New Laptop, feeling well--I'm Back

It's been too long since I've post anything here! We had a very hectic holiday season with some nasty illness stuff and then it seems as though we've been going full-steam (with some ear infections, tubes, stomach flu in-between). 

Thankfully, the trees are blooming, we're starting our garden, I've planted some flowers, and Spring is really arriving (albeit slowly, with lots of rain!). 

I haven't had much time to hunt for Pyrex lately, but I have snagged a couple of new pieces that I love! I also have a beautiful Christmas dish that my mom is bringing to me when she visits next week! Here are some of my newest beauties, along with some of the crafts and reading I have been doing during the long cold winter! 

I can't take credit for my book wreath! My mom made this for me and I love it! 

This lovely oval casserole with turquoise birds was a birthday gift from my hubby!

The Baker Creek Seed Catalog arrive in January and I spent hours pouring over it and choosing which seeds to order. I love their company and what they are doing to preserve heirloom varieties. Check them out at Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds

I also kept up with some good reading! It's one of my dreams to be able to keep chickens where we live! Our city doesn't currently allow backyard hens, but I am hoping they will change their mind! 

My mom and I did do some Pyrex shopping when she came to visit in February. We found twin blue stripes bowls! She has one at her house too! She also bought me these super-tiny lime and pink bowls. One is missing a lid, but they are so adorable!
