Welcome Spring!

I'm sitting here with the wind rattling the windows and lightning flashing all around. It's Spring in Iowa, alright! 

I added some Spring blossoms to my watering can that I found in the barn last spring. I love the look! 

I'm not one to change my decor seasonally. I might grow into it, but once I find  a look I like, I usually leave it for a couple years. Like this display on a bookshelf I pretend is a hutch in the kitchen. The window and watering can are from the barn, the dessert rose dishes belonged to my Grandma, the birdhouse was a thriftstore find that's at 11 or so years old, and the crooked-looking (I swear it's not!) topiary is something I put together from Michael's back in 2000.

Cuz I know you care! (wink) 

I made my son a strawberry-rhubarb crisp for his birthday. It's our rhubarb, but our strawberries aren't producing yet. Can't wait till they do!

How is Spring treating you?


  1. Yum! Strawberry-rhubarb crisp sounds wonderful! You'll have to share your recipe sometime. Love the new branches! Very pretty! Thanks for sharing.

  2. our lilac is about to bloom! Can't wait!
