I know that for much of our nation we are having very cold temperatures, and last night I went out to our co-op meeting and I nearly froze! The mild daytime temps had fled and the wind had picked up and it was sooo cold!
However, in the last week or so the birds have become a lot more vocal, we've seen the sun again (at least for a brief time) today, our creek is running with more water in it. Right now I can hear the birds chirping outside.
I've begun to make small changes in the house to reflect the changing of the seasons. After all the seasonal changes come on slowly at first, then we become more aware of the signs of change, and then one day we know we are in the new season. That's how I'm approaching my spring decor this year.
I put my white matelasse bedspread on our bed, and added these pretty pillowcases that Rachel gave me.
It's brightened up the room, and given it a quick refresh.
I turned the pages in my Edith Holden book "The Country Diary Of An Edwardian Lady." I keep this book on the small bookcase at the end of our hallway.
I've begun to take down faux winter greens from my table centerpiece, and today the greens and ribbon above the countertop will come down. I think I will use grapevine garland and maybe some faux ivy.
I wanted to show you my waxed frames. It has added just a touch of sheen, and I like it.I've hung them back up in the bedroom for now. The black frames enhance these watercolors beautifully!
So, while I know we have a month of cold temps ahead of us, have hope my friends.

Spring is about renewal, and I sense a renewal coming in many arenas of life. I love to see God at work.
