    Your link for Our Southern Home is incorrect. I believe there is a c (that should not be there) right before the .com

      Thanks Kathy, I checked the link is correct :)

    Oh, Mary….
    I love living in the tropics …but when I see things like this, I really miss spring on the mainland!

    Thank you for sharing your lovely spring ideas!

  15. March 18, 2014 at 3:42 pm

    That was a breath of fresh air! It all looks beautiful, Mary.
    I have to bin my SPD things before I think about Easter. Still pretty cold here, but not snowing!

  16. March 18, 2014 at 5:21 pm

    Holy Moly, Mary…these were just wonderful to see again. Many I remembered but several are new to me as well. I’ll have to open each one in its own window so I can peruse each one at leisure.
    Wonderfully inspiring!!!!

  17. March 18, 2014 at 5:36 pm
