The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Spring Evolves On Crooked Creek. . .

Blossom~by~blossom Spring evolves On Crooked Creek. . .

This past week, I was on the hunt for a small natural element wreath. Earlier in the year, I purchased a twig wreath with a miniature bird's nest. Thinking at the time, it would work on my wreath stand come Spring. I found two twig wreaths at Michael's. . .but they were a bit more than I was willing to pay. Goodwill wreaths were affordable, but had seen better days. So~o~o~. . . I stopped in at a local Antique Shop~ Roadhouse Antiques where I found a soft pastel hued floral wreath. Not at all what I had envisioned; however the hues were perfect for the season.

Inspiration comes from a variety of sources. Sometimes, it comes from a change of decor, a make~over, a move to a new home, a remodeling, or as in this case. . .a change of Season.

Springs official arrival is still a few weeks away. Each morning this week, I've awakened to the chirping of bird's outside my windows. Dear ones, there is no better alarm clock than the joyful singing of bird's to these ears! Thus, the motivation for the change to the entry hall On Crooked Creek. . .our fine~feathered friends.

A Spring cloche displaying a nest is under the watchful eye of both gender of birds. Their characteristic expressions indicates a puzzling dilemma. The golden bird statutes atop walnut pedestals were a recent purchase at Memories of Home Winter Sale @ 50% off!

Angel of Miracles depicts how gently we are held during the difficult situations of life. This is one of my favorite Willow Tree collectibles. Notice how the shoulders are rounded to help cradle the fallen bird between the cupped hands. Ever so gently the angel holds the bird, as not to damage or cause pain in any form.

My newest Willow Tree collectible is titled Happiness! This figurine is an embodiment of pure joy with bluebirds perched on outstretched arms ~ it reads FREE to sing, laugh, dance. . .create.

Spring a time for new beginnings.
                                                                    A freshness of the air and soul!

Until next time. . .
