Hello dear friends! Michigan Spring is making it's usual teases of warm and sunny, in the high of 50F one day, to 30F below and 2" of snow the next day. But it's kinda expected after all these years of living in our fine Great Lakes State, so we've been taking it with stride as usual, making those ever "around-the-corner" days of Summer ahead ever more a prize.
Every time one of those warm breezy days comes around, we've been taking full advantage by raking up more of the wet leaves still left by dear old Autumn before mosquitoes come set up homesteading. I've already weeded the front flower garden spots twice and plans for window boxes are finally coming reality! Oh how I'm looking forward to trying my hand at some of the new verities of flower seeds we've already picked up as well! Oh yes, hopes of a fully blossoming flower filled yard this Summer is definitely something that I'm looking forward to during these otherwise drab days of either brown or snow.
Shoes- earth brand, hand-me-down // Legging, me-made // Skirt- thrifted, $3? (old) // Undershirt- Loft, thrifted // Chambray button up- Wall Flower brand; Goodwill, $3 // Hair flower- ? // Headwrap- Garlands of Grace in Daffodil RuffleThe beautiful Garlands of Grace captured the anticipation of Spring so wonderfully this season with their new line of light & flowery headwraps they released last month. Among the collection was this ruffly warp you see upon my head called, Daffodil Ruffle. Since my first order of headwraps had become such staples in my wardrobe these last few months, I decided the cost would be well worth the investment to add some Spring cheer that my closet was in need of. I ordered this pale yellow wrap along with Kathrine's Vintage Button. How excited I was to see it back in stock for Spring! I'll surely have to put an outfit together to feature it here on the blog as well soon!
Inopportune gallivants have also become a pleasure of ours during this in-between seasons time. One being this very photo shoot you see here. This field is just up the road from our house before you hit the hill that leads you into our wooded valley. Bek and I stopped the car when we saw a huge flock of birds just landing as we headed home from taking care of a neighbor's dog. As all good sisters do who have a snap-happy sister, I ran well around the field after the flock in hope of one of those fabulous photos. You know, one of those with an inspiring faced person in the midst of a cloud of birds taking flight. True to say that the birds could care less about our picture, but at least we got a good little photo shoot out of the deal. Even if there's not a bird to be seen in any of the shots. ;)
What's the weather like by you this Spring?
Have you ever purchased from Garlands of Grace before?
Ever run across a corn field?
Let us know; let us press on to know YHWH; His going out is sure as the dawn; He will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth. Hosea 6:3
