  •   chenaultcb I would love to see the end result of what you do with those, they are gorgeous! 1w
  •   lolafalola @chenaultcb theses flower heads actually had very wonky stems so they only fell forward no matter how I arranged them. I ultimately cut the stems very short and stuck then in a vase. No pretty be-ribboned bouquets today 1w

lolafalola I found this darling little book at the antique mall yesterday. As near as I can tell it's from the early 1900's (no copyright or published date-just a tiny book supplier sticker inside the front cover.) The beautiful leather cover caught my eye and the $14 price told me it was destined to come home with me! #joyfinding2015 #thestudioonline #mystillsundaycompetition @kimklassen #gatheredstyle @aquietstyle PSA: Watered down coffee fills in for tea in a pinch 1w

lolafalola A day early for #fridayfaffingcompetition but I gotta take advantage of a quiet moment when I can. And this is the closest I can get to a potting bench: my dining room table#joyfinding2015 #thestudioonline 2w

lolafalola #Tbt Exactly 3 years ago today our lives drastically changed: we were sitting in the PICU with our oldest daughter who had just been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. At first we thought the world as we knew it was over, and in a way it was. But her diagnosis was not the death knell it could have been even a few decades ago. It was not the death knell we assumed it would be. Sure, road trips are a little less spontaneous, meals take a bit more thought, and run of the mill illnesses are taken a bit more seriously, but our girl is still the same girl we've known and loved these 19 years. A girl with dreams and aspirations and determination. In fact she's a better version of herself: stronger, funnier, a bit more serious, and definitely more grown up. She can do anything and she proves it Every. Single. Day. So stIck that in your ear, T1D! #t1d #jdrfadvocate 2w

lolafalola Little did I expect when @carolyn_eicher asked if I'd like another succulent to replace the one Gus ate that I would find a package FILLED with succulents in my mailbox just a few days later! Oh. My. Gosh! @carolyn_eicher you are such a blessing sweet friend! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! And @kimklassen and @xantheb tell me isn't this what you had hoped for when you planned #gathercalifornia..,friendships made for life?! My heart is overflowing! #joyfinding2015 #succulents 3w

lolafalola "But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold."-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. Inspired by @bellagracemagazine and @shuttersisters I dedicate this image to my friends that breathe soul goodness into my life. You are the women that encourage me artistically and spiritually. Who offer advice and gentle exhortation to be the woman, the wife, the mother, the artist, the friend I am called to be. You are the friends of my youth who have seen me through some incredibly tough times and helped me laugh through them even as you held my hand as I cried. And you are the friends from my adulthood who have mostly only seen me laughing and have joined in with me even when you didn't know the joke. There are too many of you to list individually but know that I think and pray for you all, giving thanks for you and how you've touched my life and heart. #giftinggrace #bellagracemagazine #joyfinding2015 1mon
