Roses, Upcycling,and Bluebirds!!!


This is a very special garden to me! Sim made this in memory of my Mom. Her name was Rose Marie. Sim took a rusty foot board to a bed and made a raised garden bed for them and then bought the angel for me. I couldn't believe it when I saw the beautiful blooms!! This has been only planted for about two weeks!! These roses will get alot bigger and fill in more. For now my soul is filled with love!!


Here is my newest Bird Nest I am adding to my Etsy Shoppe! I hand stitched the whole thing! The bluebird sits a atop old grubby chenille I upcycled from an old bedspread!! I used moss and silk faux forget-me-nots with gold and white string of beads for the nest. Her breast is a rusty orange color and her body is blue felt with a little black button from my button jar for the eye!! This is my own design and I love the way it turned out!! Bluebirds were very special to me and my Mom!!

I have been so busy in the garden I haven't had alot of creating thyme!! Torn today as it is raining!! Should I clean the house or create!! LOL If I get busy with it I could do both!! Right? I am thanking God for the rain though!! HE is watering my gardens for me!!!

GOD has made me fruitful in this land of suffering!!
Genesis 41:52

Have a great weekend and God bless you!!!
XOXO Love, Fran.
