About Me

My photo
Deep South, United States
First I am a mother of two sons, Chad 35 and Ryan 32. Through these beautiful sons, I have been blessed with two beautiful daughter-in-laws, Kelli and Erin. As a result of these beautiful wives comes three beautiful grands, Connor first and the only one for fives years. Then, Kelli and Chad blessed me with another beautiful grandson, Cooper, who is now three. Ryan and Erin blessed me with my first granddaughter, Presley, and now Presley has brother, Harper, who is 2. My blog is really all about family. The reason I chose Magnolia Memories as my blog title is I am from Mississippi! I love Magnolia's. Memories is something that I make everyday. I still have my mother who will be 89 on her birthday in April. My life is centered around my beautiful family. Life is GOOD!

What To Do With Flower Seeds Packets

Print any of the vintage flowers (but particularly the vintage flower cards or seed packets) and use them on the front of greeting cards
Cover an Altoids tin with one or more illustrations and use the tin to hold a gift card

Print several of the illustrations at smaller sizes for use on homemade gift tags
Decoupage a box or other object you buy at the craft store

I came by last night & typed this long comment, but b/c I'm "borrowing" wi-fi right now, I lost it while when I hit post b/c my signal went down. I saw your comment over at Bo's (Blinks & Winks) a/b you might give up blogging. Bo helped me alot. I would suggest you participate in Tablescape Tuesdays, Blue Mondays, Pink Saturdays...stuff like that to get your readership up. You've had a lot of people look at your blog. You may want to add the ability to "follow" at the top of your blog. When I first started, Bo suggested I move it to the top of mine. It makes it easier than for readers to have to copy your http. Just a suggestion. I hope you don't give up! Have a happy New Year!

What great ideas! I have some old seed packets from my inlaws who have long passed away. I'll have to keep this in mind.
Thanks for stopping by to see me and for your kind compliments!
