Think Spring

I know, in most parts of the US Spring is the furthest thing from your mind.  The stores are displaying it, but you're just not feeling it yet.  Well I was thinking Spring last weekend when temps in TX hit 75.  And my kitchen table got the first Spring treatment this house has seen this year.

The Nester posted some great ideas a couple days ago on using your dishes in your decor.  Go check it out here.  And during Transforming Homes home tour last week, I found this darling idea to nestle your twine balls in candle holders at Whisperwood Cottage (8th picture down).  By combining these two great ideas I have a fun table all set for Spring.







This is my grandmother's white stoneware, mixed with some of Target's Easter plate collection (from the $1 aisle a few years ago).  Aren't the egg cups darling?

So yeah, I'm feeling all flowery and ready for capris, and then we get THIS yesterday!




Snow in TX.  A few inches, even.  Isn't that poetic justice at it's best?
