I’m so happy to introduce you to my blogging pal Breida of Breida with a B! Breida and I were introduced by Miss Mustard Seed a few months ago as we were all preparing for the Haven conference and I just can’t thank MMS enough for introducing me to this lovely lady!  When I first visited her site and saw the bumble bee I was intrigued (I’m mad for bumble bees!) then I got reading and you know how they say opposites attract?  Well this is a perfect case in point.  Breida is an avid {and clearly talented} gardener where as I, well, let’s just say… plants don’t always thrive under my care. I always start with great intentions. I buy plants every Spring but after a couple of weeks I tend to get caught up in my current projects and before I know it – boom – the poor plants are hanging limply in their pots. It’s all so sad! My crop this year is fairing a little better because my little one and I keep watering them every morning – hopefully I’m turning over a new leaf! (ha, ha!) Or I’m just really, really inspired by Breida’s garden and her enthusiasm!

Look at those chipper plants – climbing to the sky! Her blog is filled with practical ideas like how to build your own tomato cages, brew homemade chamomile tea, ways to reinvent the humble yard stick and paint with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – to name but a few popular projects of hers. Plus, how can you not love a gal who titles one recent post “I Am Not Cooler Than You…” seriously I love this lady! Her sparkling wit makes every post entertaining and her sincerity makes it relatable.

Happy Celebrating!

    Breida with a B sounds absolutely delightful. I can’t wait to stop by her ‘house’ and see what she’s been up to. What a thoughtful thing for you to do, Jennifer.
    Wishing you An Extraordinary Day!

    I’ve been following Breida since I saw her link on the Haven site. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet her at Haven, but I have enjoyed getting to know her through her blog and her FB page.

      Hi Jane! Oh, I’m sorry you didn’t get to meet Breida – I monopolized her at the conference :D Thank goodness we have our blogs and FB so at least we get to all “virtually” hang out! :D

    Oh Breida with a b.!! I met her through Miss Mustard Seed too – which is where I think I found you too! I just love Miss Breida – isn’t she the best! I had the privilege of making her camera strap cover for her – and I even got to design it too! So fun that you featured here here.
