Even though spring officially arrived on March 20th winter doesn’t seem to want to loosen its cold, icy grip.  Earlier this week the Northeast was hit by yet another snowstorm with Cape Cod, Massachusetts bearing the brunt of the storm with blizzard-like conditions and ten inches of snow!  Hasn’t Mother Nature noticed the calendar reads March and not December???  I don’t know about the rest of you but I, for one, am tired of winter.  So I searched my Bible for references to spring and came upon this:

11 for behold, the winter is past;
    the rain is over and gone.
12 The flowers appear on the earth,
    the time of singing has come,
and the voice of the turtledove
    is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree ripens its figs,
    and the vines are in blossom;
    they give forth fragrance.
Arise, my love, my beautiful one,
    and come away.

Song of Solomon 2:11-13
English Standard Version (ESV)

So for this week’s Friday Finds I searched the shops of fellow CAST teammates and came up with these great items that inspired spring for me!
