I'm impatiently awaiting spring's arrival, the recent snow did not help my impatience and I'm still nursing sweet pea starts inside because it's too cold to plant them - they're quickly taking over my kitchen window because they love the warmth! Can you blame them?

Oh well, when you live in the Pacific NW and it's spring, you have to get used to rain, snow, ice and sun all within a day's time! It's wo
rth the wait though when all those gorgeous flowers are in bloom and the grass is so sweet and green.

Since I can't do too much in my garden just yet, I've been busy getting ready for the 4 Friends sale on March 21st - you don't want to miss it! Four locations with wonderful finds offered by very talented women, see the post at right for more info. This is our second year, we had a so much fun last year that we wanted to to do it again and actually added a new "friend" who's really an old friend, Martha of Vintage Trifles! If you're not familiar with her, check out her blog to see some of her fabulous creations!

I've posted some more pics of things that will be for sale at the show, I'm having a hard time finding enough room for everything. I always have way too much for my little barn to hold but the more the merrier, right? Hope you can make it!

Ironstone and chickens

Garden finds

Paper weights with vintage print

Decadent chandeliers
