Bitten by the Spring Bug!


As I dusted off this table on my back patio, and put my winter snowmen away …


I couldn’t wait to frame some art that I was organizing from these books


Abby's springy “Spring” poem framed and hung ...


I brought out my cheery Good Will $2 runner ...


$1 Garage sale flowers ...


And added some springy accessories ...


POOL sign hung, and serving trays ready for alfresco dining ...


Am I a bit early?

Have you been bitten by the Spring bug yet?

My friend Melissa has a great list of 20 Little Things to Look Forward to in Spring - check it out here!  Take a look at Rhoda's post, here, for some more great ways to fluff up your Spring!

Thanks for mentioning the spring party, Sandy! It was a lot of fun & I think we were all bitten by Spring Fever now. Your outdoors looks so pretty, I love that pool sign. xo

It is officially spring (although it snow a bit here today). I love that table runner. I was thinking about making a beaded one for spring/summer, but that painted one has me going in a different direction.

Love your cute decorations, Sandy, especially your daughter's sweet poem.

It's definitely not too early for spring here in Florida. My windows are flung wide open, a gorgeous breeze is sailing through, and we're basking in it all!

Blessings to you, my friend.

So Springy, Sandy. We have been bitten mightily over here! I have pictures of our garden up, if you would care to see.

Not too early at all. My kids went for a dip in a friends pool today so we say..."bring on spring".

Christy said...

Oh, you can never be too early to celebrate spring! After the cold white winter we had, we were bound to have spring fever!

Thanks for mentioning my post!

Oh how cute you are! I love this! And it is so cheery. I love the Spring saying...such a different spin than the original wreath. I love that you admit to Goodwill and yard sales. My two favorite places in the world!

You can never be too early for crisp, colorful cheer!

Right on time!! The calendar says the Vernal Equinox has come, and thus Spring. The blizzard outside the church windows was fascinating yesterday--but of course it didn't stick. Enjoy spring produce of asparagus and strawberries(from CA, I know) and get those beet and pea seeds planted. The seasons refresh our hearts, minds and souls with promise. Each one is "my favorite" when it arrives!!!

I thought of you today!!! I went thrift shopping and found bamboo chargers and place mats for 4 for under 410..whoo hoo!!!!!

I also got Miller new Ralph Lauren bed sheets at 450 thread count for under $15....at TJ Max......wished you had been with me girl..I was on a roll.

Definitely bitten by the Spring bug! We've been outside every waking minute, I think. :)
I love the cheery GW table runner - what a fun find!
