The Rustle of Spring continues



Spring in the garden (but still no sun).



Spring in a cup (but not quite in my step)



Spring blossoms on Miss Blossom (and in my Etsy shop).



I realised when looking back on my blog that it was a year ago that I first started making these



- it's time for some flowers.

No Way! Has it only been a year? Do I have one of your first ones -- 'cause it seems like I've had mine forever! Those new ones are just beautiful!

Spring has definitely sprung here at Ragged Roses. The colours of the season are so pretty and reflected in your lovely corsages.

Lovely spring flowers - even without the spring sun. It will come! Your handmade flowers really are pretty - dainty and ruffley - like that!

Heidi said...

Ah...primrose time...

We too have our touches of spring mixed with grey skies. It is supposed to turn cold and perhaps snow on the weekend. But still the air feels different so we know it really is spring. Have you been out doing any work in your garden? I hope to see more of your garden in the coming season on your blog. I picture you with a lovely big garden unlike my tiny patch. :)

Hugs ~

Hello Kim, spring feels as if its struggling to really begin doesn't it (snow forecast for the weeknd?!). Not long before ebverythign will be truly brusting into life though.
I love the corsages! I visited you Etsy shop and wondered if I can put in a special request for a blue one, like the one on your blog - if you so requests that is? I've just bought a lovely Wedgewood blue top so a corsage like the one you featured would go perfectly with my jacket when I wear the top.
Best wishes

What a springtime blog today - I am sitting here in the office having a lunchbreak and a little blogging peek, the sun is streaming in the window - I wonder what they would say if I said I am just going out to sit amongst the daffodils. I keep going onto Persephone books from your link and I simply cannot decide which bbok to buy. Looking forward to your thoughts on your new ones. I had the Children who lived in a barn from a school prize - with the same picture and I remember learning about hayboxes at Girl Guieds and I already knew about them from that book. I remember thinking how thrilling it must be even then to have your own house. Hmm I think I had better have my yoghurt and get back to work - love the colours of your brooches.

Pretty. So simple to look at, timeless elegance captured in a twist of fabric.

Hi,

Those brooches are just beautiful. I'm currently travelling with my husband and another couple at the moment. We have a wedding whilst we are here in Fiji and one of those brooches would have just been perfect with my outfit.
