Projet Nid de Poule (The Pothole Project)

Am I the only person who is just hearing about this amazing project taking place in the streets of Paris? Crocheted, bright, multicolored chains of yarn filling the cracks and potholes throughout Paris until the city decides that the sidwalks are worth taking care of....
The creator of these gorgeous creations (otherwise known as Yarn Bombing) is a french artist named Juliana Santacruz Herrera who is transforming eyesores into whimsical designs!

I had never heard of Yarn Bombing before....apparently there are MANY different ways to make our world more colorful through this type of creative "graffiti".....

Google Yarn Bombing and see all of the amazing images that surface!

I am loving this....makes me want to start a Pothold Project in my own neighborhood.

Go make the world a little more colorful my friends!

Hello Friends!

Market Days was a success!

I had so much fun feeling like a store owner in the most charming store in town.....I was surrounded by the most eccentric people....and I sold out of almost everything!

The only regret that I have is that I did not take one picture!!!

I can't BELIEVE I didn't take any pictures!!

I soo want to share with you the little store that welcomed me with open arms!

The good news is they asked me to come back during their next big event...

The American Picker 2 weeks!!!

For those of you who are familiar with the American Pickers....they live right in the town where I sold my gardens today and are starting a very big event this June in the town of LeClaire, Iowa.

So fun....

and guess who gets to be right in the middle of the divine action!!

And YES I said TWO WEEKS!!

I was just saying I was going to take the next week to really focus and finish things up at work and to baby my gardens and plant seeds and work on my bottle trees and order butterflies and ladybugs and get Luna's garden in tip top shape... you like the clothes line? That was my step daughter's idea......

Here is a better look at the clothes hanging out in the sun.
I love the smell of sunshine....
Is there anything better than crawling into bed with sheets just taken off the clothesline?

OH my loves....ha....these pictures are so are my business cards!

My friends made them for me last week.....

They are so simple, so cute!

I love them.....and am so lucky that I have friends who would do anything for me AND have computer skills.....

Have I told you all how much I appreciate all of your kind words



love love love?

You all had more faith in me than I ever did....

Never thought I would sell anything...and today I did! Can't believe it!

Look, here are the little price tags I made.....inside each bag included a business card and how to care for their new fairy garden

I really hope everyone who bought a garden from me is loving them!

I am so honored and humbled by the people who purchased my gardens....

I hope it brings them magic....

I am sending all of YOU magic too!!!

Thank you for being my biggest fans!!

Derby Hat

Check out the hat....or "fascinator" I made for Derby Day!

I had to cut into my Halloween costume from last year :(...but it was worth it....

it brought me luck, too, since my horse WON (Animal Kingdom) and I left with 20 bucks!!!
I love parties where hats are NOT optional!


Here is a closer look...

Wish I could photo shop those forehead wrinkles!! ugh...

I will be posting all of my fairy houses to be sold at Market Days tomorrow. I took pictures today!! I hope you all had a terrific mothers day weekend!!

Little Hands make the BEST Fairy Gardens

I have to share the fairy gardens that were made by my little friends Adam and Kayla!

Adam, Kayla and their mom were our house guests last week and we had SUCH a fun time!

Wish they could have stayed longer...we miss them so much!

It is very difficult to turn off creativity in two kids were are bursting with it! it was only right that they were encouraged to dig into the plethora of fairy garden supplies I have on hand!
As you can see, they are naturals!

Max also released his creative mojo...although his "fairy gardens" always turn into some kind of army camp.

A trip to the garden store, a table full of fairy supplies, and a little imagination....

My new friend, Laura, posted an interview of me on her enchanting blog Gypsea Tree!
After the initial SHOCK of someone wanting to do an interview with ME...I was completely honored! How fun!

I loved answering her questions...they made me smile!

Once you visit her blog you will see how we stumbled upon each other:)
Not only do I get lost in the charming pictures of Laura's gypsy caravans, I love her sweet and sensitive energy!
