“Some old fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat.” – Laura Ingalls Wilder
Last week we had some really beautiful days here. I pick up Davis and Maddie after school. When Davis got in the car he asked “Oma, can you feel it and smell it?” I answered yes knowing he was talking about Spring. We had recently had conversation about birds already scouting out places for their nests. What an absolute joy to hear a question posed so beautifully. I added “Spring might be teasing us a bit because it is 31 days til Spring”.
My tablescape is a little prelude to Spring.
I have set a table for four using green place mats and pink napkins with a touch of silver.
This pattern is called “Grace’s Teaware”. Perfect for a tea party.
I have used these sweet pink and amber glasses for sweet tea. Both look so pretty with these plates.
These are dried hydrangeas from my garden surrounded by colors that match the plates.
See the little green mason jar behind the rabbit’s ear….belonged to Mother and has a bow of white hearts around the neck of the jar. I try to add a little something in almost every post that belonged to her.
He looks really happy among the pretties.
I added this photo because it really speaks Spring. It is hanging in my breakfast area.
“Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?” – Neltje Blanchan
Davis, I say the answer is no to this question. We can smell it and feel it but we can’t quite describe this time of year that God spoke into being. Let’s feel the warmth on our skin and smell the fragrance that words fail to describe.
Thank you, friends for your visit.
