Tuesday dose of cuteness...

I love this Emmi Blue puppy. She brightens my days :-)

Herb Table- thank you Martha Stewart!

OK, so a while back my husband and I were watching Martha Stewart (yes, sometimes my husband watches those kinds of shows with me, AND actually enjoys them. Strange, I know)... anyway, we saw this nifty little thing that she called a Salad Table. Now, it is already past salad growing season here, and so I thought "hmm I wonder if I could do the same thing but plant herbs instead...". So yesterday the hubs and I went to Home Depot, Lowes, and OSH and got all the supplies needed for making our very own HERB TABLE :-)

Here is the link to Martha's Salad Table for instructions, supplies and all that jazz...

Honestly though, I think ours turned out better, and WAY more cute. What do you think?

HERBS: lemon balm, strawberry, mint, sweet basil, parsley, and onion chives

My HOT Fireman husband building our Herb Table. Isn't he a hunk? I think so!

I couldn't resist showing you this- my new rose bush. Its called "Angel Face". My great grandmother always had the most lovely lavender roses, that smelled so sweetly. I love it, and I love that we have such a creative Creator God!

Well, thanks for listening to my ramblings. I let you know how the Herb Table grows- I'm hoping to have a full herb garden!

Grace & Peace-

New Toy...

I got a new camera :-) A Nikon D80, and I'm pretty sure I'm in love. I'm so excited to finally have a nice SLR camera, and am having a great time learning to use it. Its been SO fun! Anyway, I'm hoping that this blog can be a place to share my love for life, cooking, projects, and (new love) photography. So, to start this new phase of my blog I thought I'd post a few of my favorite photos that I've taken so far.

Spring has bloomed.

This little light of mine.

My best model- Emmi.
