I crown thee....

Don't be so hasty to throw those broken ornaments away....pieces from old broken jewelry work well too!
There's always room for more than one Queen. :)

Spring Cleaning

Our Winter here where I am is a very long season of rain, rain and more rain.  We finally have a few days of sunshine and we're ready to welcome Spring.  I took the leaf out of my table to allow for a bit more room and since we all have our own seemed more like a catch-all than a place for people to gather.
My son and I sit at the table to do school during the day and this will suit us just fine. My daughter works full time and will start college in a few weeks so very rarely do the four of us gather here for a meal all at the same time.
I've always had a rocking chair in the corner...sometimes it's this green one, or an old white one, or the one I got 20 years ago for a baby shower gift.  Some of you may remember our kitty Flynn that passed away a few years ago....this was his spot...he loved sleeping in the rocker in the corner.  I embroidered his name on the pillow but you really can't see it well due to the floral I have plans to make another one soon.
Our youngest cat, Simba, has taken over the rocker but it will always be Flynn's chair.
Simba is quite adventurous, he recently discovered that he can jump from the red armoire to the cabinet tops...
Our other two cats are between 11 and 13 years old so they're not quite as daring, which suits Simba just fine.  He has this space all to himself.
Walter has been waiting for Spring also, he spends a lot of his time in the window overlooking the common area behind our house....even he is getting tired of all the rain.
He's very resourceful though and makes his own fun ...almost daily after running around in the back yard, he finger paints for me on the back slider. This is one of my favorites, you can see his little paw prints :)
I hope you all have a Blessed Week and I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world!
