Spring Fever

I love spring.  The promise of new life.  It is so refreshing after the darkness and cold of winter.  Of course, we have gone from spring sunshine and warm temps to rain and chilly temps, but that is a true taste of spring in New England.  I am enjoying daylight saving times and longer days.

A true taste of spring here.

Forsythia in bloom makes me smile.

 A bit of sunshine to enjoy on these cloudy days.

While the weather is a bit gloomy I have been sprucing up the inside of our home a bit here and there.
As we await the return of spring sunshine.
This little bowl is a bit like a nest.  I filled it with twigs, moss and some book page strips.

This was inspired by Jaime's spring decor.
Enjoying lattes with my daughter.
Yum!!  Where's the chocolate syrup?
Invited our neighbors to tea.
Transformed a plain jar.
My daughter wanted a spring decoration for her room.
I started with a plain gravy jar.

Wrapped it with some twine.
Some scrap lace and  bauble I had.
This little decoration was made with things I had on had so it did not cost anything.  For now she has some silk flowers leftover from my wreath but it planning to get out there when we have good weather and fill it with forsythia.

Fun things to pass the time as we wait for the spring sunshine to return.
