Hey there bloggin buddies!
Happy Friday
Happy Weekend
We've been having 60-70 degree weather
it's so wonderful
I'm longing for Spring

anxious to fill my blue Ball jars with pretty posies

re-arrange my back patio with pots of fragrant herbs
and lovely flowers

wishing I had the space to have a vegetable garden....
my favorite part of summer is the fresh veggies!
would you die to have this spread...

I love this porch
I would SO add a swing ASAP
but it is calling my name
(and I would always have fresh lemonade for my BFF's!)

This week I found this new magazine...
(OK...New to me maybe not you)

have you seen it?
the UK Edition of Country Living
I love it!

Spring Inspiration on every page!

so happy right now

can you imagine having this as your view?
to all my UK friends...I'm so jealous right now
I so want to plan a trip to the English Countryside

(all images are from Country Living UK)

It's Friday night
I'm in for the night with Sweet Hannah
flipping through my lovely magazine for the 20th time ( at least)
and planning my Saturday afternoon around
heading to Borders to pick up the current issue

I can not wait for this....
Sandra & I are changing JUNK WILD's space
 up for spring this week so I'm
looking forward to some new inspiring images!

Hope you all are having a wonderful weekend so far!
Thanks so much to all you sweeties that made a visit to my friend
you gals are the best!
If you haven't been over  please check out her new blog!
