Sweet HEARTS, BLUEBIRDS and Spring!!!

Oh just the mere thought of spring creates a warm feelings all over me....birds chirping, grass turning green, tulip and first spring flowers beginning to peek through the ground after a sleepy winter. I can hardly WAIT! I want it now!!! But alas, in the cold state of Michigan, we will probably not see spring until mid-April. So with spring on my mind and even though Valentines Day has not come yet...I just could not resist adding a sweet bluebird to a Heart Shaped Wreath of trailing roses I have listed on my EBAY. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I had fun painting it!

I have been so busy creating some sweet heart items for Valentines. Soooo.... you can see why I haven't been in here to post. I thought I'd better at least give you a sneak peek as to what I have been doing. You will find these items and more on my EBAY link!

I have painting a beautiful heart wreath with roses on an old frame and piece of glass. I just love reusing items, that usually would be thrown away. Don't ya think this just works?

Oh I have had so much fun with this one...this is my own design of a Heart Pocket. What I have done is made a heart shape w/thin cardstock and covered them with fun papers...tied it together with ribbon and then embellished it to pieces. I also painted a heart pick, tag and fun lacy doily rose! Pure Hearts Deilight!

These next 2 pictures are of foiled heart ornaments and heart boxes that I have embellished with seed beads/pearls/sequinns, on some and then my handpainted fluffy victorian roses. They just are so sweet for any Heart lover out there.

This is how our new years started...and fresh new blanket of snow! Just like the fresh new *Do-overs* God gives us each day! As I read my daily devotional today it has inspired me to reflect and look ahead of ways I can be compassionate to Zechariah 7:9 it says...This is what the Lord Almighty says: Administer true justice, show mercy and compassion to one another...

A great way to start the new year...another *DO-OVER*...I hope I do it justice!
