Call 911-Something's Brewing

Oh my friends, I need to call 911!
 

I have had a terrible fever the last few days.
 
Yup, for sure. . . something is brewing!

 
I get it every year, but this year it has hit me hard.
 
Did you guess it? 
I have a bad case of 'Spring Fever'! 
 
Usually it doesn't come on until after Valentines Day.  But as some of you may know, a friend and I shared a booth at a vintage sale last Saturday, called Fleology.
It is hosted by another friend, Paula from Pollyanna Reinvents.  I have gotten to know her since my 'meet and greet' last June and she's such a talented lady!
 
During the warmer months she holds it at her home in the gardens.  But this January sale was held at Olson's Greenhouse.
(no relation, I might add.  but they do spell it correctly)  :)
 
photos of our booth.
 
 
 


 
The greenhouse had lots of pretty pink Geraniums and one area by the pond was blooming.  Yes, beautiful purple blossoms of Myrtle were calling out and giving me the 'fever'.  lol!
 
Can you believe I didn't take a single photo?
 
But I did come home with these.

 
I may have to 'force' myself to wait for Spring, but while doing that I can 'force' a few Spring blooms.
 
How about you, got the fever?
 
hugs,
Jann

Your booth is so cute! I bet you sold it all.

Spring fever definitely hits this time of year. Would you believe that our winter has been so mild, that almost all of my plants from last summer are still living. They are a little rough looking but still alive. I'm still watering and hoping they stay with me. :)

Your booth looks great -- bet you sold a lot!! Bob tells me it is just 2 months from today that he will plant the peas in the garden -- hold on -- Spring is coming! Sally

The only fever I have, Jann, is the fever of sheer delight at that opening photo and all the other lovelies!! Oh my....that pink phone...where oh where did you find it. Your booth at Olsen's Greenhouse is a masterpiece!! Too, too many pretties. I especially love the bowl with the pretty pastel glasses. What a pity you live up there and I live down here. =)

lol At first I was like oh no poor Jann!! You got me!!! LOVE the beauty of your booth!! Very Spring Like!! We are so cold here in Michigan we have been dripping the faucet at night and using the kerosene heater to heat our bedroom which actually use to be the garage so it gets real chilly! Oh I saw some real cuties there in your pics!! Oh the bummer of living so far away!!! You are certainly blessed and talented my pretty friend!!! Thanks for sharing!! XOXO Love Fran.

Hehe- fun title! I feel that way often about all the things I get myself into! Looks like you had a fun time this weekend! Spring is so far off for us up here I try not to think of it too early on though as soon as Valentine's Day is past I will be allowing myself to!

Love the tablecloth under the punch bowl! You sure do have a lot of teeny trees.

I think we all have spring fever Jann! You are lots of good company. Love that name Fleaology! What a wonderful time you all must have had. We're wishing you a fabulous New Year! blessings, Edie & Marie

Lots and lots of eye candy here! People must have swarmed to your booth! I want each and every one of those dyed bottle brush trees! And the pink phone is a treasure! We haven't even had a real winter yet so we're all waiting on that here in the Northeast. Spring is so far away that I haven't given it a thought.

Jann,
Nope!!! No "Spring Fever" here (yet), dear friend!!!
I'm all a~do in Winter White!!!
Love your sweet, sweet booth!!!
The Velveteen Rabbit would probably have come home with me!!!
It's my all time childhood favorite to read to little ones!!!
I saw some (faux) green hued tulips on a blog last week
that nearly sent me over the top!!!
Do you think I've been exposed enough to possibly come down with "Spring Fever"???
Fondly,
Pat

I'm ready for Spring...but I hear that we might get a lot of snow at the end of the week. I love your booth...saw lots of great goodies in your photos!!

Love, love, love your booth! Nifty treasures. I know what you mean about spring fever; it's very cold here in NC (temps into the teens tonight). When it's like this, there are a few complications in my critter care. So tonight I brought in all the chicken waterers so I won't have to thaw them in the morning. The donkey have one waterer that's heated, and we just let the other two freeze till the sun gets to them. We left cold Michigan for moderately warm North Carolina back in 1983. This c-c-c-cold offends us. But that will change. I will have daffodills in February and irises soon after that.

I don't have spring fever yet however I do have the fever for hunting and finding antique and vintage treasures.
I would have loved to attend the greenhouse sale
the little trees looks so cute peeking out of the hat boxes

Bernideen said...

Dear Jan:
There is no way I would have passed by and not purchased something. Love those cute original designs you created for Valentines Day! So glad you shared.

No fever over here yet Jann, I am thrilled with the snow we are getting right at this moment!

I love a fresh batch of new snow...to cover the old gray stuff...but not quite ready for spring. A friend, Holly, was quite clever the other day when she said her "sheet" of new snow wasn't quite deep enough to call a "blanket." I was thinking of her this weekend when we got a "comforter" of fresh snow.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I'm drooling over that pink phone! Everything looks so inviting.

Art and Sand said...

Your booth looks like so much fun.

I thought I would do something like this show once I retired, but I am too darn lazy!

Adrienne said...

Looks like lots of fun and pretty colors! =)

Bernideen said...

Dear Jan:
I will be featuring this posting on my featured blogs tomorrow! Congratulations!

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

Oh Jann, I want to shop at your booth! Everything looks so inviting and arranged so prettily.
No Spring fever for me, because after that it's our brutal Summers here in Texas. I love Winter here!

Jann, this looks like my kind of sale! How fun ~ as soon as the cedar pollen clears here, spring fever will hit me too! Thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm. Pinning to our Features & Favorites Board!
