Remember how I said I was embracing Winter?
Not any more!
Today I flung open the doors and welcomed Spring with open arms.
Well not literally…it’s only 27 degrees! Instead, I exercised my decorating creativity and paper crafting skills to make a fun pennant banner embellished with colorful birds and music pages from vintage hymnals.
Who knew that an old window would make such a fabulous gift?
Those of us who live in the North have another month and a half of Winter, regardless of what good ol’ Phil has to say about it.
The snow has been flying most of the day and the forecast is for freezing rain in the morning.
I’m going to ignore it and think Spring. You too?
I’m going to sing!
Sing like the birdies.
Since I’ve been hearing the birds sing in the morning when I walk, and since Bluebirds have come visiting, I’m pretty sure that Spring is here….regardless of the calendar or the temperature.
We need more music in our lives.
If you want to be extraordinary….you gotta sing!!
Sing HIS praises.
Sing the psalms,compose hymns and songs inspired by the Spirit,
and keep on singing—sing to God from hearts full and spilling over with thankfulness.
Colossians 3:16 (The Voice translation)
Are you inspired to sing?
Don’t tell me you don’t have a singing voice. We were all created to sing the praises of our Creator. So, if you don’t like hearing your voice…sing in your heart. Joy will rise.
I love waking up with a song on my heart in the morning? Does that happen to you too?
Spring has come to my home.
Spring has been splashed all over this sentimental vintage window dressed in pennant banners and embellished with vintage hymnal pages and paper birds. What do you think of this whimsical burst of Spring?
Thanks for popping by! I love reading your thoughtful words…please be sure to leave a few. They will be like a warm hug in my day.

I’m putting together a tutorial I’ve put together a tutorial here. These were the first pennants I’ve ever created and since I had to figure it out, I thought that I would share my tips with you in an upcoming post.
