Spring is here!

Don't you just love this time of year. Here in Houston the Crape Myrtles are starting to bloom. They line the streets with such vibrant color.
The Azaleas are one of my very favorite. They were amazing on that Home Tour. It's fun to lighten and brighten inside too! I posted about this very thing in a Tuesdays Tip and can't wait to do some projects. I found some pretty fabric at Calico Corners that I want to cover the dining room chairs with.

What do you think?

I love the little nests on the plates, so I leave them out until Easter.
Our favorite Wire Tree adorned with egg ornaments.

I carry the bird pillows at Pineapple Hill and LOVE it so much I had to have one for us.

The Bordallo Pinheiro Green Rabbit Plates in the kitchen window.
My sweet friend, Susie, gave me that beautiful bowl for Christmas. I love it with the Robins Eggs in it.
The little basket is an antique and the bunny a friend made for me 14 years ago.

More little bunnies from over the years.

Isn't that little chick cute, I don't remember where it came from.

There's just something about spring and projects I totally have the bug not to mention how excited I am to work in the garden. Those poor neglected flower beds will be thrilled.
