:: out with BROWN...in with GREEN

Hello sweet friends, it's been quite awhile, but I've finally made it back. Well, this winter is almost over, and I can finally see the sunshine at the end of the tunnel. Yesterday it was just beautiful, and a balmy 77 degrees...short sleeves and skirts were the order of the day....woo hoo.  I wish I had been able to get out and get some work done around my house, but I had a fun baby shower instead, and I even got my hands on a little bundle for a good ol' baby fix.




Speaking of new life...my hydrangeas are already sending out there leaves, and I've spent this morning snapping off all of the old blooms in readiness for all the lovely that is to come. I ended up with a whole wheelbarrow full of dried hydrangea blooms.




Here's to OUT WITH THE BROWN...

and IN WITH THE GREEN....YIPPEE!



The lovely leaves of my favorite tree are the first to appear. It happens so quickly...one day a peek, and the next it's covered...I'm so happy it's back, I've missed it so.




Here's my favorite hangout spot, but as you can see, there's a lot of cleanup to do to get it looking like a relaxing haven. I did manage to hop in for a little while yesterday and enjoy the wonderful sunshine with my fur babies, but it was oh so short.




Pretty soon it will look like this again....and I'm sooooo ready.




And my little standard dapple tree will go from this.....




to this.............look at all that gorgeous green.




So, can anyone guess what my favorite color is?????




That's right.......GREEN.


I hope you all are having a wonderful Monday wherever you are, and here's hoping the green shows up wherever you are very soon. 


Oh my gosh, I just realized this is my 200th post....  Thanks to all of you who read along, and make this blog a fun place to hang out. Love to you all.

:: nature inspired



Happy Weekend Everyone!

Woo Hoo, I can't believe how quickly this week has flown by.

I did a major house cleaning yesterday, 

and I finally added my seashells and vintage bottles to my windowsill in my bath.

Here are a few photos of those natural beauties...

I just love them.





I've come to realize that the things that inspire me most are from NATURE.

{ GOD'S CREATIONS }

Be it a stick, a pinecone, a sea shell whatever it is

 if it's been collected from this earth it is truly beautiful to me.





Not to say that man made things can't be lovely too,

for instance, I love this collection of vintage glass bottles.

I am inspired by their beauty, shape and uniqueness.







Now when I get the chance to take a nice long bubble bath, 

I have something soothing and relaxing to look at.


I hope you guys all have a wonderful weekend.

RELAX & ENJOY

{ I Am New }



I feel one way...

and HE tells me how it really is...





I just have to share this song...

it is incredibly powerful

and it speaks directly to me.


I am always amazed by God's Grace & Love for me,

even when I feel so unworthy he lifts me up.


"He doesn't see me the way that I do"

:: ready for spring


I don't know about you, but I am sooooo ready for spring.

I need to see some green and soon.

I was looking through my photos of my flowers and gardens,

and it got me really excited to see all of my babies pop up...

now spring just can't come soon enough for me.


We've been thinking of downsizing our home

and making a move, and I have to say when I saw all the pictures

of my gardens and plants and all the hard work I've put in

It really makes me reconsider.


Ideally we would move to a smaller home with 

much more land and hopefully some built in landscaping ie: trees.

This is something my children and I long for.

I would love to have some wooded acreage to get out and explore.

I also really want to be able to have some more animals,

chickens and maybe some goats, and in my dreams a horse or two.

I know, I'm probably just dreaming, but I'm praying about it,

and I know that the Lord will put us where he wants us to be 

when the time is right.


I've really been having a hard time getting here lately.

Since my spiritual reawakening, blogging just hasn't seemed as important.

Slowly, I think I'll come up with a good balance 

that I can feel comfortable with.

So forgive my absence, and for my lack of communication.

I truly appreciate each and every one of you who visits,

and I always look forward to your sweet comments.


Happy Friday!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
