Spring Cleaning

Spring is just around the corner. For many people it means its time to do some spring cleaning. Get into your closets and start pulling out stuff you haven't touched since you've moved in! Its also the perfect time to get your windows, pantries and basement cleaned. Sounds like fun doesn't it?

When I think of spring, I think of bright and pastel colors. This past weekend I made a bunch of washcloths in some amazing colors that get me excited for spring. These washcloths can also be used as dishcloths so you can be eco friendly while you do your spring cleaning!


Feel free to check out my Etsy shop if you are interested in looking at my other washcloth.

My Garden Pt 1

When I was little I remember having to help my mom with her garden every spring. I told myself that when I got older I wouldn't have a garden.

Well here I am all grown up now, with a lovely home and a HUGE garden. When we first moved it I was up to the challenge. But it quickly got overwhelming. Last fall I decided to start from scratch and spent several weekend cleaning out the garden.

Now that I had a clean canvas it was time to decide what to plant. I wanted flowers that would bloom at different points of the season. Some in the spring, some in the summer. I want to keep my garden colorful. After a trip to Lowes I picked up a ton of bulbs. My friend also sent over bulbs from her lillies. While shopping at Walmart I found some bulbs which were part of the "Plant for Hope" series named in honor of Susan G Komen for the cure.

I just had to have them! With my mom being a breast cancer survivor, what a better way to show my support than to have a garden full of shades of pink. So now that I have my bulbs planted its time to wait and see what happens. I will keep you posted :-)
