I just loved how these wreaths look. I was originally going to add a bow but really liked the simplicity of this loos without out one. Very country but very pretty. And not to girly per my sister’s request. Next I will be working on decorating some vases with more burlap ribbon and twine. All of the decorations for the shower are really coming together. I can’t wait. Have you ever made a burlap wreath? How did it turn out? What did you use to accent it?

My sister is getting married this August and I am the matron of honor! Aside from the fact that I feel like I age another year every time I hear the word matron, I am so happy and excited for her! I do face a challenge though because my sister is a bit of a tomboy and definitely not into fancy anything. My idea of a perfect bridal shower is beautiful luncheon with dainty sandwiches, champage, and fancy desserts. That would make her revolt. So I asked her what kind of celebration she would like and I suggested we do a country theme with sunflowers, burlap, and blue gingham decorations, simple food, and relaxing in mom’s backyard. I really want to make this event special for her so I am working on some really awesome decorations. First up, I made a burlap banner with the names of the bride and groom.
I think it turned out very nicely. I am also surprised by how easy it was to actually make. When I decided to do it I thought it would be a lot harder. I think you could probably make this burlap banner in under an hour start to finish. You could make these for any celebration.

My nephew will be making his grand entrance into the world any day now and I realized as I am getting the messages that it may happen sooner than we think that I had not yet gotten a gift to welcome him to the family. Yikes! Oh well no worries because I have a cute and simple idea to put together a sweet little gift perfect for the baby boy who is about to add more joy to our world.
We wait and wait and wait for what seems like forever for summer to arrive. We can’t wait for the freedom, the anticipation of lazy mornings and fun filled afternoons. How quickly that all changes after the heat really kicks in and we are 4-5 weeks into our summer routine. Just about the time that the heat really kicks in the boredom also starts to creep its way in. You know what I am talking about. It is starting to get too hot to play outside for any length of time which means the kids are playing inside more and more which means you are starting to hear the chorus of “I’m bored”. Even a day at the pool starts to lose it’s appeal after a few weeks of frequent visits. This summer I have a plan to keep the kids entertained when the summer boredom blues grab a hold of us. I have been dreaming of creating a Lego table for my kids using their existing train table. I decided to wait until mid summer to surprise them with this new fun place to play.
