Monday Love: Cherry blossoms

 Little spring treasures
Some photography, playing with white blossoms, a shocking pink felted bag and a green tea-bottle i had to buy in a café last week - just because it looked so nice! And some sea-creatures i found at the flea-market. The white blossoms have been blown away by April winds since - a reminder to really cherish and enjoy everything, before time is dancing away with it! Hope your week starts smooth and lovely!

The winner of my giveaway - names were put in the pink bag and picked out of it -
is Poppies and sunshine, a blog i really like. I'll send you a mail on how to proceed with your photo to get the jigsaw. Congrats!

Enjoy all the sunshine you have, and I hope you have a stress-free week. LOVE THE PHOTOS!!! Anita

  20. Good morning CHERRY BLOSSOM GIRL! Oh Martina, we are still having awful weather! TODAY IS MORE COLD but with rain, not snow, like on MONDAY!! Yes, this is to be expected because I always remember tiny little plants that start growing sometimes get a blanket of snow upon them; it is the nature of things I guess! BUT I ONLY HAVE 6 weeks left of school and I AM SO HAPPY!!!!! I want to play with all of you in blogland!!!! Thank you for visiting dearest; you are sooooooo wonderful!!!! BISOUS, Anita

  21. Thank you Sweet Martina for your encouraging words. I appreciate you. BTW, chocolate, tea & a cupcake sounds nice...which is funny because that is what I've been craving/eating (ha). My baby is kicking me saying he likes it too! Hugs.
