Thinking Spring

Happy Wednesday! I'm thinking spring! How about you? I have managed to keep a little green alive since December when these little pots of ivy arrived on the scene. Thank goodness they don't need much attention!

I've been really drawn to every garden style vignette that I see lately, so I thought I would start one of my own. And nothing warms my heart more than a little chippy vintage mixed in with my usual china and linens.

I have quite a few little bits of linen that have a spot or a hole but still have the cheeriest snippets of lace attached and are ready to peek out here and there. I find them just as cheery as flowers!

I just have to show you the paper whites that I potted in early December too. They did absolutely nothing for weeks. But when I went to toss them after Christmas, thinking that I had just gotten duds, I spotted a single bit of green popping out on one of the bulbs.

Here they are just really only starting to take off. I'm thinking that there is a problem with the gravel medium I have them in. Any ideas? They have been so slow growing that I wonder where they will end up. Anyway, they have all finally sprouted and I am feeling a little redeemed!

I am cheating with a pot of faux something from Ikea that I had in the shop. It's a good stand in until I can get to the nursery.

I'm due, too, for some cut flowers for my pitchers that spend time in my wicker plant stand. Sometimes I enjoy seeing the chippy lattice, but for now I have just changed out the linens that drape over covering the side.

I am also enjoying a new chippy cement planter vase that I found last summer. I am just crazy about vintage garden stuff, but haven't used it inside very much.

 Not many days left in the month. And our forsythia is already in bloom! But we have lots of windy, cold, and unsettled days ahead.  think just a bit of green here and there is going to get me through!

Happy Hump Day!

And a happy White Wednesday too!

So glad that you stopped by!

that old chippy plant stand is perfect for that ivy. I always love your beautiful white linens and laces. Forsythia is my all time favorite shrub, so bright and cheery. Gosh, don't you miss White Wednesday? I know I do. It was always fun to celebrate the simplicity and freshness of "white".

I love your cute vignettes and lovely lace. I've got hyacinths blooming. It's been a gloomy winter for us. Ready for spring!

Love love love! Beautiful lace with pretty pots of greenery. I love paper whites and when yours bloom they are going to be so pretty. I hope we all see an early Spring. Oh how I want Old Man Winter to leave! Have a great rest of the week.

Such pretty vignettes and love the lace. Saturday 10" of snow, yesterday 80. Today through Sunday cold and rain. The weather has been a real annoyance.

You have forsythia? I have big envy! It's beautiful, Jacqueline -- the lace, the china, your wonderful chippy planter. The photos are splendid -- they really tell the story. A little have there in NM!

Good morning Jacqueline,
I was under the weather this past weekend, so I spent some time quietly reading through your postings and escaping into your Pinterest pages. Your photographs are exquisite! Thank you.
Kind regards, Laura
