OOO, What To Do.....

I could sooo easily become a full fledged
HOARDER...
To hoard...store up, stock up on, put aside, put by, lay by, lay up, set aside.

I find way too many cute things that other folks toss in the trash
that I want to hang onto.

For instance.....

 Brightly colored CHECKED lids on Smuckers jars
REFUSE to let me throw the jars away....

 I hang on to them for dear life
and have NO clue what to put in them...
other than flowers...

 ...any ideas of what to fill these cutie pies with...?
pretty buttons..
vintage wooden thread spools...
pecan pieces...
tiny marshmallows....
M & M CANDIES....***

 and cute glass bottles...
O MY

 how in the world can you throw away a bottle
with JOHNNY APPLESEED on it...???







 I just go outside, clip a few runners off the hedges around here
and plop them in a cute bottle and
fall in LUV..... 

and you would be surprised how long these stay pretty..several days...
and
then go get some more !  😍 



...after filling the bottles with cuteness,
you start playing with them....
you move them all around....
add a pumpkin to the mix...
 ♥ ♥ ♥

add a drop dead gorgeous tea towel...😆😆


and pretty soon, those little sassy bottles
start posing for you...





They all start looking so dang cute
you can't wait to drink something from another pretty bottle so you can add it to your hoardness. stash.....

They even make my vintage gum ball machine look happy !




My girl brought me 2 more of those delicious peaches...
they are there on the end of the basket of oranges...


remember that I made some of the best preserves and then
 peach syrup from the peelings of ONE peach.....♥ ♥


...I just may make some more with one of these beauties...
and one I will cut up, lightly sprinkle with sugar
and add to my breakfast cereal...
YUM..sounds sooo good.










“Sunrise paints the sky with pinks and the sunset with peaches. ..."






 Most of the time it's
 THE LITTLE THINGS
that make our hearts sing.... 

like pretty bottles...
cute jars with checked li ds... 
and big ripe peaches !!!

They just keep on blooming...

Every time I cut a small bouquet from our

Wild Flower Garden...
I think it is the last one for the season...

Then, I go out to take the trash to the dumpster,
and there they are....
 looking pretty and blooming all over the place...
so I cut a few more and bring them inside...


leaving enough flowers out side to satisfy the beautiful butterflies....

A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.

 Into a ball jar with a cool ribbon around it..

Here's hoping you still have a few blooms
 bringing a smile to your face
and a song in your heart.

 MUCH LOVE, bj
