Birds are chirping...

Recently I heard that bird watching is the second largest hobby in the United's no wonder that we all like birds so much.
For fun put a ball of yarn in your yard and watch the birds come by and take some for their nests.

Something new,fun,clean,cheery,and bright.

The market was very colorful... green,yellow,orange,pink,purple and turquoise.

Dream of Spring

As I watch the news and all the flooding around even in our little town of Snohomish, I am so blessed to be safe from all the rising waters as is Joyworks. I am so ready for spring especially when I noticed the other day tulips peeking up in my yard.

This week we received new freight and a variety of "Fleur de lis" were part of it. How appropriate that "fleur" means flower!!!

For the Birds

One of the things our customers love at Joyworks is our selection of birds.

The chickadees arrived this last week in a variety of colors. They are fun to display in just about any display.

I think I hear them singing!
