I don't know how it is THURSDAY already!

We had a huge, and I mean huge dust storm on Sunday evening.  Our citrus trees lost all their dried leaves and there was 3, and I am not kidding, garbage cans full.  Since my hubby is working it has taken me  until today to get everything cleaned up as best I could.  My neighbor's daughter used a blower and finished it for both of us today.  What a blessing that was!  This has been a rough weather year, that is for sure.

 While most of my Spring decor is birds, I wanted to be sure to add the bees!!






I carefully put the vintage flower frogs in my apothecary jar and put a bee candle on the top.  The bee skep candle is in one of my cloches...I don't burn either so being in glass isn't a problem.

The weather yesterday and today is phenomenal.  So beautiful and perfect temps.  My hubby will be off on Saturday, so I have my list of Estate sales ready to go!  I am looking for a couple of items in particular....for some projects that are in my head!

I also have posted an update on my health on My Journey with Teal, so if you are interested, please visit.

Now I am curious and will be back to find out if you scored on any of these items you're looking for. The bee is so cute and I know what you mean about carefully putting things into the apothecary jar, especially heavy things.

I have never been in a dust storm..That would be horrible, glad the neighbor helped clean up. It has been a horrible winter, I know our friends in Minnesota have snow today...Yikkes!

We are really enjoying the break in the weather too. LOVE it. Our back yard is a disaster, but will have to wait till this weekend. :(

Bees are my signature for Karen's Monday Musings, and yours are adorable. For some reason, I especially can't resist the old fashioned bee skeps! Lovely, Ceekay!!
