Kindergarten Artwork

As I may have mentioned before I love kids artwork! For today's post, my blog will be more of a mom blog than flower blog. My daughter can't make it through the day without making something! She absolutely loves art. And here are some of her works from her kindergarten year. It does help she had a great art teacher! Thanks Miss Lisa.

Georgia O'Keefe

Here they carved a design into a foam meat tray and pressed it onto the paper.

And my favorite looks beautiful framed in my kitchen!

Children love to see their work on display, it makes them feel proud. Ikea frames are perfect for kids art. I have also noticed my children like to hang their own art creations. Our sliding patio doors seem to be the place they choose!

Ring Bearer Ideas

There are so many great ideas out there for the ring bearer. Here are a few of my favorites...

Tara McHugh Flora - driftwood, mum and ribbon

I really love the sign idea! Super cute and easy to customize to the style of your wedding.

Succulent Centerpieces

This past week I had lots of fun creating a grouping of three succulent pots to display in a modern waterfront home that it currently for sale here in Victoria. Some of the plants used were, echeveria "lola" and another succulent called Senicio "blue chalk fingers". Something like this is great for a home on the market as it is very low maintenance but still helps add some life to the space.

Something like this is also great for anyone who finds regular house plants too much work. These only need to be watered about every 3 weeks. You can always tell if your succulent needs water if the leaves start to shrivel!
