Springtime miracles

Hello everyone calling in to see me today.

I am still slowly using up some mop up second generation pages in my journal,
the butterfly stencil was used here and I think you would agree that there was far to much colour on it to waste.
I even mopped up the paint that I was colouring the die cut flowers with. The sentiment is an old rubber stamp .

Each spring we see flowering miracles in our gardens  and perhaps take them for granted.

The top two photos on the left  show some early  spring flowers in my garden . The pot  welcomes folk to my home on the front steps.

At last my photo with  reference to T Day over at

where we are always made very welcome  with a drinks relates post.
But this is work in progress and I will share it  soon, it will be a bit more colourful than today's page.

On the left is a photo of a digital collage  page I  have just shared my other blog  for a weekly challenge
 I try to enter. 
 It does have a cup of coffee on a tin. In case my coffee drinking friends  wonder I do occasionally  drink coffee . Coffee is the choice of my family, its me who drinks the tea.

My journal page at the top of the post  I will be linking to Jo's theme..... Hello Springtime  at

I am also adding a reminder for our current theme  at Try it on Tuesdays
Say it with flowers.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you have a lovely day.


  1. I love flowers, Yvonne. Your photos are beautiful and your page is SIMPLY GORGEOUS! Lovely sentiment too. Kisses, my friend.

  2. "Flowering miracles," I love that, Yvonne. Beautiful page.

  3. Your journal page is gorgeous and definitely speaks of spring. And the purple watercolor is my favorite. The flowers in your garden are lovely, especially the yellow daffodils.
    Happy Tea Day,

  4. lovely journal art- I do love that old stamp sentiment:) The flowers look so beautiful! Our spring is just ever so slow in arriving this year...I may have to buy some pansies for some immediate color outside my door... happy T day!

  5. It is so nice you have flowers already. Spring has sprung. Smile. Your purple flower art is gorgeous. I love those purple flowers. That little hint of a butterfly adds so much to your page. .And your digital page is great too. Hope you have a super T day Yvonne. Hugs-Erika

  6. OH WOW. Before I forget, I LOVE your pavers and the pot of flowers on your porch. I also am impressed with how you managed to save all that ink from the other butterfly. It's a beautiful spring inspired beauty and great for Jo's theme at Art Journal Journey.

    I think your tea cup is wonderful. So YOU'RE the odd one out who prefers tea. I also like your coffee inspired entry, too. You have a great amount of wonderful art and flowers today to share with us at T this Tuesday, dear Yvonne.

  7. Your journal pages are beautiful, love the spring one, and of course, the cup of coffee on the second one! Great photos, too. Spring is such a beautiful time. That's a nice mug, too, and just right for a tea drinker. Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie
