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

Feathering The Porch. . .

Wind on the Prairie is constant!
Spring officially arrives March 20th,
but our temperatures are cooler than they appear
due to the wind factor!

"Mr. Ed" and I recently took advantage
of the sun shine on the front porch
for a bit of feathering!

With "Mr. Ed's" assistance,
I designed this Spring basket for our front porch.

I was quite smitten with the texture of this half basket
and purchased it at an Antique Mall 
while on vacation this Autumn!

Using a faux green fern,
twigs and Spanish moss made this an easy design.
The only thing purchased were the eggs!

Across the top of the grate are two swags.
I adore the realistic appearance of the faux branches!

The outward appearance of branches, 
just beginning to bud and leaf out, creates a "tree top" effect.

The temperatures dropped drastically
with our howling wind, as is often the case
during Spring on the Prairie, forcing "Mr. Ed" and I indoors!

So~o~o . . .
for now, this is all the feathering of our porch
On Crooked Creek

Although the wind will remain constant,
the temperature shows promise 
of allowing "Mr. Ed" and I another nice
afternoon to continue feathering the porch.

Until next time. . .
