Lemon Button...

Today I went to Lowes. We're adding on to our raised bed garden and needed more wood to build a new home for our corn. While wandering around, I found this:

A GORGEOUS happy fern named 'Lemon Button'! She is an Exotic Angel Plant (I LOVE Exotic Angel plants!!!) that loves indirect light and medium water. I have the perfect white ceramic pot picked out and she'll live on the side of my tub surrounded by river rock. :)

I also ran across this beautiful new book! 'Handmade Home-Simple Ways to Repurpose Old Materials into New Family Treasures'. By Amanda Blake Soule. I instantly fell in love with her projects, her family and her. I can't wait to make the sweet banner pictured on the cover! Along with each project, you'll find a story that accompanies. Often they are very personal and touching.


I felt like I wanted to be Amanda's new best friend and was delighted to find that she has a blog! You can find her-along with her photos, links to buy this book and 'The Creative Family', her first book and other interesting finds at: http://soulemama.typepad.com/soulemama/. PLEASE go check her out! I hope you love what you see and read as much as I do!
Much Love,
j

Oooh...I just got some JoAnn's coupons! I'll have to go play! I've always had that sewing itch, but haven't really known how to handle it. I'm so happy that I finally broke down and got my own machine-I've all but completed two quilt tops! :)
