Farmhouse Flowers (& a new favorite sign)

We visited a farmer's market on Friday, where a sweet
 sunflower bouquet caught my eye. 

A simple gallon glass jar for a vase atop an old wooden 
breadboard provide a rustic arrangement, fitting for a farmhouse.


The purple flowers made us think of the pink ones from "Horton Hears a Who." ;)


And remember this sign I made last week for a gift? (DIY here.)


The next day, our youngest made me a sign. 
Be. still. my. heart. 


And it came just in the nick of time as I was knee-deep in summer laundry and dishes!

For all you tired mamas or grand-mamas out there who fall into bed exhausted each night, you know what these little tokens of love mean...

So happy you stopped by today. I hope your week is off to a really good start!

    1. Not sure ;) but it was cute how he came in from the garage with that little piece of wood - he had told me he was going to go out there and make something. Xo

  3. I just spent a week watching my 4 grandsons, and this morning with my grandson who has Autism. This post was a breath of fresh air. Thank you for always posting the sweetest things in your heart. It blesses me fully.

    1. Oh that is so neat... they will never forget these times spent with you! I have found caring for my children to be the absolute most rewarding and tiring thing in the world. ;) We are blessed that my parents have a close relationship with our children as well. Thank you for investing into the next generation! We are all better off for it and I know that you and your grandchildren are blessed through it. Maybe this evening will bring a glass of tea and a good book for one dedicated grandmother?! Hope so! :)
