Welcome Spring: A Field Journal

Spring has been dragging her snow-covered boots en route to Michigan -- and having some fun with "April Fool" pranks along the way. Last month she teased us with balmy weather and early primrose blooms, then threw some snow our way.

No wonder I'm fighting a case of spring fever; I can't wait for the start of gardening season.

The "field journal" shown here is an homage to spring. It was made from a children's board book I found at a thrift store. I covered the boards first with handmade paper, then added a variety of found objects -- twigs, feathers, shells, vintage jewelry, and an image from Botticelli's "Primavera."
