New Treasures and a Giveaway!!

What I've been working on.

Some outdoor for you.
Can you see what I see?

How about now?
Yes, The daffodils are already coming up.

And here is my little terracotta pig.
He is getting a little worse for wear,
but I just love him.

How cute is this face?! =0)

What I've been working on.
Go HERE for giveaway!


NEW SHOE......

(this is the penny pinchin' way to get a 'vintage' look.)

Red paper roses in white paper doilies.

I know the computer is great, but I still enjoy
just picking up the dictionary, or Bible, and thumbing through it.

Dried red roses from the miniature bouquet from my daughter.

I'm participating in all these wonderful special days!!
Thank you to all who host for us!!

How fun to see daffodils emerging from the ground! I noticed some in a neighbor's yard the other afternoon while walking my dog. These plants seem to come up earlier and earlier as time goes by. I hope you enjoy your pretty yellow flowers soon!

I do see the spring showing through the ground! Believe it or not, during the cold snap here in Texas we had iris blooming?

I like the baby shoe!

Snow no More for Outdoor Wednesday.

SueLovesCherries said...

I'm with you - I prefer the dictionary to the internet any day. And the Bible - there's no substitute for that ever!

I'm jealous about your green shoots, but I've got enough to keep me busy what with crafts, seed-starting, blogging, and all!

Joy said...

Love all your cute goodies you made and went over to join in on the contest. What fun! Have a great week!

Mary said...

Barbara Jean, I love what you were able to do with the baby shoe. Isn't it nice to see the beginning of daffodil season again? Have a great Outdoor Wednesday.

sissie said...

Ah, your little piggie is anxiously awaiting spring. Just look at that face.
I think the baby shoe is so adorable.
Spring will be here before we know it.
