Be Prepared

Every month I have a motto.

From my Girl Scout days
I made a magnet for the refrigerator.

My dear friend gave me a stained glass kite.
She knows I love kites.

I laid my jade pieces out on my dresser tray.
They will look nice with my yellows and greens.
Each piece has meaning for me,
gifts from my husband and son.

Yet it is the kite earrings I am most excited about.
A find from the Yellowstone gift shop!
However March comes in I will be wearing my kite earrings.
It is my March first activity.
I really like kites!

Your kite earrings appear to be made of titanium!? I have fat titanium loops and matching bracelet that I LOVE. Light and gorgeous! Fun decorating!

Dear Sue,
The kite earings are made from titanium! I was so excited when I found these, in the the most unlikely place! When we travel I always like to get a piece of wearable art. Titanium is a wonderful metal, light as you said, and I think beautiful.
The jade butterfly came from a gallery in Victoria, B.C. My husband bought it for me last summer while we were on vacation.
I love to do up my house every month. Seeing the darling things come out and remembering different people and times in my life is always a thrill for me. March is very fun because of the colors, green and yellow are my favorites.
Plus I adore the kite motif.
Will you fly a kite this spring?
I have mine ready to go!

Beautiful earrings. Be prepared for lift off when you wear them. Your spirits will fly high...

Dear Lisa,
They are fun to wear. I bought them in 2000, so I have had them for a few years. I only wear them in March!
They are a bit wiggly and I do have to be aware as the tails will catch on my collar if I am not careful.
Kites are good!

Everything just looks so pretty. Lovely post Sherry.

Dear Cheryl,
Thank you! I redo all my dishes too! One of these days I will take pictures of the table settings and such. I used to do lots of entertaining.
I never wanted Corner to be about what I have. More about, "you too can feed the birds or the butterflies."
As I switch out to a new month and program of study I enjoy sharing some of the little joys.
I am looking forward to visiting you and seeing what charming ways you bring spring into your home. I will force forsythia for some of the vases. As soon as the daffodils are in bloom I will cut some for inside. I have hundreds of daffs. I save tulips for April...

It's March 1st. I wish you could be flying a real kite today. Along with wearing your kite ear rings!

Dear Mari-Nanci,
It was too windy for my kites on the 1st and today the 2nd!
At least wearing my kite earrings gave me the feeling of kite flying!
My kites stay up now until October. I will get them up one of these spring days! Hopefully at least once in March.
