Flowers Everywhere!

Every year I look forward to the first daffodil. This year, before I knew it, there were lots blooming all at once! These are the tiny miniature variety and are in a sheltered spot beside my front steps. The big guys will be later blooming. It does seem as though they bloom earlier and earlier each year, though.

On my front steps are pots of pansies I planted in the late fall. They got a good start then and with all the rain, they are doing very well! I just love the bright cheery colors!

And indoors, my beautiful glorious bouquet of Valentine flowers from Travis. Here's a detail of the wonderful display of pinks, purples, and reds - what a riot of color!

I was enjoying them while I sewed - and then Kim's Beau came along to enjoy the lovely fragrance.

and  I decided it was probably best to move the flowers to the mantle.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here are two of my little ones asking for you to be their Valentine today! Please feel free to copy these photos and send them to whomever you wish!
A wise person once said that your love should be like the heat from a bonfire - Available to everyone and denied to no one. I certainly like that notion and subscribe to it myself!! So.......when I say: Love to all, I mean it!!
Happy Valentines Day to all! May your day be filled with LOVE!! Here's some from me!!!

I Love this Bunny!

This little cutie is headed for Illinois and his new Mom tomorrow! I made a panda bunny last year, but this one is made from that new extra extra long fur fabric from Threadteds in the Netherlands.
Jonathan , as he will be called, should reach his destination in time for Valentine's day, but he's carrying some festive Easter decorations along with him.

I found this dandy egg with a picture of a bunny with similar coloring to our Jonathan!

I hope you like this sweet little darling as much as I do. It will be hard to put him into his traveling box tomorrow. I may have time to make another panda bunny or two before Easter, so if you are interested in one, be sure to sign up for notification of new friends in my Etsy shop!
