A Few Of My Favorite Things

Welcome to my first post. I have been going back and forth as to what should be the first thing to ever go on my blog and I had a million ideas, family pics, my house, decorating ideas, my garden etc. After pondering for quite sometime, I came across a few pictures I had taken this summer and realized that they encompass everything.

My kids and I found this bottle at a vintage candy store this summer and had to have it. Not only is it blue and white (my favorite colors), but Avery is my daughter's name. It was perfect. Besides the flourescent green liquid ( lemon lime soda)  that was in it, I knew it would serve a purpose in our house. It is now a vase to put a rose from the garden in it. It  can only hold one rose because the opening isn't too big. The rose that is in this picture is called a Moonstone. It is the greatest blend of pink and white. This bottle and the rose in it encompass all of my favorite things , family, decorating, my garden, my house and even summertime!!
I think it is always fun to decorate with unexpected things. When your out shopping or shopping your house, look for alternate uses for ordinary items.
