The winter has been cold and grey and soppy. There has been snow, ice, sleet, hail, freezing temperatures and endless drops of rain. There were days when the sky seemed so heavy and dark, that I could hardly breathe. My chest felt heavy and I longed for spring deeply and with great melancholy.

The cute granny napkin is so darling. Plus, I like when there is a little black in the work. You do not usually see much black, so it is a treat to me. Two thumbtacks and Voila! Instant, handmade art for spring. The tulips are coming! The tulips are coming!

I walk about the neighborhood and can't help but wonder at the work of the trees. All winter, gathering their resources, anticipating spring and summer and autumn and the work ahead of them. I imagine it must be very difficult to strive ever upward, the diligence it must take to push out those first few tender green buds from their bony, wooden fingers...Along the Williamette River, a garland of pink and white blossoms twinkle mid-day. Oh, yes, my friends, Spring Is Springing!

Lots of thrifting in these parts. The Father, Son and Holy Ghost have come to live with us. Also, found these cute iron chairs. I put new fabric on one, I am going to put oilcloth on the other two for outside. You know, for when it stops raining...
