happy spring and giveaway reminder

Spring has finally arrived here in Portland.  We had a full day of sunshine yesterday with temps in the 70's and  it looks like we might have more of the same today.   Flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing, and renewal is in the air.  Ahhhhhhhhhhh.

If you haven't already, enter my giveaway for a $50 Shabby Apple gift card.  You have until mid-day tomorrow to enter.  I will announce the winner tomorrow evening.

Hope you have a beautiful day!  I snapped this picture yesterday while we were out walking the dogs.

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter." - Rachel Carson
