Here today it is a beautiful day! The sun is shining and in a few minutes I am off to fetch my children from school and then we are going to the nature reserve for a picnic!
This is not from my house1 (I wish-taken out a mag)
Thank you for coming today, I hope you will make yourself at home and enjoy your visit. Please remember to post something spring related on your blog today (or over the weekend) and then link back here in the comment section with your name and your blog address. (If you have a blog otherwise just enjoy the visit!) Then we can all hippty-hop on over to each others blogs to see and spread some love! I know for a lot of you it is Fall (we call it Autumn here), but please join in nevertheless!
I will over the course of today and the weekend edit this post to show all who participate.
The photos below are from a favorite mag of mine-Country Living.
Don't you just love this decoration! It is like sleeping in air-all light and airy and so pretty!

SPRING PROJECT: A spring book
I started this book last weekend in preparation for today and I only have a few pages left to do. I did most of it in a day. The spring fever came on over, nipped me on the butt and wouldn't let go until I had done quite a few pages! I love it when inspiration suddenly hits me like that! This is the cover of my Spring book, I used an old Anthrolpologie catalog that a friend sent me.
The first page. I wanted it to be about birds, flowers and just all pretty and nice!
Page 2 and 3. Some decopague in the book, tags, painting.
page 4 and 5: nests, birds, spring flowers,lace.
page 6 and 7: More decoupage, ATC's I made lace.
page 8 and 9: paint, ribbon, postcard of a bird with lace that I sewed on around the edges.
page 10 and 11: dedicated to birds/nests.
page 12 and 13: tags, another card I received that I sewed lace around the edges. Celebrating life.
page 14 and 15: Cards I have received...hate throwing cards away and what better way then to display them! More cards with ribbon sewn on around the edges and AMY do your recognize the vintage hankie???? (thanks!) Spine of the book, covered in this lovely sequined ribbon I found.
Well that is it! I hope you gleamed some fun, inspiration, or just enjoyed looking! I can't wait to see what everyone had done for today! I promise to visit your blogs in the course of today.
Everyday should feel like Spring in our hearts. Happy, light and sunny. I know that life cannot always feel like this and sometimes we are all plagued by problems and circumstances that weigh down our hearts and spirits. I hope that you can look at something today, see the beauty and let it lift the corners of your mouth into a beautiful smile. If that doesn't work, I recommend putting on some Timberlake or Rianna and shaking that booty! LOL!
For those of you coming for the daily download. Here is link 5. Remember no links giving out on the weekend, come back on Monday for link 6. Please do not share it with anyone and remember to say thank you! Thanks.
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
