~a spring vignette~

Happy almost Friday!!

my favorite day of the week....



it has been one stormy week here
in the good ol' northwest.....
it's funny ~ every single
year at about this time....I'm ready
to pack up & move somewhere sunny....


like seriously.....pack up & move....
every s.i.n.g.l.e. year.....


then usually just when I'm about ready to lose it  in the nick of time......we get an amazing
spring day.... or shall we say spring moment?
we had one of those today....sunny for about 3 1/2 minutes....


I love pussywillow....it's been awhile since
I've had any & I just cannot believe
how amazingly soft it is!

like bunny ears...so soft....
btw....this is an awesome book.....


Mr. T & T gave it to me for Christmas
and I have really enjoyed it....


I hung a few vintage french postcards
from these darling little antique clips...
also from France.....
they are seriously the cutest things ever...


aren't they just the cutest?

ok...our motto....laugh with joy.....!
as often as possible!! :)


I also got this darling little Johnson Bros. tea cup and saucer with a hyacinth bulb ready to bloom...
...same antique store....



I think the little cup & all was only $6!
I thought that was a pretty good deal....

I decided I  liked the vignette better without
the hyacinth ~ but had to show you anyway....


well that's all I've got today.....

I really hope you all have a wonderful
weekend!!!


Thanks for coming by!




xoxo,

Shellagh, your vignette is charming. I adore pussy willows. I need to find some fresh ones for this spring. The little antique French clips were a great find.
Hope spring arrives for you soon. I think it's already here in TX. ~ Sarah

Hi Shellagh!
Let me try this again. What I was saying is that I'm in love with your window and the old table and everything on it. It's all so lovely.

I wish I could
extend my sympathy
for your gloomy
rain, but geez,
you don't still have
SNOW on the ground!!
And YOU have pussy
willows....sigh....
Those little clips
are adorable, too.
So, see, you really
have it all going
on : ) !!
