As Winter Gives Way To Spring



It's time for my hibernation to end. 
The snow has melted and nearly gone. 
The lawn needs raking to lift the matted leaves and I'm sure I will see purple Crocus in one of the flower beds. 

The birds sing louder now from the Hedgerow.
 A sweet couple is building a nest in the crook of our bedroom window.... just inside where we can't see them. Soon, I will hear baby chirps as I awake each morning. 


It has been a very long Winter for most of us, but for me, it was I time to close a chapter in my life.

The home that I grew up in as a teen, 
 made so much art work in, and started my Primitive Journey in. The home that I raised my girls and took care of my parents.....
 this home so full of memories, 
is now the home of another.

 It was a bittersweet process, but in true small town fashion, it went to the couple that it was supposed to. There are two little ones that bring laughter and magic back and it is once again a home. I have known the couple since they were very young and before they started their schooling. 


 I have enjoyed my hibernation. It is a time for me to recharge... to work and plan.
A wonderful time to spend with family and simply sleep in if I want to.

I'm ready though...


to open the windows,
 have coffee in the back yard
Smell the wet earth after a rain storm. 

I'm ready to get back to this wee business of mine, bringing friends to life.


I've enjoyed so many messages and emails, asking me to keep doing those Mousels and Natty Rats...

I have had a little fun with Mrs Munson...


And her partner in crime (and tea), 
Mrs. Dibble.

I have a goode Spring planned, and even a local show....
so  while you may not have seen much of me here,
I have been the Maker and Thread Pusher (as a dear colleague refers to what we do).

I've been the Pencil Pusher...
The Brush Mistress, and even tried my hand as a Paper Snipper.

It's never too quiet, no matter the season. After months of snow and cold....I am very ready for winter to give way to Spring.

I long for the hibernation to be over as well. LOL You make me long for it all that much more with your post. Longingly I look forward to the warmer days and warm mornings that I can sit out on the porch and take in mother nature with ease. Appreciating all she does all that much more. The stiffness of winter to wear off and the stretch of spring to arrive...sigh...your creations are so wonderful and bring me back to childhood memories of imaginative tales of wondrous lands and fantasy. Thank you. Your talent is a blessing.

Love your work...I also look forward to having my morning coffee outside. I look forward to working in the garden and potted and hanging patio plants. Enjoy Spring!
