...has gone from sunny spring weather to fall like storms to winter snow showers here in Holland over the last couple of weeks. But this is pretty much typical for March here. This is the scene I awoke to this morning. I knew the snow would melt away before I had a chance to get dressed so I asked Jos to take a quick photo for me this morning before he left for work. Now to me anymore, a few flakes are something to get excited about.
But it is spring here with the bulb flowers all starting to blossom. I have been putting out my Easter decorations this week. Yesterday, I went to a pretty little village to enjoy a day out for lunch and shopping with two friends. We had a fun day and this is one of my purchases. I found this lacy looking metal plate which looks perfect for one of my cloches.
I love vintage (reproduction) cards and this one I saved from about 20 years ago. My mother and father had sent it to me and I use it with my decorations ever since. Isn't it pretty?
I have to dig out my crazy quilt spring tablerunner for my dining room table but I did put one of my vintage cloches on display with a nest and eggs along with one of my old pieces of stitching.
Simplicity is best with spring decorations I think so I placed some straw, primroses and a glass plant spray bottle in a wooden tray on my coffee table.
And finally, remember that bunny I showed you last time? His twin brother is sitting on an end table with a vase of white violets and my vintage card.
Easter is so close now. Are you decorating? What kind of decorations do you like at this time of year?
Thank you all for the comments about my living room! I wish you could stop in and see it for real especially in the evening light when it is at its prettiest. Can you believe that a realtor told us that if we wanted to sell our house we would have to paint out our red walls and make them white. I did paint away my pretty linden green walls in my bedroom a couple of years ago when we were trying to sell and will never do that again.
