A sweet find!

The other day my friend, Barby, pointed out the first abandoned nest to me (yes, that is a fake egg). I then went on a search of the property for others and found the second one. I love them!

The Gift of Spring

I started walking for exercise about 2 1/2 months ago. At first I had to make myself go. It was often cold, drizzly, and I was seriously out of shape. Slowly, I began to enjoy feeling more fit, having time to pray and reflect, and especially marveling at watching nature do what it does best.

Even during the cold and bleak weather, I loved seeing flower bulbs emerge, buds on the trees, and geese flying by the hundreds overhead. I even found a storm blown branch of curly willow that I gathered twigs from to take home. This week I'm thrilled to see the gorgeous colors of the dogwoods and lilacs blooming. I'm even seeing colorful birds I've never seen before. Today I am so grateful for the gift of spring!

My New Space!

I've just set up a new space at a wonderful shop called The Fussy Duck. It's located at 887 Commercial Street SE in Salem, Oregon. My little space (and I do mean little) is located in the first room on the back wall to the far left. Come check it out. The store is open Monday-Saturday from 10am-6pm.
