Baby Girl Changing Pad in Flannel Turquoise Flowers by HattieDesigns

With spring here, (even though the scene outside my home looks more like winter, I’m pretending that white stuff isn’t there!), I’m ready to pitch anything winter related, decor wise.  It’s time for color, flowers, freshness!

I love this spring home decor inspired collection, curated by Kathy with Hattie Designs.   I love the pops of turquoise (my color for this year!), blues, purples.  Thank you Kathy for including my home magnets.  

Would you like a treasury you have curated featured on my blog? Either include one of my items from my Etsy shop or tag your treasury “mylittlechickadee” and if I pick your treasury I will feature one of your items in the blog post along with the treasury.

chick reflection: spring

springquote

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”  – Anne Bradstreet

As a lifelong Minnesotan, I truly appreciate this quote.  I must admit after this past Minnesota I can’t complain as we really didn’t have that rough of a winter with snow and super cold temps (like the winter before).  I think of those more north and to the east of us who are still dealing with snow and I understand how excited and eager they must be to see the signs of spring.  And oh those signs of spring will be ever so welcomed by those folks who have been buried under the endless mounds of snow.

Remember no matter how dark and cold it gets, lightness and warmth does manage to appear.  Be open to it.  And appreciate each moment of sunshine when it shines; soak it up to the depth of your soul.

Ok, I know it’s cliche to say I love this Etsy treasury, curated by Algodony Canela, since it is called LOVE Trends but I do. I just do.  I love the flow of the spring colors mixed with black/white; captures the feel of spring for me.  And I love (yes I used that word again) each Etsy find featured here (who doesn’t love Dope Soap on a Rope?!)

Thank you Algodony Canela for featuring my Celtic Ornament.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

irishblessingHappy St. Patrick’s Day!  

I love this day; I feel connected to my Irish heritage because of my mom.  She was a beautiful red-haired Irish girl.  She didn’t get a chance to visit Ireland before she passed so I pray I can take my family there one day to scatter some of her ashes there.

One of my favorite Irish blessings (and my mom’s) is:

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Even if you’re not Irish give someone a big hug today, spread sunshine wherever you can!  That is the spirit of the Irish and my mom.

::hugs:: to you!
