Create Your Own Flowers

The colors of this thread reminds me of spring; with the  



random placement of these spools, like flower heads with green grass below.  O.K. - it's a stretch, but I do live in north central Wisconsin.  The only color I see outside now is white and I might mention, I woke to -16.   Let me have this one.  (smile)

Is it just me, or does this inspire you as well? 




Looking at all that vintage trim...inspires me to create something.   I have been painting lately, not felting or sewing.  I guess I need some "needle" therapy.  

So, as I wait for the real flowers to emerge from the cold, clay soil of my Ringle homestead...I need to remind myself that I can create my own.  

Creating your own flowers in any life challenge is a good lesson.  At times we might be in a "blizzard" of life - trials of some sort.  Please remember that even in the cold and hardness of that time, you can create your own flowers.  A positive attitude, humble spirit, repentant nature - with a good amount of tears....will help your flowers to bloom.   

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

VERY pretty, and yes, I can totally see it! But then I also live in Wisconsin. What's the deal anyway! I thought we were supposed to have warm temps this week. Grrrr. Thanks for the colorful photos. They are always such a cheering sight!
