Have Hope

Spring weather is arriving for one full day tomorrow...can't wait!  Today I have some speckled blue eggs and a word of hope.  I love the style of Tim Holtz Blueprint stamps.  Some are egg-stra special (sorry)  This one reminds me of the empty nest outside of my stamp studio door.  A pair of robins have used the nest for the last three years or so. It has withstood all kinds of weather from heavy summer wind storms to icy blizzards.  The robins are a friendly couple.  They "dress up" the house each year by poking in more grasses and sometimes colorful found objects.  It is fun to watch them growing their babies from"screaming"never full infants to gawky teenagers trying out their flying skills.  Ah-h-h Spring...someday...there's always hope :)
