Today is not only my first Flowers on Friday from the new Manor, it’s also my BIRTHDAY!
The BIG 27 oooooooooo . . . . . . . Although I don’t think I can put BIG in front of any number that starts with a 2, so I’ll just say I’m turning 27 today. Another First Today, we got the first snow of the season !! Also, the first time I have ever had snow on my birthday (it’s unseasonably early this year). And for anyone who was wondering, although we live in Canada it doesn’t mean we have snow all the time, we live on the west coast, it’s like cold California up here, hehe, well . . . . almost
With Christmas just around the corner I’ve been thinking about mantel ideas. Here is the start of our Christmas Mantel! Also a sneak peek of our living room progress!!!
Paperwhites are one of my favorite flowers mostly because they remind me of Spring, and around December I could use a reminder!! One thing I don’t love about them is their smell (I know that’s something they are commonly desired for) but I’m not a big fan. There are two other varieties are”Grand Soliel d’Or” with yellow petals and cup and the “Chinese Sacred Lily” (neither Chinese nor a lily) with white petals and yellow cup. Both, have a fruitier scent then the traditional paperwhites, however they do not produce as many blooms as the traditional paperwhites so they are much harder to find!
Hope everyone has a great weekend, I will be dining with friends and family tonight, then sewing my rear end off this weekend.
I am a terrible sewer so many melt-downs are expected!!
