Spring Has Sprung


If only in your dreams…

Perhaps where you live it is still some months away and you have seen so much ‘white’ that you may want a splash of COLOR.

Here are a few ways to perk up your mood:

  • If you are into gardening, check out the new seed catalogues to dream up your next garden plan for the upcoming season. I love this seed company, but I know there are many others.

  • Or.. buy yourself a bouquet of flowers for your home, to help you remember how beautiful and uplifting they are so you can still enjoy the remainder of the winter season. Why wait until Mother’s Day to enjoy the beauty of flowers!

  • Do you quilt? Then.. it may be the perfect time to quilt up a bouquet of flowers to bring springtime into your home, even if it doesn’t seem like it’s ever coming back.
