We Need a Touch of Spring Around Here

When I opened the front door to go to church yesterday morning this is what I saw.   The snowflakes were huge.   It was a slow and slippery drive to church.

I had the day off today so the first thing I decided to do was add a touch of spring to the inside of the house.  It was still pretty cold outside.

I pulled out a spring tablecloth and realized that I had to shorten the table, which is extended to the maximum.  Then I had another idea. I have two of the same tablecloth, I will sew them together to fit the table fully extended.  We leave it that way so that it is ready for the family to visit each week.

I laid the two table clothes side by side to match the design.

Of course, they were a little off and didn't quite match up.

Here they are sewn together.  The bunny has two noses but I don't think anyone will notice but me.

Here it is, table fully extended with a tablecloth that fits.

I pulled out a few spring decorations to brighten things up.

I make these paper bunnies many years ago, this one I made for my Mom

This planter was a Christmas gift from some dear friends.  The nest and eggs say spring.

Oh, and we can't forget to share my "Peeps"

I am trying to add some spring to other parts of the house but we'll try to share that another day.
Happy Almost Spring!

  1. Oh no! Not snow! It has been so beautiful here, I just know it's teasing us. Your snow will probably be on its way to us soon. I don't even want to think about it!

    Your touches of Spring are all so pretty. Hopefully, they'll melt that snow away for you!
    I love the tablecloth (great idea to sew 2 together) and your Peeps garland is too cute!

  2. Oh, all that snow! We didn't get any. It was very strange. And has been in the 80's for almost a week. Even more strange. We've been outside taking advantage for sure!

  3. A lovely touch of much needed Spring you added!

  4. It is snowing here too. I am in Oregon. I am hoping for pretty spring weather..someday! It looks like you live in a beautiful neighborhood. Drive carefully!
