Magical Fairy Container Garden

I've been thinking of doing a fairy garden for some time ~ and since warm spring weather has been playing hide and seek with us here in Minnesota, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make an inside fairy container garden.  Fairies it turns out are kinda overpopulating and are in need of habitats - thus the rage.  And, well with my bff all the way in Maryland, I'm thinking why not make friends with some invisible people.  (Hmmmm. Lonely for some girl time much?) Fairy Gardens are starting to become popular enough … [Read more...]

FancyFriday ~ LINK UP on April 27th

We had such a great time with the Gathered Thoughts Link Up party and many talented and inspiring writers participated.  It made us rethink FancyFriday Link Ups. We want to hear from more of you! We want the party to grow and the conversations to continue. Basically, we don't want the time at the table to end. We seriously could linger here forever. FancyFriday's will be every last Friday of the month. Each month there will be a theme, you can find the next three month's themes, HERE. We would love for you to write a post … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Five ~ St. Patrick’s Day

When Irish eyes are smiling, sure 'tis like a morn in spring. In the lilt of Irish laughter, you can hear the angels sing.   (Photos: Padmita's Makeup Blog) When Irish hearts are happy all the world seems bright and gay, And when Irish Eyes are Smiling, sure, they steal your heart away. (Photo & Recipe: Jacques of All Trades) There's a tear in your eye and I'm wondering why, For it never should be there at all. With such power in your smile, sure a stone you'd beguile, And there's never a … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Five

Welcome again to Fancy Friday Five our weekly Blog Party Link Up where you can link all that was fancy to you!  Here was what was fancy this week for me! My very fancy girl ~ turned 8 this past week.  She is the epitome of fancy.  She is full of fancy wisdom ~ so much so that there may be a post dedicated to it in the near future.  But let me leave you with this piece of brilliance left on the family chalkboard in scribbled colored chalk. "You can change your hair, You can change your mind."  ~ Take that bit and seize the … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Five ~ Makes Me Smile

I was all set to share a few things I've found "Fancy" this week, but this morning, when I went to check my facebook, a friend had posted this video! A woman climbs over the Williamsburg Bridge in NYC and performs an aerial show that will take your breath away. I always find performance art Fancy. Last night as my kids sat around watching America Idol, somehow, felt, needles, buttons and thread came out and three of my boys and my daughter decided to stitch together dolls. It was totally a Fancy moment. This little scrap … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Five ~ Happy Inspiration

We've relaunched Fancy Friday our weekly linky party.  It's now Fancy Friday Five! Every Friday we're inviting you to join us at the table and share what 5 things were fancy to you.  And along with the change ~ there's been conversation about what "Fancy" just might be.  We don't want to give you the impression fancy has to be expensive, rich, overly done or beyond one's reach.  Fancy, to us, is closer to what good ole' Webster's says fancy is. 1. An image or representation of anything formed in the mind.  2. A whim  3. … [Read more...]

Fancy Friday Five~Link Party

I'm a bit giddy this morning! Chris Ann is on her way to Baltimore along with her husband Todd, to help me celebrate my 4oth! We will be getting together with a bunch of old friends and new tomorrow night at a local Indian restaurant.  This weekend will just be the icing on the cake to a wonderful birthday week! My Fancy Friday Five was hard to narrow down.  I was treated like a queen all week by my family.  And can you believe, they kept the 40, over the hill jokes to a minimum.  At least, most of them did.  The cards … [Read more...]
