Sunny Winter... Gentle Whispers...

Oh, it has been a "breath of fresh air" to see the sunshine around here. Tonight's glow created its magic against the living room wall.  How long since a bright sun set in Missouri?

One sure way to brighten the day... To set apart time to just play, rearrange, invite the newest little touches of upcoming spring.

Goodbye to the very last traces of the past. I made these sachets for Mom on the very day! We had to enjoy them just a couple days longer! Time now to put these away for another, milder winter.

A quick moment in the kitchen, a new little mosaic lamp, and a glimpse of our little red electric heater. Nothing like a little cozy in a drafty kitchen.

And then the beginning of soft green Irish happiness. I tucked the green and white hearts from the Christmas tree with these beautiful ornaments from Ireland.  My son's best friend lives in Dublin with his bride... These gifts and several more treasures found us for Christmas.

My grandmother's gold china cup, some light green salt and pepper shakers,  special cups and saucers, and a woven coverlet...

Welcome, these perfect days of late Winter.

What a sweet peek into your daily life. Love the hearts that you share but really love all the green that you are bringing in for Spring/March/St. Paddy's Day. Hope you have a wonderful SUN-FILLED weekend-xo Diana

NEW Background! Seasonal!

Did you make it? What a super wonderful job you did!!!

NO lines showing, where one pic ends and the next pic begins, in the grid!!!!! That is difficult to do!!!!

I have to trim and trim and trim my small pic, to eliminate darkness or etc., so the grid of the pic, seem to be a smooth big pic. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

Yeaaaaaa You!
