Spring Is Just Around The Corner!!

We had nice weather earlier this morning, sprinkling on & off now.
Anyway, I went out earlier & looked around the garden. Weeds everywhere!
So for a few hours I pulled & pulled. It was a pleasure actually because I was down at the plants level & could enjoy their blooms up close =)
I snapped a few photos to share with all of you, especially those of you who are in colder climates...Spring Is On It's Way!
Hope these bring a smile to your face and a warmth in your heart.
Enjoy your day!

Entertainment Center Vignette

Now entertainment center & vignette is a contradiction in terms...
at least as far as I'm concerned ;)
But living with children you need to compromise for practicality's sake.
Maybe some day I'll be able to decorate more to my liking. Maybe not.
Anyway, just wanted to share a few of my ideas.
Along the top I've placed a few of my favorite things. The large basket on the bottom corrals a game system & games.
The vintage picnic basket holds some my of vintage textiles, with one peeking over the side. The mason jar hold vintage hankies & jewelry, a dust free way to display. The old trunk on the bottom hides another game system & games. This old clock belonged to my Grandmother. I found the metal "vases" with basket "covers" while clearing out the farm. They are on there tight! Woven directly on, I imagine. This painting was painted by a friend while we were all stationed in Alaska. A pretty handpainted basket holds yet another game system & games under my favorite table, a gift from my Daughter.
Well, there you have it.
