Had too much fun!

Sorry for the delay in getting my newest creations posted but I have been having such a wonderful time with my kids and The Accountant. Spring Break has been so much fun. Even though we didn't hit the beach we managed to keep ourselves busy and The Accountant even took three days off of work (that in itself is amazing).

Went to see Monsters VS Aliens with the cool 3D glasses. We took the train into Chicago to the Field Museum and saw The Real Pirates, Dinosaurs and lots of dead things. We did bowling, roller skating and bumper cars. After all that fun my parents had the kids for a sleep over and let The Accountant and Me have a date night.

The house is a wreck and I am still recovering but I have to say...this parenting thing is pretty neat. The kids are at a point where we can have fun discussions and share ideas together and the dynamics of the relationships are evolving. On our date night we sat back and realized just how blessed we are.

OK on to the other fun stuff I did. Here are the three latest floral arrangements. I had to give The Accountant lessons in the art of artificial flower arranging and unfortunately he is learning how much I spend on these frivolities that make our home what it is. Oh well...

First one I am in love with, I found myself drawn to monochromatic color schemes this year. Last years arrangements were made of multiple colors all in spring hues. I have to say this batch looks much better...plus there are so many new varieties of flowers out there, it's hard to hold back.


The next two are much smaller in scale but still perfect for the front or back door. They just make me happy to look at them.




I will be putting them on Etsy today...and if you ever wanted something custom I would be happy to create it. I am forever collecting silk flowers and have a good assortment available. Enjoy the colors!

These are absoulutly beautiful! You are an amazing designer! I love all of them, the last one is my favorite! I went to Trader Joes to find those branches...they didn't have any here, I bet it is only for certain areas. I did however, get a great deal on daffodils, baby pink roses and an arragement of flowrs done in the whites and greens. Thanks for the head's up!

Hugs to you,

Sounds like you guys had a great break and that the accountant could take a break this time of year is amazing. Beautiful arrangements.

Sounds like a wonderful time with your family, and I am sure your hubby is so busy so the time off was probably well enjoyed!! The flowers look lovely as always!
