Fantasy Shopping Saturday with the Fire Divas

OK.... What happened to "Spring"? I'm not complaining...I'm really thankful for dry pavements, bright sunshine, and no snow!  It's  just I don't remember seeing "Spring".  Almost all the trees are in full bloom. The crab apple tree has flowered, and the petals have fallen, leaving the pavement a really pretty pink.   Somehow, I never saw the flowers on the tree itself.  The grass is a "lushy" green and the only remnant of what should be Spring? ------ my flowers that generally bloom this time of year.   And although I appreciate the weather that we're having... I still want to experience Spring. I know, no better place to feel the gentle warmth of a Spring sun,  the soft colors of early blooming flowers, or the gentle breeze of the early morning, than a trip to the Fire Divas Etsy and Artfire Shops.  Join me,... just in case you missed Spring too! ;-)

Fantasy Shopping Saturday with the Fire Divas

Tomorrow is probably my favorite day of the year.  A chance to show my mother how important she is to me and... a chance for my children to do the same.  It's the one day of the year, that expressly belongs to those who have given birth, inherited, or adopted children.  It belongs to those who love unconditionally, and would give the ultimate sacrifice. And it belongs to a group that goes unnoticed.  Those who have not given birth, but have loved, sacrificed and given a "Mother's Love" to a rescued puppy or kitten, cared for the sick and the shut in, and those that need a wink, a hug, or a simple smile.  To all of you, I wish you the best Mothers Day ever!  And my gift to you is this "Visual Card" from the Fire Divas!

What is a Mother?
AbieLyn ~ Abigail Castagnaro
