Spring happens so quickly. I petals are falling from trees and blanketing lawns even though the flowers have only just bloomed. I haven’t even had a minute to take the good camera out into the yard to photograph our pretty flowers! I’ve been snapping away with my camera, though. It’s such a beautiful time of […]

blooming in august

Eric’s brother, Drew, was visiting from Seattle over the weekend. Both days, the temperature was in the mid-70s (I’m pretty sure that’s what people call perfect) so we spent some time on their parents’ deck, which afforded us a beautiful view of the garden (and Peter Rabbit). The mornings have been so cool lately, that […]

blooming in our yard

I’ve been really tired lately. Really, really tired. When I get home from work, all I want to do is sleep. But I have other things to do, like eat dinner, work on custom projects, and (most importantly) spend time in our yard. We’re totally in love with these nettles. They’re sorta crazy awesome, don’t you […]

These are the most beautiful roses I’ve ever seen. Know why? Go ahead guess. Answer: because they’re OURS. They’re in our yard! We totally own them! And they’re growing and blooming and gorgeous and they smell heavenly.

Before Wishes

Soon, this little yellow dandelion will become a fluffy ball of seeds just waiting to be blown away. Will you be making dandelion wishes? I always do. Here’s hoping they all come true. ♥

Stopping To Smell The Flowers

I’ve been working morning, noon, and night in preparation for the National Stationery Show next month. I’m very excited, but since there’s so much to do it would be all too easy to overwork myself. I don’t want to get to the show totally worn down and sick, so I’ve been making sure to stop […]

Yellow Flowers On A Wall

Yeah, it’s another flower picture. I just can help myself! It’s springtime, so it’s to be expected. (Right?) I took this one on one of the walks we took over the weekend.  I made some edits using a new online photo editor called PicMonkey. I usually use Photoshop, but I like that PicMonkey is online so […]

You’re Turning Violet

It was a gorgeous weekend, so we went for a few walks around the neighborhood. I’ve been noticing violets blooming for at least a week now, and every single time I see them I think of that scene from Willy Wonka. You know the one.  The one where Violet Beauregarde turns into a blueberry and her […]

Spring Is Happening Right Outside

I LOVE THIS TIME OF YEAR! (Caps completely necessary.) It’s just so unbelievably gorgeous out. Crisp air, flowering trees, grass that’s turning green. Everything’s just coming alive, and I find it quite exhilarating. I’m so busy preparing for the National Stationery Show next month that I’m not spending as much time outdoors as I’d like, but […]

Paperwhites On The Floor

Last Thursday morning, at 4 am, we woke to the sound of a horrible crash. It was really scary, and we got up to have a look around. At first we thought that maybe a picture had fallen off the wall, but no. Then we checked the kitchen to see if a glass had fallen […]
