…the results of an ice storm...pretty but dangerous! Fortunately for me, my trees are not mature and have fared very well with only a few broken branches, unlike some of my neighbors who lost not only power but also entire trees! Yikes!
Miss Isabella says she’s had enough of winter and is ready for spring to arrive!
So I am grateful to have these little bits of spring brightening up my day! I have nestled a pot of hyacinths, on the verge of bursting into bloom, into some burlap to add texture…
…and placed them in one of my favorite white tureens…a thrift store find from several years ago.
I layered in some double-sided striped and floral napkins in colors that reflect the hyacinths and topped them off with a few vintage silverplate forks in my favorite grape-y pattern, tied with jute twine to add even more texture.
I finished off the centerpiece with a little vintage-look faux chalkware lamb...a favorite find from Wisteria last year. Doesn’t he have the sweetest little face?
I corralled it all in a small round woven tray and added it to my handmade burlap table square. I love the simplicity and the little bit of our soon-to-arrive (I hope) spring! And best of all...I love the way the hyacinths are filling my home with their sweet fragrance!
And just in case you are looking for more hints of spring, here’s my springy centerpiece with lots of blue and white and sunny yellow daffodils…another favorite spring flower!
And even though I created this centerpiece using my vintage finds from a thrifting trip with friends last July, I think it would fit right in with spring! I was so excited to find the vintage lamb mold and couldn’t wait to share it with you! The little swirly vintage molds and the quadruple silverplate duck head sugar bowl were prized finds at a local antique fair.
And finally, you may recognize some of the elements of my French spring vignette, such as the little chalkware lamb. You can also see a vintage silverplate fork, tied with jute twine and added to a burlap insert in a thrift store frame. The cute little French flash cards were a gift from a sweet friend. I finished it off with egg cups filled with violas on a vintage silverplate tray. Can you tell that lambs and spring flowers are some of my favorite ways to welcome spring?
How about you? Are signs of spring starting to appear in your home?
