Spring Vignette

It was so gorgeous here today, that I couldn't bear the thought of staring at our pine cone centerpiece any longer.  Spring will be sprung, I declared, fist high to the sky.  Okay, not really.  But I really did want to springify everything.

I started today with the buffet top.





This frame holds a very special memory for me:  the dried flowers are from my wedding bouquet and the background material is from my wedding dress.  Makes me smile when I look at it.


Should I paint the birdhouses?  What colour would you choose?





These tea-dyed eggs were left over from last Easter so I found a new home for them, nestled in the spanish moss.


 Well, it's a start.  Have you started decorating for spring yet?

This is where I'm partying:

Had a day off yesterday and spent it making the house look like Spring had sprung! Even put out a few Easter decorations! It's been so (strangely) warm here that people are wearing flip-flops!

I'd paint the bird house yellow! Love the way your buffet looks!

BTW, what's your wall colour? Looks exactly like mine!

So pretty! I agree with Carol-Anne, I think yellow would be the perfect pop of color!

It's warm and sunny here, too. All is right with the world again!

How beautiful and tasteful!

Tina said...

Very pretty. I agree something yellow would work.

Ooooh la la! Love your tea dyed eggs. So pretty~

I agree with everyone else the birdhouses would be so cute in yellow. I have been on a huge spring kick lately. I even splashed out and bought some fresh cut flowers for the house yesterday.:)

I have never advocated painting anything yellow, but it will go with the frame (which is a beautiful memento, by the way). I think you could pull it off.

Ohhh, now I need to springify too. :) It looks great, Terry!

MiMi said...

No, but that's so pretty!

Rustown Mom said...

The birdhouse would be pretty in peach, yellow, or aqua. The whole thing is pretty as is, though.

Everything looks perfect! I have done ZERO spring decorating--how sad haha

Too bad you're so far away, Little Crafter would looove to get his hands on the birdhouses and paint them for you. He'd pick blue, but I guess that doesn't really go with your decor...lol.

Love those eggs! Maybe an antique blue or Wedgwood green gor the bird houses to add some more color?

Amy said...

I had a ooooh moment when I saw those birdhouses!!!!! Everything is so pretty!!! Warm weather hey..... (insert obnoxious word here.). Lol. Just kidding. It's not to bad around these parts these days!!

Tina Bradley said...

I absolutely love this--all of it--but especially the tea-dyed eggs--so elegant!
