I was REALLY ready for Spring.  You would think I would be out cutting flowers from the garden.  We do have some flowers in the yard, but I’m enjoying seeing them out there too much to cut them to bring inside. So, what’s a girl to do?  Bring out the faux flowers, of course.

On each end of the buffet in our family room, demijohns are growing faux flowers out of the tops.

fr wood flwrs
I’m loving these little twine covered pots, filled with wood roses that I recently ordered from Zulily Discounts.

On the buffet in the sunroom, frogs are leaping around in the flowers.

Mr. and Mrs. Frog are ready to soak up some rays by the pool.

Herbert, my studious frog is soaking up knowledge from the wrong end!

Jiggs, is casually serving tea.  (Don’t tell Jiggs--He’s not really a frog. He’s a teapot.)

Anybody up for a game of leap frog?  I have to admit that it’s been awhile since I did any leaping.  I did recently leap for joy when the doctor said that our grandson, Cooper, had gained enough weight that he no longer has to have a doctor’s appointment every week.  Thank you for hopping in to see me today.  laurie

I’m linking to Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Through Life and Whimsy Wednesday at The NY Melrose Family.

Love the Spring/Frog vignettes! :-D I don't bring in a Spring bloom in the house very often due to the pollen. I brought in a sprig of azaleas and put in a bud vase last weekend and had to get it out the next day. :/
Great news on Cooper!!!

Well, it's nice to know you can dream of spring somewhere! Tonite in MN we are getting 5-8" of heavy white stuff! I cannot believe this spring that refuses to come!

First let me say how very happy I am that Cooper has gained weight and is doing so well. I know you are so happy.
Love your Spring decor and the frogs. The two rose arrangements are very pretty.
Have a wonderful week Laurie.

Your springiness is contagious! Cute frogs always put me in the mood for outdoor fun!
I still do not have flowers & ferns planted or hung because we may get another freeze this week. I can't believe it!!!

So happy to hear about Cooper's good news!

You certainly look ready for Spring. I'm still tweaking.

Love your little collection of froggies. So cute! I'm a big Kermit fan, but Herbert has really set my heart a flutter.:)

What a huge praise for Cooper!! I'll bet the whole family did a little hopping for joy on that one! God keeps answering prayer, one day at a time.

And your springtime tweaking made me smile. I have been tweaking too. Mine just never looks quite as tweaked as yours does.

Hi Laurie, Such wonderful news about your grandson Cooper. That is certainly reason to leap for joy.
Love your springtime frogs. So cute and brings a smile. Spring has sprung at your lovely home!
I have been tweaking too. Enjoy!
Hugs, CM
