A blessing!

I have to share this little testimony. A sweet friend of mine brought me little signs of Spring in the form of the Mimosa flower this week. It blooms just one day and the scent it brings into the home is overwhelming! And everytime I forgot to take a photo! I had this thought in my heart that I wanted to share it with you on this blog, but my chance was gone. Yesterday morning as I was in the office, the phone rang.
It was my neighbour and she wanted to give me a huge bunch of Mimosa from her tree!! Now she never does this, so I was not only overwhelmed with her kindness but I knew in my heart that God wanted to bless me! Just simple, the conviction was there.
So I am sharing this bunch of God's creative goodness with you today. The first signs of Spring in this gorgeous yellow color!

Another little thing I wanted to share are these Cameo bowls I bumped into in the Sales. A little more than one dollar each. Luckily I was able to buy six of them. I was just looking for some unusual bowls!

And lastly here is my nature card:

Talking about yellow, the daffodils have shown themselves again and all the trees and shrubs etc. are showing signs of new life. I love that, its so uplifting.

I hope you have an uplifting weekend!


  1. How wonderful! Love that your spring has started and thank you for sharing the beautiful picture. We have awhile before we will see the spring flowers peeking out at us.

  2. Your mimosa looks so much like some of the wattles we have in Australia which usually flower in winter.
    I love the card, too.

  3. The mimosa branches are beautiful! The bowls are so precious. Your card is gorgeous - and inspiring, too. Will have to give the grid design a try some day.

  4. Adorable card Jacqueline! I love all the signs of spring too and am eagerly awaiting my bulbs opening in the garden ;) Your mimosa is stunning.

  5. What a wonderful blessing for you--and for us, thanks for sharing. I love those bowls, also a blessing as they are fabulous!And last, but not least--your card is stunning! Have a wonderful day.

  6. What beautiful flowers, friends and neighbors!!!

    Just a bunch of snow over here, still..
    But yesterday we got to see blue skies.. now THAT is nice!

    And the cameo bowls!!!! As Cath at the Moxie World would say....

  7. Wow, you are truly blessed. Thanks for sharing the picture of the flowers---and especially for sharing the story. What a find with the cameo bowls! Love the card, too. Your style is so soft and elegant---very soothing!

  8. Your testimony put tears in my eyes. A beautiful bouquet! Your cameo bowl is lovely. I have never seen one like that. I love your beautiful card.
