Come on Spring!

I love my little spring vignette, (E for Miss Em's March birthday), but the kite, well, the wind and the cold...thank you I've had enough I've enjoyed your expression of nature, but it's time to move on...

I've got spray painting to do...LOTS of spray painting, and brush painting, and yard cleaning...sigh.  The weather is just NOT cooperating with my plans!  (Hmmm, I wonder if that's where "I know the plan I have for you" comes in? (Jeremiah 29:11)

It's not like I don't have PLENTY of projects indoors...I made curtains for the sun room this weekend (pictures soon), made a pillow and started on another pillow, and still want to stencil a small hallway and make spring curtains for my living room, so maybe one more week of cold wouldn't be SO bad. 
And HEY, if you're stuck inside too, check out my friend Josie's blog and see how to make these:

  1. JOY! i love your blog! i want to see more of your house! can't wait to see what you've been working on!

  2. p.s. where did you get those adorable cards??

  3. Thanks Jess! I got them on Etsy. Just search Vintage and flash cards :)

  4. I'm wondering what the little stands are that are holding the "E" and the kite cards? So cute!

  5. Maggie, those are called "frogs" or "floral frogs". They are vintage and used originally to stand up flowers in arrangements. I have about 5 of them and I use them all over my house to hold pics, etc. I found mine on, where else?, ETSY!
