Bringing Spring Inside

Spring arrived four days ago, so in my opinion, it is time for winter to be OVER!  Don’t get me wrong.  I love winter.  But I am ready for flowers and planting and sitting out on the deck.

However, I’m going to have to wait a bit on getting outside.  Temps are going to be down in the 20s this week!  -sigh-

So I decided to bring a bit of spring inside.

And our sofa table was the perfect place to start. 

Our daffodils are blooming like crazy.  I have about 5 or 6 different varieties and will be planting more this fall.  I’m a real fan of Ikebana arrangements.  I’m going to work on learning how to do them this summer. 

Nothing says spring more around here than a bird next.  (This one fell from a tree after a storm.)  The ‘egg’ is made from frosted glass.

Tiny ‘tete-a-tete’ daffodils I found at Wal-Mart for less than a dollar a pot are sitting in an Easter basket I made a few years ago.  A little Spanish moss from Dollar Tree (THE cheapest place to get moss!) covers the pots.  When the blooms are done, I’ll plant these wee treasures out with my other daffodils.  I found the cute lamb at a consignment shop in St. Louis near the Botanical Garden.

The black sheep lamb is from Hobby Lobby a few years ago.  I stalked him for weeks until he was finally 65% off. 

I had so much fun putting this together I’m looking for other places to add a bit of spring!
