Be Inspired Wednesday Showcase

I'm going to try to refrain from screaming, but for some crazy reason they are predicting cold weather again for the remaining of the week, with a chance of snow on Friday. Can you believe it? I guess there will be some of you out there trying to hold back with me. what's up with this? Glad I haven't invested in tons of flowers yet...evidently being behind this year may work in my favor!

OK, enough of the mini-rant...
and on to some fun links from last week.

Kristen from Sophia's shared her group trip to North Carolina with the

Love this Chippendale Chair Cushion Redo

    It is suppose to be getting colder here in Chicago this week end with rain. I hope no snow. I so want to start planting!!!! It was gorgeous today and in the 80's. Why can't it just stay this way!!!!

  15. weather guy says 2 more weeks of abnormal the great features, debra:)

  16. Oh that's the pits. It's nice here but I know we're not out of the woods yet. Right when we think the coast is clear we always get hit again. Beautiful features.

  17. Oh that's the pits. It's nice here but I know we're not out of the woods yet. Right when we think the coast is clear we always get hit again. Beautiful features.

  18. Also, I meant to say how much I like your new header!!!

  19. SNOW? You poor thing! Hopefully it won't happen! High Point is within driving distance for me....I don't know WHY I have never gone. Maybe next year!

  20. I notices your new header, too - gorgeous! Thanks for all the beautiful inspiration!

  21. I totally understand the rant Debi - we here in Colorado are so sick of our Spring being ruined with cold and snow. Although we have been lucky to get a few days here and there nice and warm but I want to plant and I can't with snow every stinking' Tuesday. Hopefully yesterday will be the end of it. We should be grateful for the moisture which we need but it doesn't keep me from ranting - tee hee. Have a wonderful day!

  22. I'll scream right along with you. We're going through another cold and snowy couple days here too. It seems Mr. Winter just doesn't want to go away.

  23. SNOW! WOW! We're having rain, rain, and more rain right now. It was cold here for April last weekend but it did thunder that day in February. My Grandfather taught me when it thunders in February it will be cold in April on that same day. And it usually turns out right. Hope you have better weather soon. In Mississippi we say, If you don't like the weather today, wait tomorrow will be different! LOL! Have a blessed day.

  24. I was planning a trip up to Clarksville Missouri on the river to their annual town wide antique textile event, and I think the Missouri rain and maybe snow will put a huge damper on the event, my friends are backing out due to sand bags and the rain

    I haven't went and got my bedding plants yet, seems like last couple years it's cold for Mother's day

    Here's hoping a nice sunny weekend , next week end in Missouri

  25. Hi Debra,

    Thank you so much for featuring my post on my romance with red! I hope you see some sunny skies soon! We've had a beautiful spring here on the island after an unusually rainy and cold winter!


  26. Debra,
    As a fellow Missourian... I feel your pain! I can't believe snow in May!!! It's sleeting rain right now and we expect 8" of snow tonight and tomorrow!!
    I worked in the garden all weekend. I took pictures yesterday when I heard about the coming snow storm. I hope it doesn't do to much damage to my gardens.
    Have a wonderful day!

  27. Debra,
    As I watched the Weather Channel this morning, I was shaking my head when announced was 2~to~3 inches of SNOW for your area!!! It's a very cold 50 degrees here when you factor in our wind chill today on our side of the Prairie!!!
    Gorgeous featured guests, dear friend!
    Here's to a more permanent and steady increasing warming trend for the upcoming week!!!


I love hearing from you. Feel free to comment, big or small.
