In Search Of Spring......

Hello all! Boy has it been one busy week!:o) A week of doctors appointments, and a few more next week! :o) I was thinking of moving in till surgery. :o) All and all it has been a good week and the weather has been quite beautiful. First let me say, I know it is not Valentines Day just yet but I had to share this cute little vintage postcard not only is it sweet but beautiful too! The cutest little heart deliverers don't you think! I have not had as much photo time as I would like and these vintage cards and postcards are just wonderful!

As I visit many of my favorite places around blogland, I am hearing a familiar sentiment. Many are longing for Spring! :o) Many are simply wanting a break from chilling weather, while others long to see spring flowers. Almost nothing inspires like beautiful flowers and I just had to share a few wonderful places with you that just may lift your spirits ! :o) I had a new visitor on last week, a lovely watercolor artist by the name of Helene at Art Glehen Watercolours. Her work is just beautiful! Once you visit, I am sure you will come away with a smile. Also Sandy at Dream Create Inspire is a lovely artist and teacher and her blog is always filled with the most beautiful flowers imaginable!:o) Sandy is so sweet with a smile like a ray of sunshine!:o) Karen is another beautiful artist at a Scrapbook of Inspiration, her place is a place of wonder and grace and of course inspiration! Give these artist a visit and allow them to add a touch of Springtime to your day!:o)

I plan to take a blogging break the first week of February and will not be actively blogging or posting for that month. I hope to be back early March but we will see how things go. Though I will be posting next week!:o) Thank you so much my friends, you are such an inspiration and encouragement to me, a true treasure indeed. Let me also say thank you to all the new visitors who have been coming by to say hello lately! :o) I just love it when someone new drops in! :o) Each of you continue to enjoy your week and I will chat with you in a few days!

The Lord will guide you continually
and satisfy your soul in drought,
and strenghthen your bones,
you shall be like a watered garden,
and like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

Isaiah 58:11 (NKJV)

Oh yes, I'm looking toward spring, too. In fact I've been painting a bit on the inside of the house so I can run out to garden the very minute the warm winds start to blow. :)
