Feeling a need for colorful flowers!

Created a vignette with sunflowers
to go with my painting

And a large bouquet for the kitchen
Nice to get some color into the house
and the joy of flowers ... as the winter cold
refuses to give way to
I made these bouquets with flowers from
the grocery store... brightens up our home
~ and my heart! ~

May your week be blessed with moments of colorful beauty!
~ Spring is just around the corner! ~

IT IS AROUND THE CORNER, isn't it? This winter is WHOOOOOSHING by so quickly, and while I am always anxious to see and feel spring, it just is going by too fast. LOVELY BOUQUET MY FRIEND and look at that great room. Everything looks fantastic! Off to work now...Anita

Hello dear Violet (and Anita!)...
I just love fresh flowers in the home..all year long. Your bouquets are so lovely. You are right, we are itching for Spring just about now!
I'm glad you're familiar with Ms. Stoddard. One can never have enough inspiration! You inspire us so much as well!!
Jamie's books are very light and fun, basically reinforcing the philosophy of slowing down, noticing and smelling those beautiful flowers:))
Have a lovely day, dear Violet!

Hello there sweet one!

You are making this home so special with your touches. Whether it is your art of your gift to rearrange things, your house is a real home, with the foundation of LOVE!

Yes, Spring will be here before we know it. I think many of the trees in my neighborhood (in Los Angeles) are "confused" because they are all blooming and it looks and feels like Spring! Hope you're having a great week!

I'm thankful for your flowers today Violet. I'm feeling the blues lately. Feb is a hard month for me. Mom's birthday on the 10th. She would have been 93. : (
i think we have some real winter coming our way, this can't be all.
I look forward to some blooms in my garden come spring.
Thanks for sharing your beauty.

Thanks for the bougquet Violet! Wow, did that bring SPRING to my door just now! :) It sure did. Here in GA we have experienced some near 70 days this past week, and I LOVED it! My Mother is visiting here from the north...and we are having the most amazing visit. Can't wait till the flowers start popping up to say hello - our fruit trees are already blooming in the neighborhood with their spring blooms. No kidding...
