Celebrate spring by decorating your breakfast egg cup with fresh blades of grass. Simply place a few green leaves around the edges of the cup before the egg. Breakfast becomes a spring surprise.
Where is spring? It finally (here in Ohio) hit 5o today & people were trully rejoicing. Seems we are all a bit more than ready for it. With spring comes fun & pretty artsy ideas & decorating. I love the shabby chic & pastel look. The estate auctions / garage sales & just plain fresh air! It's a wonderful time to shop for those oh so old & discarded vintage treasures. Right now I frequent several thrift stores & it makes my day when I find something special.
I also look forward to the flower gardens. I'm a perennial grower with a few containers for annuals. I have to get some of my favorite Pansy every year. Last year I started a darling little Fairy Garden. Do you know about these? :0) It began long ago in Victorian times with little girls tending their own wee flower gardens basically so that Mother could get things done. The fairy gardens can be rustic or not. It's a very personal thing. It's very interesting that they now have developed actual wee or miniature plants - How adorable right? Yes! I even had a miniature evergreen tree. I don't think it survived the winter but most everything else did hopefully. I'll take a picture when it's back this SPRING! Until then fairy wishes your way.
