Give~Away Item Number Four

'Morning everyone~ We are still laden with ice all over the Island. I took some pictures but my camera doesn't do the ice fantasy justice. This is my little Weeping Caragana in the little garden at the top of our driveway. It is almost covered over with snow and the ice is hanging mercilessly all over it. It is hard to believe that in two months time, it will be bare with tiny buds of spring on it. I can't wait! My neighbor's trees across the street are still bent over with the weight of the ice, though they are not quite touching the ground any more.
We Islanders are so looking forward to Spring and the end of the white stuff!

Now, on to the next item in the give-away.....this little pin cushion. I spray-painted the little basket white, {it was two shades of brown originally}, took some left over fabric from my shower curtain and made the pin cushion. I edged the cushion with lace and, voila!
Please check back to my post on Tuesday, March the 3rd, for details to enter the Give-Away. I have three more items which I will share with you in an upcoming post so stayed tuned.
Have a lovely day everyone.
"Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls." Jeremiah 6:16


  1. Those are very cute creations of yours. They bring a smile to my face and I'm sure to others who visited as well with the cuteness :-)

  2. If it were sunny and warm you wouldn't want to be inside making all your sweet creations. So aren't we the lucky ones to see your inspiring work.
    I love the verse of scripture.
    I have seen it a couple of times today while blogging. What a good teacher I have in the Holy Spirit. He just knows I will need to read it again being estrogen depleted soul that I am now. lol

  3. Cute pincushion! Ah! spring I can't wait either but patience is a virtue.
    Take care,

  4. This is coming together so nicely! Marilyn xoxo

  5. Hi Sandi, I am sitting here looking at your beautiful pictures of the snow and shivering. Snow is so beautiful, but too much of it for a long time spells COLD!

    We had some snow this past Monday but it is all gone now and today I went for a walk without wearing a coat. Oh, yes, and my tulips are up through the ground.

    I wish I could package up some of the warmer weather and send it to you. What island do you live on? I think this was a very cold and snowy winter for Canada as I have been reading several blogs from up there.

    I hope that you see signs of spring soon. It always makes one feel a little happier and brighter to see a crocus come up from the soil.
