FNF, FF and What I Won..

Here's hoping everyone has had a good week.  It seems there are several of us bloggers walking through some issues right now. I know of two other people who have had surgery on their hip besides me just recently.  Positive thoughts and air hugs are coming your way!

I am linking up with French County Cottage , where you show ways you are feathering up your living space, inside or out.  And hopefully Tootsie will accept these flowers for Flaunting since I am pretty much house bound right now.
Plenty of inspiration between these two parties to keep your mind busy.

Here's what all those dyed coffee filters were for Grace.
I have been making flowers to adorn some wreaths and other items for the upcoming French Country Market.

That's a 'piece' of a Hydrangea bloom from 2011 in the background.

How do you think they turned out?

If you have never visited Marydon, you should.  She is sincerely one of the kindest woman I have never met. (for some reason blogger isn't letting her page come up, keep trying)

Marydon hosts all types of give-a-ways on her blog.  
I was blessed to win, what I thought was a decorated bottle last week.  When the package arrived the joy overflowed and came out of my eyes.
It contained the bottle, a painted spoon, a lavender sachet, two "Frenchy" Magazines and a heartwarming note.
One side of the bottle.

Aren't the painted roses just beautiful?
Other side of the bottle,  decoupaged photo.
Thank you for your generosity Celestina.  Celestina's blog and her Etsy Store

Be Blessed!

I hope you are feeling better with each passing day Darla. Healing takes time and sometimes all we need is patience. That can be hard to have at times I know.

Your coffee filter roses are wonderful. I really like the yellow ones. You did a great job. I've never heard of those before.

Congrats on your lovely win.

Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady

Your roses are gorgeous, Darla! They look real! Love your giveaway win too. Congratulations. Feel better soon. In a few weeks/months you will feel a lot better and be glad you went through the surgery...and the recovery time and trials will become a distant memory.

Hi Darla, Wanted to get back to you as you asked how our variegated liriope does. I just planted it this summer, so I can't say. Looks healthy so far and it's quite pretty. Take care of yourself. Hope you feel well soon.
