Rambling from the Roost: Volume 12

The month of May came upon us so fast, didn’t it? That means I suddenly have a really long list of things to do, inside, and outside. There is window washing, planting in the flower beds, updating my front porch decor, and getting a jump start on my vegetable garden!

Do you feel like you have a long list too? Well, you are not alone.

Plus, we just returned from a fun vacation in Hilton Head so my mind is still sitting on the beach! ha

(I’ll be sharing a round-up of all our favorite things to do in Hilton Head one day soon.)

This a quote for when you’re feeling overwhelmed

I know everything on my list will get done, but at times it seems a bit overwhelming.

My motto has always been ‘one thing at a time’!

I hope you keep that in mind when you feel you have so much to accomplish in a day!

Let’s get started!

Creative Ideas from my blogging friends

I’m fortunate to have the best blogging friends that are so creative and talented. I’m obsessed with these this week.

Wendy from WM Design House made these out of old frames. Aren’t they so pretty? These would be gorgeous on a covered porch or patio!

When I saw Missy’s Easy-pressed flower vases I knew I would have to make these pretty vases. I’m thinking they would be perfect for delivering flowers to a friend or neighbor.

Looking for ideas for decorating baskets for summer? Carol from Blue Sky at Home has three great ideas to get your home looking festive!

Kim from Pefecting Places shared how to make an Easy Mother’s Day Centerpiece with Annuals. I love how she used the darling planted pots filled with such vibrant colors. The pink and white gingham napkins brought the whole look together beautifully.

In case you missed it

This week’s posts included a few recipes that are not only perfect for Mother’s Day but any dinner or brunch menu!

Any time I can I use white pedestal dishes to serve the Best Cranberry Walnut Muffin Recipe with Orange Marmalade or any other recipe, I’m a happy girl. I love how pedestal dishes look on the table or kitchen island. Amazon has so many to choose from. One is prettier than the next.

My Scallop Salad recipe was a huge hit. It’s perfect for the times that you want a quick and simple dinner that is huge in flavor and healthy. This recipe is all that!
