Hello! Welcome to my "new" blog! I figured, since I have changed the name of my blog, I needed to change my blog's URL too! Bunny Rose Cottage is a part of my past. A very good part. I had so many wonderful memories in that home and in that part of my life. But my life has changed, a lot. And it is time to change my blog address too, not just the name :) Thank you so much for finding me here. I hope you will continue to follow my journey, here on this blog. I love all of my followers and I don't wamt tp lose any of you :) I merged all of the posts from my other blog to this one, so it is basically the same blog but with a different web address :) Love to you all and again, thank you!!

inspiration through the winter part 1...
Today is the coldest day in Michigan so far this winter. Actually, it is the coldest day we have seen in many many years! Minus nine degrees with a wind chill of minus 25. But at least the sun is shining bright! The kids are home from school again today. They have never had this many snow days!
Since I cant make winter go away, I find inspiration in my home to get through the cold days. The desk in my sitting room seems to be a favorite place for me to hang out and get lost in inspiring projects, magazines and thoughts. My desk is the place that holds my favorite reading items and light crafting supplies. I don't do heavy crafting there because I make such a mess! But I lay out my items, write down what I want to do, etc..
Right now, the January issue of JDA Living is sitting there opened to the page shown above. Though January doesn't scream spring (lol) the page above is a beautiful piece about spring and getting through the winter. Just beautiful and I love to read it from time to time.
I mentioned in my last post about a gift I bought for myself. A beautiful original painting by Kerrie of Sea Cottage. Everything arrived so beautifully wrapped!
Isn't this beautiful?? I had admired this in Kerrie's shoppe since last summer! It is called Wildflowers. It spoke to me and really tugged at my heartstrings. The simplicity of wildflowers, just so beautiful and unassuming. They will always have a special place in my heart. I am so glad I purchased this painting!! It is even more beautiful in person. The canvas is thick and even the sides are painted! I have it propped up on my desk for reassurance of warmer days to come.
I also purchased the roses sign. It is so perfect! Kerrie is beyond talented, check out her blog and shoppe if you haven't yet!
A pretty, tiny cupcake stand with a spring scene sits on the desk....
A few pretty item laid out for some spring crafts that I am working on...
I broke this post down in to a few so I will share more next time :)
I don't know if you noticed but in my blog header, I added the text, "My home, my soft place to fall". It better describes the feel of my blog going forward. Our home should always be our soft place to fall, No matter how big or how small.
I hope you all have a wonderful week!!
