A TOUCH OF SPRING

I'm so not through with Winter yet; but for those who are anxiously awaiting Spring here is a touch of the Spring/Easter season at our house!

 The bunny is a vintage Easter candy container, and the small tin basket is also vintage.  The old postcard signifies the meaning of Easter.
 To view the full table-top quilt, check out my quilting blog here.
I'm fortunate to live in Colorado, so I know we will have another month (or two) of occasional winter.  Bring it on, I say; but for the rest of my family here is a touch of Spring!

I'll be joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for her Spring Cloche party on Tuesday, March 13.

Hi Sally...

I'm with you, my friend! I'm not in a hurry to do spring decorating since we have more winter to go. I always get so anxious this time of the year though...seeing everyone's beautiful spring posts. I love your beautiful touch of spring! What a lovely vignette. Your quilt and it's pretty colors definitely represents the upcoming season! I love your cloche as well...decorated with vintage Easter! Gorgeous!!! Thanks for sharing your pretties with us today!

How are you doing, my friend? I hope that my note finds you and your family doing well. Things are beginning to settle down here a bit. I'm ready to get back to my blogging and visiting.

Have a wonderfully sweet weekend!

Love ya,
Chari

I think the last of my ice/snow melted today. The next few days are going to be very warm, but parts of my garden are in the shade all day so I don't like working there until later in the spring!Seems I'm a little more particular these days about being outside.♥♫

No Spring decor out yet for me Sally. I am so busy with the time I do get trying to get the creative space worked on.

Love that bunny in a cloche and your quilt is so beautiful and Spring time pretty!

Looking forward to getting together with you soon!!!

I love it Sally. Since I am vintage I recognized the little tin basket and candy container, right away.:-) They are wonderful!

My home is not yet ready for Spring decos. Hopefully, if I am not lazy to climb up to the attic and grab the Easter thingies, §;-)

Bunny is cute and seem having fun inside your beautiful cloché.

I was chomping at the bit to get some spring/Easter things out. The weather keeps teasing us but I needed to see some pastel colors! Your little bunny fits right in with spring decor, Sally. I'm sure you're getting some sunny days even if the temps are cold. That's what I miss about New Mexico- those beautiful blue skies! Gray Ohio, now.....

Love the vintage pieces! They are perfect to show off under a cloche!

Miss Kitty said...

Hi Sally! Such an adorable cloche you have put together for those of us who are experiencing Spring. Two of my grown children live in Colorado now...they love the cooler weather than they grew up in down here in Alabama. I saw your cut cloche at "A Stroll Thru Life".
