~Vintage Roses and Simple & Sweet Fridays #151~

I received a beautiful Vintage sign for
 Christmas from Carly's boyfriend, Justin.
I thought I'd create a vignette
 using some of our roses from our garden.
I used my mother's antique silver pieces.
Added some pearls.
I had a beaded runner to add some shimmer.
Everything looked like it was meant to be in a vignette.
The two bigger pieces of silver are
 a pitcher and a ice bucket.
The creamer and sugar piece were perfect with some jewelry.
I love how the roses compliment the silver.
So pretty!
I took out my sketchbook and watercolored the photo.
Not bad for a beginner.
I took some photos of the last of our blooms in the garden
 before I cut them back.
I'm always amazed how beautiful roses are.
Love to admire them in any vignette!

How was your week? 
Let's see all the beautiful things you've been working on.

~Drying Flowers For Spring~


Drying flowers for Spring is one of my favorite things to do.
Since I had to cut back my roses for Spring,
I decided to pick the roses and flowers that were blooming.
I always love using them for different projects for the Spring.
I found the perfect drying rack at the thrift store.

So easy to tie them up with some jute.
I wonder what ideas I'll find on Pinterest.
Looking forward to more flowers in the garden in Spring.

~Celebrating New Year's Downtown San Diego and Simple & Sweet Fridays #150~


We celebrated New Year's in
downtown San Diego at a high-raise hotel.
It was so much fun seeing the view that night.
It was spectacular! 
The lights shining off the hotels made it seem as though we were in Wonderland.
We could see the the beautiful bay and the Coronado Bay Bridge.
The next morning it was just as beautiful.
San Diego is such a wonderful place to live.
The convention center was just across the street and 
you could see the tennis courts near the top of the building.

As I was looking out the window,
 the trolley was just crossing the water structure in the newly designed water pool.
The views out of our room were just breathtaking!




We had a great view of Coronado.
In the distant you could see the top of the famous 
Hotel Del Coronado.
All of our family were there to celebrate.
Our daughter Katie and her boyfriend, Harry from England.
Carly, Stan and Katie.
Carly's boyfriend, Justin took all the family photos.
 Thank you, Justin!!
Me, Katie, Carly and our son, Scott.
It was a memorable night.
San Diego is a wonderful place to celebrate the New Year 2015!!
