Buena Pasqua! Happy Easter!

The Easter holidays have arrived and folks are on the road heading to visit family. Many are taking a break along the Gulf Coast in our beach towns. The traffic heading east is multiplying as I write this! One of my favorite memories from childhood was shopping for a new dress for Sunday. I grew up in an era where little girls wore Mary Jane's, gloves and carried small purses. I felt so "grown up" and beautiful when we headed off to church.

One year, my sister Mary, bought me two beautiful dresses for Easter. She and I went shopping together and I remember it being one of the best days of my young life. I was probably around 8 or 9 years old. One was a pale yellow linen dress with a matching coat and pearl buttons. The other one was lavender colored drop-waisted frock with a pleated skirt. Mary bought me a strand of pearls to wear with it.

She and I talked about this memory a few months ago. She absolutely loved giving me such a special day. She was newly graduated from college and working at her first corporate job. It was so much fun for her to have the ability to afford to spoil her little sister.

It is true, that some of the best times are when we do unexpected things for people we love. Actually the biggest gift we can give others is to learn to love everyone. I know that is a tall order, especially when folks are rude and thoughtless at times. In this season of re-birth, wouldn't it be wonderful to find a way to love everyone that crosses your path? Happiest of Easters to all of you and in Italy they say Buena Pasqua!

What's New on YouTube?

We've been tied up with some business projects and have not released any new videos this month. We have a list of requests and promise to get to those as soon as possible! Meanwhile I want to share a couple of YouTube channels that I have learned so much from.

Spring Cleaning got you down? Are you ready to get rid of toxic chemicals in your home? Melissa Maker and her hubby, Chad are ready to make cleaning fun. Well maybe not fun, but efficient. She admits that she despises cleaning however it is a needed part of life. Her mission has been to find the best solutions for keeping your space tidy. I have been mixing my own cleaning products for at least 6 months and my home smells wonderful. Click here to visit her YouTube channel.

This channel features husband & wife team, Jerry & Jenny, owners of Creekside Nursery in Charlotte, NC. Since they are in a similar climate zone as the Gulf Coast, their gardening advice works for me! I am sharing this one, especially for my sister, Mary. She called me the other morning asking about some house plants. She wants to add some to her interior and knows that I've always had thriving plants. I sent her a couple of links to check out including this one.


Scenes from my Space!

The last time I counted, I had at least 20 houseplants! I've got a "monster" Monstera growing in my dining room right now...really it is totally taking over!!! I attribute my success to a momma who had a green thumb and all those YouTube pro's that I follow.

Plant tips: Rotate your plants every time you water them! Water them in a circular motion around the root ball! Be willing to move them around the house until you find their preferences. This plant is loving the Southeastern sun and is thriving. Also the orchid is finally shooting out a stem to bloom...first time in years! I finally found the right place for it!

Monstera - my monster plant!


Have a wonderful holiday time with family and friends! ~ Charlsie
