...................

.........hello my friends.......spring is SLOWLY making it's way here to southern Indiana...........I have started pulling weeds....thinking I can get ahead of the game.......actually when the grand-kids are here playing outside, it is the perfect time to pull weeds........the daffodils are blooming and they are my all time favorite spring flower.......really there isn't a flower I don't like......I love all colors, I don't care if it is an invasive plant, I find beauty in all of them......you can see nature plays a part in my indoor decorating too...birds nest's and flowers...






....I did pick up these mini daffodils at Lowes, love them and this little fern, well I think it is a fern.....also..getting ready to paint my vintage metal lawn chairs........hard to stay indoors......as soon as I finish this, I am making some coffee and heading outside.......till next time......smiles, Linda

....a few changes........

.......sometimes just a few changes are enough to get me through a stage of "I want to change everything!"...moving a few things around, boxing up, taking out of boxes....shopping the house.......I changed out a lighter color lamp for a darker one, which in turn made me want to add the darker crock, picture with the dark oval frame....etc.......also, where I use to have several crib and doll quilts on the wall, I now have just one large quilt in colors I love....makes a statement..........so here it is, for now........till next time.smiles, Linda

....and fresh eggs, well nothing better.........my love for chickens carries over into my house and yard.......to me they are a simple pleasure...till next time, smiles, Linda
