A hint of Spring

I've been playing on the sunporch again.
Hope you guys don't go
"oh no...not again."
Sort of like Meryl Streep at the Oscars.
Gosh, I love that woman...she is so down to earth.

I know why I like piddle-ing out here.
It's because it's sort of like playing "dress-up".

I get to pick out a new dress and accessories for my wicker pieces...

change up my little coffee table my Daddy made for me...

and now dream of Spring, that feels right around the corner.

Someday when I'm brave I'll show you where I keep all my pillows and quilts.
I'm a hoarder.

I love changing out the color schemes with each new season.

I'm lovin' a little bit of pink...

uh-huh...you see a rabbit...
can Easter be far behind?

hey...what's that?

someone's pretty lazy,

and lovin' the warmer weather!

  23. Debra,
    I love what you have done to your porch!! So, inviting and comfy. The fleurs are beautiful. I love the arrangement on the mirror!

  24. Debra, I never tire of your sunroom, or your pictures, or your blog...it is always wonderful. Like looking at my favorite magazine! Yay. It looks wonderful too. Love it. Love the new attire on your wicker. Very pretty.

  25. Lovely! Put me in a "ready for spring" mood. Your collections each season are a delight to see.


  26. Debra, I would never tire of seeing your sun porch. I love it.

  27. Your porch looks so very inviting. Spring has certainly arrived at your house. Just beautiful :)

  28. Your porch makes me feel like spring is right around the corner!!


  29. Debra,
    Lovely! Like the cat...who has the best seat in the house...I love your changes on the wicker loveseat! Your birdhouses are similar to the ones my Dad built for me as he was recovering from open heart surgery 15 years ago! You've inspired me to change the hues of the birdhouses for this coming Spring! About the Oscars...I hope she wins again, and again, and again!!!

  30. aahh I wish it was spring already but am loving the pictures...time for me to start changing over to "the garden look." Just lovely porch.

  31. It's all just beautiful Debra! As I'm sitting here the wind is whipping around the house and the rain is pouring so seeing your pics was very good for my soul! :-)

  32. But you hoard and display in such a nice way! How do you do it?

  33. Your secret is safe with us.... in fact many of us are probably thinking, what's the matter with being a hoarder???


  34. The birdie items are wonderful...love the vintage birdcage the best. Thank you for sharing!



  35. Sigh. It surely is looking like spring in your sunporch. We'll be shoveling out of the snowstorm for the next few days. After that, I'd like to be your can lounging in the sun. :@

  36. Debra, it's all so pretty! And your sweet kitty has the right idea! Love your teapots!

  37. Lazy cat and all, why not snooze in this comfy beautiful room that ready for spring.

  38. What a cozy place to be. I am sure that you enjoy hours of calm there. Your piddling payed off everything is just fabulous.

  39. I could curl up there and chill out forever. Thank you ever so much for sharing such beautiful peaceful images for us all to enjoy. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  40. Ahhh, Debra everything looks cozy and so springlike! love it. and your kitty is just enjoying it to the hllt isn't she?
    I love all your quilts and pillows, I and my sis both have a passion for that stuff. it's best to keep us out of places like Bed, Bath and Beyond, cause we have no more room to store. You have to sneek us a peek at where you keep them hidden!

  41. IF I had that pretty porch I would want to be out there playing all the time too. You lucky girl. LOVE the wicker piece & the table from your Daddy... be still my heart. Those gifts our Daddy's give us never cease to comfort us do they? THANK YOU for sharing this spot of beauty. I NEEDED that in my day today. HUGS!

  42. I was just wondering where you kept your stash. You seem to just pull pretty outta thin air!
    Tell kitty kitty...that's MY seat!

  43. I love your sun porch it makes me want to sit and have some tea. Very beautiful.

  44. What a great space...the vignette of objects in the basket it adorable.

  45. Everything you touch is glorious! I'll never get tired of looking ":o)

  46. Debra ,I love that sun porch of yours, and every chance you do it through the year.
    The bouquet you made to hang is so naturel and beautiful-and the spring colours in there, lovely.

  47. What a pretty porch, Debra. No wonder you enjoy 'fussing' with it. Nancy was kind enough to post your link on her blog and I'm so glad she did. I'll be stopping by again!

  48. Oh Debra,
    I will never tire of seeing your fabulous porch. Simply gorgeous.


  49. You did a good job of making the sunroom look 'springy'. Please enjoy decorating it for me. When I finally got one, we ended up re-locating a year later and this house doesn't have one...so when you're playing, please play for me! ;o)

  50. I like it when you "piddle"....we get to see some amazing pics!

  51. Your displays are magical! Seems we are all thinking of spring! Laura

  52. I KNEW that was your pretty little porch in that photo, Debra! I hurried to click on it because I knew you had changed it up for springtime - and it's beautiful! That chocolate quilt on your settee is so rich looking! Another beautiful transformation, sweetie. :) And...uh.....someone knows a comfy spot when they see it. lol!

    xoxo laurie

  53. Your sunporch is lovely. I envy you and wish I had one too. I love your wicker and the beautiful quilt and pillows are perfect. When it comes to quilts I am a hoarder too. Your kitty certainly knows how to enjoy a sunny afternoon. All your vignettes are wonderful.
    Have a great weekend.

  54. So lovely and it sure does feel like spring. Your displays are stunning! I can certainly see why your beautiful cat loves that spot. I have a fluffy gray cat that looks just like yours. BTW I found your blog through Met Mondays on BNOTP. Have a wonderful Monday!
