what makes your heart skip a beat?

I am a member of the Etsy Cottage Style Group and this month they are having a blog share of ~ What makes my heart skip a beat??? Oh- so many things. My mood and what inspires me changes with the seasons (hence one of my shops - "The Seasonal Cottage"). So for today, here are a few things:Small vignettes on my windows remind me summer is around the corner!

Spring Florals inside waiting to be planted outside....

Gardening books to help me plan my outdoor living/gardening space...a constant work in progress.
Making my own scented potpourri with lovely florals and lots of shells for summer!
I have tons of white and purple violets growing wild in my field. I transplant some each year into my flower beds. Love the little buds! They remind me of cheery faces (ok, I know this sounds strange).Be sure to check out all the blogs listed on the Etsy Cottage Style Blog for a complete list of participants!
