One More Time!

I have done a couple of posts showing my “Time for Spring” theme.  Hopefully, you’re not too sick of it and can handle one more.

This rustic table is along the walk way in our family room. One of my hubbys friends made it for me years ago. It has a cute scalloped edge, but I didn’t catch it in the photo.

My metal bird cloche is home to two vintage alarm clocks that I picked up at estate sales.

One of them no longer works, but I still thought it was too cute to pass up.

The fern platter and the bird topiary were items that I bought in St. George.

The platter I bought two years ago and I still love it.  I have always loved ferns.  I think that they look so unique when they unfurl. I have some in my garden that were starts from my mother.  The little bird and nest tucked in amongst faux ferns looks right at home.

I found this sweet little bird dish at the D.I. for $1.50.  I filled it with one of my favorite treats, Jordan Almonds.  Oh-oh, looks like someone's been sneaking an egg or two.  Sure hope those birds don’t mind

Some green tulle, a bit of green burlap, a birdcage tag, and a small clock work adorn this plate holder.

Bird eggs are so pretty, don’t you think?  Even these faux ones aren’t bad.

I have a two tier dessert stand that match the cute little square plates.  The cut glass blue candy dish was a thrift find.

I have had the yellow dotty tea pot for years.  I use to have a cup and saucer to match, but it got broken.  The little blue flower dish is another thrifty find.

A raw edged applique quilt hangs over an extra dining chair.  I love these Springy colors.

I may be thinking that it’s “Time for Spring”, but Mother Nature has a different idea.

It is snowing as I am doing this post.

One things for sure, it won’t last long and Spring will come!

Till then I’ll be potting Spring plants and a bit of grass to bring Spring into my home.

Hugs,

Jann

I love the thrifty things. It always inspires me to go hunting. I wish I could find a plate stand like that. I could stack so much more that way. I just can not wait for Spring. It will be awhile coming here in Michigan

Love that table - that green and the red and the blue look so fresh together. Please show us your scalloped table some time. I am slightly addicted to scallops. (I have two of those red drawer things - we use them in our bathroom to store little incidentals - but I'm thinking about painting them.) So nice to stop by for a short visit! We had rain last night and fog this morning so spring hasn't quite sprung here yet either. Although, the beautiful fruit orchards that I drive by every day are blooming their glorious pinks and whites, so the fruit trees know it's spring!

I must confess -- I took the little eggs; I cannot resist Jordan Almonds! Love the cute bowl they're in and your sweet spring quilt!

The quilt is lovely! And all of your pretty Spring colors make me feel happy this morning! I think I will pull out a few things for my bakers rack today and give Spring a boost! ♥
