Celebrate Spring!


Hi everyone!

Yay, it is officially Spring. Now if Michigan will acknowledge that it is suppose to give us Spring-like weather, I will be a happy camper! I know that so many of you blogging ladies out there live in the South and have already seen your flowers bloom and trees budding but, we just finally got rid of the snow around here. So, I still have to use my imagination to picture beautiful flowers blooming. Or maybe look at a few pictures from our yard last year.

  33. Your photos just pop! It is so nice to see some spring around. Such pretty tablescapes -- love the blue camping one. Nothing is in bloom here in my part of Utah yet....we are like Michigan in that regard. Joni

  35. Diane you have so many wonderful images, I'm not sure which I love the most. Could it be the cone of Daffodils? or the wonderful majolica type tea pot on the pink table or the Blackberry plates? I don't know!!! But I can tell you I love the purple flowered tea set. Watch out on my blog for next months birthday tea party in our marquee, as i'm going to use the same design, two tiered cake stand. My 15 year old daughter has decided she wants an old English tea party for her birthday!! Hurray, there is hope for the next generation after all!! Jo x
