Welcome to Spring...

I am running a bit late welcoming in spring!

In truth, I think spring is running a bit late in arriving
this year...

(click photos to enlarge)

But, I am filled with cheer...


I adore old vintage aprons
in their cheery colors with ric-rack edges...

Since my kitchen and I are still separated
with the nasty floor refinishing...
it means less cooking,  less dishes
and it's easy to see the romantic side of an apron
 when it hangs lazily on the back of a chair


a crisp bow
tied from it's soft faded fabric...

(windflowers and unknown white blooms)

It's pocket filled with posies...


Happy Spring to You!


I am joining

Thanks for stopping by today,

Hi Bella

I love the fabric of your vintage apron. The colours are especially delicate and pretty, perfect with the posy of flowers.

Happy Spring to you too. The pollen is flyin here so we are in the midst of it for sure and it in the 80's and I am cutting grass/weeds. The apron is lovely. You would like some I have that belong to Joe's mother from the 50's. ♥O

A lovely post to welcome your Spring in. We have just entered Autumn here in Australia. The colors of the posy are sweet and look great in the pocket of your apron.

How creative putting flowers in the pocket! Here in NJ, we 'were' celebrating spring, until Old Man Winter decided to give us a repeat performance ;(
