Remember the Daffodils that I told you were crushed to the ground by our snow of last week? Lo and behold, they popped right back up as soon as the snow melted.
I snapped this photo a bit ago and then promptly picked a bouquet of my daffs.
And I noticed that the Periwinkle ground cover was in bloom!
I hope that these darlings will show how happy they are to be brought into the warm farmhouse and open up and show their bright yellow faces soon.
I got this little vintage Devon Violet perfume bottle a few years ago and I added it to my St. Patrick's table display. We have seas of wild Violets in the farm yard - they are white, lavender and purple colored. They are holding off a bit until the weather warms and then I will pick a big handful to bring into the house, they smell divine.
I try to add one thing to my seasonal displays each year and this little treasure just arrived in time for me to fill with daffodils and put on the table. It's Belleek porcelain and was handcrafted in Ireland. It's such fine china that you can see your hand through it as you hold it up to the light. *love*
I added this to my sewing box, too. It's from Sajou, Paris and the glass tops are made in Murano, Italy. :-D They come in many different labels, but this one of a dog and cat on red tufted stools, the cat rolling a ball of yarn while the dog holds the skein reminded me of Dayle and I as he hold my yarn for me as I wind away. :-)
The kids are taking the boys to a water park for the weekend. I've just suggested they make sure and take some photos. :-) I'm going swimming today and am looking forward to a quiet weekend of crocheting and resting up from a busy week. What are your plans for the weekend? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
