Signs of the Season

We had planned on leaving this morning for our little trip to Ashland but it has been put off till tomorrow due to ANOTHER SNOW STORM!! Yep, it is coming down. I decided to just focus on the signs of spring that continue to pop up inside!

Here is my Redemption tree finally done for this year. I did not get much input on it so I went with .....A cross at the top with a crown of thorns on it, roses and crystal drops to represent Mary's tears. If you have any other good ideas for it let me know!!


It is more beautiful in person! I was thinking maybe I could add small pieces of "grave cloth" (gauze?) with an image of Christ stamped on it??


This is my foyer. I have tons of stuffed animals and just decided they were all going to have a big Spring picnic here. They are a very cheerful greeting when you walk in the front door! My best bud, GinnySue is going to loan me her dig. camera to take on our Ashland trip so maybe I will get to post some pics of the great shops we find after all!!
Love and Blessings- LillySue

Oooooooo I love that little pink birdie in the first photo with the single egg. Your tree is beautiful, as is your animal's spring picnic. Hope you get to take your trip soon. ♥

LillySue, I hope you were able to make it on your trip. We just returned from a trip to the Oregon Coast and we had lots of rain! While we were gone our (Eastern Washington) had 4 inches of snow. It is still visible on the hills and mountains, but melted on the ground here. Yeah! We are going to get up to 50 something today. Heat Wave!!
