~ I thought it Sprung? ~

It was Spring yesterday, right? 

oh well....
it's pretty and all, but ~
I really wanted to see some 
flowers and bunnies and spring-like things instead 
of grey skies and snow.

here is the view from my studio upstairs in this old farmhouse this morning;

although it is a snow day,
I'll create my own bit of Spring with my paintbox & brushes.

the one advantage of a snow day is that I can pretend that I don't have much to do.
{HA!....that cracked me up!}

as much as there is on my agenda, 
I do have a rotten chest cold and need to rest up a bit.

so you'll find me quietly painting while the snowflakes wane,
enjoying a couple of cups of steaming hot tea with honey & ginger ~

and dreaming of wonderful warm
and flower-filled days to come!

Blessings from the Farm

  3. Fun to see your paint box and how some colors are almost gone and some seem almost untouched. I do hope to own one of your watercolor pieces some day. You create such gentle souls.
