Do you like my new banner? It is a photo of one of my cosmos in my white garden.

Here's a few photos I took when we went to the MN Landscape Arboretum. I love this picture of the pink bee balm......
So many pink roses.

So many pretty dahlias...

where I create.......

I am getting my room put together..... I started out by buying these matching black book cases....and slowly adding other furniture. I made this C R E A T E banner on Sunday. I have had these letters for a couple of years just waiting for the right time.......well here it it.....and I had just the letter to C ~ R ~ E ~ A ~ T ~ E it.
Love all my vintage ledger paper, old reciepts.....can't wait to use all of them.

Some of my favorite things......old lace, buttons, vintage jewely, old reciept books, and old photos and books.

I L~O~V~E this new holder. We found it on our way to my moms for her birthday. It came out of the basement of a 75 year old electrical shop....the perfect place for all my ribbon, horse ribbons and millinery flowers.

Love old receipt books.
Some of my stamps and wonderful vintage beach babes.

A rainbow of rick rack.

Old check, vintage letters and 3 huge matching rhinestone buttons.

Thanks for coming along with me on a tour of my room where I create. I will share more later......I have to put together my inspiration board ......can't wait to get started!

more garden photos.....

I was taking some more photos today in my garden. I love this old bench I got for 50 cents at an auctions several years ago. I textured it to look the allysum growing around it. WOW.....I have a new color of hollyhock this year. Along with the white, light pink, dark pink and maroon.....i got this gorgeous peach. I took a close up of the center so you could see the beautiful color.
For Mothers Day, the boys gave me some seed for an all white garden......I love it. I love these flowers......I textured it to look vintage looking.
The boys give Pat a tomato plant for Fathers Day every are they doing well this year. Other people have told us they have only had green ones this year.....we have had a good crop so they are in different pretty!
