Back to Nature

I am so excited about the warmer weather coming, and being able to get back into the garden!! It is the best therapy for any winter blues!! It's hard to believe that we had 9 inches of snow last week, and today it will reach 80 degrees~~ Daffodils are trying to pop out, new buds on the trees, and soon we will see the graceful butterflies dancing about the bright blooms~~

Butterfly Card Set

This photograph is my favorite, because I have ALWAYS loved butterflies!! They are so graceful as they fly from flower to flower~~ Check out KaHollys's blog (http://www.kaholly.blogspot.com/) and Etsy shop ~ http://www.kaholly.etsy.com/ ~for gorgeous photos and notecards.

They state, "KaHolly's is a joint effort by two sisters, Karen and Hollis. When we were growing up, our mom used to address Holly by first starting to say Karen's name, thus "K-Holly", (because she's the little sister). It still happens today because Karen's daughter's name is Kirsten".

Willa Necklace - Gold Filled and Emerald

I love the design of this gorgeous necklace!! The pebblecollection Etsy shop is an offering of handcrafted jewelry and accessories inspired by the little girl in each of us who once picked wildflowers and collected pretty stones and shells because they made her feel special. Well, she is all grown up and the stones are now faceted and the shells cut and polished but that feeling remains the same. http://www.thepebblecollection.etsy.com./ You may also view more on http://www.thepebblecollection.blogspot.com/

Old Fashioned Ribbon Bookmark - Beautiful pressed flower and leaf handmade paper

This "back to nature" bookmark makes me want to get my book and find a cozy spot outside to read... you may find these wonderful bookmarks at Deb's Etsy shop http://www.aweshop.etsy.com/. She states, "A.W.E. describes perfectly how I feel about my work; artistic, earthy items with a worldly flair and an environmental lean". See more at http://www.aweshop.blogspot.com/

Winter Weather ...

If you live in Richmond, Virginia, you may have forgotten what snow looks and feels like. If you have a child 3 years old or younger, he/she doesn't even know what snow is...

What really gets the kids disturbed is when it snows in Virginia Beach, Raliegh, Charlotte, and even Atlanta, Ga and not here.... I remember as a child being so excited to wake up and the ground was covered in this beautiful white blanket of snow.... and we would be Out of School!!! These poor kids today don't know that joy~~ I promise, there is a point to this... It is supposed to start snowing here tonight! Well, stay tuned for the update... My children, ages 7, 10, and 11 are all going to wear their pajamas inside out tonight (it is supposed to make it snow, you know?)
