Ten Days and Counting

Just ten days until one of my favorite days of the year! Can you guess what it is? Maybe this sweet little specimen will give you a clue.

Yes! Ten days until spring!

I took my lab, Maggie, for a walk yesterday. It was drizzly and misty and gray, but the birds were singing sweet songs none the less. I think they know that spring is coming, too.

We used to sing a song in our preschool class that went something like this:

Spring is coming, spring is coming
How do you think I know?
Because I saw a robin
That's what tells me so!

I'm in love with the robin stamp from Nature Walk. It's just the way I picture robins...strutting across the yard with purpose, and then stopping, cocking their heads to the ground, and listening for the sound of wiggling worms.

Today's card is a little vintage, a little Somerset Studio. Do you ever get magazines published from Somerset Studio? They feature crafty vintage projects that often look like a bunch of found objects thrown together. I was really tempted to stamp a little crown on top of this bird's head, but I refrained...this time. (I don't know why, but birds and babies have to have crowns on their heads in those magazines!)

College son, Luke, is home for spring break this week. Today, we're going out to lunch and shopping. He's always up for a little fun, especially if food is involved. :)

Thanks for stopping by the cafe today!
