The Season of Singing… and 3 Free Spring Printables

Posted on March 13, 2013 | 4 comments

Just a few weeks ago I posted about the cold ground of Winter, and here we are– with longer days and hints of Spring!
 
 
In celebration of this season of life and new beginnings, I wanted to give you a little gift. So here you are– three free Spring printables for you! If you fancy any of them, simply click below the image as indicated to download and print away. They are formatted to print easily on regular 8.5×11″ printer paper, perfect for framing, pinning to walls, tucking in a little corner of the house to add a touch of brightness… or whatever you dream up.
 
Sidenote: Don’t worry, the little www.AmandaDykes.com you see below on the images won’t appear on the printables themselves when you download them.
 

 
First, my favorite, because we have a God who can take a heart when all seems barren, and whisper a song of truth and strength into it, until one day…

Second, a quote I scribbled down during a reading of Jane Eyre some 8 years ago or so. Can’t you just picture the flower beds and the glimpses of hope young Jane found in them during her cold, dark years at Lowood School?

And last, a little piece of whimsy from The Secret Garden
— and if I may say, this would be the perfect season to re-read (or read for the first time!) this childhood classic. I listened to it on CD last Spring in the car– what fun to re-join Mary and Colin and Dicken every time we hopped in the car!

  1. These are so beautiful. You did such a lovely job. Thank you for sharing them with us! I love the story behind them, how you jotted them down while reading the books! We’re listening to Anne of Green Gables in the car right now and everything is so quote-worthy! I wish I could write them down while I’m driving. I will have to go hunting in the book. An excuse to read it again πŸ˜‰

    • Oh, that Anne! Exploding quote-worthiness for all time. I know what you mean; I listened to it about 2 years ago while painting a room, and now I think of her endearing whimsy whenever I go in that room. If only I could remember all the quotes I wanted to write down when I was covered in paint! Also, hooray for the originator of Kindred Spirits. πŸ˜‰

  2. My favorite part of spring is wtching the flowers blooming

    • Teresa, that’s one of my favorite parts, too. I just bought some seeds today to plant in our garden– can’t wait to watch them bloom!
