catching up

I guess I have ignored my blog the last few weeks.
In case you were wondering what I've been up to,
 I thought I'd show you:)

Lately, I have been...
making wishes on dandelions
watching the trees bloom
not wanting the miss a minute of golden afternoon light
wearing my new red garden boots 
admiring morning light and interesting shadows
trying to exercise more
hanging out with my little furry friend
watching the clover take over
patiently waiting on fragrant wisteria to cover the trellis
refurbishing a desk for ARTitude!
walking on a path of pink petals
I was also able to spend some time with my parents and my grandfather.
What a sweet time it was with all of them.

Some of the photos above are on my instagram.
Would love for you to follow along.

Wishing you all a happy weekend!

lately in my garden

My garden is exploding with the most beautiful colors.  
 I love walking around every morning
 to see what new plant is peeking through the ground.  
Each day is a new surprise!
The hostas are barely peeking through, and
 I sure do love that purple and green color combination.
The rosemary has little purple blooms, and looks just lovely in morning light.
Purple phlox...one of my favorites:)
The clover is taking over:)
But it's so pretty!
Little leaves on trees are so delicate right now.
What's blooming in your garden?
Would love to hear from you!

a cheerful breakfast

We have had some cold and rainy weather this week.
But, we finally have sun today!  It feels like spring outside:)

Wanted to show you my frugal find for the week...
I found these vintage placemats at the thrift store.
(4 for $2)!

They are so cute and springy and just perfect for making breakfast a little more cheerful.
I peeked at the weather for the next week and it looks great.
I'm so ready.  My garden is waiting. I'm ready to plant!


 The placemats are reversible.
Mushrooms on one side.
Apples on the other...LOVE
And they look great with a little daffodil from the yard.
  Happy Weekend!
Wishing you a cheerful one...just like these little placemats!
