A Rose Poem

Today I was going to plant my roses. I’m new at rose gardening, I  decided it might be a great gardening activity, keep me outside longer. We bought an older home 2 years ago and it needs some yard work. So I bought roses; climbing roses, rose bushes and rose ground cover. But after all this beautiful weather it’s supposed to freeze this week. So I’m going to wait a few days. So instead I took a photo of a miniature rose I have in my craft room. So here’s a little photo with a little rose poem to go along. Have a blessed Sunday everyone.



A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns
O my Luve’s like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly played in tune.As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry:

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it ware ten thousand mile.

Craft Room Makeover, Little Details

My craft room hasn’t had time to acquire that “lived in” look that I love so much. In a year from now it will look different as I begin to make new things and find those little details that make so many craft room unique. But I’ve tried to include a few details. As you’ll be able to see I have a kind of bird theme going on…not on purpose, I’m just always picking up little bird things.

One thing I love in my enlarged space is the room for all my craft supplies. There is room for everything now. I don’t feel cramped. I’m really glad I went with the Martha Stewart craft storage because it really is designed for the crafter in mind. The drawers are not only wide but long. They store alot! Wait! Does this mean I can buy more craft supplies??

The Make Beautiful Things Poster

Make Beautiful Things Poster

Imagine my delight when I saw this Make Beautiful Things poster over at Pinterest . I immediately grabbed it and put it on my Great Blogs Board and then tracked down the creator of this poster. This led me to a really nifty blog called Landee See, Landee Do A great DIY blog full of all kinds of great photos and DIY ideas. The best part was that Landee has this poster as a FREE downloadable in different sizes and colors….very generous!  Landee also has a terrific Etsy Shop where she sells her vinyl and board graphics. I am really tempted to ask her to please whip me up this poster so I can put it in my craft studio! I’ll keep you updated!
