I think I have mentioned before that we have had one dreary winter....not any snow to speak of yet but cold and cloudy days. This was the scene across the lake early the other morning. I quickly hopped out of bed and ran for my camera because the clouds only stay that way for a minute. Sure enough that old saying that goes: "Pink sky in the Morning, Sailors take warning. Pink sky at night, Sailor's delight" applied here. See the pink sky low on the horizon? Soon it started raining with lots of wind and rained the rest of the day.
We have been busy as bees in the Vintage Nest studio with all the dreary cloudy days outside. Aren't these pinwheels the cutest? Don't they just brighten your day? When you hold a pinwheel and let it blow in the wind you can't help but smile and feel like a kid again. Every summer I put pinwheels in my garden urn on the front porch to add a little whimsy and amusement. These happy pinwheels are my latest gift toppers. They are delightful and such a fun way to brighten up a gift for someone special. And of course, to add a touch of vintage, the centers are large cute old buttons.
I received an award the other day. The first for 2009 and what a "sweet" reward it is. It's called the Lemonade Reward.......just like that saying that says "When life hands you a bunch of lemons, make lemonade". It's a reward for Attitude and Gratitude and I pass it to all my sweet readers. Mrs. Jones6 sent this my way. Mrs. Jones is the BEST and she makes pretty marmalade too. :) Oh Yeah, I forgot, she is having a wonderful give-away. Scoot on over there and sign up. You will love it.
What's that busted and broken glass door all about you say? Stay tuned for the next segment of as the World Turns at The Vintage Nest to see what happens when Lynn goes into a cleaning frenzy in her studio. :) Y'all be good now! Until next time.
