Little Joys!

Ritva choose lovely rich colors for her round robin blocks. They remind me of wonderful old tapestries and "old master" floral paintings. It was a joy to work on and I hope that Ritva likes what I've done!

Spring Vignette
With spring coming and the snow finally melting, the little old shelf has been updated with a spring theme The expression on the bunny's face makes me smile every time I see it!

Leafy Ball
At Michael's, I found this leafy green ornament in their spring decor.

Too much Cute!
One of my favorite blogs, Moline (Germany)(also see her Flickr photos), often features these little Shleich animals in sweet vignettes. How delighted I was to find that I could order them online from Agape Bears! Such sweet little critters! Opening the box made me feel like a little girl again!

Sheep on the shelf
I also ordered a family of sheep. Such silly little things to get excited over, but they do make my heart sing!

p.s. If you look back through the blog, you may notice that all the old comments have disappeared. The comment service that I had been using was discontinued and I felt that the replacement service had some privacy issues, so I have returned to Blogger's default comments for the time being. I did archive the old comments and hope to restore them when they come up with a simple way to do so!

Hello from Michigan.

After my awful day yesterday, It was a joy reading your blog today.It truly picked up my spirits. It has been a wee while. I am sorry about your slip on the ice. How awful for you. I hope you are feeling better now. Your wee pastel beaded heart is truly beautiful. A work of art, indeed. I also think your English Cottage Garden sketches and water color painting is truly beautiful. Your are a true artist. Hugs Judy
