flowers, fairies, and plbt

So I embroidered the fairy on this skirt for K and she had to wear it today. Guess what, the skirt is too big and the tie is fake (no I didn't make the skirt, I bought it). No time to take it in so off she goes to school - hope it doesn't fall off.

The butterfly lace is to cover some weak places in the fabric. I love how the fairy turned out but the skirt - ugh!!

But K looks cute.

This morning it was overcast and we had early morning showers. I had been working on the photos from a shoot since 5:30 so some relaxation was in order so what else would I do but take pictures of my flowers.

The poppies have started blooming.


Doesn't the knot in the fence look like a wolf's eye gazing at you?

Some of the fancier iris and the Dutch iris are still blooming.

Columbine - first time I've had it in my yard.

The wild thing about columbine is that you can get two different colored flowers on the same plant!!

I love black and white!!

Pink yarrow - if you don't like invasive, don't plant it.

If you like impossible to kill, pink, and carefree - plant it.

I am so plbt - you would think I had a memory disorder rather than anger issues and depression struggles. I can't believe how often I forget my Zoloft. If you've had Zoloft you know the half-life is short so crashes are hard and fast.


I know I had something else to share but I guess I will do it later today when I post my last tin can project (I was going to be done with projects for the Iron Crafter but I decided I really wanted to do these).

sigh - off to get the girls from school...i hope they are happier than yesterday.

I am sharing this at:

Join us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up party!

make it wear it


  1. At least she can wear the skirt in the future...and the embroidery is lovely. My Sis would love it. She's really into the color fairy books.

  2. Wonderful flower photos.
    I do hope the skirt stayed put, too!

  3. The skirt looks lovely, love the fairy and the butterflies. Your flowers/photos are beautiful. I've been photographing flowers too. I have loads of what you call Columbine - we call them Grannies' bonnets! I love them, mine are mostly done flowering now tho, they flowered early this year. My heart goes out to you with the other stuff, I know those feelings. We have a saying here in england - chin up old chap!

  4. I hope her skirt stayed where it should :-) It looked really cute in the pictures.

    Your photography is amazing! Love the pictures you share. And, the flowers look incredible!

    Great job.
    Happy Weekend!

  5. I love the idea of embroidering such whimsy on children's clothes- hadn't ever thought of that. Thanks for sharing.

  6. The embroidery is beautiful, as are the flowers ( and the photos)

  7. That embroidery is just lovely. What a pretty little fairy. And I really enjoyed your flower pictures. So pretty and refreshing.

  8. The skirt is so sweet! Beautiful photos of your flowers--I love the black & white too!

    The flower photos are stunning. I liked the photo of the poppy that was from the side/the one just above the twins. It has a luminous quality. I also like the black and whites too.

  10. Adorable and the photos are beautiful.
