Happy Sunday, and welcome to Dirt Road Adventures – Hearts & Flowers, where we review all the exciting events behind the scenes, on the website, and the sources of inspiration I discovered online during the past week. This weekly recap ensures you don’t miss any of our adventures.
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are spending the weekend at our beach cottage and had a wonderful Thanksgiving fish fry and an oyster roast with our beach families.
If you were celebrating Thanksgiving, I hope you were able to spend your holiday with family and friends and that your weekend was filled with blessings.
We did a little shopping but didn’t bring home any significant treasures this trip.
Did you do much shopping for Black Friday and Small Shop Saturday?
Since I didn’t find many items while shopping in Wilmington, several packages will arrive next week. I’ll share some items with you in What’s In My Cart today.

In Case You Missed It
I hope you enjoy all the projects and decorating ideas I shared last week.
If you like saving your tin cans for unexpected upcycling projects, you will love today’s Tin Can Christmas Lambs project. The wooly lambs are very whimsical and easy to make. Don’t throw away your toilet paper rolls either, because I made a few lambs with those also. Both only take a few recycled materials for crafts, and you’ll be amazed at how cute they are.
