Wildflower Photos and Salt Dough Flowers

Hello everyone! Long time no see! I hope you are all doing well. Summer is a busy one with baseball games and other activities. Trying to stay cool during those baseball games is quite the challenge. It has been SO hot here lately.

At one of our son’s baseball games there is a wildflower preserve right next to the fields. So I grabbed my camera and started snapping away. I couldn’t believe the colors! All of the flowers were drifting in the breeze.







Here is a picture I took on the 4th of July of the flag that proudly hangs on our front porch.


And here are the rest of our salt dough creations. My daughter and I were busy! We kind of went a little crazy on the salt dough flowers! I just love them too much! What am I going to do with ALL of these you ask….I have NO idea! But they are so much fun to make!





Did I mention that I LOVE the flowers!? Haha!



My daughter and I just sorted through our Fall and Halloween cookie cutters! Yep, you guess it…that is our next project! It’s going to be Fall-tastic! So stay tuned!

Well, this post was rather random wasn’t it? Filled with some fun photos I have taken recently. I hope you enjoyed a little of this and a little of that!

Until next time, take care.

  6. I love all your bowl fillers. I have a bunch too and I thought about what I would do with them all, but then decided that they would just go in every room regardless. And they smell nice too, so it is added bonus. You did a great job on all those. I have had to buy new cookie cutters with the seasons as mine we so old they weren't pretty at all, but now I have a nice new collection of cookie cutters as well.

  7. Wow! You sure have been busy! But what a fun project to do with your daughter! They turned out great!
