Show and Tell

I have always loved the colors of Spring. They are so cheerful and remind of picking flowers in my Mother's garden as a child. When the weather would start to warm just enough to wear one of the new dresses she had made me I would pick bouquets for her to place all over the house. It seemed like she had every color of the rainbow and I would pretend to be Alice talking to the flowers lost in Wonderland. But I digress. .

These pretty little trims in bright colors of Spring just make me smile. From bright greens. .

to sunny yellows and golds. . .

and pretty shades blues. . I just love them all. .

and yes, my sweetie remembered Valentine's Day with some pretty pinkie-peach roses!
Have a wonderful week!

Love the trims and agree spring can be the best time of year, in fact that is really when I feel my New Year starts as everything is growing and fresh.
