~Come on Spring~

Good Morning guys, I'm so sick of this white stuff lol!! This is my driveway YUK!!! Enough already...I want to see spring sighs...


So I started adding "Springness" is that a word...to my house

Made me a cute little bird's nest tassel to hang from my coffee table cloche....

Put out my little brown birdies....

Then moved into the kitchen....I just love this Spode plate I found at TJMaxx last time I went...

Another little tassel I made for "Springness" of course its a snow bunny ha ha!!


Hung it on my all time favorite Cloche I got from Lidy at "French Garden House" is it not a beauty....Added some tarts and apples under it... Also got the tarts from Lidy don't they look real YUM!!!


Sat it on one of my Lacy tin chargers and blue/white plate and white/silver cake stand....
Just made a new flower spray to go on my New Springness wreath holder...does this not say spring to you....I just love the mama bird feeding her babies...
Ok guys I'm tired now...so I better curl up and go back to doing what I do best...This last photo is just here for Phyllis " Around the House" aka Tina's mama....she wanted a picture of my pets well here it is girl...Its fake but does it still count ha ha!! Girls if you haven't been to her blog buckle up your seat belt and go by and be prepared to have your socks knock right off...When my house grows up it wants to be hers ha ha!!

Hope all of you have a GREAT weekend....Thanks for coming by my mountain top today....

Until next time from my mountain to yours ,

Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

I will take springness as a word, especially when it brings such apparent beauty!

Connie said...

I love that pix of your driveway, but I know you're probably sick of it by now. Your photos today have given me an idea. I'll blog about it when and if I do it.

Brrr...looking at the snow makes me cold (it is beautiful though:). I hope that spring arrives soon but until then your 'springness' decorating is beautiful! I really like the tassle that you made-it's gorgeous!!!

Blessings,

Kim

Lovely springness in your home.

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

I like your springness, Gloria. We are at the lake. Just arrived a little while ago. Most of the snow is gone, except for the north side of buildings and fields, etc. Of course, that could all change. We've had ice storms and no electricity over Easter and heavy snows in late April!!:-)

Happy weekend!

Blondie's Journal said...

Yes, it's beginning to look like springness is arriving (except out your window!). I love your tassels, I never thought to put one on a cloche. And thank you again for the beautiful tassel you made me!! I didn't know Lidy had cloches, I have the hardest time finding them.

Love your precious kitty. At least you don't need a litter box! ;-)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Of course springness is a word, Gloria, and you've proven it here. Lots of great springness for us to see! :-)

Love the tassels. They are as cute as a bug's ear... or maybe I should say a bunny'e ear. Whatever. They are darling! So are YOU...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Sorry about the snow - I sure hope we don't get anymore. Your Springness decorations are very pretty - you did a great job. That is the kind of pet I need, since my allergies are so bad.
Enjoy your weekend.

Deborah said...

I can't wait for spring too! I have spring decorations around the house also!
Have a great weekend!

You do the most adorable tassels, Gloria! I am so proud of mine. It is one of my treaured possessions..but then I've told you that! Anyway...I am so proud of it!
You've got snow? Well, of course you do. I forget where you are sometimes and think you are right up the road a tad. :) NOT!
Hugs to you, Sweetie!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh I love all of your spring and your cloches and tassels are just way too wonderful. Now save those pictures to add to your others you will do for the Spring Cloche Party on April 2nd. Love them. Hugs, Marty

Sue said...

I am so looking forward to spring, too, Gloria! I started taking things out yesterday- my birds and nests. I shopped for some bunnies at one of my favorite store, too. The snow is trying to melt with the sun being out, but it is still cold and damp out. Yikes, when will we get sunshine AND higher temperatures?! Hope you're keeping warm up there on that mountain! :-) hugs, Sue

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

I thought that was a real cat! I'm so sorry to see all that snow. We're finally hitting the 50's here. I can't wait to go outside and play in the dirt. I love all your springness. Its cheery and happy and hopeful. And very pretty.

Kathy said...

Hi Gloria!!!!
Just visited Blondie and saw the most darling bunny tassel...
I wonder who made that!...HHmmmmm.

Great job! Looks so cute in her kitchen!

Come on Spring....get over here!

Justine said...

I love your springness, Gloria! But... I also love all that gorgeous white stuff outside!

Welcome to our little empty nest. said...

LOVE all your spring vignettes! I even think the pictures of the snow are beautiful. We're overcast.... Wish the weather would do one or the other! :)

Have a great weekend Gloria!

Patriotic Mom said...

Gloria, Everything looks so springy except for outside. I feel your pain. Your cloches look lovely! Where did you get that spring hanger? I love it and your swag looks terrific on it! I also love your tassels, where did you find the bunny with the wire hanger? I bought some things to make my first tassel but I was going to use a ceramic bird that does not have a hanger. I thought I could still work out a way to hang it. What do you think ? Joan

Lady Katherine said...

I love the spring you brought into your home. I was looking at some of your older post, your home is lovely and when mine grows up it wants to be like yours!
Not sure if you know, now that I am better, I decided to follow one of my dreams, I have been wanting to do for a long long time. I having Tea Time Tuesday on my blog starting March 9th and would love for you and your home to be there. PS I love the blacksmith table!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Oh, you still have snow? I'm sure we will get another dose of it, but we actually had sunshine and 50 degrees today...bliss. I wish the same for you, soon. Your spring touches are wonderful, I'm going to work on mine tomorrow.

Pat said...

LOVE all the springness! Oh my, that snow is wayyyy too much for me. We've made history here in Texas this winter with all our snow. I fully realize I could not live where it snowed all the time.

Anyway, your creations are quite lovely ~ you are very talented! Thanks for sharing glimpses of spring, the birds, flowers, etc.

xoxo

Mr. Webster needs to add 'springness' to his dictionary.

Enjoy this week, Ms. Gloria!
