*** SPRING ***

Bought this cute "SPRING" at How Quaint on Friday. Perfect and cute!

Today the golf course opened and here is the very first golf ball of the season in our front yard. Maybe this year I'll keep count as to how many end up in our yard. "FORE"!!!



Since it's Spring and I have over 500 posts and followers... AND I've been digging thru my totes I thought a little giveaway was in order. Nothing too exciting. Just leave a comment and I'll pick a name this weekend. Only rule: Do Not "spread" the word. It's just for a "blogging friend". Thanks.

The weather is awesome! My tulips are coming up and the trees are budding. Lilacs too! I even had to get out my flip-flops this week with the temps in the high 70's! Record setting days!

I did some SPRING cleaning yesterday. The living room is looking fresher. It's a nice "quiet" week and I'm enjoying that.

HAPPY SPRING!!!
Warmly,

deb

Happy Spring! You should paint those golf balls pretty pastel colors and load up an Easter basket with them. Then you could keep a look out for a large standing rabbit that you could get a small golf club for and stand him next to the basket. Hmmm I just might do that myself lol
big spring hugs,
Cheryl

Oh Deb, what a very sweet giveaway. It's always fun to celebrate. Do you keep the golf balls that end up in your yard?? Maybe you could do a re-sale ;-)

What a darling SPRING you have greeted us with. I agree ... snag the golf balls, paint them & use them for your decor outdoors.

Love your header Deb.

What a fun idea with the spring! I have a few springs out in my workshop...now I will have more ideas running around in my head! Thanks for sharing the fun! =D

vivian said...

oh golf ball memories! we live right near a golf course. my boys used to walk the edge and pick up all the ones that crossed over. they would get buckets full and then sell them to the golfers for a quarter a piece! It was quite a lucrative business for them! lol
I love your spring all done up for spring! I keep seeing those "moss" covered bunnies and think about buying one.. maybe next time!
have a great week

I need a spring! How cute! It is an amazing season here in MN...except I want to dig in the dirt and its too early! A couple of weeks ago, I couldn't get in my back door from all the snow!

Happy Spring! It's almost official!

Spring is definitely here! It was in the 80s today in Illinois (almost too warm). I've been wearing flip-flops for a few days now. You are so nice to offer a giveaway. Happy Spring!

Hi Deb! This is Deb, also! My first time here. I really like what I've seen so far and now I'm off to see more!

Jane said...

Happy Spring to you too! Glad you guys are experiencing some nice weather. I remember when we were house hunting in MN (back in '96). It was the last weekend in March and was snowing like crazy!!
Enjoy the warmth!!

I am unexpectantly off of work tomorrow, so maybe I'll "Spring" up a little around here.

NanaDiana said...

Well, I wanted to pop in and say Hi...and I see you have a giveaway...but please don't throw my name in the hat. Since the first of the year I have won several giveaways and I just can't take the guilt!;>) and...so...please let someone else win.

However, I DO have a suggestion for you. I think you should set up a little stand and sell those golf balls right out by the fairway! lol
Have a wonderful night- xo Diana

Blessed Serendipity said...

I love your spring "spring". That is really cute. I think you should take Nana Diana's advice about selling the golfers their golf balls back. Cute giveaway too.

Isn't the weather crazy? We had snow on St Pat's Day here in the PNW. But today is sunny and G-sales are starting up early this year. Yeah! I love all of your decorating ideas.

I love this warm Spring weather we are having in Virginia. Not too hot and not too cold. I just hope winter doesn't return.

I am so jealous that your lilacs are blooming! I am making do with lilac candles. I have wonderful memories of picking armfuls (literally) of lilacs for my Grama's house. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!

Hi, please ask your followers to stop talking about warm weather. We woke up to snow! We hardly ever get snow in Portland, Or... especially in spring.
Keep count on the golf balls. I'm sure you could use them for a craft project.
Has one ever broken a window? Those things are a bit dangerous.

Celestina Marie said...

How fun to visit and be greeted with your lovely springtime post. I bet you will have a large collection of golf balls. Do they ever come through a window? LOL I've heard of this before.
What a sweet giveaway. I would love to enter. I'm starting one tomorrow if you'd like to enter mine too.
Happy Spring,
Hugs, Celestina Marie
p.s. love your blog header.

Little Susie Home Maker said...

Wow! post and even more followers! You are very successful! Congratulations! I love that moss bunny and spring, it is so neat looking! Maybe you should think of a fun way to collect the golf balls, and keep adding them to a basket or container on your porch, maybe?
The weather here has been warmer, but really windy. You have a fun Spring, and thank for a chance for your give away! So sweet, Deb.
Blessings,
Susie

Ric Rac and Polka Dots said...

Oh my goodness I think I would be afraid to walk out my front door! I agree you should take them and do something - hey maybe sell them! Thanks for visiting and leaving the nice comment on my little girl picture. She is so much cuter in person but the glare prevented me from taking a very good picture. I love her though!
Hugs,
Julie
