Vintage Flower Shots & Preschool Teacher Appreciation Gifts

I haven't been home much lately...I think my blogging adventures are going to be slow throughout the summer. It just keeps getting busier and busier {good thing!!} at work.

Today's post is pretty simple. I enjoy linking up to Tricia's {A Rosy Note} Photo Feature Friday.
Every week she has a themed link up party. They are a lot of fun! I know next to nothing about photography and I enjoy looking at her beautiful photos, along with everyone else's that participates!

The theme this week is flowers. I do love fresh flowers. In case you haven't noticed {if you have read the last few posts} it seems to be the focal point!! Sorry!

Moving right along!! Today is the girl's last day for the school year at preschool. I wanted to do something original as an appreciation gift for the three awesome teachers at their school. I tried and tried to think of what to do....and didn't want to add to their mug collection!! :)

Well time passed quickly and didn't have enough of it to do what I really wanted to do...so they recieved each a cute little card with some Maci and Makenzie original artwork, a WONDERFUL smelling jar candle....and flowers!! {you're wondering...wow that original!!}.
BUT!! I wrapped the stems in burlap garland...and tied them with a bow!! They did end up looking cute!!

I did have a few stems left to play with after I was done 'flower bundle-ing' so this is what I ended up with...

{I've had the 'jardin' pot for several years and just figured out what it meant!!! So smart...I know!}

I do love the vintage twist good ole' photo editing can give it!! {works wonders!!}

Hope you all have a wonderfiul Memorial Day Weekend....

Tonight will be fun for us...my brother is planning on proposing to his girlfriend!!!
