Spring Ramblings

I've sat down to write several times this week but the words have failed me. Too much stress I think as my muse has been fairly quiet. The weather however has been on the gorgeous side and I have spent a bit of time in the garden weeding and applying a new layer of mulch. Puttering is almost as relaxing as weaving until you decide to set a couple more stones in the pathway!

I did however play with a bit of a basketry weave in wire and while it's a bit wonky here and there I don't think it isn't anything a little tap of the nylon hammer can't fix :) I think I may play with this weave a little more it might just be what the muse was waiting for with Courtney's scarab.

Since it is spring break and my kiddo is waiting to watch a movie with me I'll leave you with a couple photos from my garden wish list on Pinterest......

I love Lilacs and would love a bush or two in my garden.

I have a couple itty bitty solar lights now but would LOVE to do something creative like this. These baskets would be uber cute done in copper wire don't you think?

None of my bi-colors are blooming yet, but my deep purples are and they smell wonderful too!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll see you next time!



  1. That iris is gorgeous! you have a great garden wish list!

  2. I love the basket luminarios! What a great idea.

  3. Thank you! :)

    That Iris color has been on my list for awhile now love it!

    I keep staring at the baskets trying to decide which gauge would work best. I've made baskets from galvanized fencing before. I'm tempted to do that again and just weave the bands in copper. Then I could just tuck the solar lights inside.
