I remember taking the dog and the garbage out on Wednesday night this past week. It was dark out, maybe about 40 degrees, and the pavement was wet (our latest snow was still melting)… but I noticed immediately that the air felt “fresh”… not heavy and damp… and I thought, FINALLY it feels like Spring! The last few days since then have been a delight – although I’m stuck inside working throughout the week, I’ve appreciated the chance to sit out on the screened porch when I come home. Today it’s rainy but the temps will climb into the upper 50’s so I’m very happy about that! I plan to do a little junking here after awhile, but first I just wanted to share with you my very simple “Grandma’s table” – which I’ve updated for Spring.
If you’ve seen my last few posts featuring this little table, you’ll notice that it’s pretty bare – it just feels lighter and fresher, like the air on Wednesday night!
I’ve temporarily replaced the pink frothy tablecloth with this vintage print cloth which captures Spring colors, and set out just a few treasures.
My pretty new bust (that sounds a little odd – no, I am not showing off my decolletage!)…
… and Mr. Duck atop a selection of “Victoria” magazines appropriate for the current (and approaching) seasons –
In particular, this issue from 2010 just delights me with is Spring colors, beautiful flowers, and heavenly strawberry dessert!
The throw blanket and selection of pillows seen in the background are a nod to the fact that it can still be chilly even if things are (finally!) warming up… but I’ll be changing those out in the near future. I’m going to try a slipcover for that loveseat and try to “summer things up” a bit!
I will be linking this simple, happy little table to Marty’s wonderful Tabletop Tuesday party over at A Stroll Thru Life!
Now to head outside, tramp around in the mud, and see what greenery is popping up!
