moss garden and the little african violet my Mom gave me. Then I went out and painted the hellebore out in the garden - the first thing to bloom under the snow! Then I thought, "I should paint each thing as it blooms in my garden this summer!

Here are the outfits I mixed and matched from the items I got on my spring shopping trip.
It's great what a new infusion of clothes can do for a wardrobe! I'm glad now that I was ultra picky about the clothes I got, so even though I only got 4 shirts and one sweater, they work really well with what I already have and they're good quality/fit.

school room proved to be too distracting and by January the change was as much for my piece of mind as for their productivity! My oldest works more independently out in the living room and my younger boys works in the schoolroom.
plate racks and it's the perfect hing for keeping the school books organized and easily accessible.
Note #2: We got our first 100% on a spelling test! One of our hardest things to tackle this year and he studied for it all by himself!!!

Since technically spring is here, yet there's still snow on the ground, I needed some good transitional tops - layering shirts and cardigans - and I wanted things that were nice enough for church and comfortable enough for everyday...plus, they had to fit, flatter, and be within budget...
I was able to find 4 long sleeve, soft, lightweight, cotton shirts and a nice, medium weight, navy cardigan. I already have a good white cable knit cardigan and a couple shirts here at home to mix and match with, so I think I'm all set now : )

The Victorian Wall Garden (many more ideas to try from that series - so inspiring!) Anyway, cloches are expensive (see HERE) and basically ornamental, since a milk jug with the bottom cut out works just as well - if not better because it's white plastic, so plants aren't in danger of getting baked in the sun... But, I wanted some because they're pretty and old fashioned.
