In like a lion...

Happy March! We're having another blast of winter here in Minnesota. It keeps snowing and snowing and snowing... My reflection in our front door As I was out shoveling this....the mailman delivered these wonderful spring goodies! Thanks for the smiles...and the hope that spring will come, someday:) This adorable little "twinkling toadstool" creation is by Laurie. Check out the article on her amazing collection in the Feb. issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine.This beautiful banner that truly put a spring in my step is by Joan.This gorgeous collage with a picture of her husbands grandmother is by Vickie.This wonderful card is by Heather over at Bluhm Studios.

If you need some spring inspiration, they're having a garden party over at the Curious Sofa blog and she explains how she made this amazing spring sign. LOVE it!!!

What a fun way to beat the winter blues.

You look so cute, all bundled up against the cold.

What lovely Spring-y creations :)

We had snow here last night and there's a teeny bit left on the ground, but I have high hopes for Spring coming soon.

Those are great! Here in WI we are getting sleet. I'm pretty much done with the winter thing. But better now than in May. You know that where we live it can happen.

Oh my oh my still snow, snow, snow I can imagine it must be hard to think spring when facing so much snow outside. But as I see many artists have done a wonderful job in sending your the spring to your home. Very inspiring pictures! I'm thinking spring too all the time, although outside here it is raining cats and dogs. I've just finished my first spring egg of the season and plan to do more each day now! I love your spring round robin book pages, they are so cheerful! I love your blog for always being inspiring! xox

Hi Kari
Thank you so much-your little cutie came in my post box today! It is lovely. Thanks so much!
It is so weird to think you are going into spring (although with all that snow around kinda hard to believe!) while here it is still hot hot summer. We start going into winter around April/May. Technically we are in Autumn now, but in SA there is really only hot or cold!
