Springtime and a Winner!

I think we are all winners this time of year if you live in an area where spring is knocking on your door!

Today was the warmest day we've had in a very long time!  And when the weather turns warm and sunny you can't help but feel sunny inside too!

Now that it's getting warmer I went out and bought some pansies, because pansies say springtime to me.  Over the weekend we visited a local garden center and bought these beautiful flowers.

Then while I was out finding things for our daughter's bedroom re-do I found these super cute pots at Tuesday Morning!

Tomorrow I plan to get my hands dirty and do a little gardening and start sprucing this place up a bit!

There are crocks and pots and planters to fill!

And cool settings to try out on my camera!

But enough about flowers, dirt, and sun we have winners to announce!

The winners of the Porcelain Numeric Orbs are...
drum roll please!

Thanks for an opportunity to win your giveaway!

    I am so excited about winning the orbs! I am, right now, at this very minute, doing a happy dance and getting funny looks from Mr. Sissie.
