Spring Birthdays

Movita and Derek gave me a stamp set on my last birthday which was so lovely that I could only bear to open it this morning - almost a year later! I've enjoyed having it sit, pretty and new, on a dresser in front of an upstairs window. I do believe it using pretty things. My mother was married almost sixty years and there were glasses and dishes in the cupboards that never saw the light of day in all that time. They were being saved "for good". I do, however, like to savor beautiful items for a while before they are used - the gardener's soap in the gorgeous box, Isa's embroidered towels, scalloped flower gift tags from Hadley, a beautiful skein of yarn...


With so many spring birthdays in the family, I unsealed the box today to release the birds!


and organized my workspace


to put together some pretty packages.
