first Spring on my desk and random Lynne...

the inspiration...

it's still a bit chilly here in the PacNWest. this morning,
before work, i made a quick little trip to backyard fuchsia bush. 
(wow, i did not prune it back  far enough last Fall.)

this plant is older than me.  it began as a  tiny clipping from my grandmother's garden.
(do you see? the SUN is rising and shining!)

 how easy is life... now that we have embraced canning jars for their 
multi functional qualities?

i took this image on a little Picnik.
(i'm going to be lost without Picnik. )

i won't be posting again until Monday! i have some major 
catching up and cleaning to do. next week is going to be a busy one.

i said yes one to many times...LOL.
i know that many of you do the very same thing!

that little teapot talks and teaches manners!
