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!

recently. this morning, it could not be accessed at all.

our "sitting" update, growing up with girls at "dear lillie", and a winner....

yesterday, Mr D and I sat with  Holland Grace while her Mommy and 
Daddy went out to brunch.  it was the very first time that Mommy 
and Daddy have left the house together, without little berry blue eyes
she was a perfect little angel. we had so much fun playing, hugging and
smooching her precious little face. 

Holland will soon be standing...
i am hoping to win this wonderful growth chart for her library room.
Jennifer at dear lillie is generously offering to give one away!

Jennifer is the cutest Mom. she is filled with design wonder and has
the most amazing family and friends that help her take it to market. 

her daughters, Lillie and Lola hug your heart.

Jennifer is also a gracious hostess. she designs a lovely printable for
each month and gives it away! if you haven't seen her March print...
check it out below!  it's beautiful!

~ find it here ~

"it's on display in my kitchen!  thank you, Jennifer!"
