Easter and White Sands and Ocean Breeze

I had a wonderful Easter and hope all reading this did as well. My grandson is such a cutie and loved his singing Easter bunny! I loved the bunny so much my husband got me a pink one too. The ears fly up in the air and flop and wiggle and it's just adorable!

This set just got listed on Etsy and I just love it. It is inspired by the white sands of Carmel, California set next to the blue ocean. It is close to Monterey Bay and just one of our most favorite places in the world. It's a very dog friendly little town set on the side of steep hill on the coast in a quiet bay with just the most wonderful dining and great places to shop! Hopefully we will get back there again - or win lottery and move there! I call this set White Sands and Ocean - not very original, but what it makes me think of. Oh, I can almost smell it and feel the breeze and the warmth of the sand talking about it!

Bridal Order

This is a bridal bouquet I just completed and shipped out last week. I love the colors - periwinkle and blues with ivory roses and calla lilies. I did 2 teardrops too for her gazebo in which she is getting married. The trim on the bows of these were just fabulous with some 6 inch pearl beaded fringe, some of which I now have listed on our Odyssey Cache site. I just love the romance of beads and think it is perfect for weddings. I got the venice lace from Mary, Not Martha on Etsy. Went back and got 2 more yards of 4 more colors. Don't know what I'll use it on, but I'm sure I'll find something!

One of my next projects is wedding flowers for my future daughter-in-law as my son is getting married July 2 this year! Fun, fun!

Anyhow, back to gardening. Can't make stuff and stay online all the time!
