Sharing From the Inside.........

........I took bunches of pictures outside in my yard this morning until my batteries ran down.  I am however, going to show a few that I just made inside.  My next post will be from my garden.

This is a nighttime and dark picture but, I like it.  I hope you can see good enough to enjoy it. I haven't shown this area after I changed it over for spring.  At least I think I haven't. Please forgive if I repeat!

Here is the shelf in detail.  I put the spring-like stems in the two vases and added some miniature tea things.


I found this metal envelope at Goodwill  and I bought two other items that day and the total was $3 and and some change.  You know this was a bargin!

I printed out an old-looking menu to stick in it and draped the old linen on it.

I know you have seen this as a recent gift I talked about but it did not have any of the decorations.

I put one of my real bird nests inside with an egg in it.  Added the dragonflies and the sprig of blackberries.

Doesn't it have an interesting top.

I printed out a new picture for this frame and made it look more springy.

Lots of reflection going on here.

I have been given the nicest gifts lately by family and friends. This petite vase came from a good friend who always shares a "spring fling" party with me and a few other friends.  This year the party had to be cancelled because of sickness but we still celebrated spring by exchanging gifts.

The bag is so pretty with its applied butterflies, I consider it part of the gift!

Isn't it so sweet!!

I picked a bouquet of herbs to put in it.

Do you grow herbs?  I love growing them - one of my favorite plant groups.  Can you identify all of them?  There is parsley, dill, rosemary and thyme. Also arugula blossoms and onion chives. The purple blossom is on the rosemary and do you see the tiny flowers on the thyme?

What a nice surprise came in the mail for me today!  A thank you card and this Michaels gift card.  It is from my great-niece and her boyfriend. They spent some time here with me recently.


I can hardly wait to go spend it!  You see I have my purse ready to go!



  1. I'm going to have to go to Goodwill with you some time. You find the neatest things there!

  2. Love the glow from the lamp in that first shot!
