Flowers, and More Flowers!
Hello! Sorry it's been a while. I've been busy wedding planning with Caitlin and sewing in between those times. The yard as you can see is bursting with life. It's neat to watch it change by the day as there continues to be so much sun out this way. The lemon tree outside the family room is a busy hub for numerous bees and humming birds, which is always a treat to watch and to hear all the buzzing. A couple of weekends ago we secured the florist for Caitlin and Cyrous' wedding. We are super excited about it, because when we sat down with him, he totally got Caitlin's wedding ideas. Check out their website. I have been the lucky recipient of some of their arrangements, and we always had them in mind for Caitlin's wedding. Nicole send me a Mother's Day bouquet from them the first year she was away and it made me cry, not only because of the sentiment, but because of how beautiful it was. The owners are a mother and son. The son has a wonderful eye and is a fellow artist, and you can tell by his uniqueness in composing arrangements. We have some fun ideas with beautiful colors and we can't wait to see them executed by him. All that is left now is cake tasting and invitations this coming Sunday. The grooms attire has to be done too. We secured the DJ and I think Caitlin and Cyrous really like him.
Needless to say, since I'm a flower nut, my whole house has vases of flowers throughout, and the ones pictured have now been replaced with daffodils and roses! How fun is this time of year with all the available blooms?! What are your favorite flowers this time of year? The cute painted eggs in the first photo were a sweet gift from Cyrous' mom.
I just added this little boy outfit just in time for Easter. I haven't made a little boy outfit in a while, and while I had a devil of a time with those darn fitted sleeves, it was fun to take a departure from all things girl for a while. I just bought some really beautiful fabric recently. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw them. I bought three different prints of Liberty and various other fabrics that have inspired me for this up coming season.
Well, I'm going to go out in the yard and check to see if any roses have bloomed yet. Catch up with you later!!!
