A Flannel Friendsgiving

It was our first time hosting a gathering under the name of Where Roses Bloom, and what a success it was! A Flannel Friendsgiving came together over many, many dedicated hours to painting leaves, handwriting place cards, gathering pine cones, and creating elegant floral arrangements. Oh, and lots and lots of baking.  We are so incredibly happy with how everything turned out, and extremely impressed by the talented cooks we call friends! Who knew?!

We are two very blessed girls who are so thankful for the opportunity to have their friends gather together and enjoy each other’s company during this busy holiday season. Take a look at our pictures as we reminisce on such a beautiful night with a few close Nashville friends.

We hope that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving with those you who are dear to you.

With lots of love,

The World’s Longest Yardsale

About a month ago I was invited to go on a weekend trip along Highway 127 with friends. Of course, I couldn’t turn this amazing adventure down! We gathered up a few road trip necessities, and headed out on the road early one Saturday morning. It was so incredible to see miles upon miles of yard sales! Within minutes of stopping at the first place, I knew I was hooked for the next 48 hours. I never knew that so many people could come together for a weekend to sell so many unique treasures!

Check out some of the great deals below that I found along Highway 127. I can’t wait to check out next year!

1: $1.50- Small striped green glasses
2: $1.00- Plastic skeleton keys
3: $2.50- Thermos
4: $5.00- Tin canisters
5: $1.00- Embroidered frame
6: $15.00- 2 Pyrex bowls
7: $4.00- Pinocchio + Elvis records

I think my favorite find of the weekend had to be the two Pyrex bowls that I got both for $15! I’d been hoping for some for so long, so it made me so happy to finally find some for my home.

Have you found any incredible finds lately?

Happy thrifting!

DIY: Memory Book

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Today could not be a more perfect day to celebrate the father in your life. I wanted to share with you today a quick and fun way to make a memory book  for someone special whether it be your father or your best friend. It’s a great way to express your love for them and also allows you to express your creative side, too!

I purchased my scrapbook at the local craft store as a pre-built scrapbook created by K & C Company. The pages are all unique and bound into the book so that helped me save on time and money.

I gathered old photos and extras I could use for added detail on the pages to make each page truly one-of-a-kind. You can choose to add whatever you like to your pages such as old ticket stubs, magazine clippings, newspaper articles– the sky’s the limit!

When I began this memory book, I focused on NOT forcing myself to be the “average” scrapbooker and to let myself be completely expressive. My pages are filled with scraps of paper and fun objects that helped bring each to life.

Don’t be afraid to doodle on your pages if you’d like! Make each page as personal as you’d like, and it’s completely up to you to put in as much time and detail as you want.

And don’t worry about making a mess, it happens! Allow yourself the space to get in your creative zone. I think it’s extremely important that you show what you feel inside in this memory book of yours! Below are a few excerpts from my scrapbook I made as a memory book of my father. He was a very special man who loved everyone so much! I had so much fun spending my nights putting together a book of memories of him.

I hope you have a great time making your own book and gifting it to that special someone if you so choose.

Love,

Rosemary
