It’s Demo With a Side of Peaches: Mixed Media Collage
I mentioned a few weeks ago that we were expanding our garden. Well, thanks to the beautiful weather that we have had lately, we started the demolition this past weekend. We tore everything out, transplanted the plants into pots, and started clearing the land. My hubby built one new planter so we could estimate where the other planters are going to go. We went from this…
We will be expanding past that long board on the grass and possibly adding fruit trees where the pots are situated. It’s going to take a while because we will only be working on weekends so hopefully we will have nice weather every weekend from here until Mother’s Day weekend.
Baking to Commemorate Our Loss
Today, marked 6 years since our baby, Faolan, went to heaven. You can read my story and view my grief art journal HERE. Every year we celebrate his memory with a cake and candles. This year I made this Apple Coffee Cake. Since I didn’t have apples I substituted peaches.
Recently, I have spent time on Instagram as it is the perfect place to get some creative mojo. While cramming for inspiration this afternoon, I came across the collages that Julie Liger-Belair makes. If you have a chance, check out her account. Her collages are so fun. So, with only an hour to create, I thought I would attempt making one, using only scraps on my table. Here’ s what I came up with.
I am not sure what I am going to do with this collage, maybe frame it?
I am joining the Tea day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is a new flavor I purchased last week. Tiesta Tea – Chai Love, Loose Leaf Spiced Chai Black Tea is very yummy and full of a lot of spice. I would like to try it steeped in Coconut milk. I don’t know about you but I can’t get enough of spicy tea. My favorite ingredient is the cardamom pods. As of yet, I haven’t had a tea from Tiesta Tea that I haven’t liked.
Happy Tea Day,
