Mail Inspiration

I took part in a little Inspirational Postcard Swap that my friend Natalea organized. What fun it is to receive a little inspiration in the mail each day. The photo above shows the postcards I sent out with inspirational quotes stamped on the back.

A Little Springtime!

I just couldn't wait any longer. I had to get my Easter decor out and start decorating. Spring is my favorite season of the year, with all the wonderful colors and the miracle of new plants sprouting up from the earth. It's especially appreciated here in the midwest after all the ice, snow and dreariness that we have during winter. So I set up this little Easter vignette on my dining room table to brighten things up around here. Hopefully my African violets in the basket will start to bloom again soon. Have you started decorating for Easter yet?
Happy Springtime!

Weekend Fun

This was a fun weekend ~ busy and spent with good friends. I went to the flea market on Saturday and picked up a few good finds. Here is just a sampling of some of the vintage lovelies I came home with.
Sweet little chairs :)
Bottles galore!
Seam binding and lace in pretty pastel colors for spring.
A lovely tea-stained French towel, religious medals and mitten clips.

And yet ANOTHER treasury!

So much fun to have my Rustic Eggs featured in yet another Etsy Treasury by A & B Originals shown here. The set of 5 eggs are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop here.

And here's a sneak-peek at a little something I've been working on this week. Can't reveal it in it's entirety yet because I don't want to ruin the surprise for the recipient.

Gotta run now as I'm headed over to the flea market this morning with a friend. Hope there's a lot of cool stuff waiting there for us!!! Have a great weekend everybody!

Sunny Side Up

"Rain, rain, go away ~ Come again some other day." If it's not snow, it's rain. I can't tell you how gloomy it looks outside. I guess I should look on the bright side and be happy that it's warm enough (41-degrees) to be rain and not sleet or snow. I wish it were warmer though and more importantly, sunny. It's interesting how much sunshine can effect my mood. It can be freezing cold outside, but if the sun is out it makes everything seem SO much better. My Norwegian grandmother used to sing "You Are My Sunshine" to me when I was little and it always put a smile on my face. Maybe there's some sort of connection.
