52 linked: newness.

linked: newnessNewness

I saw these at Trader Joes earlier this week. Happy, little, new daffodils. Soon nature will be full of newness - green buds on trees, flowers just peeking out through the soil. It reminded me a bit of the new year, and all that comes with that "clean slate" - new adventures, new opportunities, new memories to be made. Newness all around just waiting to open-up in the warmth of the sun.

My friend, Michelle, had a great idea to link-up for a 52 week project this year. I am taking the plunge and will do my best to participate every week, though I've occaisionally been know to procrastinate to the very last minute. A few other friends are joining-in on the adventure. Please stop by and see their interpretations of our word of the week.


If you would like to join us on this little weekly adventure just let me know in the comments, below. Our theme for next week is "Cold."

I love that you found a little inside newness at a time when we can't find much of this kind of newness outdoors. Beautiful photo.

I love this. The similar tones, the creaminess, the bird's eye angle and the the freshness of the flowers. Makes me long for spring! Beautiful!
