ceramic vase $2

My collection of flower vases was lacking variety, and by that I mean that they are all those cheap glass bubble kind, so when I spotted this minty colored beauty there was no hesitation.

I love the crackled look that you can only see if you get up close and personal. After I finished my thriftcapades, I headed next door to the market for some fresh cut blooms..

Flowers & Fresh Scents

It may only be February, but spring has sprung at our little tree house on the mountain. So we have been doing a bit of gardening which is why it’s been a week since my last post.

gardeners don’t mind a little dirt in their coffee

    I have to admit, I’m having a little spring fling! I know my husband thinks it’s a bad idea to plant this early but I just can’t help myself now that all of our plants are budding, and our trees are blossoming. I love that God decided we didn’t need a winter this year :) Yesterday we put our first fruit tree into the ground.

Nothing gets me in the mood for spring quite like a few pretty flowers and bright flowery fragrances, and let me be the first to tell you that you can find beautiful fresh scents on a budget! These are my two favorite spring scents so far. On the left, Calgon’s Parisian Charm. This one is a little on the sweeter side but it’s definitely won me over and I’ve gotten several compliments when wearing it. The smaller bottle on the right is Bath & Body Works Country Chic. I like this one because it is has a bright floral scent with a hint of vanilla.  And something about it makes me want to wear a dress with cowboy boots.

I guess it’s time to start brainstorming for the spring craft-a-ganza!
