Roses for Springtime

I found this picture in the February issue of Martha Stewart Living. How gorgeous is this rose?! So pretty- it almost doesn't even seem like it could be real.

Such a Pretty Rose!

Last year was the first time in our new house and my first foray into the world of gardening, so I pretty much kept things as-is from the previous owners and tried to get my bearings. Maybe planting some of these gorgeous flowers needs to be on my list for this year?!

Garland Love

I came across this garland on the Purl Bee and fell in love... so pretty! So festive! So perfect for any occassion!

We're in the process of planning a baby shower for one of my oldest friends and I know that these will make their way into the decor... We're looking for pretty and playful (she's having a girl), but not too pink or over-the-top baby and girlie. The garland would fit in perfectly with this modern baby shower from Blueprint, one of my favorite inspirations for the event.

Happy 2010!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and New Year's celebration - I can't believe how quickly 2009 flew by, but am very excited for a fresh, new year to get started!

I actually made many of the crafts I planned to give as gifts, so a report on how that went is up next... but just wanted to first share the munchkins' New Year's spirit:
