Ahhh, April

It has to be one my favorite months of the year.

I love seeing the beautiful wildflowers and the famous Texas Bluebonnets that paint our highways and country roads.

April temperatures are generally warm enough for us to open windows in the car and at home.  Oh, the feel and smell of fresh, April breezes!

Seeing sweet spring babies gives me a sense of renewal.

And April also means spring cleaning.....but let's not go there yet.
:-))

At The Shoppe, April tends to be one of our busiest times of the year.  I just love it!  
 
And with the launch of our enhanced online shopping experience, things just got busier and better than ever!  The addition of our linen and gauze clothing online is keeping us very very busy!!

April will be busy at the Farmhouse as well.  Last Spring we spent a lot of time making over the back porch and yard.  You can see photos and details about that project HERE.
So this year we have plans to "Springify" the front porch and walk among many other projects that have been awaiting their turn for some of our attention. :-)) 
 
How about you?  Are you working on any special April projects?

All months bring something special, and every month (and day, and hour) is a blessing in my eyes. 

But there is just something very special about April...

Beautiful! I'm seeing so many bluebonnets on the highways right now.

Laurie Anna, will you do me a favor? Don't laugh...I'm gonna be 50 soon. Will you make your pictures bigger? It's an option when you post the picture.

Still so very cold here. We are not making it out of the 30's. I can't decorate my porch just yet but yours is looking good. Dianntha

LaurieAnna,
As usual...your home and the store look beautiful. It's awesome that you are doing well with your online store. I can't wait to see your front porch when you are done.
