Welcoming March, Praying for Peace & This Week's TFT Party

Hello friends, welcome back to Shoestring Elegance! Happy March to you all. I pray that everything is just as you like it where you are. 

Please join me in praying for peace for the Ukrainian people. So very hard to watch them as they try and fight to defend their home. Very heart breaking and difficult times.

This week, I spent some time with my Mum, which is not odd.  You see, every year, about this time her flowering crabapple tree puts on the most beautiful show for all to see. And, while it doesn't last long, it is spectacular sight.  Also, every year, I try and capture its beauty, but now believe no image will ever match the awesomeness of standing right in front of it and watching it come to life.  Nonetheless, I did snap a picture to share with you, before we get onto this week's Thursday Favorite Things party. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and that you have equally beautiful blooms showing up where you are. I am abundantly blessed and have nothing to complain about, in this place and time.

On with a few features from last week’s party. 
Pam from Everyday Living's Citrus & A Floral Medley couldn’t be more perfect for the coming Spring table.  
Cindy from Cloches & Lavender's DIY Bird Nests In 5 Minutes would be a fun project for Spring or Easter! 
Rachelle from My Hubbard Home's A Cottage Style Spring Home Tour shows off some of her precious pieces. 

Thistle Key Lane shows us How to Style a Spring Bar Cart

If you were looking for a yummy bite to help you get in the Spring mood, you’d be hard pressed to find any thing better than Kristy Still’s Strawberry Angel Fluff Trifle

That’s it for me, this week! 

Thank you so much for spending some time with me today. Please take some time to get to know all the lovely ladies that make this party happen. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.
