Hope of Spring

Pink Hyacinths, originally uploaded by ivoryblushroses.

Seeing these hyacinths bursting forth with life and beauty gives me such joy! Not only do they bring the hope that Spring will soon be here (even though it is snowing yet again outside!) but they smell heavenly and brighten my surroundings!

Bunny with Egg Nest

Here is another of my favorite Easter decorations, a twig nest with moss and porcelain eggs in my favorite soft muted colors! Seeing my Easter things around me also gives me hope of Spring!

Crochet Washcloth

This crocheted washcloth was inspired by one I saw on HERE on the White Country blog. I loved it and had to make my own! Spring cleaning, anyone?

Sing Pretty Birds

I have a delightful old book called, "A Year of Beautiful Thoughts ~ For Boys and Girls" by Jeanie A B Greenough, dated 1902. There is an entry for each day with a verse of scripture, a short essay and a poem. Charming to read! One of the entries inspired this 8"x8" collage of "inchies". Fun to put together with lots of scrapbooking techniques and supplies.

SING, PRETTY BIRDS

Sing, pretty birds, and build your nests,
The fields are green, the skies are clear:
Sing, pretty birds, and build your nests,
The world is glad to have you here.

Among the orchards and the groves,
While summer days are fair and long,
You brighten every tree and bush,
You fill the air with loving song.

At early dawn, your notes are heard
In happy greeting to the day;
Your twilight voices softly tell
When sunshine hours have passed away.

Sing, pretty birds, and build your nests,
The fields are green, the skies are clear;
Sing, pretty birds, and build your nests,
The world is glad to have you here.
