Tea Cup Garden Accents

Miniature Mother’s Day Rose Garden

Ok, so it’s not a whole rose garden but it’s a rose in a garden setting. ;) I was remembering the other day how my mother and her siblings used to give my grandmother flowers or plants on Mother’s Day and how much she liked them. My sister and I often gave our mother flowers […]

Strawberries and Tea Cup Wreath for Mother’s Day

  I LOVE this wreath! It’s something just a little bit different and it’s definately not the kind of wreath you’d put between the front door and the screen. But I love it all the same. It has several of my favorite things in it… and coincidentally, several of my mother’s favorite things as well! The […]
