So creating seasonal vignettes is a really fun thing for me because I can two things done at once and the chore of dusting is pretty painless when visions of primping and fluffing are swimming in my head. Today I’m dressing aContinue reading “Dressing the Dresser”

He brought me a bouquet of… Pyrancantha! also know as Firethorn well I guess I could assume he thinks I’m hot but considering the thorns maybe I could assume that he thinks I’m as sharp as a tack on the other hand… maybe it’s because I can be a bit ornery and this is whatContinue reading “what does this say about me?”
