Beans, not just good for your heart!

Well after many years of religiously following some of my favorite blogs I have finally decided to start my own. I'm hoping to bring to you my creativity, recipes and some fun and laughter too (I hope.) I can't wait to share my ideas, my home and my crazy family with you all.

To get started I am sharing a floral arrangement I recently made. I have been making custom floral arrangements and wreaths for years and have a lot of fun creating one of a kind pieces. This one is the perfect accent for fall. The florals and foliage are gently placed inside a glass apothecary jar (which I broke the top of and needed to find another use for) that is layered with an assortment of beans. Yes, you read that right, beans! How appropriate for fall, not to mention quite the conversation piece. It's very easy to make so I encourage you to run out and buy your bean assortment. Have fun with it. You can mix all the beans up like confetti or layer them as I did. Try placing a candle in your container in place of flowers if you prefer that's also a great idea. I love using natural elements when I decorate for Fall.

Well thanks so much for stopping by. I am so glad to be here with all of you. Before you leave check out my ETSY store. One of my passions is creating floral arrangements and I plan on adding new pieces weekly. Ciao!
