A beautiful art gift & glimpses of spring ~

A wonderful gift arrived in the mail....a gorgeous piece of art created by Pam Carriker! I won a little contest that she had and now am the proud owner of her artwork!! Just look at the detail that she's's truly incredible and I'm SO PROUD to add it to my studio as inspiration!!! To own someone's art is to have a part of them with you ~
Thank you so very much sweet Pam, I love it!

A beautiful, aged bird bath that I was able to get at a yard sale last weekend!
The bird's base is cracked but I don't care :)

Some herbs that I found at Walmart for my husband for Easter ~ he loves cooking with them...

New leaves adorning the trees ~

And a worried little munchkin getting a bath from her mom....and 3 weeks old today!

Wishing you a wonderful Monday dear friends!
xxoo, Dawn

Dawn Dear,

Your blog is so inspiring and romantic, I Love many of the same things as you and you blog them so beautifully. I have both of the magazines and love those same pages.

Your baby is awesome and your sweet gifty box is just over the top. I can only dream of creating one in reality but it is in my head. The findings in it are so so neat. I love to find vintage as I cannot afford to buy new.
Smiles, Cyndi and thanks for the smiles truely~

Thanks for sharing your spring thoughts with us.

The art piece is beautiful! Her business tag is really pretty all by itself.

Little Clara will love seeing her bathing photos in about 16 years ;D

Hi Dawn,

Always, you're blog is a treasure.

I love the gift you received; so very pretty! However, not nearly as pretty and sweet as Miss Clara!

I borrowed your fairy in a jar idea and made one for my Mom for Easter. It turned out so sweet and cute! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful idea on your blog and in Somerset!

Best wishes and high hopes to you,
