Spring Time Blues. . .

Hello my friends!
 
Today is a gorgeous day and I am heading out into the garden.
I think that I will be able to finish the last of my Spring cleaning.
 
I've planted some early veggies and life is good!!  lol!
 
My thoughts turn to you that have had such a harsh winter and are not able to get outside and enjoy Spring.
 
I'm sure that you are feeling a bit 'bottled' up!
 
Sharing some Spring time blues to hopefully chase some of yours away!
 
 
I love old aqua colored bottles!  I gathered a few of my smaller ones together and displayed them on my chippy shelf from Décor Steals.
 
 
The little clock faces are my take on 'Spring time in a bottle".
 

The sweet paper basket was a party favor years ago.  Made by my niece, Shaleace.
I just realized that I need to fill it with some of my fluffy chicks.
 
 
 
A motto to live by:  Live well, Laugh often, love much!
 
Easter postcards hang from a wire strung across the old window frame.
 
 
If I could bottle up some of our sunshine and send it to you I surely would!


 
For now I'll share my pretty Spring time blues and hope they brighten your day!
 
hugs,

I think aqua bottles are the prettiest of all. Love that shelf, Jann, and the little basket is sweet. I can't complain about our weather. It's been nice here. Daffodils are in bloom. We'e headed to Washington state this morning where I know it will be beautiful. They're about 3 weeks ahead of us in seasonal change, so there'll be a lot of flowers to see. I hope you have a great day. Hugs, Nancy

love all the shades of blue Jann. Such a pretty collection. I've pinned this to our Shabbilicious Friday page.

This is so pretty, Jann...I love the beautiful blue bottles...

Laura Lane said...

Pretty collection.

I moved my GFC followers widget to the bottom of my page. Only the things lower on the page jiggle. You might try that if your sidebar jiggling bothers you.

I don't know what crazy thing the programmers did to mess it up.

Blessings,
Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage

what a sweet idea. I just spent this evening putting away all of my Easter décor and was thinking I need to reshop the house and change things around in all the rooms...The cold and wet weather makes me want spring INSIde. Thanks for the inspiration
