Is there anything more fun than having a package delivered to the door?

It had slipped my mind, so I was a bit surprised when the brown truck drove up with a package for me,
but as soon as I read the label I remembered.
A sweet friend had told me she was sending something and it had arrived!

Right on top was a sweet note.

In the keeping room is a cupboard with my collection of California Provincial by Metlox-Poppytrail.
Some pieces were given to us by my mother-in-law when we were first married and I fell in love with the pattern.  Roosters, right up my alley!

A Celebration & Happy Spring!

Happy first day of SPRING!

It's a bit cold and rainy here today on the first official day of spring, but that's alright.  The weather was perfect on Tuesday when our family gathered to celebrate a very special breast cancer survivor.

It was St. Patrick's Day 2012 when mother received her breast cancer diagnosis
and the family got together on her three year anniversary date to celebrate mom and how thankful we are for her.

Beauty in Ashes and Weeds Too

Friday, March 20, 2015



Warmer temps have me itching to be outdoors and in the garden.
Cutting plants back, applying fertilizer, and sewing seeds,
there is a lot to do in getting the garden ready for spring.

While tending to some garden chores I noticed a few patches of weeds in the grass.
Wild violets, with their tiny white and purple blooms, considered weeds when laced through the lawn.
Soon to be destroyed by the weed killer that was just been applied, I quickly gathered a few to bring indoors.
