I Adore Spring!!

I love a beautiful spring day when the early flowers are in bloom and the bushes and trees are all shouting Yay!! Here are a few photos of some of the beauty I've seen in my own yard in the last week! I'm including even a couple of other surprise beauties as well!!

This is a double daffodil! I love them! Wish I had a few more singles though!

This is a gorgeous purple hyacinth! To think I got these bulbs free!! So pretty!

These are the blooms of a flowering quince bush! They really brighten things up in the spring. But be careful of the thorns!! Quince has thorns!

This is my pride and joy!! They are the blooms on my weeping Cherry tree in my front yard! I love to see it bloom!!

And here we have a common tulip! Just south of here, Holland, MI, we have a tulip festival every year. They grow the most beautiful tulips you ever saw!

And here's my grandson Jonah, enjoying a smell of the tulip! Unfortunately, tulips don't have a smell!!

And last but certainly not least, here is my sweet little granddaughter Haley, enjoying the outdoors on this beautiful spring day!
Please enjoy the spring! It only happens once a year!!

Treasury East!!

I just discovered Treasury East! What fun! I had a little fun with some special finds lately and couldn't help but make treasuries based on poems! I love them and I hope you do too!

This one I call "The Owl And The Pusscat"
This one is called "I Think That I Shall Never See A Poem As Lovely As A Tree!"

Wuglyees.....A Unique And Beautiful Etsy Shop

Today I'm doing something different. I want to tell you about this dear friend of mine, Deb Malloy, who has a gorgeous shop and does the most beautiful crocheting! Maybe you've never seen her shop before, but I guarantee, it's worth the look! I'm including some wonderful samples of her work, and I encourage you to see what else she has to offer.

Here are just a few samples: The item above is a sample of the necklaces she has in her store!

Here is a sample of the beautiful brooches she has in her store! I love this one!!

These are a pair of her wonderful earrings!! She does great work, don't your think?

And who could forget the fact that anyone who crochets makes beautiful scarves!! This one is for women.

And as you can see, this one is for a man!! So many items to choose from!!

And what crochet shop would be complete without hats! I had a hard time picking one for this sample, but those slouch hats are so popular and this one is gorgeous!!

She also carries bracelets! She calls them "Hand Sandals!" So unique!! And so beautiful!

And what about accessories??? This is one beautiful pillow! And it's done in Angel Hair! It would be such a romantic addition to any room, don't you think?

And we can't leave out the fact that Deb is also a poet! I've seen excerpts from this book, and I guarantee you will not have dry eyes when you are done reading it! Below is the dedication page of this book! Even that is touching!:
