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!
