Flowers and Simplicity

Yet another great weekend for me. About 2 times a year, my husband and a group of guys get together for a guys weekend. This time, my friend Laura (yes, we have the same name) and I got together as well (her husband is a part of the group too). We had a nice girls weekend - going to the farmer's market, babysitting a friends little boy, a little bit of shopping and a whole lot of talking. It was a nice, low stress, fun weekend. It didn't hurt that the weather is getting nicer too! At the farmer's market, I bought some flowers and here is a picture of some of them. My sister gave me this great vase for my birthday and I loved the two toned gerberas.

A custom project that I am working on is a large batch of invitations for a friend. I did up a couple samples (ensuring that they were quick and easy) so that he could pick. These are two that didn't make the cut, although I still really like the simplicity of them. And I really like the celery and chocolate brown together.
