Thursday Thoughts

MARCH is here!  We've had some crazy warm weather this week so it has me thinking about gardening, green, plants, green, spring and St. Patrick's Day!  Luckily last weeks blog hop had some wonderful articles that go right along with what my brain is focused on!

Clutter.  I hate it.  It drives me mad.  But I seem to have a family and house that clutter reproduces in daily.  No matter how many times I declutter there is MORE to deal with in another room.  If you are a naturally organized person, then you might not relate to this but MANY of my readers and friends are messies like me so read on!  Decluttering CAN be worked into real life and not overwhelm you.

Today I want to highlight a few of my favorite posts from last week's  Encouraging Hearts and Home! I started out looking for kids crafts but as often happens when I'm reading all the wonderful posts, I got distracted.

So these are the posts that I got totally sucked into from the many wonderful linkups from last week! I wish I could feature more than four!
