I think it's coming...maybe....

Spring! My daffodils are blooming all over the yard! But it's still been mostly grey and cold out. No matter, I still decorated the mantel as if it was here. It makes me feel cheery! A couple of items up there are from our world travels. A bird embroidery in a hoop from China. A pear shaped container made out of coconut wood from Thailand. Spring makes me think of warm weather and travel. Happy places and memories with people I love. Tulips are my favorite, but they die so quickly, I put fake ones up for most of the season. It still makes me happy!
But it's been too cold to play outside much. I found this careful lineup after I sent Hunter off to school this morning. He left his monster trucks carefully lined up on his bedroom floor this morning. Finding these little arrangements when he is gone warms my heart. I love seeing evidence of his little personality lingering around when I miss him throughout the day.

  1. Hey, thanks for your sweet words of encouragement! I'm jealous of all the flowers that are popping up at your house. I'm moving south!
