Busy time of year

Like everyone else, I have been busy as a bee lately. It seems a lot of my peeps have birthdays around this time of year so I am constantly working on birthday surprises! Below are some of my recent creations.
Being that Adam and Josh are both "International Men of Mystery," International themed baby cupcakes were in order! My nephew turned 1 last month so I headed to Atlanta to help him celebrate. A birthday wouldn't be complete, though, without a fancy, over-the-top hat to match your party color scheme! As you can see, my nephew was not a fan.
Here are some gifts I recently sent to a friend for her big day. It's hard to tell which I love more sometimes-picking out the gifts or wrapping them!

I celebrated the 2nd anniversary of buying my house this past June 15th and I think it is high time for a little change around here! I am in the process of picking out a color to paint my bedroom as well as a new bedding ensemble. I am doing a mint greenish/pale blue gray and orange color scheme inspired by this "Marie Claire" cover:
My existing chocolate brown furniture will work well with the new color palette.
Here are some of the lovely orange pillows I have found:

Planting a variety of items

Spring has sprung and it is crAzy at my house! I have been busy planting seeds, bulbs, a peach tree (holler) and nursing potted plants I purchased. The photo below was taken this morning of one of my 3 Iceland Poppy plants. It makes me smile when I am walking up and down the steps coming and going from my house. My vegetable/fruit garden is coming along nicely as well. I planted spaghetti squash, tomatoes, watermelons and carrots. Each row has sprouted and, in the months to come, will hopefully produce something for me to eat! I will take more pictures as things get bigger and make for more interesting photos. Happy Spring!
