It's Time For...


I Love Violets...
They're another positive sign
that Spring has offically arrived.

My backyard is full of clusters
of these teeny purple blossoms...
Aren't they Beautiful?!

Cute Chubby Cherubs
wrapping a bow around
a bunch of blossoms...

My backyard is not full of these
Awesome Sea Shells...

But my Dreams are full of them...
and seeing the Violets only lets me
know that Summer is coming...
and that means Sea Shells...

and Sand Castles...

I Love the Beach...
I'm very blessed to live near the Atlantic Ocean...

I'm also very blessed to have
many Sweet Blogging Friends...
Recently I was honored by my friend,
Kathy, from Kat Collects...
She passed along to me the Kreativ Blogger Award...

Thank you, Kathy! It's been a true
pleasure getting to know you better,
and I'm happy to call you my Friend.
For those of you who haven't had a chance to visit Kathy,
I encourage you to take some time to do so.
Not only is her blog breathtaking
and heartwarming, Kathy is too.


I visit many blogs, and am guilty of lurking, too...
but I do have my "favorites", as do most of you,
and mine are listed on my sidebar. I'd like to pass
this sweet award along to my favorite blogging friends...

y'all truly do have "Kreativ Blogs" and my life is
all the better for being able to know and visit y'all...

Another thing that I Love, is Embroidery...
Not only do I enjoy doing needlework,
but I also collect Vintage Linens...
Gotta Love these Adorable Fur-Babies!

I thought y'all might like it if I shared
some of the patterns from my collection...
Please let me know if you think this is something
you'd like to see each week in my Tuesday Tid-Bits.


What are you Dreaming about,
now that Spring has arrived?

God bless...

Until another time... Pearl

Please remember that
April is Autism Awareness Month
You may learn more about this here...

Thank You!

I LOVE Tuesday Tid-bits! I love that vintage card with the violets. It is a coincident that we both showed embroiderary patterns. Yours looks better than ours. I would love to see more of your collection every week. Thanks for this beautiful post. Hope you have a wonderful week. Twyla

Hi Pearl,
Congrats on the award, you certainly deserve many, many of them! I love violets too but it gets too sunny in our yard for them. I'm dreaming of working on the side yard (and hoping a little fairy will come take care of it all for me) better get going, right?
Happy night to you.
xoxo~Tracie

Michelle said...

I'm also dreaming of simple things, a sweet garden, my animals romping around in the secret garden of mine, a fresh cherry pie....oh now I'm hungry and need to cuddle with my sweeties! Hehe! Hope you had a wonderful, wonderful Easter!

I wish my yard had clusters of violets. Lovely post.

Lori said...

Hi Sweet Pearl! Hope this finds you doing well! My violets aren't bloming yet, but what makes them so special is that before I sold mom's home I transplanted some and they took! And as you know they have multiplied alittle so far! Sending hugs and love, Lori
