Happy St. Patrick's Day

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way-
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

Happy St. Patrick's Day~

In a few hours, the corned beef will be simmering on the stove. Eventually the cabbage will be added to the pot and the Irish Soda Bread will be in the oven. It's become a tradition in our home and one that I look forward to every year.
Until next time.....

Spring Ahead

If you haven't already heard it and done so (and I don't know how that could be possible) today is the day that most of us move our clocks ahead one hour. It's hard to imagine that winter is just about gone! Reminds me of that song........who knows where the time goes...........

I didn't need the TV, the radio or a person in real life or online to tell me that Spring is just around the corner and it's time to move the clocks up. Our mockingbirds took care of that. They started singing! I love our mockingbirds and love to hear them chatter away. They're late this year though. They usually start singing sometimes around Valentine's Day. Guess I'm not the only one that was surprised by how quickly winter flew by.
Before long, our birds will be paired up, building nests and tending their young. And Althea will be one unhappy camper because she'll have to remain inside unless one of us can go out with her. Until next time.....

Stop and Smell the Flowers

It's in the 70's today, here in middle Tennessee. I've been outside weeding my flower beds. My mind wanders when I garden. It's the perfect time to dream up new jewelry designs and to compose blog posts in my head. You'd be surprised how many of my blog posts are born while I'm pushing my lawn mower or tilling the garden.

My miniature daffodils are starting to bloom. It's amazing how beautiful one clump of flowers look this time of year! They are the first blossoms of the growing season of 2008. From here the landscape just gets more and more colorful.
But until it bursts into full bloom, here's a peak at the garden in my bead shop. Stop by and pick a bouquet or two.
Until next time.....
