Happy Spring sweet friends ~

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.~

Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant"

Came the Spring with all its splendor
All its birds and all its blossoms,
All its flowers, and leaves, and grasses.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

Anne Bradstreet

Today is Emily's due date.....and we wait. I'm still working on the studio ~ this is taking me forever! But hopefully it will be wonderful when I'm finished. It's spring here in Georgia and I'm hoping that it's getting warmer where you are as well. If not now, hopefully soon!

Happy Friday and Happy Spring my dear friends ~

xxoo, Dawn

I know you can't wait to see your little angel. Hang in there, she will be here soon.
Spring is here in Fort Worth, everything is blooming and such wonderful warm weather this week.
My wisteria is in full bloom, I have it on my blog, if you get time take a look. It is awsome. Gods, handiwork is the best.

The first thing I thought this morning was, "Did Clara arrive yet?" I had to dash over and see. Still praying for your sweet to arrive safely. What a wonderful blessing, new life in spring!

Isn't is just amazing how many of us are wating with you for Sweet Clara to arrive?
My older son, Michael was born on his due date~December 17th. Contractions started at 8:05am and he entered this world at 9:45pm. I know it is rather rare, but it does happen. So make sure you are dressed and ready to go~~woo-hoo!

Happy Spring, sweet pea!Hugs,

Hi Dawn,
Sharing your excitement for this new little angel to come into your world. You will be amazed at your love for her the moment you lay eyes on her. There is not handiwork greater than that of a little babe! A miracle in your life! Your new studio is looking great. I'm so happy for you to have this new larger space to create. My prayers are with you all for a safe and healthy delivery of Clara. Blessings, Linda
