This one of the South Carolina marsh was the winner. I haven't found a home for it yet, but it's lovely just like this on the kitchen bar! Any suggestions for framing? Something simple for sure.
Here are a few more examples of her beautiful work...

The last 3 pictures are the arrangements at the Rehearsal Dinner at Trumps. These arrangements were moved to the Reception location for Saturday night. I think that's a great idea to use the arrangements for both events. We've done several events where the rehearsal dinner flowers are "fluffed" and used for the reception the next night. Pretty economical if you ask me!

1. Understand you share your garden with many creatures that need food and shelter.
Well, about the only other creature, besides my dog Lucy that I care about feeding are the birds! I have a bird feeder I try to keep full and got a bird bath for Christmas. So, I'm willing to share my garden with Birds...and really that's it!
2. Plant Natives.
One of my Birthday presents was a book of Georgia Native Plants...Perfect!
3. Remove Invasives
Working on it!
4. Enroll in a Gardening Course.
I've been eyeing a few the Botanical Gardens is offering this Spring.
5. Donate Excess Produce.
I like this idea, but don't think I'll be quite at the level of donating this year!!
6. Buy Gardening Accessories.
Another Birthday present was Lowe's gift cards!!
7. Change your garden's appearance.
This is one of my personal 2010 resolutions!!
8. Plant heirloom flowers and veggies.
I consider my style to be classic...so I think this is a great resolution for the garden!
9. Practice less poisonous plant disease and insect controls.
10. Buy Local.
I'm a member of locallygrown.net, it's local farms that have their produce for sale. I like to buy some of my veggies there each week!
Bring on 2010!!

I like these shelves that are just 'tucked away.'
And, cozy up here on a rainy day....
I love these bamboo shelves...and probably will be what I start my shelves endeavor with!
I love this fresh look and having shelves close to the kitchen to store your cookbooks!

I had to leave my trees up just a little longer for the winter months. That framed picture is the photo above! Until it starts falling, we'll have our own winter wonderland indoors...
and keep looking outdoors for the Snow!!

I've been infatuated with this chandelier from Pottery Barn for quite a long time and when it went on sale I snatched it up. My patient brother, Tommy helped with the installation and with the dimmer, (I installed!) it looks great!
The pink in my bathroom is a great contrast to the green and yellow tile and gives just the pop I was looking for! Painting is the quickest way to transform a room.I 'm debating on this color, Borrowed Light from Benjamen Moore or a lighter shade for my next transformation....my bedroom! Doesn't this color just make make you feel peaceful and content?
