These beautiful bunch of dried flower's are from my Grandpa's casket. Family was told to take some flowers as to remember grandpa. I took some I could dry on purpose to keep as long as I could.
My Grandpa Ed was a very special grandpa. Lot's of childhood memories. It was sad to loose him this year. But he was so frail and he's in a better place. He really loved his Jesus. He loved purple, deep purple especially. That's another reason I love these flowers.
Will miss you Gramp's! We love you dearly!

So, I've had these awful gross pillows that need replacing and I thought, well I cant afford to just go buy a bunch of new pillows but perhaps find a way to make pillow covers, and saw a example online for a idea on envelope pillow covers. I didn't use a pattern, I just kinda studied it a little and its probably not perfect but was able to make a few so far. By taking old covers off, and putting new ones on. Here is the sample of that. Then a photograph of my garden in the garden box! I will share more photo's later... Have a good day!

When life gives ya lemons make lemonade!! A good statement and I guess you could take the meaning in many ways, but usually it's about making the best out of a hard situation, bad day, etc! I'm definitely far from perfect when it comes to being positive about a hard situation, but I'm working at it... A thought of the day. I also heard from someone, to end this on a silly note. Another way to phrase it is. "When life gives you lemons, throw them back and demand chocolate." ha ha!
