Little Flower Picker

This sweet little face is hiding behind my flower pot because he knows he is doing something he shouldn't be doing. This little boy LOVES to pick flowers and I will be shocked if there are any flowers left after his daily plucking fest! I can't be mad at him because he usually brings them to me!!

Herb Planter

After several years of "letting my house go," I am on a mission to get things spruced up a little and I plan on sharing some of my projects along the way! After Daniel was born, decorating the house or updating things was LOW on my to do list. For the past few years, just surviving, feeding the Butler Clan and making sure we have clean underwear and socks each day was at the top of the list.

I decided to take a planter I've had for many years and create a little "herb garden" if you will, for the back patio. I purchased the herbs and planted them, then realized how ugly the plastic garden markers looked. So I went in the yard, found a tree limb that had some nice moss growing on it, shaved down the end with an Xacto knife and labeled them with a Sharpie. I love how it turned out!


I thought I'd share with you the silhouettes framed and hanging in the dining room.

Helping a Friend

One of Georgie's friends came to school today sad because her dog had died. Sweet Georgie made this card and picture for her friend. I think what she said is just perfect.
