Vintage Flower Frog

Good morning! Have you ever heard of a flower frog? It's a flower arranging tool that you place in the bottom of a vase or bowl and then stick flower stems inside the pin heads. I'm not sure why it's called a flower frog though!

My sister-in-law and I went antique shopping yesterday and I had to bring this tiny one (only 1 1/2") home with me.

I'm using it as a pretty display in my work area.

Happy 14th Birthday Grace!

Today is Grace's 14th birthday! She had her weekly Writing and Science classes and then I took her out for a special lunch and to get her make-up done at Macys. Since she is allowed to wear it now, we then went to Target to stock up on some less expensive items.

She opened a few gifts later this afternoon and now is hanging out with a friend and looking forward to a rare mid-week sleepover.

She's not a huge fan of cupcakes, so we got her some chocolate covered strawberries instead. Tonight we'll eat dinner at Macaroni Grill, which has been a family tradition for many years.

It's been a wonderful day so far and I'm looking forward to her 14th year. So far, this teenager thing isn't as scary as I thought it would be!
