Tuesday ~ Cactus Garden

My Ruby Tuesday is the beautiful flower surrounded by thorns. Life is like that some days, some people are flowers and others are thorny. I am a lot of both. As I've aged, I'm trying to create nicer days and sweeter times. It is no longer important to be "right" and fight the thorny fight. I am finding a balance between being a beautiful hearted woman and strong confident woman. I guess we need a mix of both. Today I embrace my inner beauty and celebrate my outer strength. Thank you Lord Jesus for showing me the way.

My Nifty Trifty has to be cactus gardens because they are inexpensive. I do not have a green-thumb at all, but I can sure sustain a cactus plant, so for that I "Toot my own Horn". I love the southwest colors of red and green and love they cost less than having to replace flowers. I have to be Talented, especially on my budget, so take any Trash to Treasures and make yourself a cactus garden. You can use an old pail, a broken clay pot, or old deep cake pan. My Sew Cute is my life. I am going to finish some aprons tonight. I truly enjoy sewing because it relaxes me and allows me to be creative. God is so wonderful in giving us oasis in our life.
