Coming soon...
