Welcome Spring! Let the Spring Shows Begin!

Welcome Spring! We are all so ready for spring, I think all around us. What a winter it has been. I ventured out to Auntie Joy's first sale of the season, what a treat.
Joy and I, I purchased this blue enamel pitcher and Joy gave me the daffodils. Joy and I go way back, I met Joy at The Oregon Garden Quilt show a few years ago, she gave me the confidence to start a blog, the rest is history, I am so ever grateful to her for all the blessings that have been giving me through this blog world. Thank you Joy!
Daffodils in all their glory in this flower stand.
Joy creates some of the greatest necklaces and bracelets, one of which I treated myself to.
How fun would it be to wear this to a girlie party!
These lockers sure evokes memories of days gone by, like High School, how about you?
Enamel ware I can not resist. Add some daffodils and they just pop!
Mr. Dave Joy's right hand man, what a special guy she has there. Joy will be at The Monticello Spring Garden Show, be sure and check her space out.
A visit to Monticello Antique Mall would not disappoint, as I write this they are preparing for their spring garden show, be sure and check it out.
Some one builds these great garden potting sheds for Monticello, you must check them out.
White with pink, certainly is my weakness. How about yours?
White ironstone never seems to go out of style. I have a great collection of pitchers.
I am so ready for some porch time, how about you?
A impromptu show from Barn House Boys would not disappoint, with Natalie adding her special touch to this show. This would be the start of our soon to be spring sales. What a great uplifting event. They held their show in this 1912 Venersborg School house, a perfect setting, don't you think?
Burlap, wood, linens and glass were all present at this great impromptu show.
Love, love these linen towels.
Oh to have a farm table, someday when I can remodel my family room and kitchen.
Linens and crocks some of my favorites.
I don't think many people can pass up these aqua canning jars, they have so many uses.
Love the stripes and the green jade dishes.
Be sure and check out The Garden Show at Monticello starting this Friday the 8th of April going through the May 30th. Enjoy!
