You must have heard it ... Snow... Snow.... and some more SNOW!
This cold weather and the fact that I've been feeling sick (just a cold, with the normal aches they bring), has made me feel a bit down. :(
I guess it's normal during this time of year.
That's why I decided to force Spring into our home.
The same old window from my Valentine mantel was used again. The idea of using the botanical prints came from Debra, I've always loved this project of hers. The free botanical prints can be found right HERE.
While reading a magazine the words Fresh Growth (Font: "Always in my heart") caught my eye, that's the title I gave my mantel. It was done on a scrap piece of bead-board with Sharpies.
The green vases from one of my thrifty finds last year came in handy.
Filled with flowers, they put a huge smile on my face.
The little green bottles were filled with three different kinds of water...
Water with added sugar...
And water with vinegar. Kind of a science experiment to find out which way the flowers last longest. The idea came from my son who is doing a similar experiment at school this year.
We'll see. ;)
For now they're making me feel much better that's for sure.
