"Spring is..."

*

*
Hello my friends...I hope that you're having a marvelous Monday!
*
Today I thought I would share a Spring vignette from last year. It has lots of pretty springtime blues and greens. Hope you enjoy!
*
*
A Springtime Vignette

*
A vignette I created on my dining room table to "Welcome Spring".
*
As you can see, most of Spring's pretty pastels are present here...soft pinks, buttery yellows, beautiful blues, and gorgeous greens! Spring is when life's alive in everything!!!
*
The floral placemat is one of six that I made a few years back...perfect for a Springtime table...don't you think? In the background is a leafy ivy...for that needed green! We can't have Spring without those greens! I also added a couple of silver candleholders with white pillar candles...and two mercury glass candleholders. Two sweet white birds have graced us with their presence...front and center. On the right hand side of the vignette, I added a pretty Spring plate with a little bunny and his watering can (a Debbie Mumm design). On the left hand side sits a glass egg with a little bunny inside!
*
A cloche on a pedestal with a little nest and eggs and two bluebirds is the starring attraction in this springtime vignette!
*

*
A close-up of the little bird family! I tied a pretty blue and white gingham bow around the top of the cloche. I thought this ribbon was so pretty...it has tiny little yellow flowers on it!
*

*
I love Debbie Mumm designed dishware. This pretty dessert plate has the sweetest bunny with a watering can...ready to water all those springtime flowers! I love the border of this plate with its green and pink stripes and black and white checkerboard pattern!
*

*
I found two of these beautiful eggs at Hobby Lobby last year. They have the cutest vintage pictures on them...this one has a little girl holding her bunny! The egg has a sparkly, diamond dust coating...so pretty!
*

*
The glass egg container that sits on the left hand side of the vignette. I just adore this little white bunny that is sitting on a pretty blue flower! Look...the bunny is holding a little ladybug! Too cute! Hehe!

Mary Ellen said...

Chari your vignette is so cheery! You always do such neat things with your cloches! I love the bunny plate too!

HAs the snow melted off your way- yesterday melted alot of ours off but it sounds like more is coming :(
I hope to get out to the land and check on my bees today since it is supposed to stay nice. Was to do that this morning but a friend who lives about 25 miles up the mountains had her truck die on her and no one to help so DH and I went. She has 4 grandboys that needed to get to school- it was a beautiful drive!

Hey Chari,
You are the best cloche designer! I love the blue birds, the greenery and the ribbons! Just the perfect touch for spring! These are gorgeous photos my friend, you are talented! Guess what? I have little green things peeking through the dirt. They are very small, but I can see them. Dan and I spent the week-end in the cities and had a great time. Hope all is well with you. Are you packing for Vegas yet? Big Hugs, Cindy

Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?

My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no back up.
Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
