The Earth Laughs in Flowers - Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade



The weather has been unusually warm here in the Desert Southwest (sorry about that to my northern friends!).  Winter was only a glancing blow a few times.  Since the days have been warm with plenty of sunshine, the grass in the back yard is beginning to green up and some fruit trees are already blooming, masses of pale pink and white flowers.  One of my geraniums is blooming, the hot fuchsia color is so welcome, and the hardy roses are putting on lovely reddish new growth.  Am sure they will be in full bloom in several weeks. And, happily, the much beloved Spanish lavender is setting buds.  Soon the cacti and other native desert plants will be in full bloom - maybe not the showiest of flowers, but gorgeously sublime nonetheless.



Melon Orange and Blue Ceramic Daisy Flower Pendant Handmade by Linda of Linda Landig Jewelry



The flowers that are already blooming and the musings of what is to come kept leading me to Ralph Waldo Emerson’s quote:  “The earth laughs in flowers.”  Yes, it does!  The artisan handmade beauties, many of which are one of a kind creations, in this week’s Wonderful Handmade Wednesday on Indiemade are all flower themed in some way, from actual flowers in the design to a floral color or a garden name.  If something particularly catches your eye, please be sure to click on the live link below the photo for more pictures and information.  I hope you rejoice in each and every handpicked flower item shared here.

Wonderful blog

Thank you, Catherine, for including my shawl in this wonderful blog. We have daffodils blooming here. I love seeing them, I know Spring is coming soon.


Thanks Catherine!

All items tweeted. Of course your earrings already sold on the Monday Twitter Tree :-)

I will stop by again this week and pin, tweeting the pins



Love this language of flowers! How can we not smile or laugh? Just the right pick-me-up on a cloudy dreary late winter but almost spring day!!! Thank you so much for including my orange flower and pewter earrings with your other lovely choices.

Pinned and tweeted

I just finished pinning and tweeting the pins. Sad to see not everyone featured takes the time t comment. These blogs take a long time to create!

Thank you Catherine for including my item!


A blog that is ready for spring

Such a beautiful collection of soft and vibrant flower themed items adorn your blog this so pleased you've included my wildflower inspired earrings. Who doesn't love flowers? My wildflower meadows are still under a few feet of snow, well see them in June and July!

Spring is coming...eventually!

My daffodils are growing, but blooms are a long way off, so we'll have to be patient. Thank you for sharing my Garden Westie zipper pouch in your bouquet of flowers!

Catching up after a hectic week... have pinned each item and shared the post.

Thank you!

Thank you, everyone, for ask the kind comments. It's always a pleasure to share such beauties!
