Violets To Greet You


I hope you enjoyed my sweet violets.
Clearly, I like playing outside and taking photographs
 more than cleaning, sorting and organizing inside.

 Everybody needs a break, right?

The weather has been so lovely the last few days...
...I just might have to flea a little.
...just saying...

Spring Promises

As our lilacs promise to fully bloom within the week...
... our hope is that this Spring will bring a renewal
 of faith and trust in all that is good and true.

Our jonquils and daffodils
 raise their sunny faces to the morning sun.

The colors of early Spring...

The weather is warming up... finally...
 and our dogwoods and flowering trees will be in full bloom soon.

I can't help but smile looking up at these frothy pink blossoms!
...a time of renewal, promise of all that is beautiful 
and hope for a better future.

We needed Spring.
Feeling sooo grateful that she is finally here!

Prayers for Boston

The ongoing events in the Boston area are frightening and so sad.
It is hard to think of much else...
...trying to focus on the many good deeds,
 the kindness and compassion
 of the overwhelming majority of people there
 and everywhere

This is the year...I mean it!

Hey, thanks for stopping by!
Hope YOU are well.

Now that I am back home...

...the beautiful spring weather has me
watching for and enjoying the first flowers in the garden...

...sneezing at the tree pollen in the air and the dust in my house...
...and most importantly...focused on cleaning out!

 I know...
you are all thinking...
cleaning out?
"she says that every year...but never follows through."

Well, this is the year!
I truly am focused and have both a plan of attack
 and a time frame for the work to get done.

I am here to say that within the next month...
...I plan to move mountains...
...mountains of stuff...
out. the. door.

 I will check in and let you know my progress.
Wish me luck! 

P. S. I took my Etsy shop out of vacation mode
and will begin adding to it as I uncover things and clean out.
