Thank you for all your kind comments about my mudroom countertop skirt. You are so good to me. You didn't even give me a hard time about it taking nearly 2 years to complete! I suppose you realize by now that I am a slow poke.
Did you happen to notice the hydrangeas in my mudroom?
There are few things that make me as happy as fresh flowers. And, I'm especially giddy about these hydrangeas because they came from my backyard.
I normally have a very difficult time keeping my outdoor flowers alive, let alone keeping them healthy enough to clip and bring inside. But, thanks to the unusually mild temps and rain we're experiencing in the midwest, my hydrangeas are looking fabulous.
I'm thinking about trying my hand at drying them. Any tips?
I bought these West Elm vases as an early Mother's Day present to myself. It was love at first sight, and they were on sale, so I thought I'd do my husband and kids a favor and take the gift-buying burden off of them. I'm thoughtful like that :)
Seriously, these waterscape vases are my absolute favorite. I was having heart palpitations when I was picking them out. If money were no object, I would have wiped West Elm clean of them. I'd put them on every available surface in my house. I'd jump on Oprah's couch for them. That is how deeply I adore them.
What about you? Have you grown anything in the backyard (that you can talk about) or made any recent purchases that make you go a little Tom Cruise crazy?
