Seasonal Sunday


Don't Forget you still have time to purchase a lovely gift for Mother's Day!

Welcome to my first garden post of the season. Although it is extremely cold and rainy here in Boston, I did manage to get my vintage bike painted and the basket filled with lovely herbs and annuals. I have been waiting to be able to get in the garden this year, but other than raking leaves and pruning, my NEW PINK BIKE is the closest I've gotten to be able to bring some beauty to my yard.


I just love the look of my new pink bike sitting in the front of my house just waiting for warmer weather to give those pretty posies the boost of heat they need to grow and spill over the top of the basket. Honestly, I just can't wait for it to stop raining for the temperature to rise a bit. I'm still in my flannel p.j.'s if you can believe that! 

I hope wherever you live the temperature is more like spring or summer than it is here! Ughh.


 

I also wanted to show off the two newest bracelets in my collection. I'm really enjoying the relaxation of creating jewelry again. Especially working with vintage pieces and old lace. I'm just thrilled at the way this collection is progressing.

Happy Pink Saturday Cathy Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share this evening. I simply adore your bike. Makes one just want to hop on and cycle off with that basket of gorgeous flowers. So beautiful and what a gorgeous addition. The pansies they are so smiling.

Living here in the Phoenix desert, we are already in our summer. My grands are already swimming in the pool. They were here last weekend swimming.

Your bracelets are gorgeous and I thank you for sharing them with me. Hope you have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Your pink bike certainly captures the feeling of spring as it finds its way to Boston.

Your pink bike is fantastic! It brings a little cheer even if the weather doesn't want to cooperate just yet.

Cathy,
Hello! I hope all is well with you and your family!

Love the bike! So cute!! It has been fairly cold here in Pa. I am holding off yet in buying all my annuals for the season because i am still afraid of frost!

Have a great week!
Hugs,
Deb
