weekly winners

Hosted by Lotus, my favorites from this week:



From the uncasing ceremony last week
Loved the smoke in this one

some flags hanging in the entry to the building where Husband works


Look what is going in just down the road

The kids do flower arranging in the Practical Life area in their preschool classroom. This arrangement was made by a three year old!

As a former floral arranger (I hate the word florist) let me say that is fantastic work for a 3 year old!

Rebecca said...

I'm almost 33, and I couldn't have arranged those flowers that well.

Nice photos!

Janet said...

Love the floral arrangement...and container!

I was impressed. There is a photo wall in the entry way of the school. I was taking new shots to replace them with current students. This little girl was working so hard on her flowers. She picked out the little container. The flowers are in a small bundle on a table. She picked a few stems and the baby's breath. Then she had to snip them to fit them in the container. I just watched her the entire time!

the flowers are beautiful.

tulipmom said...

Wow, she snipped them too?! A litle Martha-in-the-making.

Loved your pictures as always.

Wow that three-year-old made quite a nice arrangement (and, good photo-op for you!)

Oh I love that flower shot. And starbucks? Woot woot, get the sprinkles on top! :)

Yep the flowers are my favourites.
No Starbucks for me, no anything near me.
Oh wait! There's a pub and down the road, another pub!

Jen said...

The one with all the smoke is my favorite. It's like I'm there. Kinda makes me feel like I need to cough. :)

The flowers are beautiful! It never ceases to amaze me what kids can do.

Kristi said...

Girl, I drive by that stinkin' sign sitting on that trailer every day and think..."OPEN, OPEN, OPEN!" Haven't they been building it for like six months? Seriously, Starbucks....we're being very patient girls.

I think there is a three year old out there with a serious future in floral arrangement!

I love the starbucks sign waiting to go up- they seem to pop up right overnight, you know?

That Starbucks sign made me laugh.

I'm impressed with your 3 year old's flower arranging skills! I know I wouldn't do as well.
