The First Day of Spring

Pin It
Wow! Is it already March 20th?  The first day of Spring?
Spring is my favorite season. 
 I love to see all the trees budding, the flowers blooming, hear the birds singing and to see a little more of the sun shining.

Ever since I was a little girl I would love to go out into the yard to pick flowers and bring them in and arrange them in vases.  I would sometimes pretend that I worked in a florist.  As I got a little older, I was asked to help "do" the flowers for a wedding or two.....

 Anyway, our Camellia bushes this year are FULL of blooms and I could not resist cutting some branches and bringing them in for a center piece on the table.

These were not skillfully arranged, they were simply placed in this ironstone pitcher however they fit.  I like the more natural look this created.  It looks much like they do on the bushes themselves.

So here we have some of my favorite things.  Ironstone, rusty metal, primitive wood, cement, vintage linen & lace and of course flowers.

The wood beekeepers's tray came from Atelier de Campagne.

That cool little metal tray has been sold already. 
 I know the new owner will enjoy it as much as I did.

Do you love Spring also?

This centerpiece has already been changed out.  Things sell and I get to create a new one!
If you ever see something here that you like, don't wait too long to come into the store. 
 We are located,
3750 Taylor Road
 Loomis, Ca. 95650
Inside the High Hand fruit sheds.

Tuesday - Saturday 10 - 5.

Thre's nothing like fresh flowers to make your home inviting. My camillas aren't doing well this year, for some reason. So far I've just plucked one stem, but it was gorgeous!
