This picture is from 3 years ago. Nothing this pretty is in my flowerbeds yet. I have lots of weeds though and trash from the wind storm. I thought I would start off this post by showing you something pretty. This week we have had wind from the west. When it does we get this;
I think we will get this at least 3 more times before summer. I just dread it. Each of those things drop millions of seeds. It is constant clean up.
So after the wind stopped. I cleaned up for 3 hours to get this.
All clean and ready for the next wind storm. We have had the nicest weather...For May. We hit 77 yesterday. I bet the trees suddenly burst into bloom this weekend.
I also worked on these Valentine boxes this week. I am not finished yet but I will show you what I have done so far.
I have been making these little boxes for sewing kits. It has been so much fun. I saw the pattern from CountryStitches used pages copied out of a music book that I sprayed with coffee and baked so they would look old. Just so you know, the music is for Hotel California. My son's current music he is learning for a recital in the spring. It makes me chuckle when I think of it.
I am making three right now. I am working on the things that go inside. I will show you picture of those when I am finished. I lined them with pages of the music too.
So that has been this week's project. I do enjoy Valentines Day. I bought these and I had to find people to eat the candy. I need to get some more boxes and find some more people to eat the goodies. These are spoken for and I would like to make one for myself. :)
I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
