Treasure's & A Hint of Spring decorating!

Happy March 1st everyone!!!! I heard birds chirping on my walk today! Such a great sign!!!! After weeks of feeling crappy... Totally exhausted, I needed that sign of Spring!! I want color, warm breezes and open windows!!! So I changed out the top of the pie safe in the kitchen to Spring!!!

Finally... Here is a couple of my treasure's from my trip with hubby a couple of weeks ago... I so love everything child size! One, because it's small.... but how I love it... Found this old metal stove... I had found a whole set, walked away from it...kicking myself... might have to call, see if they still have it, and if they will ship???LOL.... And the child's metal dish drain, super cute!!!!

Still haven't found a home for this great wood primitive measure'r, I got at Wanda's... I am getting there... In a different shop found a butter mold for only$24! Never see them that cheap, so I HAD to get it!!!

Just a bit of fabric for creating! Time to get this butt back to work!!!!

Spring wreath from Renate's for the front door!

Love this saying... Pillow from Lebanon...

My rug hooking frame and my kit that I won from Margie in the fall.... I never win! But I did win the great primitive all American pocket from Brenda today too!!!! I am SOOOOO excited! Loved it!!!!

Finally......... That darn CROW of the "QUEEN'S".... I just never know where he is going to show up next....

opened my oven...there he was....LOL..... She should of never left him here!

Off to finish creating my huge carrots for Lemon Poppy Seeds... They will be up tonight, if you want to take a peek... They are over 23" long each.... YIKES!!! OLM

Love your Spring Display. Too cute. I have my crates down, just gota get busy. Was up half the night with storms coming through. I so hate the changing of the seasons because of all the bad weather. Think we share a lot in our choice of decor. I have a child's stove almost just like that and it is electric and still works. I got that same pillow for Christmas. Congrats. on your giveaway win. Love the giveaway that you won. Have fun creating.

Hi, Marie ~ I love your spring displays and all of the treasures you found on your trip. Awesome indeed! You had asked where I've been hiding but we are finally all well and I got my blogs updated. Hooray! you selected some great fabrics and I can't wait to see what you do with them.

I heard birds chirping the other day and I had to listen for a minute because it had been so long since I heard it, love that sound at the beginning of spring. We are experiencing warm breezes and open windows here today and it is lovely!

Love your display on top of the pie safe! I use one of those stand-up drying racks for my flea market set up, I never thought about using it in my home. Very cute how you have hooks hanging on it with enamelware, love that idea!

Oh girl, I know what you mean about child size, I'm a sucker for little things too, hehe. What is it about them? They are just so stinking cute! You have some wonderful little pieces!

Beautiful spring wreath for the door, just love those colors!

What a fun post Marie, I enjoyed visiting with you today~

the top of your pie safe looks very Spring like! Your wreath on the door too!
It will soon be here and we will all be happy.

Crow for dinner sounds good:) I won the other pocket and am so excited to get it . Congrats!!! The display on top of your pice safe is beautiful and so springish. Oh how I wish it would warm up here. It's sooooo cold.

Thank goodness you didn't turn the oven on to preheat it.
The little metal stove and dish drainer are so darn cute! You must get the rest if there's a set.
Oh, sorry. I get excited about vintage children's things!
p.s. Suzette says she misses you

Karen/My Colonial Home said...

23" carrots??? Really? What WERE you thinking??!! ;o) I gotta SEE those! Love the top of your pie safe - you have such wonderful treasures. That drying rack is amazing - and I am a big, big, sucker for boxes and trunks of any sort. Congratulations on your win from Brenda by the way....I was so hoping on that one - I love that arrangement. Gonna have to save some pennies I guess. Well, best be moving on - apparently I have been missing out on some things....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
