An Up-cycled Denim Flower for Spring...


Hello everyone and 
Happy Spring!
Isn't it just so exciting to see 
those little green shoots
coming up around the yard?
And my, oh my! The birds are singing
such happy little songs. 

I hope that your spring is shaping
up to be a happy one. 
Filled to the brim with many blessings.

I find that when I'm feeling blue,
if I practice a little

~ GRATITUDE ~
****
it helps to change my outlook.

I did some cleaning up
and watering around the yard
and in my herb garden this morning.

I'm not feeling very well and so
it felt good to be out in the sun!
I've been using my essential oils like
crazy and they help so much. 
I'm very thankful to have them.

I have a little spring project that I'd like to share.
I really enjoy re-using and re-making things.
And denim is so fun to work with!

I was going through my scrap drawer one day
and decided to just gather some different
pieces of random things to try to 
put something together.
And I came up with this little sign 
and the flower seemed perfect for spring!
It's made of a side seam 
from an old pair jeans.  

I really like the quote. 
We are all so unique and
shine with a special light and have 
a beauty all our own!
Id' love to hear about any projects that you 
have going for spring! Are you planting and 
re-arranging plants outside yet? I know that it's a 
little early for some to be out but it's 
 great fun to be planning, isn't it?

Thank you so much for stopping by.
 Wishes for a peaceful weekend
and I hope you feel beautiful as well!

Hello Tamara,
I hope this creation in blue denim and lace has lifted your spirits.
It really is very sweet. It is such a lovely feeling hearing all the Spring bird sounds isn't it.
Instead of planting Spring flowers I have been inside creating a new lace book/journal for a client and then sweeping up the Autumn leaves everywhere but not all as I love seeing them as they fall and leave their own pattern.
Autumnal hugs to your Spring heart,
Suzy

Tamara,
This is too sweet. I really love this. Very cute. It is still chilly here in Chicago land but the sun is out and it is suppose to warm up this week for us. So I think Spring is trying to appear. Have a great week end.

Hi Tamara, hope you are feeling better very soon. We have had a crazy week of weather here, first of week was sunny and in the low 70's, so we worked out side and enjoyed the sunshine. Middle of the week we had storms that took down some of our large walnut trees and today it has been snowing....but it is melting and suppose to reach the high 40's. Looking for sunshine again soon.
Love your wood and denim with the lace and such a good quote. Blessings to you for a wonderful weekend.

Hi Suzy,
Your autumn leaves sound so lovely! Fall is probably my favorite time of year, and yet, I do enjoy the spring so very much. I am an admirer of your lovely books and how wonderful that you can share your gift with others. I am feeling much better, thank you! And thank you for your visit and kind words.
Enjoy your wonderful, fall day!

Hi Linda,
I'm so sorry about your Walnut trees! I hope nothing else was damaged. That is interesting weather. Spring can't be too long in coming. :) I am feeling much better today. Thank you so much. It's always a pleasure to have you visit and I appreciate your comments very much! Have a beautiful Sunday.
