As color slowly begins to re-appear outside my window,
I was inspired to take a tip from nature and add a little pop of color to the bookcases.
First I went searching in the nooks and crannies of my house for a few daffodil related items. The little gardening fork is actually a Christmas ornament I found in the (well picked over) clearance bin at Kohl's.
I pulled out some of my yellow pottery pieces and a few wee birdies, which remind me of my new alarm clock ... the cheerful chorus of the spring songbirds.
As I sit here typing this morning I can hear the furnace running and one bird outside the window singing his little heart out. It won't be long until the mating game will commence and new little bird families will pop up here, there and everywhere. Aaah, sweet springtime... a time for new life in so many forms.
A blue leaf?
Sure, why not :).
On a recent thrifting adventure I came across this oil painting and was debating the tacky vs. charming issue. My sister-in-law came over to see what I was looking at and exclaimed "oh my gosh, it's you!" Ha Ha. Okay, that takes care of that decision.
I liked the pop of pink in the painting so I went searching for some pink to add to the mix.
Just my little way of bringing a breath of springtime inside the house on this late winter day.
