Weekly Wow's

Happy Saturday friends!
Well, I have graduates.....of preschool anyways. This week marked the milestone of preschool graduation for my twins. I was truly a proud mommy, as I sat in the cap and gown ceremony and listened to them recite the pledge, count by 10's and list the alphabet with corresponding words. Yes, tears.
She's all girl and he's .... well, all boy!

Here's some wonderful inspiration for you to awe over.

Eat now, play later, that's what I say! 
If you play the violin,  you will want to eat this one instead.   Jessi Cakes Blog
Beautiful dresser makeover from Centsational Girl that started as a plain pine IKEA piece with blue burlap added. Have you ever used  fabric on your furniture pieces...this makes me want!!  

Have you ever considered hanging a mirror outside in your garden. You could easily hang one on the fence or on your house. Love how the image of the garden reflects in the mirror.

This next table setting from Celebrating Everyday Life gets me in the summer mood with memorial day right around the corner. Nothing beats good ole red, white and blue!

What are you doing this weekend?
Grateful for~

A wonderful preschool year for my twins. Look out kindergarten, here they come!

  1. Our grandson graduated Pre-K Thursday night. He is the youngest of our four g'kids. We were at an art show at a local college, just before the graduation, where our 7 year old's painting was exhibited. I cannot believe how they have grown. I posted about it, in a rare post about our kiddos.
    Your children are so cute, Laura. Time definitely flies.

    I have had mirrors outdoors. One on the back porch, in recent years and then there was the one at the farm. Cardinal males absolutely love to preen or fight with their image, I don't know which. They will peck at a mirror endlessly. This includes car mirrors. To keep them from bothering the car mirrors, we hung a mirror in the front garden. There was a place for them to sit and look at themselves to their hearts content.

  2. I'm nuts over that mirror outdoors! Great idea! The kids are precious, Laura -- what a milestone!
