ast week, I showed you the adorable baby deer who took up residence in my front yard... this week I'm turning my attention to baby birds.
What can I say? We have a lot of baby wildlife around our house.
I was inspired to write a post about birdwatching after coming across this old photo of a baby bird caught hiding in my rose bushes last year.
ow can you not go oooh and ahhhh over a sight like this. I recently woke up to this adorable sight on my front lawn. So cute, right?
As adorable as these fawns are, I must say they equally destructive (along with their parents) when it comes to chomping on practically anything within their reach, especially my roses.
here are just some magazine cover photos that take my breath away and make me want to dive right into the issue right away. That's how I felt when I first saw the latest digital issue of Celebrating Everyday Life with Jennifer Carroll.
The soft blue and white flowers pouring out of the pretty etched vase are such a lovely focal point with every other element perfectly arranged.

egular readers of this blog know that I'm always working on ways to improve and enhance my photos for this site whether it's with the use of props or just plain lighting techniques.

Every year I grow a small herb garden on my back deck and it's so much fun to tend to a fast-growing assortment of herb plants.
This year, I'm also sowing many of my own seeds and throughout this post, I'll show you just how easy this part of the gardening process can be.
low out the candles. We're celebrating a birthday around here. This month marks the one-year anniversary of one of the prettiest digital publications out there.

've always admired those old-fashioned looking intricately embroidered pillows that resemble tapestry. Now, I'm proud to say, I've made one myself.
This pillow which features Jacobean embroidery, only measures 10-square inches but it contains more machine embroidery than I've ever applied to a single project.
n my neck of the woods fresh layers of sleet and freezing rain greeted me this morning. Enough already, right?
I think it's safe to say, we're all probably ready for Spring.
While we keep our fingers crossed warmer temps to arrive sooner rather than later, perhaps my pretty Spring-Inspired, Cookie Mix Gift Sacks will warm you up a bit.

hen setting the dinner table, most people place the flatware off to the side of the plate, right? Or perhaps the spoon, knife and fork are artfully arranged right on top of the napkins.
Well, how about placing the flatware IN the napkins.
