Welcome Spring!

                                                                   Welcome Spring!

                                                   I am always excited to welcome spring!

                                                   We had a milder winter with
                                                   hardly any snow this year so most Islanders
                                                   were happy with that...all but outdoor winter
                                                   sports fans anyway.

                                                   Soon, I will be making daily checks around the
                                                   garden to see what is starting to show signs of
                                                    life. Our spring here tends to drag out a bit and
                                                    we often get an early spring snowfall or two,
                                                    but still we know spring is on the way!

Little bouquets of tulips

English Ironstone and tulips
are ready for an afternoon
tea time.

                                                             I love bright and sunny days with
                                                             the sun streaming in.

I am looking forward to lots of
spring color in our garden soon!

Happy Spring!

Coastal Style

I hope you had a great weekend....

the last one of winter!

A few weeks ago I found a large summer scarf
at a thrift store for a few dollars. I bought it, not
to wear but to make coastal style pillows
with for our summer cottage.
I was able to make 3 pillows and cover
an old lampshade with it.....not bad
for $3.

A cute coastal style style mug from
the Dollar Store.

Pretty teacups are more my style.

                       I have enjoyed adding touches of blue
                     and white to our little seaside cottage
            bit by bit!

                                                  Looking forward to relaxing spring/summer days
                                                             at the cottage .....coming soon!
                                                                 Someday, I will show the before and after
                                                                 shots but it is still a work in progress.

                                                                                   Thank you for stopping by,
