Paper Flower Prayer Garland

Today was overcast and perfect for working indoors on paper crafting.

I recently purchased a Silhouette Cameo. Oh, the fun things you can do with this machine!

St. Louis Spring Garden Walk

I'll start this walk with a glimpse of Washington University's Hilltop campus. This picture is facing Graham Chapel and the gargoyle is one of many on its facade.

The campus itself is beautifully landscaped, but today I want to explore some of the neighboring streets. The homes that grace the periphery of Wash U's campus and Forest Park are filled with mature landscaped gardens and an eclectic mix of architecture.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint: Old White Magic

Yesterday I was busy emptying out one of the bedrooms for what we have dubbed the Pullman Bedroom, the room will be outfitted with two iron beds (Craigslist finds), paired with two Pullman Resort posters (Cafe Press)and the waterfall rail travel themed dresser I completed a few weeks back.I can't wait to see all of the elements together and have that big reveal!

Spring Fresh Wreath

It's spring!The daffodils have come and gone, my tulips are in bloom, and the redbud is budding. I love Spring and its time of reawakening and renewal, don't you?

A Visit to Warm Spring Ranch home of the Anheuser-Busch Clydesdales

Not long ago we purchased a sweet blue mustang with a white convertible top.  Hubby and I selected Booneville, MO for our inaugural convertible day trip, home of AB's Clydesdale's.
