Angela Rae Barribeau  Artist.

I can usually find pretty bouquets at Sam’s Club to purchase for my late daughter, Amanda’s resting place. Yesterday was her birthday, so I stopped by Sam’s - only to be discouraged by the selection. Everything looked sad and half droopy. I had decided to go with a rainbow color scheme, so I picked the best of 2 rainbow colored flowers bouquets and then another extra large mixed floral bouquet that had a lot of bright colors in it. When I got home, I took both bouquets apart, trimmed and reassembled the best I could in the colors I wanted. This is what was left over. Greens, whites, pinks and some deep burgundy flowers. Enjoying them this morning. #samsclub #flower #flowers #bouquet #bouquets #doyourbest #whydontibuyflowersmoreoften #missingamanda #love #grief #bigsighs

Thirty-two years ago...a tiny 5# 3 oz little girl arrived prematurely. We were so surprised by her appearance that we hadn't made up our minds about what her name would be! It took us about a day to finally decide that her name would be Amanda Nicole. The song "Amanda" by Boston and the fact that she was born near Christmas, were our inspiration! I could never completely put into words our life with her in our world. It would never do justice! She was with us for only a short twelve years, three months and eight days....and I would give anything....but I can't. So, I'm wishing my beautiful daughter, Amanda Nicole, a very, very Happy 32nd Birthday in Heaven! I imagine you having a huge party with all of our loved ones and friends! You would want a huge cake and ice-cream because we know you loved Dairy Queen. There would be a ton of music, dancing, singing, story-telling and maybe a little acting thrown in for good measure. We miss you every single day! We love you beyond measure! After 19+ years, we feel unbelievably blessed to have Arwen Amanda arrive to be part of our family! She is our little heaven sent gift to us! We love you, Amanda! XOXO, Mom #birthday #heaven #amandab #amanda #amandanicole #daughter #wemissyou #weloveyou #12 www.amandab.com

My best friend, Deb, and I went out to Dixon’s Deck the Halls today. Another best friend, Kendra of Kendra & Co was a vendor. I found a vintage looking metal sign that says North Pole on it in Kendra’s booth! I also won a beautiful fresh cut wreath from 1 of 2 drawings held!!! It’s beautiful on our front door!!! #dixonsapples @dixonsapples #kendraandco #kendrawestphal @kendrawestphal #deckthehalls #Christmas #decor #NorthPole #burlap #pinecones #country #love #cadott #cadottwi #cadottwisconsin #chippewacounty

When you built your dream house, you never imagined your boys would be over 6’ tall!!! Adding tiled wall to the wall above their showers! Good thing I went with a classic white octagon and dot tile 18 years ago! #tile #tiling #tallboys #tallboyproblems #diy #grout #shower #classic

Just created a handful of Christmas ornaments for a commissioned art job. Dried petals from a loved one’s funeral, embedded in an open resin bezel. #NeverForgotten #LovedOnes #Christmas #ornaments #IceResin #sari #silk #ribbon #flowerpetals #flower #petals @iceresin @susanlenartkazmer @ranger_ink @rangerink

Backyard cleanup - dumping flower pots, my 2 wash tubs on their stand, etc... goodbye summer! :( #mint #spearmint #gardengreens #flowers #washtub #washtubs #ilovevintage #galvanized #fall At least the sun is out.

Who else bought and used one of these kits for painting their walls? I did! #housebeautiful #spectacularwalls #twincolor

My husband noticed Hayley Williams is wearing the same skirt as my curated outfit on Two Sweet Birds?!!! www.twosweetbirds.com Go check it out! #fall #october #plaid #pretty #football #yall #hayleywilliams #paramore #cute #killer #outfits #love #pop #punk #music #fashion #fun

How cute is this?! "It's Football Y'All!" and everyone loves a little plaid skirt! I would wear the skirt with black leggings or thick tights and boots, but that's because I live in the frozen tundra of northern Wisconsin!!! :) This look is cute, too with Chucks!

FLY to twosweetbirds.com and find "Angela's Pick" for this cute curated outfit! Thank you Tammy for letting me pick this out! I LOVE IT!

And don't forget to go back to Monday's post to see the details of our first ever giveaway. My sister says the photograph of the purse does not do it justice!
