Lavender Tea Cozy and Indigo Bunting....I Love Spring!












Finished hooking my tea cozy from Primitive Spirit (Karen Kahle) and will get to the assembly part soon.  I simply LOVE this little piece.  Started it at the Boat House Hook In, and haven't put it down.  I tried to follow her color scheme, because it just grabbed me, and I didn't want it any different.  This, with my Pretty Chicken Kitchen rug, will be my kitchen updates for the year.  Lots cheaper than new appliances, counters, and tile!   I am really anxious to begin a new pillow design, so not sure if I can wait to begin hooking again.  I'm one of those hookers who needs to finish one project before I move on to the next.  But.......enough about hooking......I jumped on getting this post done, because below you'll see an indigo bunting that was at my feeder a bit ago, and I just had to share it with you.  The photo is a bit blurred because I had to take it through the kitchen window, and the little darling kept moving about.  These tiny beauties are a sure sign of spring at our place.  Sometimes I've seen them all over the drive, and it literally looked like bright blue paper had been tossed about.

















Well....off to do some yoga, and then head out to a wonderful nursey in Ash Grove to load up on annuals for the pots.  Enjoy this lovely springy Friday!

Love your tea cozy. What a great day to get plants in the ground. This nice rain will do wonders for them. I went to Steinert's yesterday & wanted everything. It's so different then going to a Lowe's. Have a good weekend. Jan

I can see why you love the colors in the tea cozy! They are fabulous! The little bluebird on the top is an indigo bunting, yes? We sight them here once in a great while but they are rare. They always take your breath away and make you marvel at the colors in nature and the beauty! Can't wait to see your next design Dulcy! Enjoy your spring planting! Cathy G

Dulcy, I love your lavender tea cozy. You may get me to drinking tea yet!!!
I've only seen indigo buntings when I lived on a little farm out by Republic. Never in town! You are so lucky to have country in the city!

Oh, that blue bird. Well, it's actually a blue jay, isn't it? I dunno. I don't really know my birds. I do know beauty though. That one surely qualifies, whatever kind it is.
