Spring "Nesting"

This is the first weekend in over a month that the sun is shining and it is not snowing!

Spring is on it's way.

I think I am going to have fun using my side buffet in my dining room as a place to create vignettes.
I gathered some cloches, an apothacary jar, vintage garden books and some faux nests.
 

Along with a chippy bird candle holder and some fresh tulips, it is starting to look like spring.

Is spring arriving where you live?

Welcome Home,
Penny

Ah, yes, It's here - in all its blossomy glory!

Vee said...

Great minds and all that today... Yes! Believe it or not, our temps are about the same as yours and there is spring in the air. Your buffet is going to be a wonderful place for you to have lots of fun decorating. It looks great. Now I have that very same sweet birdbath thingy and I never knew that it was for a candle. It's being used to stage a dresser at the "other" place and now I'll have to tell John that I want it back! Today! :D

Enjoy this sunny weekend now...

The vignette looks beautiful Penny! It is sunny and 47 here right now (I'm hoping for 50 before the day ends!) The snow is melting, the birds are singing, I'm so happy I could float:>) Happy Spring!

Hi Penny!
Love your pictures! I am glad to say the sun is shining brightly here in Ohio today, melting away all that awful white stuff we've had on the ground for two months! Your blog is how I feel inside today
