Premature Spring Fever!

It's everywhere...

I splurged a bit and bought a bouquet of Pussywillows at our local florist this week.
I'm loving them and hope they dry well...

The appearance of our first Root Children...
A delight to create; meaningful, and very simple. Oh, there will be more!!

We purchased a sun prism a few weeks ago...it was one of the best $2.99 purchases I've ever made!

Our little boy is doing well and we are seeing some real progress after his laser treatment. The bruising and swelling is noticeably better. He goes about his days like nothing has ever happened. The resiliency of a child is astonishing.

We love this hat! Created by WaldorfMama.

Some days here are blustery and very cold.
Other days remind me of the soothing balm of Spring that is surely coming...

  5. Love your root children! I've been so excited for Spring this year too. After spending much of the winter in NY I now remember what it's like to crave Spring. Your son reminds me of my youngest. He looks like a gentle soul.

  14. Lovely, fun post . . . I am so glad your babe is doing well and so is his mama! Your pussy willows remind me of Tudor's book, A Time to Keep. I think there are pussy willows bordering one the March illustration.
    I love how you are preparing for spring-so inspiring!

  18. I love your pussy willows too. We always had an Easter tree growing up made of pussy willow sprigs. Now I have a little pond on the property I live on and we can go collect our own! We actually still have the ones from last year that are in a corner in a vase. Erm, gotta work on letting go I guess! Ha!

  23. I love pussy willows...I have been half tempted to prune a few branches off our fruit trees and force a few early blossoms indoors.
