A Dandy Dad Day!

Hi all.

I hope you all had a great Father's Day and made a Dad, or two, feel special. I spent Father's day with my Dad and enjoyed spending some quality father/daughter time with him. My sister and I bought my Dad a couple of small items but I also decided to make him a gift that thankfully turned out great!

I grow mint in my garden that is slowly, but surely, taking over so I have given starts of mint to my parents on a couple different occasions, but the starts never survived for one reason or another. So for Father's Day I dug up some nice, tall mint and placed it in a brightly colored green pot. Around the pot I used a white paint marker and wrote "When life gives your mint, make mojitos... Love, Sarah" I gave the gift to my dad and placed the colorful pot on their pool deck. I figured this way they could enjoy the smell of fresh mint and easily pick some for their chilled mojitos on a hot summer day. I will be sure to post a picture very soon because I just love bright, colorful pots set around a patio or pool. Bright orange, yellow or green flower pot can really give an area the extra splash of color it may need for the summer season.

For now I will leave you with some spaces that I adore.. enjoy!







I hope you all had a fantastic Father's Day and weekend!

xxoo,
Sarah
