Sweet Trucker Brought Me Spring & Winner Announced

I almost forgot to announce the winners of last weeks drawings for various tea bags. We have five winners total and the first one is: Annie, Tammy, The Faveros, Lynette and Laurie. Congratulations to all the winners that were chosen. Winners were chosen by Random Integer, but for the life of me I cannot remember how to copy and paste that picture(s) over here. Take my word for it ladies! Thanks to everyone who entered to win and I hope to do it again very soon. I'll be contacting the winners for their address.Delete


I do believe I am married to the sweetest man on earth. No if's, and's or but's about it, this time around I found a keeper! He's been through a lot with me since we got married and especially the last few months with me being so sick, but today he surprised me once again. Trucker always amazes me with his surprises and this time was no different. You see this weekend he brought me Valentine's Day early. He knew I needed a little pick me up as I've been feeling so down and out. Just not my chirpy usual self and let me tell you, this darned weather isn't helping me any at all! We are supposed to be getting another 4-6 inches here tonight and tomorrow. Now I know this in no way is like the rest of the US seems to be getting right now, but for us here in Arkansas, it's a lot. So without further ado......................

Didn't I tell you? The sweetest man to walk this earth!

Well after shedding a small tear or two I ate almost the entire box of candy! Of course I shared it with him, RugRat 1 and 2. This means now that I will have to make many many trips up and down our staircase this next week, but it's all worth it.

After smelling the intoxicating blooms it made me long for spring in the worst way possible. However, looking over and admiring my spring mix made me remember that hopefully God will bring us spring like weather very soon. It also made me decide to do today's mosaics in spring flowers.

Today (as I do every Monday) I'm joining Mary @ The Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. Mary is such a gracious hostess to do this for all of us each week. After you've enjoyed and dreamed about what spring will be bringing by viewing my post be sure and head over to Mary's and enjoy all the other wonderful Mosaics that is offered today. I am also joining in with Sally @ Smiling Sally for her Blue Monday. So be sure and go by and see all the gorgeous Blue posts at Smiling Sally's. Better yet, take part in them yourself. It's really very easy to do.

Tonight Big Huge Labs Mosaic Maker refused to work for me, so I decided to try out using Picasa 3. I had this already downloaded on my computer and have really never used much about it at all. I wasn't even sure I could do a mosaic with it. But by golly I could. I actually like these better than using Big Huge Labs. So once again here's my tribute to spring.............

What a sweet hubby! I love your mosaics, your hummingbirds are so pretty. I only see the Rubythroated Hummer here and I would love to see the other kinds.

such variety! beautiful color!
It is so refreshing to see the colors of life!
I posted a few mosaics on the raising of butterflies this past summer just to get back into life - everything is so blah here, no storms, no melt, just cold piles of dirty snow, with grey white skies!
