April Showers

 “… millions long for immortality who don’t know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.” ~ Susan Ertz 

What do you get when you spend a quarter on galoshes at Good Will, wash two empty tin cans and collect some spring blooms from your yard?

Smiles. Lots of Smiles.

    I love those beautiful flowers in the rain boots. I think I need to visit the Salvation Army store and have some fun. Hope you enjoy your weekend!

    Love this idea, Deborah. Perfect choice of flowers, as well.
    I will be sending you some photos soon… We are finished with “Phase 1” of “The Loft” at the barn. It is beyond breathtaking. I can’t wait until you see it. :)
    Wishing you beautiful Spring days ahead….

    I think those cheery yellow boots are made for walking….right to my front door.

    On Tuesday I leave for Minnesota to celebrate Grandma Jingles 90th birthday. It is so hard to not keep going all the way to New Jersey. :)

    Wow Deborah – these look like images that walked right off the pages of ‘Country Living’! Gorgeous; simply beautiful.

    Great idea! If this doesn’t say Spring Time, I don’t know what does!!

    Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful! Great photos too! I just purchased a pair of black wellies at the Salvation Army. This is such an inspiration! It’s an unseasonably warm day. I just had my tea on the patio in the sun and could smell the lilacs. Heaven!

    I live in an old farmhouse too and this would be perfect for a display on my back porch! Thanks for the inspiration!


    PS I love your photography!

    What a lovely blog and your yellow boots filled with tulips are so delightful! Thanks for your kind visit and Happy Spring.

    What a great reminder that small, simple things can be the best things. And to look at things through a different lens. Thanks for the smile.

    How fun – I do this with my girls old ladybug boots! Great score on the boots too!
