Happy Spring Sisters

Bobby G and I are hosting a little "Happy Spring Celebration Brunch" this weekend for family.  Sharing my saved seeds from last Fall ....the charming Candy Cane Zinnias as a small favor for my sisters.  The  starter pots were made from rolled up newspapers. Love that they are so organic and seem very French Farm house to me. (If you live in the countryside of France and are reading this don't laugh! :) Fabulous because you can plant both the pot and plant right into the ground.  Love it!   Happy Spring ~  


For lots more inspiration.......just make like a bunny (ha!...get it?!) and hop on over to these charming blogs.  Thank you to the wonderful hostess of each blog.

Dear Lynn, What a great idea...do you know how long seeds can be saved? A friend gave us some Lupine seeds from Sweden last year. I have kept them in the fridge..doy you think they are still good?
Have a wonderful weekend (it's almost here)

Hey, Lynn!

Candy cane zinnias sound neat to me, and I think it's a cute idea. Sounds like your party's going to be fun!

Speaking of which, I have a little video up I want you to see. You will appreciate it. Not saying any more. LOL!

XO,

Sheila :-)

What a great little memento of your brunch. I love the homespun look with newspaper and the tag. It is the gift that will be enjoyed all summer long.
