Opening an Old Dresser Drawer - Free Pink Fuzzy Bunny and Baby Girl Card Images

Even though it is a cold, damp and grey day, the air has changed and  no matter how nasty the weather there is no denying Spring is on the way. The air is softer now, and the wet soil has a mustier earthier scent, like the odor one experiences when first opening an old dresser drawer.

The odor always makes me think of the small dresser we used as a baby changing table. A hand-me-down three drawers deep, with a hundred coats of white enamel it fit our 'early attic' d├ęcor perfectly.   My husband constructed a topper, I lined the drawers with wrapping paper saved from baby shower gifts.

 The nursery was painted pale green and we hung crisp white cotton curtains that sported a band of pastel plaid coordinated with pastel plaid bumpers. Thrift shop frames and pictures salvaged from a Peter Rabbit calendar made the room cheery. Over the crib that  my brothers and I had slept in hung a brightly colored mobile of songbirds from my own nursery days. We were ready!
 Green and yellow! So much green and yellow! The safe colors back when girl or boy was a wonderful surprise. And then an explosion of pink when our darling girl made her debut.

Happy Valentine's Day! Spring Is on It's Way! Valentine and Seed Packet Images

Happy Valentine's Day! Spring Is on It's Way!

St. Valentine's Day is a milestone date to me. A little more than a month 'till Spring.
Although there is snow on the ground and rumours of more to come, my internal clock says it is time to watch for the first Spring bulbs, and dream over garden catalogs.
'A little bird told me...' 
Soon it will be time for song birds and window boxes.

Zinnia, Daisy, Morning Glory, Marigold.
I love their spicy scent and bold colors. 
I think these packets will find their way onto a Spring time garland.
