Spring is in the Air

Spring is in the air ~ well, not today ~ but yesterday it was.
Yesterday was near 70 degrees and today its blowing fluffy white stuff around and getting down to single digits again.
So to celebrate spring "nearly here" I broke out a few spring decorations in the living room.
 I've had this picket carrier for several years now and have never used it.  I've thought about selling it, but always envisioned it with aqua Ball jars and flowers.  Finally ~ with white tulips I think it is the perfect combination.
Love the chippy paint giving it such delightful character.
I borrowed the little blue birds from my daughter's room, but she isn't here right now, so she won't mind.
The white rusty finial I found at a barn sale and it gives the arrangement some height, while the egg watercolor fills in the background.
The watercolor egg print I bought at a yard sale last summer for $.50 and framed it with a clearance frame and double mat from Michael's ~ all for under $15.  An inexpensive way to bring a touch of spring to the room.

Spring should be back in a few days, but until then, I'll just enjoy the happiness that white tulips in aqua Ball jars brings.

That's such a lovely vignette; those little birds are so sweet. Me, too, yesterday was warm and walked the dogs and moved furniture around; today snow! Hot tea and magazines tonight. I'm digging out my white tulips tomorrow; thanks for lifting me up!

Oh friend!!! Your vignette is beautiful! I can not believe that you got that watercolor for 50 cents! That is a steal! And I am so glad you kept that chippy white picket....It is gorgeous paired with your mason jars and white tulips! Goodness! And the birds are so pretty! We got slammed last night with ice and snow but my fingers are crossed that we are going to warm up here soon! Happy spring friend and a wonderful week to you!! Nicole xoxo said...

love your sweet blue birds and your spring touches!
