The other day the kids were laughing in the front yard and yelling there is a Leprechaun on our house. I got excited hoping that he brought me a pot of gold or even a box of Lucky Charms would do. I came outside and sure enough I saw the shadow of a person smoking a pipe that looked like a Leprechaun.

I swear the kids and I looked for about 15 minutes trying to figure out what was the shadow was coming from. My 7 year old was convinced that it was a Leprechaun. Then we figured it out. It was the weird cactus that we have in our front yard that I refuse to cut down because it is so out of place it makes me smile when I walk by it.

Roses are red, pink, blue, mustard, and coral

These rosettes are just another beautiful detail Heather from Amorology had me make for a wedding she has coming up. After making them I was inspired to make a Valentine's dress for my little sweetie. The dress was made with red coudery with white with mustard lace on the sleeves and bottom of the dress with the rosette clusters on the waist made it seem like see walked off the set of Mad Men (if you haven't seen this show I highly recommend it).
Thanks again Heather for always inspiring me.
