Happy Holidays From Me To You

Happy Holidays from A Spotted Pony!  I would like to thank each and every one of you for stopping by A Spotted Pony this year, and for joining in the fun!  I feel truly blessed to have found a little place to share our families projects with the world.  I cannot wait to see where the next year takes this little blog.  In the next year I hope that you will find things that you enjoy and that you can do in your own homes with your families.  I will be taking the rest off the year to spend some quiet quality time with my family and to enjoy the holiday season.  I hope you will stop back...

When I was in high school and college I was lucky enough work at two different flower shops.  I went from cutting flowers and cleaning up to arranging and planning...
