DO YOU KNOW YOUR ALPHABET?

Yippee, it's Thursday! We're over the "hump" and it's VTT!

Lookie here - my first crocus, and Saturday is the first day of Spring! It gives you the feeling that all's right with the world!

I purchased this tin last Fall, and it's one of those "feel good" items. It has the cutest alphabet pictures all around the top and sides. If I had a little kid, this would be in their room!

That is the cutest tin ever! I love the red and the everything else too! The things that they chose to represent each letter kind of crack me up... not exactly what you'd find on flash cards today, but so sweet.

That's a cute tin.

I always forget to buy bulbs in the fall. Last year I bought a couple of bulb plants that were already flowering. I forgot about them until I saw some unexpected plants poking up out of the ground this week.

It certainly is a "feel good" item. "A home is where the heart is, and this goes in my home" item.
