Spring Is Definitely Here!!

Here in Oklahoma, Spring has arrived.  The Redbud tree is looking gorgeous!  Around the yard, things are popping up everywhere...

Azaleas are blooming like crazy...

Lilies of the Valley are popping up everywhere...

and I'm always amazed at how the Hostas just pop up almost every night!!

Everything is green and looks so wonderful.  I am staying home even tho it is driving me crazy not to get out.  Some days, I just get in my car and drive a few blocks and drive back home.  Call me crazy but it helps me.

I have such an addiction to vintage lace and doilies which is no surprise to you who have followed me a while.

But, let's talk about what all I use it for...

This piece is lace and hankies that were my Grandmother's (Nana).  The buttons were out of her button box which I inherited when she passed away.  I was blessed with that and her watch (on the piece) and her old treadle sewing machine.  The small frame holds a photo of her and my son when he was about a year old.

Of course, Miss Begonia!!

So, I really do use a lot of it.  Needless to say, I still have a wide variety to use.

Stay in and stay safe.




  1. I have the small lace doily enhanced small pillow you sent me when I had cancer - I treasure it Judy. Hugs. Keep on keeping space, being well. Every day we go for a short drive just to be somewhere else. It helps.

    1. Good to hear from you. Hope you are staying safe.

  2. Çok güzeller. Benim de bir sürü dantelim vardı kendi ördüğüm. Hediye olarak dağıttım.

  3. Hi Judy. Oh how great you are seeing so much color in Okla. We are getting some buds but no color just yet. I love that little pillow and Easter Bunny all dressed so cute in buttons and lace. I am glad you are home and safe and finding cute projects to keep you busy and your mind happy. I miss my grand girls so much and I know you miss yours. Let's hope if we all follow the rules we will get our normal lives back. Stay safe and well.

  4. Thanks for dropping by Kris. I am going quite stir crazy but staying in. The little girls call me several times a day to tell me what they are doing. That are loving being at home with Tiffany. Stay safe.

  9. How beautiful, I don't know what redbud is? it looks like cherry blossom? very pretty. I saw the first bluebell yesterday but it was in a really dark dense part of the wood so could not photograph it. Hope you are keeping safe.
