Spring has sprung!  I received the most beautiful May Day “basket” this afternoon!  Our home is listed for sale and I spent all day cleaning and scrubbing.. just as we left for an afternoon showing, I noticed the most exquisite Iris in a lovely vase on the front porch. 

A mystery?! 

I love surprises! 

April is but a blur of house preparations, cleaning and organizing.  During all the madness of remodeling and packing half the house away for “better showings”, my mind was busy planning this blog.  I am so happy to have such a wonderful way to start the new month of May with this little colorful surprise.

It’s the inspiration for at least a dozen posts, devoted to the color purple!  Check back, I am working on some fun things to inspire a decorating, painting, scrapping, sewing frenzy.. with the color purple.
