Re-cycled boxes.

I like how these boxes turned out, kinda sweet, don't you think. My mom was going to throw them away, I think they're chocolate boxes. They were clean inside, but smelled like chocolate and still do. Why get rid of my favorite food scent, lol. I'm really getting into the color blue, I love it. I decided to keep my junky junky art jewelry in them.

Sweet little blessings.

Hi friends, I want to share with you some goodness. This beautiful Valentine's day card I received from my sweet bloggie friend Bobbie Lynn. You must take a peek at her blog, she makes the most beautiful cards. I can't wait to see her Roses this year, she also loves to garden. 

I love the paper that she used and  this image is so cute.

What a super sweet blessing I just received from my Facebook friend Esme Mike. She is an amazing talented artist, anything she touches turns into gorgeousness. The tags are precious, but that little heart is so soft and tender looking. Thank you Esme for thinking of me.

Thanking God for this beautiful weather.

I'm keeping all my friends from up north in my prayers. I know you've been having a brutal winter, just hang in there a little bit longer. You will soon be having the most beautiful spring ever. In the mean time I hope these picture will warm you up a bit.  

We've been having great weather here in south Florida. It's been unusually cool for about 3 months now and that's a real treat for us. I've been playing in the garden as much as I can, because come summer you won't catch me doing any garden work what so ever. 
The best part about garden work is sitting down at the end of the day and just take it all in. 

                                                             Even the moon was perfect.

Happy LOVE week.

I can't believe it's going to be Valentines day already, this year is going to fly by too. I'm planning on doing a little baking for my honey, we'll see how that goes. I haven't baked in a while and I miss it. So far the time management thing that I started this year is working very well for me.  
This is also one of my favorite time of year to peek into some of my friend's blogs. I love seeing valentines day projects and home decor idea. These ladies out her in blogglandia are truly amazing.

These are the new pieces that I've added to my collection this year, my favorite is that shabby pink heart. Off to visit some blogs.

Garden beauties basking in the beautiful sun.

These pictures I took at dusk, my favorite time to take pictures of the garden. This time a year in south Florida means cool sunny days and cooler nights. This truly is my favorite time of year to work in the garden. Most of my cleaning and pruning is all done and now I can just enjoy the garden. God know that in mid summer, no gardening for me, just fun in the pool. I think I enjoy so much this time of year because our summers are brutal. I hope you enjoy these beauties.

Working in the garden, my favorite thing to do.

So far so good, I've been right on schedule with my garden work. I had a wonderful day today, all I did was played with dirty, lol. This is my beautiful Castor Bean plant. She only blooms once a year, and so worth the wait. Will have pictures soon of our vegetable garden. I don't have a lot of space for it, but I did the best I could.

More shabby flowers.

Had totally forgot to post these sweet shabby flowers. I want to make some in red for Valentines day. I can't believe that I have Valentine on my mind. It seams like time just flies by for me latently. Well I'm not going to question it, just going with the flow.
I'm challenging my self to work and use what I already have. I always start the year that way and by March I'm buying new supplies. These I created with scarp pieces of laces, trims and fabrics and some how it all seams to blend and work. I think they will make great little gifts or maybe to embellish a package , or even on a card.

Prime gardening weather in South Florida.

Now that the Christmas holidays are all behind and everything is put away, yay for me. I want to concentrate on our garden, I so enjoy garden work. Just me, my plants and my thoughts.  This is the best time of year to be in Miami. Our weather is a blessing, cool days and cooler nights. Today I spend the entire day working on  our back yard. Cleaning things up a bit and trying to cut back some of our huge Areca palms. I actually got a lot accomplished and I'll share it latter. But now for some pretty pictures. 
I heard my neighbor working on her back yard so I went for a visit, camera in hand of course. Her teenage son is going all organic and has started an organic garden area with recyclable containers and materials. He's picking up some horse manure and is letting me have some, best fertilizer ever, can't wait. He also let me have 2 containers of lettuces, that I'm so looking forward to planting tomorrow. They're doing an amazing job, it's going to look great.

These are her Orchids,  full bloomed in January, amazing.
