hello there!

Thank you ever so very much for stopping by my blog and leaving me such a nice comment today!
Ive just enjoyed looking through yours, the pictures are very nostalgic and take me right back to childhood!
Spring is slow to arrive here, although there are peeks of it here and there. This year we would like to grow more veggies and salady bits in our garden, as well as plant more wild flowers to encourage the bees to visit!

Sending love to you from the UK

Hi Pat, I am so excited for spring this year. So many projects I would love to get completed. We have plans to "shabby cottage chic" my kitchen. I have chosen a very soft pink for the walls, and antique white with an aging treatment on my cabinets,and mounted in the center of each cabinet door there with be a framed print of vintage pink roses. We have collected many of the antique crystal/glass doorknobs and those will be my kitchen cabinet knobs. We have also acquired some old barn wood that will be whitewashed and then laid down as my countertops with heavy coats of lacquer on top to protect the wood.I saw this done on a home improvement show and it was beautiful! Hoping to get a new farmhouse styled sink as well. New hard wood flooring to top it all off!
I have this vision of it my head and can hardly wait until it is completed. I just know it will be beautiful.
Outdoors will be fun too this flowers and new flower beds. I plant something new every year. Annuals and perennials all around. We have started a brick walkway that leads from the house to the shed, and want to continue it out to the firepit. We want to make a big circle of the bricks around the firepit and have seating around that as well. Along the sides of the brick pathway I want to plant all sorts of perennials. Delphiniums, floxglove, and more of my favorites like bleeding hearts and lily of the valley. It will be lovely!
These are just a few of many reasons I am so looking forward to springtime and the warmer weather it brings. Just to open up the windows and let the breezes blow through the house will be wonderful even if all the other projects don't get completed!
Hugs from me to you my sweet friend! Blessings, Julie

God has blessed me with a young mind and hands - plus - new ideas constantly.....I am 79, but that does not stop me from anything I choose to do.....Well within reason - I don't run marathons or climb mountains..ha ha.

Hi Pat!

What a sweet fabric block! I just want to be able to go outside in warm weather and walk the dogs. Can't wait to see the daffodils and tulips we plant each year. Also the jack-in-the-pulpits and trillium along the paths in the State Park next to us. We don't have any special projects yet, just planting flower seeds and buying annuals for all the hanging flower pots. THINK SPRING!!!!!!!

Lots of Love and Hugs!!! Keep Creating!!!! So glad I found you!!!!! Rebecca

Hi Pat,
How are you and your sweet little doggie? I sent you an email with the new addition to my house....little Chewy. You will smile when you see him for sure. I am anxious for spring to arrive so that I can watch him romp around outside a bit more. Too cold here in Idaho with snow and frost. I love all your new creations as always. You are a true artist that brings a sweet and happy feeling to us all when we look at the things we have purchased from you.
Have a great day friend filled with Blessings, Love, Jonnie

Hi Pat!
Greetings from the cold country Canada. Here is Southern Ontario we just got hit again with another storm.
So what do I want to do in the spring? I want to find a nice sunny spot that is sheltered from the wind and sit and read a good book, then listen to the birds and maybe just maybe rake the back yard before I take a little snooze in the sunshine. I need to rest up from all our snow shovelling. LOL!
Have a great week Pat.
PS If I am eligible please enter me in your draw if not that's ok too!

Spring must be around the corner! This Spring I want to paint my front door plum. I cannot wait to put up fresh flowers in my wrought iron carriage near my door and welcome Spring!
Thanks for creating such fun.
