A Touch of Spring in the Garden Room

With all the frigid weather we've had this last few weeks, I've spent a lot of time wandering through Pinterest seeking a little inspiration for Spring. It was hard to get moving in that direction when it was still in the teens, but once the thermometer hit 50 I knew it was time to get off the sofa, put away a few of those electric blankets, and get busy bringing in some sunshine.

All About Home Link Party # 80

Hi Friends, 
 Welcome to the All About Home Link Party.
Thankyou for taking the time to come by
and share your week.

So many of us were impacted by the country's
deep freeze this last week.
I think most of the country, even if you didn't lose power,
has suffered with a way below normal arctic cold spell.
I'm hoping you all have your power back
and will soon be on the road to "normal".

Not Quite Spring in the Hearth Room

Most times, I go from Valentine's Day directly into Early Spring decorating. But this year we've all had a strong blast of winter that just sidelined me (you guys too) With temps below 0 for about a week in a row and several good rounds of snow I just wasn't up to getting out the spring-y stuff. As I said, I'm sure next week when it hits 50 I'll be more in the mood, but for now it's still "February" and the tail end of winter.

Not Quite Spring Mantel and Hearth Room

I want to be transitioning to "all things Spring", but I'm finding it difficult when the temp outside is 5 degrees and there's 8 inches of snow. It's too cold to go into the garage and search thru the spring flower tubs, so I'm making do and sharing what I'm living with this last couple of weeks in February.

Valentine Botanical Farm Table Vignette

Hi Everyone, I hope you're having a sweet Valentine's Day weekend!
A few weeks ago I was part of a fun blog hop where we each shared our ideas for Winter Botanicals and Gardens. It gave me a real emotional lift to be thinking about Spring during this long and cold stretch of winter. I've had that farmtable vignette out in the Garden Room since the hop, and last week I decided to tweak it a bit and give it a Valentine's Day spin with a few vintage postcards.

Vintage Valentine Postcard Vignette

I've had a love for antique and vintage paper goods and ephemera for many years; old post cards are a favorite. Photos, cards and personal notes, botanical specimens, book illustrations and so many other bits of odds and ends have found their way into my possession. Often old books are literally falling apart or have suffered some sort of damage to the point they cannot be kept, but let me look through them first to remove any pages of art or illustration that I can hang onto.
