~ I'm feeling the Springness~

Hello Guys, I'm so feeling the love today....Look what I found at my front door this morning.... " Springness in a box" Are these not the pretties flowers...they are so Springness and who you ask would send me some Springness well none other than Blondie from Chicago " Blondie's Journal " ....She made this for me sighs...I just love it Jane THANK YOU so much...

I sat it on my table in the entry way.....

Added my little green bird that Lynne from "Lynne's Gifts from the Heart" send me a few years ago....I now have a Blogger loving table ha ha!!

Can you find my walkway into my front door...this I just took a few minutes ago...Now you can see why I love all this Springness as soon as you walk into my entry ha ha!!!

Now Sassy have the right idea with the cold snow.... (No dogs were hurt in this photo shoot...another fake pet I find their easier to house train and walk and No pet sitter's needed ha ha!!)

Just curl up and take a nap....Thank you once again Jane for this Springness you brought into my life today...I'll cherish this always....

May all of you have a GREAT day...I think I'll stay in my old Red Robe and curl up with Sassy and stay warm ha ha!!!

Until next time from my mountain top to yours,

Hugs and smiles Glria

I'm feeling Spring, here, too. The doors are open and I am Spring fluffing all around the condo!:-)

Connie said...

Well, ya know you are loved, sugar, but that little poof with the dog on it is adorable. I think I love that more. ;-) LOL

bj said...

O, what a beautiful spot of spring!
Just lovely.
We have a cold wind blowing today and I am not feeling ONE BIT SPRINGY....boo hoo...guess I better get myself an attitude adjustment and straighten myself up!! WIND does that to me!! Puts me in a grumpy mood...going to just fix myself a snack, a tea and watch a movie!!
hugs, bj

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

So great of you to share your springiness. It is dreary and raining today. I love that little birdie. Is that really a fake dog??

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Your flowers are indeed just gorgeous. What a treat. I love them. Yes, I do agree, bloggers are just the greatest ever. Hugs, Marty

xinex said...

The flower arrangement that Janie made is so pretty, Gloria. Your whole table top looks so refreshing. It is finally springlike here weatherwise...Christine

Salmagundi said...

No spring weather here in the Colorado foothills either; but, I don't mind. We had a little grovel snow this afternoon - just wish it would just snow instead of messing around. Enjoy the rest of the week - stay in your red robe. Being older does have some advantages!! Sally

Debbie-Dabble Blog and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

It was in the high 50's here in Pa. today and the snow is melting!! Lot of rain coming for the weekend so we will be rid of the snow soon! Love the pretty flowers!

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Gloria! Oh, what springness that has sprung in your entry! I love it and sweet of Jane to make and send this to you! Everything on your pretty table is beautiful!
You still have snow? Oh, my goodness. For heaven's sake, do stay in your red robe and stay warm with little Sassy! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh, that was so sweet. And they are so pretty. How nice to have a blogger love table. I can't think of anyone who deserves it more. I am feeling sad for all that snow you must endure. Its about 70 and sunny here today. I've been outside starting on my spring garden cleaning. Don't feel bad tho, there will be rain and chilly temps here for the next 10 days. This is just a teaser. Take care.

Lottie said...

That snow on the walk way says it all! Stay warm and enjoy Spring inside!

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Gloria,

Love your touches of Spring in your home.
Also the snow outside and your darling little pet, looks so real.

Happy Thursday

Sharon said...

Looks like spring on the in side and still looks like winter on the out side. I just love your home and all your vintage treasures. Wish I could come and sit and have tea with you.

Kat said...

Such a pretty arrangement! And after seeing what was on your walkway I understand why you were so happy to receive it! Sassy is too cute - and no vet bills lol. Hugs, Kat

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

The arrangement that Janie made is so pretty. That gal has talent and it shows.
I like how you have arranged your table with the birdie and the clock.

Little pooch on the stool is too cute.


Myrna said...

When I saw the news this morning about snow elevation at 2000 ft, I wondered if you'd gotten snow! It looks beautiful. So wonderful to be able to stay all cozy and warm in your beautiful home!
Hope we can get together one day!

Heather said...

Sassy is too cute. Love her name too!

Blondie's Journal said...

I think the flowers look perfect next to Lynn's birds (she's a sweetie). And I am so glad you like the arrangement. I'm having fun making them and giving them to people I love. Like you, sweet lady. Stay warm!! :-)


Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

Oh Love your springness in a box! How sweet -- gosh golly look at your snow today! We had a delightful spring day today -- but nothings blooming yet -- hope that springness arrives "outside the box" at your house soon! Thanks for your delightful visit to my table today -- wish you could join us!

Jewel Sauls said...

Thank you for sharing that dose of Springness with us all! Your dog is such a cutie!!!

Justine said...

Ooh, so pretty and it's Gloria blue!!!

I have to say though, your fake pets are kinda freakin' me out!

Justine :o )

Gypsy Heart said...

Just beautiful!! Indeed, it looks like spring...until you showed us the snow. :-) We've had warmer temps and yesterday was perfect ~ 75F and bright sunshine. A bit of rain this morning but it stopped.

Thanks so much for sharing the gorgeous flowers!


Kimberly said...

I love that clock in your entry. The little Yorkie was too funny. I have a real Yorkie (Gucci), and she does not like it when I bring out the camera...like I am the paparazzi or something.

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

I could use a touch of spring, too. The snow here is almost all melted and I can see my daffodils just starting to poke out of the ground.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Good Morning Gloria,
Oh, isn't that Jane sweet!! I just love the flowers next to the birdie inside your gorgeous home!
You always make me smile dear friend! Sometimes your notes make me laugh outloud and hubby always wants to know why I am chuckling. I just say Gloria! She's a hoot!
Heck, maybe I can hitchhike to Las Vegas to see you and Chari! Just kidding I think that maybe a little dangerous!
Big Hugs,

Sue said...

Hi Gloria,
What a beautiful touch of spring. your home is always so beautiful and inviting, And I think I will let you keep the snow, it looks much prettier on your lawn than mine. lol

Thanks for coming by, and sharing that beautiful memory with me, I was so blessed. Stay warm and maybe soon we will all be able to open our windows and let the warm air in.

nannykim/spindlecottage said...

Oh, I can't believe the snow in the pic!! It has been in the 70's here this week, FINALLY!!! Poor you--you did need that touch of Spring!

The Victorian Parlor said...

This blogger is lovin' the clock on the table-it's beautiful! What a sweet gesture of spring from your friend:). Our spring has begun as we have had temps in the 70's the past few days.



BTW, I thought the dog was real-I even went 'awwww' when I saw it!

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Gloria,
How lovely! Your home is so pretty. I could visit with you for hours.
Take care and enjoy your sweet day,

Barb said...

Gloria, just lovely. Everything is so lovely and so spring-like. Love it.

Hugs to you!

Barb ♥

Sue said...

Oh, isn't Janie a sweetheart? They look beautiful on your shelf. I can't believe you still have all that snow? We are actually seeing hints of spring around here and hoping we don't end up with a last dose of winter!

It makes me happy that she made YOU happy!

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

How pretty! You have nice friends to send you such lovely gifts!


Chari at Happy To Design said...

Mornin' Sis...

I was so happy to read your note this morning, Girl! I was hoping that you were feeling better...shoot! I'm runnin' pretty slow myself...I'm beginning to think it's pyschological...I have a big case of "Spring Fever"! It's been cold and snowy at my place too...but we have just had a skiff of snow for the last three days. It melts off by afternoon! Wow...you guys really have gotten it! Ohhh yes...we are both going to really enjoy that warmer weather in Vegas...can't wait, Sis!!! I finally got my jeans ordered! Hehe! Thought I'd better get my hiney in gear or my hiney might be showin' in Vegas! Hehe! Sure would be nice if I could just go to the store for jeans but I'm so tall...I always have to order extra tall length! Anyway, I guess I'm set! Have you and Len been checking out the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly site? They finally have a schedule up there...we printed one off! Girl, we just about died when we seen that they have things going up till 6am in the morning! Sheeshh...they aren't kidding about Vegas never sleeps! Hehe! Girl, I really am getting sooo excited though and I've been trying so hard to keep settled down...otherwise the wait seems too long...know what I mean? Hehe!


Sis, I love, love, LOVE your new Spring bouquet! Those have got to be the prettiest shade of lavender/blues ever! It looks absolutely beautiful on your entry way table! How sweet of Jane to send you those pretty flowers!!! She sure is a dear lady! Girlfriend, I fall for your faux pooch every time! Hehe! As soon as I seen your photo...I thought...when did Gloria get a dog? Hehe! You know I'm blonde, Girlfriend! Your little Sassy girl is just too cute! Ohhh...and I love that photo of her on your gorgeous footstool!!! Sis, I don't think I've ever seen that pretty chair before! Or have I? I'm tellin' ya...I live in such a brain fog anymore...it's not funny! I'm like that goose that wakes up in a different world every day! Hehe! Anyway, I sure don't remember seeing that pretty chair! It's gorgeous...love that fabric!!! Ohhh...and that beautiful decorative pillow...just tops that pretty chair off so beautifully! What a treat to get to see this!

Well Sweetie, you know that I'm praying for you! Girl, you've got to get to feeling better!!! It just hurts my heart so bad to think of you feeling bad! Get some rest...tell Sassy to move over! Wait...that stool isn't very big to curl up on...Sheesh, I know you're just a little thing but I think you'd be much more comfortable on the couch! Hehe!

Love you, Sweetie...

Good Morning Sweetie...
I love your post. So pretty. Ofcourse everything you put together is like GOLD. You do such beautiful work. I would just love to walk through your home. I know it is as elegant as you are.

I did some investigative work, and I know I signed up to follow you a long, long time ago, but for some reason I have lost some of my blogs I am following from my list. So I have not been seeing your new posts. I popped over here, and have signed up to follow again. Hopefully it will stay in place for awhile? At any rate my sweet friend, I am following you, can post again to you, and can see when you post.

Hope you have a beautiful Friday sweet friend. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

You little 'Blogger Lovin' Table' just sings of Springness! (notice how I am buidin' up my vocabulary today) Heeeheehe!

It's all so pretty even that ball of fur on your charming little footstool.

God bless you sister and spend the weekend totally enjoying your Springeness!
