Morning Shadows

The shadows at 6:30 in the morning looked soft and delicate.  I'll take notice this evening and I'm sure they'll be more pronounced and crisper.  Have a perfect day.  ~amy

Good Morning Sunshine

I know this isn't an earth shattering post but this is the first morning in over 2 weeks that I'm waking up to sunshine!  I've missed it and I'm feeling happy!

I Couldn't Resist

I happened to see this very pretty vintage brooch on Etsy and I had to buy it for my daughter.  She just completed her first year in college majoring in Music Education.  She plays the violin.
I wrapped it up and


she opened it. Isn't it sweet?  She loved it and she pinned it inside of her violin case.

In celebrating Mother's Day...I would like to share with you the latest picture I have with my 2 lovely daughters.  This was taken on friday evening.  My daughter to the right was having her 9th grade social and my daughter to the left just came home a few hours earlier from college for the summer.  I'm very lucky indeed to have my wonderful girls.  They're both blessings and to my mom and sister I would like to say that 'I love you'.
Happy Mother's Day to you my dear friends!

Typically...this time of year I'm hosing down the front porch floor, laying down my outdoor carpet and then putting my rocking chairs, table and lamp out.
This year I have to be a little patient.  
We have a visitor. 


When she hear's me coming to the front porch...she's on her way!


She doesn't go to far away from her nest. 
She's always watching and waiting for me to leave so she can get back to her business. 
Doesn't she look beautiful and peaceful up there?



I've managed to get a few things out though.
I bought this pretty metal mesh door basket and added some flowers and twigs to it.
The flowers are fake of course.


I added real geraniums to these pretty clay pots that were made in Germany.  
 I hope she lays those little eggs soon. 
I'm itching to do more.
