Pussywillows From Home


They tell me spring has fully sprung in New York...
...my favorite time of year.

I guess it's time to go home!

Packing cardboard boxes full of goodies, little thrifting treasures...
...odds and ends picked up here and there...to bring back north. 

Thank you for all your kind comments
 and well wishes for my family.
So much sharing...so much love...
We appreciate it.

What are you up to this week?
:)

I LOVE pussy willow Laura .... it always reminds me of my childhood. I remember picking branches of it on the way home from school. It really is so soft isn't it ?
Wishing you a safe journey home and happy times, unpacking all of your lovely flea market finds. XXXX

Hope you have a blessed week...I have you in my thoughts in my prayers!

Love the pussy willows. I wonder why no one grows them anymore?
You are in my thoughts and prayers

Laura, as you prepare to return to the 'north' it was hard to believe, as I read your post that your mom has been gone a year. Wow, how quickly time passes, tho' I am sure you think of her with each waking day. My thoughts are with you and be safe as you travel back from the south. It is beautiful here in Chicago. In the 80's yesterday.

My DH just picked a bouquet of pussy willows for me! I have black pussy willows as well as the lovely silvery grey. Skies are blue, birds are singing, welcome back to the northeast 52.

I love Pussy Willows. Easter without them in Europe... IMPOSSIBLE. Unfortunately I lost mine, but I am in the process to plant some new ones, thanks to you.

All my best xoxo

Those are so pretty. I don't even know if we have those here in Dallas. But we do have spring! The last precious days of cool breezes before the heat hits!

Hi Laura,
I'm so sorry to hear that your cousin passed. It's wonderful that you are surrounded by your love ones and spent some time with your Sister. The pussy willows are just beautiful this year.
Safe travels :)

Safe travels home, Laura. Pussy Willows say spring to me. I have a vase full that a friend gave me on my 60th birthday. They still look pretty 5 years later. '-)
Happy Spring! ~ Sarah
