Spring INSIDE At Least . . .

 Living in the Midwest means that even if the CALENDAR says spring is here . . . you know that doesn't meant it feels or looks like spring OUTSIDE.
It means that you can be wearing flip flops and filling yard bags one day . . . and the next, both are buried in snow.

Living in the Midwest means you often have to CREATE your own spring so here's my little attempt to do that.

Nothing says "spring" like bunnies and flowers . . .

. . . or nests

I treasure this one -- my daughters found this a few years ago while they were out walking the dog.  It's SO delicate and finely woven and only measures a few inches across.  That's a real Robin's egg that I found last year in the woods.  I didn't know if it would eventually smell . . . it didn't so it's the perfect touch for my little nest.

Many of these elements are rotated in and out at different times of the year, including this ornate frame.  I just swap out the quotes/verses.

No matter what the weather . . . I'm reminded that Jesus is the Creator and Orchestrator of the seasons and the source of eternal life!


  1. I have another blog friend living in the Midwest, and it's cold there also, but the snow is always beautiful to me, as I live in California and don't get to see it much unless we go higher up in the mountains. I have been browsing through your posts, and you have such a lovely blog with sweet words. We would love it if you would follow us on google friend connect, and I would certainly follow you as well. It's nice to meet new friends from different states.

    Have a pleasant weekend, Lauren.


  2. oh, by the way, I love your title......wonderfully made. :~) I think that's what caught my eye first.
