Unique Vessels: Mustard Bucket

Last week I bought some French mustard that came in the cutest bucket. So of course, a flower arrangement in the bucket was a must. I picked some flowers and greens that I had available in the garden and made a sweet little French-inspired centerpiece. If you have a can, jar, or a bucket, you can always use it with some garden flowers to decorate a corner of your home (I used it for my breakfast room). Better yet, bring it to a friend! This is a super simple DIY that you can do in about 5 minutes. Give it a try!

Thoughts: Yellow Mustard Field

Happy Monday! I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. April is upon us and spring is in full bloom. Sometimes the most beautiful things can be right under your nose and all you have to do is take a moment from your busy life and actually look at your surroundings. Spring in California is a great time to do just that. Last week as I was driving my son and a couple of his classmates to Half Moon Bay for a 2nd grade field trip, I came across the most yellow and fantastic field of mustard. I immediately told myself that no matter how busy the next couple of weekends, I would make the time to bring the family back before it stopped blooming, and a few days ago, we did.

What are some things about spring that really move you?

SO. AMAZINGLY. YELLOW.

We even spotted a hawk flying nearby.

The kids had a lot of fun getting lost in the field and running around.
