A Happy Weekend To You!
I can't believe another week has flown by - so here we are again - ready to enjoy another beautiful weekend. We will be sitting up shop at our local Art in the Alley Festival. Should be loads of fun - always is - live music, food, happy people, talented artisans - all roaming up and down this quaint lil' alley in our small town. KUDOS to our local Arts Council for doing such a fantastic job!!
Here are a couple of pictures I thought I'd share with you - in case you are in the mood for a lil' plantin'. You know how I love to plant in anything other than a traditional flower pot - well, here are some sweet children's boots and a tricycle with a pretty red basket attached to it all filled with bright, happy flowers! Now in case you have something like your child's old tricycle or bike and you can't seem to part with - this would be a great way to bring it out of storage and enjoy it. Simply find a basket, either wicker or wire, attach with zip ties, and plant to your heart's content. Now these lil' boots came from a sale, 'cause I couldn't bear to plant in my son's first pair of lil' "frog" rubber boots. But I have to say, these yellow waders are tooooooo cute filled with marigolds and tied together with grosgrain ribbon for stability.
So have a fun, happy, and safe weekend!
