~Scenes From Our Weekend~

Hello everyone! As you can see the Texas wildflowers are in full bloom right now!


Bluebonnets, Daisies, Indian Paintbrushes...


Our Saturday started with a trip to the Farmer's Market. Fresh red romaine and Buttercrunch lettuce ...


Also, some local honey...perfect for toast!


At a local resale store I found this cardboard cupboard for $1.00! The artwork is done by Marjolein Basten, one of my favorite artists.


I tucked it into a corner on the patio.


There are envelopes and shelves inside for seed packets and mini gardening tools.


Saturday afternoon I got out some fabric scraps for a little sewing.


I made these mini strawberry pincushions while watching the new Charlotte's Web movie.


I added mini beads and pearls to a few of them...


I hope you enjoyed these scenes from our weekend. Tuesday is "May Day" so I will be back soon with some fun ways to celebrate it. Have a great week!

Oh Kelli, those strawberry pincushions are absolutely adorable!! I've always loved Marjolein Basten's art and I recognized that little cupboard as one of hers right away:-) What a great find!! So enjoyed all your pictures! xox

First off Kelli, thanks for your love.

That little cupboard is adorable. And Marjorien Basten is one of my favorites too. What a bargain!

I love your little strawberry pincushions. Please tell me you had a pattern. I couldn't stand to think that you are THAT talented to just whip it up. They are indeed precious.

My favorite picture is your little girl (I assume but perhaps I am wrote?) crouching among the flowers. That is so sweet.

I am glad you had such a lovely weekend. I need to rent that Charlotte's Web movie. We are Dakota Fanning fans here, the Butler and me.

Happy Monday!

Oh, wildflowers ~ so pretty. In our old town, we always took long walks down our country road to pick wildflowers. I'm not sure where we'll go to see them this year!

Your $1.00 cabinet is just too adorable; you get the best bargains! And those strawberry pincushions are darling! Sounds like you had a great weekend! :o)

I love the first ones with all of the Texas flowers. Those photos are so pretty.
I love your cardboard storage cupboard find. What a great deal. What a great way to organize you gardening supplies.
I'm one to be very organized too.

Kelli - so much fun! thanks for sharing the link to the pattern from Martha - I am printing it off and going to search through my fat quarters tomorrow to make a pint or so for our local strawberry festival! The kids love to decorate the house in honor of our town's facination with strawberries, but finding cute decorations is often hard! We'll follow your lead and maek some of our own!
