Happy March! I was hoping that once March was here, the snow would miraculously disappear and Spring would finally arrive. (A girl can dream!) Instead, we got - you guessed it - more snow! Along with frigid temperatures, it looks and feels nothing like Spring.
Not to be deterred from bringing touches of Spring into my home, I've been indulging in florals - both real and faux - in soft pastel colours.
Pretty pink hyacinths from a pot of Spring bulbs I purchased. It was jam packed with daffodils, tulips, crocus and a hyacinth. The hyacinth blooms were too heavy for the stem so I cut it and placed it in a vase of its own - but not before photographing it! The scent was wonderful!
These beautiful blue silk hydrangeas have been a staple in my decor every Spring. Although I prefer the real thing, these will do until the real ones come along.
I've been seeing rocking horses set inside empty fireplaces all over the web so I thought I'd put my little dog there. I learned to walk with this. Apparently, I fell head over heels with it and walked it right out of the store! My horrified parents realized that I wasn't going to part with it and decided to purchase it for me.
I recently made a couple of green moss balls when I couldn't find the size I wanted. They're so easy to make and the touch of green adds much needed colour.
More sunshine yellow! These daffs were in the same pot as the hyacinth. They've finished blooming now and are put away in the basement to dry out so I can eventually plant them in the garden.
It might still be Winter outside, but inside I'm surrounded by Spring! Any signs of Spring where you live? I'm counting the days!
