Spring Time Cheer !

Hello everyone,
     I know it isn't really spring yet and we have the snow to prove it but in our little sun room it looks and feels like spring on a bright sunny day.
    


I brought out a pretty vintage thrift shop tablecloth.
and my new pillow from the Christmas Tree Shop
My geranium that I took up from the basement where I overwintered it is starting to bloom-it must be spring!
The fragrance of the hyacinth starting to bloom sure reminds me of spring.
I am in the pink today!


I found this pretty pink blanket ($5) at the thrift shop last week and it makes a nice cover for my comfy old chair.








Well, it does look like spring is actually coming as they are predicting some temperatures well about freezing even at night so that should do some serious melting on our big banks of snow. It is going to make my morning walk so much more enjoyable then these past few cold frosty mornings.
I am going in Show and Tell at My Romantic Home today.

Also joining Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend,

Carolyn

Delightful! The pink of your blanket is so pleasing to the eye, a good find! I hope you have a good weekend and that you continue to see some signs of spring. It definitely is here now, with blossoms aplenty. I will look forward to seeing it a second time from you blog! Thanks for always enriching my life with your posts!

I noticed mud puddles on the walkway into the Biscuit Eater Coffee and Book store in Mahone Bay today and decided that must mean spring is here. Your porch would have been a lovely place to enjoy the treats I picked up from the shop today.

Dear Carolyn,

What a very comfortable room your sunroom is. The sun streaming in, all the pillows, the beautiful view of the garden. It looks like the perfect place to sit with a book and a cup of tea.

I wish you a great weekend. I started mine on the fleamarket today and found some lovely rose cups and a teapot!

Lieve groet,

Madelief

Dear Carolyn, You have such a talent and eye to find hidden treasures, then to combined them as an alchemist into magical kindoms. I imagine your pink blanketed chair is so cozy and comfortable . . . to dream of spring . . . within your realm of charm and beauty. You take the idea of a pink room to an unusual height of aesthetic perfection. Lovely!!

I am Kimiko Hida ,entertained with the travel from Japan in October of last year.
I am being hospitalized for "MS" to relapses in the Kyushu University hospital in Japan now.
Spring has come,so beautiful.
This is writing so I want to English very well.

This hospital is a little far from my home, and I want to return to the house early.
