Your ATC store. My take on this kit.

This is the FREE kit for this month over at YOUR ATC STORE.  I so love this theme, our challenge is to create an ATC using just what's in the kit. But of course, when you get your kit you can add flowers, metals and just about anything you like. I love the images Lisa put in the kit, they are so cute.

Just for fun flowers.

These flowers were respired by some of my crafty friends. They are made out of scraps pieces of laces and trims. I think they will make for create gifts and I can always use them on crafty project.

Been working on my yard.

It's that time of year again for us here in south Florida. This is our spring time of a sort, lol. It's still very hot, but the cleaning has begun. I've got great plans for my garden this year, I've neglected it these past couple of years. Not really doing anything major other than a big cleaning and cutting back on things that are out of control. I don't know why that relaxes me so, to cut things back????
I've started lots of things from seed and I have been babying them with lots of TLC.

Started to freshen up the beds with my potting mixture that seams to work for me. Equal parts of a good potting mix, cow manor and Pet moss. My secret weapon.  

This is my maintenance free corner, I needed a little change here. Maybe Bromeliads ??? 

This is one of the main reasons I love planting in the grounds, I love the look of mulch and red is my fav. I think it looks so pretty against the green, besides all the other benefits like keeping it a bit cooler and controlling the dreaded weeds.

This has been the wettest season ever here in Miami. It's still raining, but the great benefit of it, are my crocus. They bloom every time it rains and I just think they're so beautiful.

My Shabbylishious DT project.

This is my design team project for Shabbylishious. I used a little dress form that my friend Beth found for me in her hunts. I can't believe someone got rid of this cute little thing. I got to use and play with Lele's  beautiful laces and flowers and this is what I came up with.

Rain rain go away already.

It's been such a wet summer here is south Florida. It's been raining for about 3 months, no kidding. I can't take it anymore, I need to work on my garden. I need to feel the dirt in my hands, I know I'm weird that way.
Here are a few pictures I managed to take on a rare sunny day. I can't wait to start planting my seeds, but it's way too hot still. In the meantime I think I'll head over and enjoy Boobbie Lynn's garden.

Beautiful ATCs from a sweet friend.

Look at the beautiful card and ATCs that i received from my sweet friend BOBBIE LYNN. This was a total surprise and it arrived just in time of a little pick me up. I'm a big fan of her crafty work. If you don't know her, I encourage you to visit and follow her beautiful blog and if you're into gardening you're in for a treat.

All of the gorgeous laces are from Lele's store, I did use a few of my flowers.I think I will never get tired of the color pink.  For more details check the YT
