     The days are full now, what with baby and soccer practices, and trying to keep up with the ever-growing piles of laundry. I'm trying to not let the lurking panic attack over the state of my house creep up on me too much....its the reality of having a new baby and I know I need to be gentle with myself. But that spring cleaning bug sure has a hold on me, and I feel the need to paint (not just paintings, but on the crackling and peeling and scuffed bits around here) but it will all have to wait!

  Of course I came here to tell you thank you for entering the giveaway! The winning submission was from Janice, and now her print will be on its way to her in the UK! Thank you all who participated-- there will be more in the future, of course! And you can find that print for sale in the shop too.

  As for me, I'm like these little pansies pressing my nose to the window ready for the weather to warm up so fun can begin. More time spent out on the porch, flowers blooming, trees leafing. I'm frankly done with dead brown winter, which still lingers in the chilly air. Time to go, winter. We will see you at the end of the year, and be excited for your return!

  Anyhow, we're going to bundle up and trot to the post office to mail off a few orders and then come back home...to scheme and dream...and try to get another load of laundry done!
Til next time,


  1. THOSE PANSIES!!! those just made my day!

  2. Great shot!

    Laundry is the bane of my existence. If you can figure out how to stay on top of it, let me in on the secret! ;)

    Looks like spring will finally arrive to New England at the end of the week! It's been an extra long winter this year.

  3. You have much going on at your place! It is good that all seems to be going well! Congratulations to the winner! Hugs to everyone!

  4. Love the pansies in the window! It has been a long cold winter for everyone and even in Forida we saw 30s again last night! Quite unusual for late March. April will hopefully be a turn towards better weather for everyone. Congratulations to the print winner. Just in time for upcoming Easter decorating!

  5. Love this photo! I'm very ready for spring too...but it's so cold here so far I haven't felt any spring cleaning urges yet!

  6. Oh Heather, a baby!! How sweet and precious. And soccer practices and busy days, oh my. I looove that photo, the paint the flowers... bliss..... Warmest greetings from Arizona ;-)
