Well my friends, right about now is when I start counting the days (the hours, and the minutes) until Spring.
According to Google, right now it is 27 days 11 hours and 30 minutes until Spring officially arrives.
March 20th can’t come fast enough for me! Like I told one of my blog friends recently “I can’t wait until my body aches from working out in the garden”
Although I never wait for the official start of Spring. Once March arrives I’m all over Spring clean up!
‘Spring Time’ just seemed a perfect theme for my latest mantle décor.
Old clocks are mingling with new.
My friend, Joyce had picked up some of this darling clock fabric at a local quilt shop. When I saw it I loved it and asked her if she minded if I copied and made a mantle scarf like hers.
This mantle is a work in progress. I’m sure it will change slightly in the next little while.
I just finished this clock stitching. Waiting for my friend, Amanda to come home from AZ. Her hubby makes the greatest frames.
See, there’s a bare spot waiting for it.
I love how this scarf drapes over the edge and sides of the mantle.
I remembered that I had this framed print I brought home from the Tulip Festival in Washington. I went there with four friends in ‘2000’. Can’t believe it’s been 14 years! I would love to go again sometime. Have you ever been? It’s really something to see!
This print screams ‘Spring’ to me! I love the tulips in the blue bottles as well as the bulbs in the French pots!
What do you think? Do you like it better with the framed print or without?
I switched my rustic pegboard up a little and added a hanging clock.
The hearth got a touch of Spring ‘Time’.
And look, it’s even starting to look like Spring outdoors!
Maybe I’ll curl up, read a good book, and wait for Spring!
I will be joining these lovely parties:
