Quick vase project

I completely forgot that today was one of my Sisters-in-Laws birthday, and when I noticed it on facebook I my brain immediately went into panic mode. I quickly decided that I would get her a nice bouquet of wild flowers and put them in one of the many vases we have collecting dust in our garage. I figured I would add a little handmade touch to it as well to make it more personal.

I found a jug vase that is just her style and proceeded to get crafty. I tied a big bow out of this awesome chevron print burlap, and then assembled a simple tag. I rushed through this as we were getting ready to leave, but I love how it turned out. She loved it as well, which really is all that matters.

Taking a few minutes to add a personal touch is a great way to make someone feel extra special and loved.


We have some friends who raise and show Belgian horses, and today we made it out to their home so Ashlyn could get out of the house for a bit and enjoy the horses. The only places she has pretty much gone for the past 4 months is appointments, which is really no fun at all. She has gained a lot of strength the past few weeks and is able to stand a bit while holding onto something so it was a great opportunity to take her out and get some fresh air. 

These are my favorite photos of the day. 

This last one melts my heart.
