I don't know is Spring is really here, but I am going to enjoy these beautiful days to the fullest.  It is so nice to open all the windows and go out on the deck with a cup of tea first thing in the morning.  I have just recently discovered that I would rather have a cup of tea than a cup of coffee.  Spiced Chai is my favorite, with a teaspoon of honey to sweeten just a little.

Our miniature peach tree is in total bloom, it has never bloomed this early before.  I hope we don't get a freeze that will ruin all the buds and blooms.   We have a set of bluebirds making a nest in an old bird house that we have in the yard.  Every year they come and nest.  I love to watch them.

My daughters  husband takes beautiful pictures and has created a website, if you would like to take a look at his photos here is his site Ed.  I also have it on my sidebar.  My hubby has started sculpting again.  He loves making Old World Santas from around the world.   He wants to make them authentic to the country so if anyone has any good information on the correct clothes, etc he would love the info.

I have been busy lately getting things ready for out booth at the antique mall.  The end of March they are having an event called March Back in Time.   Lots of demonstrations of crafts of old and a Civil  War encampment will be set up.  Hoping for a large crowd.

Here is a wall hanging I created for the event.

I made some new needle books as well, these will be listed in my Etsy shop later today.  

My nephew works for an equestrian center in Texas that does unique therapy for children and adults with disabilities.  They are having a fundraiser in April.  I created this wall hanging as a donation for the silent auction.  

Everyone have a great day.

Hugs Jackie
