Spring Decorating & Tea


Hi everyone,

As March rolls in I decided it was time to do a little spring decorating around the home.  Spring fever is starting to set in, defined by Merriam-Webster as "a lazy or restless feeling often associated with the onset of spring."

Bunnies are poised and their natural color is a great accompaniment for Easter.  I have lined the shelf with some whimsical cabbage leaves - things are just starting to sprout!  The translucent wire is a string of white lights I have added to the vignette for evening ambiance.  An azalea colored bow with French script hangs below.


A little bunny just looking for a friend.


Some nestled glass eggs in a pretty nest.


Jeweled with glass beads this egg sparkles by the flicker of a flameless votive candle.


A tisket, a tasket, we have a pretty Easter basket!


Our whitewashed basket has a beautiful hand painted lid in spring colors.  It is the perfect size for holding jelly beans :-)


What isn't there to love about spring?  Every day something new and pretty unfolds. 


A vintage bunny with a basket full of carrots for the taking.


I have a "sweet" treat for you today as we sit and enjoy a cup of tea.


This pink teacup and saucer was made by The Hocking (later Anchor Hocking) Glass Company between 1931 - 1937.  This wonderful depression era pattern called Mayfair "Open Rose" is perhaps the best selling and most popular pink pattern that was produced.

Table Top Tuesday @ A Stroll Thru Life

I especially like the little rabbit with the carrots. And my eye caught your pink depression glass right away, as I have similar--but a simpler pattern so probably not a best seller like yours!

Happy new week, Donna! I just love your tea cup and saucer. I am a tea drinker myself, never, ever coffee. Just never did develop a taste for it! My favorite is French Vanilla by Bigelow. Mmmm ~ delicious! It's it grand to have so many flavors. I love so many, and it's always nice to come home to a regular cup of orange pekoe tea, too!

Have a wonderful new week, new month, and almost new season!

Blessings,
Donna
