Ahhh Springtime...

OK, so that's stretching it, but on my trip to the copy shop today, I stopped by Michael's and picked up a bunch of silk forsythia to brighten my kitchen. I love this jar and think it looks good with yellow flowers, but I just couldn't wait until spring. You might notice that I placed some wayward blooms on the table for a more natural look.

This arrangement, combined with my gnome, makes for a breath of springtime. The artwork on my brick wall is by a local artist that I just love.

That's it for now, I'm off to the studio to see what I can make from copies of my atc faces. I am thinking pendants, but we'll see.

We'll talk soon. Take care.

That is a great idea to create a spring feeling. Hmmm I might have to try something like that. We need some color around here! Everything is so dry and dusty. We need some rain so we can have some spring! Can't wait to see what you come up with on your ATC faces.

The blooms on the table had me fooled! I was thinking, where in the heck does she live, that her forsythia is blooming? What a good idea. I feel a little warmer and more cheerful just looking at it!
