Somehow it seems so fitting that one of the first colors to greet us with the promise of springtime is one as cheerful and bright as yellow.
I've been dreaming of spring all weekend... my gardening seeds arrived in a package Friday and I spent a relaxing hour sitting on the picnic table working on the garden plan while Justus was hammering away on our soon to be chicken house.
A few cheerful yellow buds placed on the dining room mantel bring in warmth and sunshine and almost make me forget that it's still cold outside and only February.
Do you remember the dough bowl my father-in-law made me? Well, he actually made us two and just recently gave this one to us. (I know, could I be any luckier?) This one is a bit wider than the other and was made from a piece of cherry.
The contrast of colors in the wood is beautiful and I knew immediately it would be perfect used as a centerpiece on our dining room table. As I'm sure you do, I treasure handmade items like this, even more so when it's made by someone special to us.
My husband snapped this picture of Rosetta and I this afternoon while we were all enjoying the last couple hours of sunshine and I was busy picking yellow flowers. My little Rosie is growing up...
I hope you have a wonderful week!
