Whitney Caroline Designs

If you have children, most likely they are out of school for the summer……..if you live where I live, then they have another week of school.  UGH!  So it really doesn’t seem like my Summer has started………but it really has.  I mean, the 4th of July is just around the corner.  I love 4th of July decorations… Love 4th of July BBQs, Love 4th of July Parades and celebrations……….but I HATE fireworks!  Not only am I thinking how toxic all that smoke is, but it’s loud…..and dangerous.  I can’t wait until Washington State jumps on the same band wagon as most states and STOPS the insanity of legal big gun fireworks……….but I’m getting of the subject aren’t I? 

Decorations.  Love them.  I was visiting Whitney Caroline Designs and she has the cutest tutorial for a ribbon topiary.  Tutorial and Topiary all in the same sentence is almost more than my bladder can stand.

This looks do-able…… doesn’t look like your fingers are going to ache…….like that silly gum drop topiary I did a couple of years ago……..I wish someone would have told me to use a thimble. 

While at her site, she has some really cute ideas for gifts.  I’m dying over the market basket…..and lots of Monogram gifts.  I love a monogram………..almost as much as topiaries…….well and pears……love me some pears…….and artichokes……..oh and pineapples…….She has desktop downloads for FREE!  Like this pineapple one…….gotta have it!yhst-70059553526816_2057_43326893

Off you go……she is super sweet…..and cute too…don’t forget to leave her a comment……………..or you never know, I may go on strike.  :)

I absolutely love this idea!! I'm going to a 4th of July party where the host has everything, but I bet they don't have one of these. Thanks!

With a name like Whitney Caroline, she would just have to be sweet and cute, wouldn't she? She has a greate site and shop, and I love that she indulges us all in polka dots and monograms!
