Finally it's Springtime

So delighted Spring has arrived! 

Spring flowers around our home...wished these bloomed through Autumn

Welcome Spring!

*************

"Hark, I hear a robin calling!
List, the wind is from the south!
And the orchard-bloom is falling
Sweet as kisses on the mouth.

In the dreamy vale of beeches
Fair and faint is woven mist,
And the river's orient reaches
Are the palest amethyst.

Every limpid brook is singing
Of the lure of April days;
Every piney glen is ringing
With the maddest roundelays.

Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills."
-  Lucy Maud Montgomery, Spring Song

Isaiah 53:5, Happy Easter

This Easter morning my email messages contained a message from Hobby Lobby titled Love Letters.

This is their message
What a beautiful message to share and to receive.
By His wounds and bloodshed we are healed.
Easter Blessings and Peace to you.

More Easter Swaps


My friend Suzanne and I recently swapped our Easter altered matchboxes.
Neither of us knew the other was creating a matchbox on a pedestal,
but we both did just that.

Today, I am sharing photos of the matchbox I created for Suzanne.
 Tomorrow I will be posting the matchbox Suzanne created for me.

My matchbox to Suzanne














Wishing you a sweet life.

Please drop by tomorrow to see Suzanne's darling matchbox to me.
