Before the Storm

Our town was hit with a pretty big storm recently.
I wanted to snap a couple pictures of our beautiful flowers before the wind came and knocked them over.

Three of my mom's quilts were displayed in our Village Hall recently.
It was part of this new quilting festival our town has going on.
Also, three of my great-grandmother, grandmother and Mom's quilts were talked about in one of the exhibits.
I'm so proud of her!
You can check out her blog here.

I completely forgot to post 'Smashing Saturday' this week, I remembered Saturday night and felt horrible!
I have the post all ready (finally!) and will put it up this Saturday. It's done: scheduled and everything, haha!

Hope you all have a wonderful week, Happy Monday!


  1. Those flowers are gorgeous.

    SO neat and pretty.

    YAY Mom! That quilt is gorgeous. When you get married some day and have kids she is going to hook you up with gorgeous quilts I bet.

    1. Thanks so much Juju! :)

      She's already started some quilts for the future: I have TWO baby quilts for future grandchildren (she finished them when I was just 16 lol!)

  2. A) Pretty flowers!
    B) I want that dog - so cute! What kind is it?
    C) Awesome quilt!

    1. Aw thank you, Lea! :)
      He is a bichon- cocker spaniel. So he's pretty much a mini cocker spaniel! He comes up to about knee height and he's my little angel! <3 Thanks!

  3. So jealous of your flowers! The heat is so bad here, our flowers are hardly ever as vibrant and pretty. And woo, your mom is talented! I love quilts.

    1. Thanks Briana! Aw I hope you get pretty flowers and not as bad of heat next year! Thanks, I'll tell her! :)
