Ragamuffin Gal

".. from my ragged heart to yours"

March 16, 2011

~* Hurry, Hurry, Spring!*~

If Leola has her way ~
Spring is coming early!

~* Leola's Spring Open House*~

As Spring comes into view ~
The first thing I like to do is 
go out and get fresh Spring ideas!

Leolas never fails to inspire me..

This gal is quite content on taking a respite in Leolas
and I can understand her perfectly.

If you are close to Lamberts/James River Assembly
in Ozark, you will surely wish to step inside Leolas doors.
There you will find wonderful friends to greet you,
and inspiring ideas to tempt you!

Are you in a Spring state of mind Yet?
I know I am!

What is the first thing you like to do 
as Spring approaches?
I would love to know.

Blessings for now..
Katie ~*

Hi Katie, what a wonderfully inspirational post. I so wish I lived near to this beautiful place, although I suspect I'd want to take up residence much like the brush lady!

We've definitely got the taste of Spring in the air in these parts, hooray! My first Spring activities? Clean the windows and tidy the garden, getting rid of old plants that haven't survived the winter spell and cleaning up the pots ready for new planting.

I'm off work tomorrow and guess what? Rain is forecast, after a few days of cool but gorgeous sunshine. The garden-time will have to wait a bit longer:0(

Enjoy the rest of your break from school, my friend.

ooo what a lovely dose of spring loveliness!!! thank you as always for sharing dear Katie!

the beautiful things you create would fit in beautifully at Leola's!

I am looking forward to the Bluebells again this year in early April...they carpet the forest floor in heavenly blue

The Cherry blossoms here in Washington are also very special...ah spring :)

Oh.... I'll just have to make a point of getting down there soon! So happy you're on spring break and able to refresh and energize/ Can't wait to get together in person to gab away an afternoon!

Patti said...

Drool drool drool...I could move in and no one would EVER notice...Ahhhh- my day is complete- thanks! Anyway- to answer your question- I change out my accessories in my house from reindeer/winter to florally spring/summer. It is a breath of fresh air! Happy Spring and Happy Spring Break as well!

My goodness what a fantastic place. I could happily spend hours there. It looks like my idea of Heaven:))Spring is on it's way here in England but it is still rather cold with frost on the ground in the mornings. But...the daffodils are making a welcome and cheerful display and there are buds on lots of things. Happy Spring to you and thanks so much for leaving your lovely comments on my blog!!!!

I tell you, I don't get to shop at Leola's nearly often enough. Maybe this weekend...

Jeanie said...

Well, I sure wish I was near to Leola's because here in Michigan where it was maybe 32 yesterday, I am screaming for spring! That said, even from afar, I got a bit of inspiration and encouragement -- it will come!
