Are you ready? It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for my Mitten Moments. Whether you are knee deep in snow, basking in the warm sunshine, or maybe somewhere in between, take a moment to swing by my cottage and see all the goodness this week holds!

My Personal Mitten Moments

First, I want to thank everyone who reached out and wished me a happy birthday! It was an amazing day! I shopped until I dropped and had a wonderful dinner with Big Al. If you missed it, my family threw me a surprise party last weekend.

Ahhh…this girl feels so loved!

In fun news…while watching my sweet grands earlier this week and my 3 year old granddaughter looked at me, grabbed a book and exclaimed, “This is mine and I am the future!”

Yes, sweet girl! Yes, you are! That’s some girl affirmation right there!

“Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” – Jack Benny

I’ve been working on planning out my gardens for this coming spring. My youngest son who recently moved out has five raised container beds and he has told me that I can plant whatever I want in them! I’m considering zucchini, beans, various peppers and tomatoes.

I will definitely be planting a bed of zinnias too!

Are you a raised bed gardener? If so, I’d love to hear what you have had success with!

Have you started thinking about decorating for spring? I have to admit, I am dreaming about spring but it is difficult to get into the mood when we still have the wintery white stuff on the ground.

However, I needed some springtime in my life, at least inside my home, and I shared How to Create a Spring Lantern – Pinterest Challenge.

A Few Of My Favorite Moments

If you can’t quite get on board with all things spring, how about some fun cookies for St. Patrick’s Day? Diane from Southhouse Designs shared her Easy to Make Shamrock Meringue Cookies.

How pretty are these? I bet they taste amazing too!

Who needs to up their game with an amazing ceiling in their life? I could sure use one. My good friend, KariAnne from Thistlewood Farm showed us some beautiful options for taking your ceiling to the next level. Check out her post 7 Ceiling Desing ideas That Keep it Interesting.

So pretty right?

How about all those gorgeous light fixtures too?!

I love a good tea party and I have since I was a little girl. I even wrote a post on How to Have a Tea Party. This week, my friend Leslie from Feet Under My Table shared Easter Tea Party Time – A New Lemon Shortbread Cookie.

A tea party and a yummy new cookie!

Currently, I’m into all things about gallery walls. I am creating a couple in my home and have become obsessed with the subject. I recently wrote a post Beautiful Vintage Artwork & Easy Gallery Walls. If you didn’t get a chance to see it, I would love for you to check it out.

Recently, Molly from Molly in Maine shared Creative Wall Decor Part 1: Art and Gallery Walls. Every view in Molly’s home looks like it walked out of a magazine. Her gallery walls are no exception!

Next up, my friend Ann from Dabbling and Decorating has the prettiest moutain views. Stop by and check out Ann’s post, 4 Season Sunroom Makeover.

There are some amazing views inside and out that you don’t want to miss!

I can’t imagine having this view out my window!

And now…

Here are some other WONDERFUL mitten moments I found:
