Who Would Have Thought?

This is so typical for Michigan. Once you get a taste of Spring, Mother Nature plays a joke on you when you least expect it. First she offers you nice 50 degree weather and when you look the other way, she plants an ice storm in your back yard.

We have to stay calm and be patient...Spring will return.
When you ask? Mother Nature knows, she has many tricks up her sleeve

Spring is Here

The Robins Have Returned to Michigan
It may not officially be Spring yet, but the first sign of it for me is the
return of the Robins.
As I peaked out my window the other morning I saw one pearched on the tree just outside of my kitchen.
So, in commemoration of thier return I dedicate this post to the coming of Spring!

Happy Spring!

March Artful Bag Challenge

Welcome to the March Bag Challenge. This month's challenge was to find a bag that you haven't used in a while and have fun and embillish it. This bag challenge is sponsored by Anna from Frosted Petunias.
Please check out her embellished bag as well as others.
This is the before picture of my bag. This little coin purse was an impulse buy. You know those days that we absolutly have to buy something before we leave the mall.

I added pearls from an old necklace

Vintage ivory cord.

For the finishing touch I placed a pendant from a vintage jeweled necklace,
just above the clasp.

Here is my finished coin purse.

Size is 4 inches across by 3 3/4 deep.
Inside has a zippered pouch where you can keep your money and a drivers license. It will easily fit in your pocket.

I now have to go somewhere to use it.
