March Madness...

Is typically associated with the NCCA Basketball Tournament games.  For me it's just maddening to think March is so busy and flying by.  Was First Friday almost three weeks ago?!  Oh, the story this tag tells...


Then we've had another birthday...seriously nine already?!


It's so much fun to spend time with a happy, creative "free spirit" filled with peace and love.  Note the bright socks...they're so she can see should the lights go out.  LOL

And while on the subject of "madness"...I refuse to let change get the best of me!  My thought was to redo the look of my blog...you know lighter and brighter...well, after writing this post, maybe it's a little too maddening.

What March Madness have you been up too?

Clandestine...

Jumping of the fence brings pussy willow branches into the home.  Not only are they a favorite, it's fun to see how quickly the furry little catkins appear once brought indoors.


A favorite branch along with a favorite sampler brings a little early spring to the mantle.  The "Sarah Whiteley Sampler" was published in 1985 by Creative Designs with a price tag of $3.50 on the cover.  Now when was the last time you saw that price on a cross stitch pattern?!  Spring, spring...can you tell I'm ready...

Are you?
