Weekend Inspiration: Natural Plant & Flower Dye
TGIF everyone! Here in the U.S. we have a 3-day weekend! I can’t wait to have that extra day so I can get caught up. What are you planning for the weekend? I’m thinking about trying some natural plant dye. I’ll probably start with beets. I just love the deep rich color a beets and can’t wait to try my hand at dying some fabric or paper. I’ve been checking out some ideas and gathered up some of my favorites to share with you. Enjoy these fantastic projects while I get ready to boil some beets.

BLOOM: Free Printable Floral Borders

Floral Frame 1I took these photos a few years ago and ’ve been searching for them for the longest time. My photo files on my external hard drive are sort of like that messy desk drawer file drawer – there’s a system but a few things end up misfiled. But I found them and they’re perfect for spring, Mother’s Day, graduations or anything.

Sew & Tell: freshening the patio for spring

It’s definitely spring in my neck of the woods. The weather went from gloomy to fresh and sunny recently. Although I was ready for the change in seasons, my patio wasn’t. The cushions and pillows on my patio furniture have had it. They were old, faded and dingy. I would show you a picture but honestly, they were so bad it’s horrifying.

Celebrations: spring flower inspiration

Today, I’m tag teaming with the lovely Kari at Ucreate to bring you some spring inspiration. Kari has some pretty floral Mother's Day ideas. And I’m showing you some different ways to display flowers.

Spring Flowers 14 aTo me, nothing says spring like fresh cut flowers. Even the tiniest vase with a single flower is an instant mood brightener. For this project, I bought inexpensive flowers to create several arrangements and had enough left over to use the odds and ends to create the floral frame above. Inside the frame I added an inspirational quote that Kari shared with me. I'm going to print it out and hang it above my craft table.
