I decided our kitchen needed to celebrate the end of winter with a few Spring touches.
I added a few sprigs of faux Lavender to the shelf above the stove.

I’m having a big case of Spring Fever. I think it’s rampant around Blogville. So, what do you do if you have Spring Fever?
I turned one corner of my sunroom into Springtime. Birds and flowers fill this corner, and it doesn’t matter what the weather is, I have Spring in this corner.
I rounded up flowers and birds, and created a little Springtime for myself.
Please excuse the photography. Reflections in glass are even more difficult in a sun-filled room.
Years ago, I bought this painted tilt-top table at an antique store in St. Louis, Missouri.
I think my little Springtime corner may have done some good. Our temperatures here warmed up a lot today! I’m looking around the house to find some corners to turn into Spring. Maybe I’ll have a good influence on the weather if I put flowers, birds, and butterflies all over the house. I’m linking to Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life. I’m so glad you came to visit me today. laurie

I’m tellin’ ya, panic was setting in. After calming myself with a chocolate candy bar, I realized that there would be anarchy in the world if Blogger disappeared. (After all, surely there were millions of bloggers who felt the same loss that I was feeling~well, maybe a few bloggers felt it!) That is when I calmed down enough to be disgusted with myself~for being so addicted to Blogville AND for eating a whole 3 Musketeer (and also, one of those “nothing but sugar” candy orange slices)! So, in my self-disgust, I rationalized that I had lived without blogs for a lot of years, and I could surely do it again.
But, thank goodness I didn’t have to find out if I could do it again! I might have had to clean house, iron clothes, and go to bed at a reasonable hour! Whew! I am soooo relieved! Now I can go see what wonderful things my friends have been doing while Blogger, so rudely, interrupted us, and I can get on with this blog post.
I love Spring! It doesn’t take much to make me smile in the Springtime.
There is something about flowers popping up where they don’t belong that brings a to my face. I’ve always liked that old saying ~ “bloom where you are planted”, and I’m reminded of it every time I see these flowers between our bricks (which obviously need a good cleaning and leveling!)
Lately, seeing sunlight coming into my home really makes me , since this Spring has brought a lot of dreary rainy days.
This little white picket fence picture, crafted by my neighbor with dried pansies, makes me .
All of the blooming flowers make me , but especially the peonies. Each Spring, I plant a “cutting” garden. When the flowers bloom in the cutting garden, I hesitate to cut them to bring in the house, because I enjoy seeing them in the flowerbed (I know, I’m crazy). The only flower I don’t hesitate to cut is the peony, because I know that the weight of the flower will soon bring the flower to the ground, and it is more beautiful in a vase than bent over on the ground outside.
Every time I look at our big antique Hunter Zephair fan, it reminds me of my childhood, and I smile. This fan, along with several others like it, hung on the walls in the cafeteria of a local school . We purchased this one (which still works great) when they remodeled the cafeteria, and now I wish we had purchased all of them.
Although it holds no memories, our bright red, reproduction table top fan also makes me . (Yes, we do have central air conditioning, but there is just something about a table top fan that makes me feel so laid back. I love to just relax and enjoy the breeze and the sound of a table top fan.)
Please go visit the other blogs that are showing their favorite things. Thank you for coming to visit me. laurie
