More Snow, More Spring

Yes, it is true, we did have snow over the weekend.  Upsetting though it may be, Spring is in the house and that's all that really matters. 

My dining room hutch got the Spring treatment. 



The left side...my favorite candle holders from Target (purchased quite a few years ago).  I added a little burlap to the tall candles.   Pewter pitcher found at an antique store.    I used one of the burlap frames from my Winter mantel, but added a little bunny ornament to it. 



The right side...the other candleholder and my pink Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage bowls.  I love them!  I have seen these plates & bowls in the prettiest tablescapes throughout blogland.  Who knew they'd also work nicely in a vignette?



In the center, a Wisteria cloche filled with robin's eggs set atop a pedestal dish.
 

A small bird's nest wreath over the mirror and that completes my vignette. 


And now a message.......................

Ok Mr. Winter, you may think you're funny, but you're not.  I got Spring going on...so there!  Take that and be gone with you!

Thank you for allowing me to get that off my chest!

It sure is looking "Springy" around your house. Everything looks absolutely beautiful. Love, love, love your candle sticks. Hope Spring makes an apperance soon both there and here too. It's been cold, cloudy and gloomy here. So miss the sun.
