Welcome Spring!

                                                                   Welcome Spring!

                                                   I am always excited to welcome spring!

                                                   We had a milder winter with
                                                   hardly any snow this year so most Islanders
                                                   were happy with that...all but outdoor winter
                                                   sports fans anyway.

                                                   Soon, I will be making daily checks around the
                                                   garden to see what is starting to show signs of
                                                    life. Our spring here tends to drag out a bit and
                                                    we often get an early spring snowfall or two,
                                                    but still we know spring is on the way!

Little bouquets of tulips
brighten our dining table.

English Ironstone and tulips
are ready for an afternoon
tea time.

tranferware tureen and covered

                                                             I love bright and sunny days with
                                                             the sun streaming in.

Late spring garden

I am looking forward to lots of
spring color in our garden soon!

Happy Spring!

Oh my... all the PINKS! Just yummy and gives me the warm fuzzies! I want to go make myself a pretty pink toile tablecloth and find some pretty pink dishes.. of course, the transferware is the BEST... better than anything else as I love the look of it all. We are still in "winter" here unfortunately, but the pinks give me some hope. Hugs.. Marilyn

Carolyn, These early spring days are filled with promise -- but also hard to be patient during if spring is slow to arrive, as it is this year for us too. Your late spring scenes show just how much you have to look forward to, and your indoor scenes are lovely. Thanks so much for sharing them, and I hope warm, sunny days arrive for you and your gardens soon! Best Regards, -Beth
