Happy Sunday everyone!
I forgot that yesterday was April Fools Day.
Did you prank anyone yesterday?
Did you get pranked?
I think Bob forgot too, as he did not do anything to me.
What's in store for your day today?
I am going to finish laundry.
Decorate the spare bedroom for Spring.
Finish my fireplace mantle display...
and then do some hooking.
I made 30 chicken enchiladas with refried beans yesterday,
so warming that up for dinner tonight.
I learned how to make these from my former husband's
grandmother who could not speak English.
I took 4 years of Spanish in school, and she loved
teaching me how to cook.
She even made her tortillas from scratch.
Although I no longer make my refried beans
from scratch anymore, I still do not buy them from the can.
I do buy the pinto beans in a can and doctor them up.
The true way is to cook them all day long
using lots of bacon grease & dried beans.
Not so healthy, so that's why I don't make
them that way anymore.
It still takes most of the day to make the enchiladas,
which is why I make so many.
So enough of my rambling.
Today I wanted to show you an easy way to add
some Spring to your home.
For this display, you will need a wood container.
I used a small grain measure.
Styrofoam in a dome shape, one faux tulip,
You can use spanish moss, or green grass or excelsior.
Place styrofoam in your container.
Then take your tulip and place a hole in the middle
of the styrofoam.
Add your filler (flax in mine)
Leave a bit of a hole in the middle to add your tulip back.
Place your tulip back in the hole.
Placed next to my lamp.
Completed table display.
For the next flower display,
I used the same principal.
I grabbed a square wood box.
Added 5 Grape Hyacinths.
(2 white and 3 blue)
Then added green excelsior.
If you noticed, the 1 3 5 rule goes for flower displays too!
Hope this gets you in the mood to add
some flowers to your own displays.
Spring Flower Display Blessings To All!
