A simple but beautiful spring wreath!

I wanted to share a simple spring wreath I made for my mom this past weekend!
The garlands were on sale for half price at Hobby Lobby last week
so we purchased one artificial greenery garland for 8.00 (originally 15.99)
and one grapevine wreath that was 4.99.

I already had the artificial nest, the speckled eggs and moss.
Plus the little buds that surround the nest.

I used floral wire to attach the garland to the wreath as well as the nest.
The eggs, moss and buds were glued on using Fabri-Tac glue.

So...a very simple wreath that was only 13.00!!!
Plus my mom LOVES it!
Now I need to make mine ~
Of course I had to buy the stuff to make me one too!!

Hugs and love,

Welcome Spring!!!! And what's going on in my neck of the woods!

The older I get the more quickly time flies!
I'd always been told that but now I see how true it is.

Spring begins next week!!! EEEK! I simply can't believe it.

I so hope that life has been treating you well.
Things have been clipping along here in our old farmhouse
so I thought I'd share what's been happening around here.
The photo below is from a few years ago,
a sweet cardinal's nest in one of our shrubs.
The color of the eggs are beautiful!

And since my last post...
look at how big our precious grandson Owen is!!!
He's about to be three months old and
is such a happy baby...
he knows how much he is loved!

In other news ~
I'm not sure if you're on Facebook but I had the bright idea
to start a "Dawn's Studio De-Stash" group!

I've been going through EVERYTHING!!!
I thought I'd try to sell a few items as
my hoard had grown to GIANT proportions.

why not sell to my friends?
If you'd like to pop over to Facebook and join,
I welcome you!
Simply request to join and I'll approve you.
I have no schedule but am constantly adding new things.

Here's a sampling of items that have already been sold:

Neat, huh?
I'm still adding items to my Etsy too.
I have even made a few new things!
A couple of altered bears wearing wonderful vintage
doll clothes...and lace lavender sachets!

And lastly I'm almost finished with the guest room!!
Yes, I have been adding and adding more things
to the point that I believe it's reached maximum capacity!

I found these wonderful cones at Hobby Lobby for half price.
Only 7.00 each!!!
I knew they'd be beautiful on either side of the framed lamb print
over the bed.

Then I found a furry pillow cover at Hobby Lobby for half off as well!
I love seems to remind me of lamb's wool.

I found a beautiful bookcase at Walmart for only 80.00!
Searching all over the house,
I gathered tons of old, raggedy books and placed them inside.
I'm so pleased with it!
Of course it's still a work in progress.
It's so much fun placing items inside.

I'll hang the thankful sign over the door going into the bathroom soon.

More botanicals!!!
Again, half off at Hob Lob.
I want to put them in the wicker cone below ~

My last project will be to finish framing FIFTEEN
of these beautiful herbarium pages!
I will hang them in three rows of five
opposite of the sheep and bed wall!
I can see it in my mind's eye already.
I'm puttying the corners of Dollar Tree frames
and spraying them with Kilz.
I found some wonderful text scrapbooking papers to place inside
as a backdrop. I'll be sure to share when finished!

Sorry for such a humongous post but it's been awhile!

I hope you are doing so good
and want to wish you a very Happy Spring
dear friends!!!

Hugs and love,

In just the blink of an eye, January is gone!

And what a wonderful month it has been!
Our precious grandson Owen is growing like a little weed
so you know I have to share his sweet self with you.

Heather and Owen came down a week or so ago and spent the entire day
with my husband and I (Papa and Mimi)
plus we invited Emily, Clara and Murray over as well
so they could finally meet baby Owen.

It was a wonderful day!!!
Owen is so laid back and chill...I love it!
Clara held him, Murray held him and of course Papa, Emily and I
held him as well. It was such a sweet day!

Our second born David, Owen's daddy!!! I can't believe that grey in your beard honey...
He's a wonderful daddy!

Owen's precious mama Heather...we love you so much sweetie!

David and Heather had a wonderful party last weekend so each side of the family
could meet little Owen....every one had a turn at holding him.
Here's our son Chase and Owen.
Makes my heart melt!

My precious mama holding Owen. She's his GREAT grandma! So thankful for this ~
My dad held him too but I missed the photo!!! Ugh.

My husband Dennis' daddy Milton holding Owen. He was named after daddy Milton!
Owen Milton Edmonson.
Great Grandaddy Milton had tears in his eyes!

Even Noah had a turn and fed Owen his bottle!

Dennis' mama, Great Grandma Jackie enjoyed him so much!

Our son Brad even got to hold the little angel!!!

Finally at the end of his big party he woke up!!!

Can you tell we are all in love with our newest angel?

In other news...guess what?
I've started a Studio De-Stash Group on Facebook where I'm selling TONS
of my collection and hoard!!!

Are we friends on Facebook????
Just ask to join my Dawn's Studio De-stash group!!!
Here are a few lots that I've sold lately!!!!

And lastly...our guest room (formerly Noah's bedroom :( .....) is coming along nicely!
I just need to give it a bit more attention but have been concentrating on cleaning up
and de-stashing of my studio. I figure I may as well have my own estate sale!!! HAHAHA!

And so it goes.
Another month has vanished.
But it's been a beautiful month here...
I pray your month was too!

hugs and love,
