SPRING is in the air....somewhere.
I have several pieces of vintage ironstone that I move around the living/dining rooms in different seasons. Sometimes they sit it out in a cupboard but I like to display it when I can. I often have the white pitcher on the table with real or faux flowers in it. Today they are faux tulips and pussywillows. I was going to buy some fresh tulips at the grocery store but decided to wait. And the pussywillows aren't making their appearance in the roadside ditches yet. These will have to do.
It's officially SPRING today in the northern hemisphere and I'm ready to celebrate it even if the weather and temperature don't show it.
The aqua mug is from Medicine Hat Potteries in Alberta. I love the colour of course. It holds two vintage Easter eggs. The white pudding bowl is one of a set of 3 and holds faux ceramic eggs. Did you notice the pretty aprons in the background? I found them at Value Village a few years ago. They aren't in great shape but make a pretty accent to the wall space between the kitchen and dining room for spring.
Another ironstone bowl in my favourite aqua colour (I have a pink one too) serves up some pastel eggs next to a jar of speckled eggs.
This is an old calendar page that I cut out and put in an old picture frame. The calendar artwork is by John Sloan and I always loved to buy his calendars from Lang. I love this one because of the old farmhouse, apple tree, sheds, and the blooming forsythia bush, tulips and trees. It's speaks of SPRING to me.
I want to wish each of you a beautiful SPRING day even if it's not looking like it where you live yet. It will come. I keep telling myself that every day even though we have over 4 feet of snow in most areas. Spring weather will come eventually and we'll be ready for it. It is to warm up to +2C today and it's a gorgeous sunny day. ENJOY!
HAPPY SPRING TO YOU!
