Vine Wraps




Back in May I posted here about the garden wreaths I made.  In early August, after we had done a LOT of trimming and chopping and cutting in the periphery of our back yard I spent a couple of hours making more wreaths.  Which are still hanging yet today as you see them here.  :)


Then I thought maybe jar wraps would be fun to make.


And, they were!


So now I can adorn the jars that I keep seeds, pods, and "what not" in.


Very simple, but really adds a little something!


Making them is just rather relaxing, especially the day I formed these, it was so nice outside.  

Now, maybe I should form some vines into Christmas trees.   Little table top ones perhaps.

Looking Ahead


Two weeks ago, my daughter and I went out to take the first round of her senior pictures.

Oh look, an abandoned church.

Let's take pictures there.

Yes, let's.

:::::

We took the second round this past Saturday in between the ACT test, Husker football, and celebrating two of my kids' birthdays.  It was a full day!  I'll post more pictures soon I hope.




Scene and Story: Aunt BonBon Dresses Up


Here it is September and I see it's time for another Scene and Story hosted by Sarah and Leon.

This was just a quick photo taken after we had celebrated our second granddaughter turning 2.  She received some dress up shoes as a gift so of course the dressing up followed.  Aunt BonBon, as the grands call my daughter Bonnie, was joining in.  The photo is busy, poor lighting, etc. but that is part of the story.  Their house was busy and everyone was enjoying themselves. If you look in the back you can get a glimpse of the other Grandma giving our youngest granddaughter a bottle. My son in law was showing her the photo book they had just made from their trip to Germany.

Pictures of the "things" and the "goings on" are as important as the group shots and individual poses I think and we often overlook taking those.

Because dress up is so fun: here and here are a couple of older posts on the same subject. My heart got all fuzzy revisiting them. :)

~have a great week~

Sunflowers That Are Sunny


Oh my.  I am so enjoying the sunflowers this year!  I think I have five different varieties and hopefully will photograph each separately to document and remember them.  I have a dream of a garden journal~even if just utilitarian and not all pretty like I envision. Just so you know, they don't look all that pretty in the garden.  It's full of weeds, but they bloom in spite of that.  Probably why I love them so much.  I posted this same bouquet as a black and white image on Instagram.  Either way, the fowers are really something to enjoy.

By the way, the title of the post?  I really miss reading kids' books to my girls!  The voice of many of those wonderful books is still with me and I enjoy it.

~happy friday~
