Welcome To The 19th Masterpiece Monday and...

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

 I haven't been doing any crafting for awhile, which is killing me 'cause I really enjoy it. Instead, I've been working on a pretty big project that's been consuming most of my free time.

 I've been clearing out my long neglected side yard where I once had a vegetable garden. I'll post some before's and afters when it's finished, hopefully soon. Above is a picture of Italian parsley after it has gone to seed. So, yesterday before tearing it out, I clipped the long branches off.
 I thought they'ed make a lovely green bouquet. And so they do! I ought to let my herbs go to seed more often. I love the simplicity of this.

 Today I got a couple of early Mother's Day gifts from Trader Joe's! Yay! The first was a bouquet of pink tulips. So I added them in with the parsley.

 Wow, the tulips are gorgeous and the parsley makes a great filler!
 Sooo beautiful! It'll be even better once all of the tulips open.

And secondly, oh, someone knows me very well! I love these! Trader Joe's has just about chocolate covered everything. These dark chocolate covered almonds are on the top of my list! Delicious and good for you.
I hope you have a very blessed Mother's Day!
