FIRST SIGNS OF SPRING

FIRST SIGNS OF SPRING!!!!

Cold and windy here in northern ONTARIO...

I'm yearning for SPRING....

My kitchen table is ready.  
A bouquet of yellow tulips in an old white teapot
  nestled in a tool 
caddy.


  Actually a reproduction that I made.

Love how it turned out.
ENJOY!!

  1. Ahhhh ... so pretty! I'm usually looking forward to Spring by now, but we haven't had winter yet! Very strange.

  3. Hi Linda, I too am yearning for spring but I know its months off still. WE've have such beautiful weather here in Colorado-so dry and I'm not anxious for snow. I love the tulips in the old teapot-so chic. I just bought a friend a Cyclamen and I love how much it reminds me of spring.
    Have a great day.

  4. Spring can't get here fast enough for me, but I think we probably have a few more months of the cold stuff here. I love the tool carrier. I'll check and see if you have a tutorial on it.

  8. Hello Linda,

    I can't wait the Spring too. I guess, we have the same feelings. If you ever visit Stockholm *wink you find what I mean.

    So cozy here...

    Happy TTT,

  9. What a sunny sight on this cold day! Love how you have it all nestled in the white wooden box! I guess in Ontario you won't see Spring for a
    l-o-n-g time!

  22. What a pretty vignette! Love the tool caddy! I can't imagine how long it must be until spring in northern Ontario! Hang in there!

  23. I love the way you can just reach to the caddy and grab your setting!..Beautiful and utilitarian centerpiece!

  24. It turned out beautifully! We haven't had a very hard winter yet in Illinois, but it has been gray way too many days. I love tulips and I think a bouquet of them can brighten the entire house. I am hoping that my trip later to Walmart will produce some of my own. I haven't seen any there yet. You dishes look beautiful...I'm inspired to pull out my whites!
