The Gift

These were given to me by Lori in celebration of Millstone's one year anniversary, aren't they pretty? Very simple and elegant. They are saying to me that spring has truly arrived. I put my wool out at the shop on top of the "bird house condo" and what the wind has not taken away the birds have. (I have noticed that the wind has taken away many price tags of our outdoor collection so I guess I will be re-doing that this week.) I find myself at this time of year with an intense wanderlust, the urge to travel and see spring as it awakens, to open the windows and let the fresh air in, to hang clothes on the line and smell that wonderful clean smell they will have, to dig in the earth and plant the bulbs and reap their beauty, I guess you could say that I am in awe of the re-birth of a season. I love all the seasons but for me spring is when we all come alive again and forget just how much snow we did receive. Our neighbors will come and gather in the yard and talk about the waist high snow removal and laugh...although we were not laughing when we were shoveling! We shall here the laughter of children playing in their yards and the wonderful(?) sound of the lawn mowers. Spring has sprung and we too shall come out from hibernation and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.

I am off to the home shop to finish up some eagles, sac lights and "whatnots", but first I think I will go and play outside with my puppies. jack..had a small seizure yesterday but she seems fine today, we are watching her closely!!!! And cartoon character...well, he is just Tinsley.

Have a meaningful and blessed day,
