The Cutest Watering Can Ever

Hi Everyone, Life has been keeping me really busy lately. My baby will be going to high school next year  (which makes me proud and sad at the same time) so we've been trying to make sure his schedule is all set. There are so many options that I think my head has spun  around a few times!  : ) Spring sports and activities have started up also so there has been a lot going on at our house.
I have to show you something I found this week. I went to Target to return a few things and at the last minute I decided to check out their garden department. When I saw this watering can, I knew it had to come home with me. Isn't it just the cutest???

I've never seen a gingham check watering can before, have you?

It just totally says spring and summer to me.

Here it is 'modeling for you' on my pink cake stand. (It's such a show off!)

I hope you all have the most wonderful Sunday. I truly appreciate all of your visits and sweet comments!

Growing Flowers & Veggies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. I truly love beautiful flowers. Every spring I plant some annuals and I know that plant food can make a big difference in how well they grow.  Purchasing annuals can be a bit expensive so I want mine to look the best they can be. ~ look how vibrant the colors are of these pretty flowers ~ That's how I want my flowers to look!! Have you heard of Whitney Farms organic plant food and soils?organic plant foodorganic soil I love that their plant foods and soils are 100% natural ~ no additives or artificial ingredients.  I really like the idea that I won't be adding any synthetic chemicals to our garden. And this year I really want to try growing my own tomatoes. Homegrown tomatoes are just so yummy! With the Whitney Farms Tomato and Vegetable Food I don't have to worry about my family consuming harmful chemicals. Whitney Farms Tomato and Vegetable Food would be a great…

Beatrix Potter wrote and illustrated The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
The book was first published in 1902.
It has certainly stood the test of time,
being a favorite of young children for decades.

Did you know that you can tour
 Beatrix Potter's home, Hill Top, near Cumbria, England?
Beatrix left Hill Top to the National Trust
and it has been kept just as it was then.

I wish you all the most happy and blessed Easter!

Sunday Post ~ Dreamy Ranunculus

Do you love the Ranunculus?


I only discovered this flower within the last couple years. I guess they don't grow in this part of the country.


I saw these artificial ranunculus recently at Meijers.
They looked so real and so pretty that I had to have some.
They also had some orchid stems that complemented them well.


I arranged them in a creamy white pitcher
 and put them on my table. I've been enjoying them so much. They are now one of my favorite flowers.

They will definitely do until the Peonies bloom!
Don't beautiful flowers just brighten your day?
