A Flourishing Garden

"The gardens that make us happiest
flourish because we have taken the time
to make sure they feed our souls
and fill a special place in our lives."

"Sometimes you have to really think
about what you want
in your garden...
once the beds are laid out
and the rose bushes planted."

~ Lindley Karstens ~

I combined 3 elements to create these garden-themed,
printable tags. Two feature an old-fashioned, white rose.
I kept the others simple with portions of an ornament.
The ornament reminded me of both stylized branches
and metalwork from something like a garden gate.
The background is a receipt from Berry Seed Company.

Thank you for stopping by!

Messages of Christmas Cheer

Carol singing, church bells ringing,
Once more Christmastime is here.
Children laughing, grownups beaming,
Hearts are warm with Christmas cheer.

~ Ruby Lee Mitchell ~

Hope you're enjoying this Christmas season!
These messages were handwritten, and tucked into our
Christmas tree. A fine-tipped black marker was used
to create the original design. This chalkboard texture
was added for another option.

I love their simplicity,
and hope you do to.

Merry Christmas!
Thanks for stopping by!

Sleigh Bell Polka

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
in a one-horse open sleigh!

~ James L. Pierpont ~

I was looking through my stash of sheet music, and
came across this gem, in a collection of c. 1940's polkas.
Enjoy original and black & white versions.
