A View Of Spring

Can you believe that the weatherman is predicting snow showers over the next few days?!? I'm tired of seeing a dreary view out my window!
So I gathered all my pretty clear vases and lined my kitchen window sill. I added moss and faux bulbs.
Then, just for fun, and a punch of color, I added a vibrant red vase with a real flower. Now, when I look out my window, there is a view of spring.You could use real bulbs (even the dollar store sells them right now). If you're too impatient to wait for them to grow, make paper leaves and glue them onto the bulb. Or substitute speckled blue &/or brown eggs for your view of Spring.

Beautiful. I love the spring!

Such a precious idea...I am almost afraid to mention that, out here in West Texas, we had 88 degrees yesterday and I am seeing little blooms everywhere. Bad part, tho...in the spring, we have terrible sand storms...so...I don't like spring very much..but sure love summer/

I love that idea... if they are real, they'll be beautiful!
We have had 70's+ for a week in Denver and it beats a record of 137 years. Now we're expecting rain/snow this weekend, ugh!
Stay warm!

I just came upon your site and must say this looks like a site I will visit often.
I too live where they are calling for snow this weekend but I'm not going to let it get to me, darn it. Spring is so right around the corner, I just know it.

What a great idea! I was so sad the other day when I looked out and there was snow again! I am so ready for Spring!

Have a wonderful weekend!

The dollar store sells bulbs? I'll have to check that out! Everything looks very pretty and we all certainly could use a punch of spring these days.

My mom bought 4 Amarylis this past week and gave me 2 of them so I'll be enjoying those late blooms : )

By the way, love your header picture too!

I love your "fake" bulbs on the windowsill. That is so adorable. This is the only house I have ever had that does not have a kitchen window! I will just enjoy yours from afar!
