I've been wanting to make stepping stones FOREVER! I bought a kit at Michaels which comes with cement mix, mosaic pieces, and the stone template. I made this one for out front garden. I am in the process of making a whole bunch of them with Mike's, Coco's and my name on them for a path in out new and improved garden in the back of our house. I'll be sure to post the pics when they are all done!!

I've been waiting to do this for quite some time now, opening up my on etsy shop! Little by little there will be more items added to the store. I will be creating all different types of crafts. I'm so excited to run a little online store. Be sure to check out my new blog under my business name: Victorian Petals!

Back in the beginning of March I went to the Rochester Flower Show. There was so many beautiful displays, tons of spring flowers everywhere.
These tulips looked like a type of rose!
one of the florist that had a awesome display, covering a mannequin with moss, flowers and other natural items. Great idea!
one of the amazing bonsai plants.
I can't wait to see next years show. Be sure to check a flower show in your own town!

I was hanging outside and took some pictures of the blooms blooming in our gardens. Forsythia, daffodils, and many others. I love this time of year to see everything turning green and hear the birds chirping right when I wake up in the morning.
Since I have taken these pics last Friday, my many forsythia bushes have turned into bright yellow blobs. They are so gorgeous, I wish they bloom all year round.

It's been so nice here in upstate NY and Coco and I are lovin every minute of it. Playing outside, and going for lots of walks. Doesn't she look so happy in that pic??
While in the Caribbean we notice a lot of shops with "Coco" in it. Here's some examples of some of the stores; it made us miss her even more!
Her new nickname is "Cocolito".

I have returned!! I know it's been awhile. It's has been so nice here and I have been working on a lot of different projects! Here's one since we've been back for Va-ca.
I collected sand from the beaches we visited. Barbados, Antigua, St. Kitts, St. Maarten, and San Juan. I got these cute bottles from Michaels, filled them up, added the cork, and wrapped twine around the stem of the bottle. I made these tags by dying them with food coloring and water. I let them sit in the dye for about 8 hours, and let dry over a crumpled paper towel to make them a little inperfect looking. Wrote the name of the beach on each and tied it on.
These are going to look great in my sunroom, which has a beachy look!
Stay tuned for more projects I've been working on!

On day 7 of our journey to the Caribbean, our cruise ship docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico. We decided to stay an extra day so we could see the sights of Old San Juan.
We stayed at Hilton Caribe which was an AMAZING hotel, and where the receipe for the Pina Collata was made. Have to say it was the BEST one I've ever had! I would love to go to go again, there was so much to see in San Juan!
Views of Old San Juan.
Streets of blue bricks.
