SPRING IN MY STEP...

"For, lo, the winter is passed, the rain is over and gone;
The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of the birds is come..."

-Song of Solomon 2:11-12-
Today, there was a new spring in my step...

For the winter has indeed passed...

The rains of last week are over and gone, flowers are appearing on the earth...

The singing of the birds is come...

This morning I heard the call to arise and explore the world beyond my door. The first blush of spring is arriving here at the Quill and its sweet song puts a new spring in my step. I felt compelled to gather a few blossoms from the Hawthorne trees...

And who could resist jonquils like these?

What's this among the plants? A wee Butterfly Garden Fairy Cupcake Pick dance!

These first fruits of spring called out for an extra ordinary way to put them on display. Flea market frames...

And chubby little china booted legs...

Dance across the studio walls...

To the tune of Spring Song...

A graceful and grown up sister perches on the old window pane...

While her twin practices her floating butterfly ballet amid sparkle and shine...

These happy accents of spring grace my creative space, bestowing fragrant beauty and blessings.

Praying grace, fragrant beauty, and blessings are yours today!

Blessings,

Miss Sandy

So cute! Those little legs made me smile! Sweet idea, Sandy! A little touch of humor...who'd have thought they could hold flowers.

Happy Spring!

I love the "spring in my step" collage.

I am feeling wonderfully refreshed by the warmth and colors of spring as well.
