Dare I Say Spring?



I've been so busy loving on winter that I almost hate to see it end. As sad and dysfunctional as this may sound, I really can't get my 'spring on' until Shannan posts something on her blog about spring's arrival. Yep, I admit it, I regularly stalk her blog for inspiration. She's cool though- I hope she doesn't mind, shhhh, don't tell her. 




I kept thinking, I've got to start shopping the house soon and spring things up a little, but nothing, I wasn't feeling it, that is until Shannan put a little bit of eye candy on her blog and then, I started to feel a little twinge of wanting to lighten and brighten a bit. It started as a little twinge way down low and as I perused the pictures of her living room on her blog, the little twinge slowly began to grow into a little flutter, and then into an all out, "I think this house could use some fresh flowers"



Nothing puts me in the springy mood faster than walking into our tiny local florist on our downtown square and taking in a huge sniff of that fresh floral air. You know that fresh flower smell- honey, it's right up there with fresh baked bread. Heavenly. 

I also throw anything else fresh and green into the mix.........



This is just a totally random picture, but this cabinet always makes me smile.......



How about y'all- are y'all getting the urge to welcome spring into your home?

    1. Okay, firstly, bless your heart that spring is an April/May thing for you and secondly, welcome, so happy you are here. I just tell myself each year that if I can only make it till March, I've survived winter. Here in GA, March can be mighty chilly, but it's close enough to spring so I declare it spring- ha!I
