This is why I never finish what I set out to do. It is definitely time for spring cleaning but...
instead I am playing with color and arrangements. Moving things from here to there. I know you do this too.
Taking things from a shelf to put under a cloche.
Finding all the yellows and pale blue to mix with the ever present red. What are your favorite spring colors?
I think red can be a spring color too...right? Because I can't live without red. What is your can't live without color?
I know how some of you feel about faux but I just had to have some permanent tulips and my forsythia isn't blooming yet. Forgive me, but I like it. Do you still use a few faux blooms for fun? Check out this Daisy Cottage post for faux done properly.
I don't do all out Easter kitsch now that my kids are grown, but a few chicks are very sweet. What is your favorite symbol of springtime?
These colors will last through summer. (of course I will probably change everything before April ends)
I just added an Easter postcard to this little vignette.
What Easter treasures do you collect?
This little teapot was a Big Lots find years ago. I think it cost about $2.00. The chalkware chicks were $1.00 from a flea market and I have had the chalkware birdbath since I was a child.
I found this cup last year at an antique mall. I have never seen another like it but if I do, get outta my way, it is mine! Have you ever seen anything so pretty. Yellow daffodils on a black ground. Be still my heart.
I hope you are getting a bit of spring cleaning done without the decorating fairy distracting you from your goals.
Alright, where did I put that microfiber duster?
Have a clean, fresh Monday, P.
