Masterpiece Monday ~ South Riding, Part 2
Felt Banners for Lent & Easter

Announcing the Winner ... and another Spring Offer!

I'm very happy to announce that the winner of my Spring Package Giveaway is:

 EK White!!!

EK's favorite Spring Tradition is the "tapping of eggs." Now, I am not Greek myself, but a few years ago I had the honor of participating in this festive Easter tradition - and quite luckily my egg survived to the last!

But enough about me ... CONGRATULATIONS, EK! I will be in touch very soon so we can arrange all our posting details. :)

And thank you, EVERYONE, for taking the time to leave me your Spring Thoughts - explaining your traditions and sharing your beautiful memories. (Honestly, dear readers, if you are looking for Spring ideas, take a look at all these lovely comments - so many wonderful ideas here!) I so enjoyed reading every single comment, and if I could, I would send each and every one of you a Spring Package ...

Well, I can't do that ... but how about this?

I'd love to send each of you a "Springtime Newsletter!"

 This is an idea I've been toying with for a while ... creating a little homespun, handmade newsletter to send to interested readers. You all know how I love writing, and paper-crafting, and talking about the seasons ... so this might be fun!

So if you'd like to receive my newsletter, please let me know in the comments below and I'll add you to my mailing list. (You don't have to leave your "snail mail" address in the comment, I'll be in touch via email and we can go from there.)


Well I am now completely ready for Spring - and very happily it feels just like Spring here in New England. It's a glorious day, and one day this week, right after lunch, I'll be taking the boys on our first "Nature Walk" of the year. I'm sure I'll have lots to "report" after that!

Have a great Monday, my friends ... see you here again very soon!
