Artful Blogging Magazine

This week the challenges for Friday's Hunt hosted by Teresa are the letter 'E', week's favourite and sky.
I am excited to share that my blog header is featured in the 2016 spring issue of Artful Blogging magazine under 'favourite banners'. This is a great magazine for ideas, inspiration and some pretty amazing photography.
I have my blog designer Karen Valentine to thank for taking my photos and making such a pretty header.
This week's favourite: In the current issue of RURAL Winter Love magazine I wrote an article about creating a spring basket and featured one I made a couple of years ago. Above is a recent basket I put together with pots of bulbs, a primula and ceramic bird tucked in.  Very easy to do to get a jump on spring.
Sky: Sunrise and sunset as seen from the house in Florida we rent. We're off to stay there again soon and it will be a nice reprieve from shovelling snow and wearing boots.
I'll also be linking to Mosaic Monday.

  30. Congratulations on getting in with two magazines now. You do have a very pretty blog, beautiful layout. My favorite of your three is the Spring Basket which gives you a jump on Spring. You'll be getting a jump too in Florida. That sounds good. We won't get a jump but we take a break, a short reprieve with a little cruise. Of course we haven't gotten down into freezing her any, yet. My hibiscus is getting tired but it still is blooming orange every day.
