A little Birdie told me...

That it will be Spring in just one week!

I had to share this adorable little pillow from Judy.
It makes me want to chirp...

The kitchen sitting area is getting Spring-ified,
and some St. Patty's Green is coming out.

What are you up to this weekend?
Hope it has some green in it!

I've opened a FaceBook page
for the Blog,
CLICK HERE for some behind the scenes fun.
Maybe Instagram will be next,
who knows, I'm feeling crazy...

Early Spring Entry and New Lighting

Since we've moved here to the new place I've been thinking about new lighting on the hall console. I'd had my previous gold tone buffet lamp for over 13 years, and once we moved here, it started to look a little "out of place". The gray shutters, white washed mirror, and silver tray were all telling me something "antique gold", was just one too many colors and textures for the space.

Baskets for Spring Door Decor

I've slowly been putting "Winter" away, and bringing "Spring" into the house this last week. After Christmas I keep some of my winter faux greenery out as a backdrop and base for winter flower arrangements, and in baskets. Since snow covered trees and evergreens have been about the only landscape in sight, I've enjoyed my transition time from Christmas to Spring. But now that the sun is shining and the thermometer is going to be in the 50's and 60's we have a good chance that the worst of winter is behind us.

Painting Antique Frames

What a joy it was to turn over those calender pages, to see what March will bring. February was cold and snowy and brutal for so many of us. March is my Birthday Month, and it always signals the start of Spring. I feel my optimism and mood lighten with that one little flip of a calender page.

A week or so ago, Hubbs and I hung up a few oil paintings that he's given me over the years. They are my favorites, but I was just guessing at where they should be. Wall space in this house is scarce, and I'm trying to be selective about what I'm putting up. So we ended up changing things around because the space really needed something bigger.

Early Spring Inspiration

I went looking for some Spring Inspiration through my photo gallery of the last week of February and the first week of March. Here are a few images of what I was doing last year this time and the year before. Some of the photos make me tearful and nostolgic, so I'll save those, but here are a few that are happy and briming with the anticipation of all things Spring.
