A Nest On My Finger

Look at what I was surprised with when I opened my door!

Sally's ring 002
My sweet and very talented neighbour made this for me!  A hand wrapped wire birds nest ring with the prettiest little blue pearl eggs. A perfect symbol of springtime.

Sally creates a beautiful color pallet with her handcrafted Jewelry. She uses all sorts of gem stones in her work (most I have never even heard of before), while her talented husband fires his own glass lampwork beads. What a dream team! Please take a look at their shop, you will not be disappointed.

Garden Mushrooms

I am in love with these metal mushrooms we found at the garden store this week.

 Misc 143 

   I want 100 more so I can put them everywhere!
Right now they are providing a little protection to the poor Himalayan Blue Poppies that seem to get stepped on every spring. You can just barely see their little green fuzzy leaves coming up through the tan grassy "poof".

The Sun Has Arrived!

 I have been neglecting things around here but I just can't help it! The sun is shining and the birds are chirping, there is bright green grass sprouting and we even have wee buds on our trees. Yes, very late for "lower 48" standards, but it's here none the less and I'll take it!

All I have been wanting to do is sit outside or by an open window and soak it all in. After all, it seemed this year spring would never come. I even started reading the book that I had put down last fall (like I have time with the Forest Fair coming up), it is all so relaxing.  Dexter has also been enjoying the sun. Here he is working on his tan.

We will be back to work soon...promise.
