Where did yesterday go?



I'm late, I meant to post yesterday but just as I was getting used to was today!!

But I'm here now and yes..I have gardens on the brain!! Lol! I just love flowers and this is the season for so many pretty ones. I always find such a peaceful feeling wandering around in my garden..or anyone else's...checking what little gems have sneaked out since I last looked.So this week I have some little freebies inspired by flowers. On Friday I'll even have a CU freebie too!! Today's freebie is tulips..I just love them..and of course my husband is Dutch, so I thought I would start there. You can add to my Petals tomorrow , soon you'll have a little garden!!

Download Tulip Paper here 

(Sorry..I've corrected the zip file now)

I have one of those minds that collects useless trivia, not anything that is vital or relevant..just trivia!! So I thought I would share an item of trivia with you each day..I am so good to you..not!! Lol!!

OK, so here goes - Today's trivia is:

Did you know that in the 16th century mattresses were secured on the bed frame with ropes..when you pulled the ropes the mattress tightened giving you a nice firm bed. That's where the phrase "Goodnight, sleep tight" comes from.

Now I'll get serious again and show you something which isn't trivial. Jessica's layout is absolutely gorgeous...I love the strips she has used, the effect is really eye catching!! An other lovely page and what a cute photograph too, that foal is beautiful!!

How are these for brilliant? Kat has done some cute pages with Auntie Frogsut pictures of her her "Baby Girl"..this part of the kit from Chris is just made for these photos...that and Kat's talent makes for two great layouts!!!

Oh I love that about just got used to it being today....!
You want to talk about frogs, my daughters swim pool is surrounded by tree frogs (I think)They're light green, small & have the funny toes. Anyway, they serenade anyone in the evening when you try to get in, I heard it the other eve., "That's the frogs! LOUD"
Just wanted to share my frog story.

Thank you for the pretty tulip paper!

I really like the layout with the little foal.

Neat trivia - thanks for sharing. I didn't know how that saying came about, makes sense though.

Cool trivia! And I knew that one, too. My Grandma actually had two rope beds before they moved into a new house in 1974. I'm loving your trivia. Lots of fun to read!
