Oh my.....the first day of Spring in
 Northern California is gray and drizzly! 
I hear that in many parts of the
country it is warm and green, so I
am thankful that many who may
not be able to enjoy a sunny first day of
 Spring in the past, can enjoy one this year!

Most orchards have already bloomed,
 but I am hopeful there will still be 
more blossoms to see once this rain is
 done.  A friend calls them "Cotton
 Candy" trees.  Isn't that sweet?  There 
is a house in Redwood Valley with 
long driveway that is lined with them.  
She says that is where the
 Cotton Candy Fairy lives.
I am always writing silly little
ditties, but this one, that came to
me on Sunday, is helpful.
You must find some joy
in work or play ---
to make Heaven found
in each new day.
Cotton candy wishes for a joyful week!

Happy St. Patrick's Day !

May the road rise up
to meet you,
May the wind
be always at your back,
May the sun
shine warm upon your face,
And the rains
fall soft upon your fields...
And until we meet again,
May God hold  you
in the palm of His hand.
--- An Irish Blessing

I finally finished some beaded button
bracelets this week!   I'll be listing 
some in my Etsy Store this weekend.
Click on photo for larger view.
I have also been working on some
cute decoupage pieces too.  
May Happiness often
enter your gate ---
and stay very late.
