I’m sharing my Tulsi Tea in my Old fashioned Winnie The Pooh Valentine’s mug with you and the folks over at the Altered Book Lover this T day.
This past Thursday I made a flower arrangement for my friends birthday that I’ll be sharing as well. A similar arrangement from a local florist would be somewhere between $25-$50. I went to Trader Joes and purchased a dozen roses , Eucalyptus branches for filler, and two boxes of Chocolates for under $14.
A great place to find vases is at yard sales and thrift stores. I buy them when I see them for a good price so that I always have a few around when needed. If you get lucky, sometimes they will have glass nuggets in them already, if not you can find them at the dollar store. The nuggets help keep the flowers in place and are prettier and less messy then tape. I added 5 small cuttings of Azalea greens from my yard along with the Eucalyptus to complete the base for the arrangement. Then added in 9 roses to the square vase to complete.
I would also like to share my Valentine pockets, one for my daughter and one for a swap. You can watch the tutorial HERE. I added Chai tea, an envelope full of tiny heart sequins, and a few other die cuts to complete for my swap partner. The other pocket on the left has a silly scratch off message and I’ll put a gift card in as well for my daughter. Fun, easy to make out of 6 x 6 paper, and perfect to give with a little something special tucked inside.
And wisdom, scripture, or thoughts to ponder:
Enjoy the week ahead!
