A Trip To.....


Today, while we were 'killing time' before Maci's monthly clinic appointment, we stopped by our favorite grocery store {no kidding!! It's a gem!!}

Once you get past all the lovely flower displays....

You come across the most enticing bakery/deli area. 
It is, I'm sure, a smidgen of one might feel when they go to a market in France.

Anyways, we left with some of these..

and Maci chose these...

Bad photo, I know, but they are little Paris themed cookies!! Notice the Eiffel Tower, 'gigi', french flag, and flower shapes!! 

The reason I didn't get a photo of my macaroons?? 
Well, it was my first time EVER trying these things, and well, in about 5 minutes or less, all six...
Were GONE! 

My favorite flavor? Almond. 

I am so going back to get more, next time in the area :)

Happy Mother's Day to all you mommy's in bloggy land :)


Spring-y Mantle

What a difference a little tweaking will do!! {oh, and a jar of flowers!}

Have a beautiful day!



Silver Planter

On a recent trip to Goodwill, I came across this treasure....

I had a purpose in mind for it right away-
Thanks to a display stand right inside Walmart of plants, I grabbed a few. 
I recently have become inspired to put live plants in my home, partly from here.
Plus, they are good for the air quality in your home {I've heard}...

So silver bowl/dish + pretty little mini plants =

I quickly found a place to put this rock. We picked it up from the beach while on our recent trip to Florida!

Hopefully, there isn't anything wrong with putting plants in a silver bowl, without draining holes. Guess I'll have to see if they die or not {I'm not known for my watering abilities..} haha, I might not have to worry about those drainage holes!! 

Have a beautiful day!!
