An Outdoor and Indoor Spring Metamorphosis!

Oh Happy Days!!  It hit a whopping 65 degrees here today!  And for the first time, in almost two weeks we saw the sun!  The snow, which gradually had been melting nearly all disappeared!   I spent the day enjoying the weather and adding a few touches of spring to my home! 

I took a picture of a cardinal yesterday.   The one side of our yard slopes, and we get all the runoff from the woods.  See all of the snow still around him.

Here is that same area today! Go snow, Go!

And over here.  Just a wee bit of snow left around the edge of the woods.

And with the snow melting and the sun shining I decided to add a little Easter and Spring to my window ledge.

A homemade Easter Tree.  I spray painted the container white, grabbed some old branches, added some eggs and ribbon and for hardly any moola, I have an Easter Tree.

Here, I used some ribbon and flowers to make a springy arrangement in the little watering can.

I added this ceramic bunny that I won last year from Gloria @ Happy to Be and topped it off with the tag that Karen from Some Days are Diamonds so lovingly made!  Thanks Ladies!!

I love that these window's have such wide ledges!  They are great for vignettes and I love to change them to match the seasons!   On this one, I used a little tray, added my apple tea-pot, a little white cup and saucer, .70 cents at TJ Maxx and the spoon that Sherry made for all of us at our recent luncheon. 

I recently found an old book of songs for a mere $2.  They seem to be all the rage right now and this book has lot's of neat old songs in it.  My Mom has always loved this one.  She has many relatives in Kentucky and one of her dreams is to go to the Kentucky Derby.  I found the frame in a free box at a garage sale and I added some lace, buttons and tea dyed the little flowers!  I have  plans for more crafts with some of the other pages.  My Mom liked it and now she is dreaming of the Kentucky Derby!

Well that's it for my little bit of Spring-i-fying!
 I am adding to the following blog parties!
 Met. Monday @ Between Naps on the Porch
Tabletop Tuesday @  A Stroll thru Life.

Thank-you Ladies!

  16. Beautiful Spring metamorphosis, Cindy.

    When we drove across the bridge at Jefferson City, on our way home from the lake yesterday, the Missouri River was really up. Haven't seen the Mississippi, yet, but I imagine it is up too. I told J, the snow must be melting up north.:-)

  17. Isn't it grand when you can see bare ground again? You Mama will treasure your Kentucky creation, it's just stunning. I love your little Easter tree but oh darlin' that little caged up bunny is to die for. Just sweet, Cindy. I always want to pack a bag and trot right over when I visit here.

    God bless and have a Marvelous Monday!!!
