A Touch of Spring - even though it is snowing in CNY

I am SO anxious for spring.  Some bloggers are showing off their daffodils and spring blooms - we are still shoveling snow!

So, this is the closest to spring flowers I can bring you:


I am using dinner dishes from Marshall's and luncheon plates from Mackenzie-Childs:


A simple brunch will be served - quiche, coffee and juice...


...and fresh fruit:




I placed my artificial basil plant in a squash pot as a centerpiece:


I recently purchased the chair covers at the CTS for only $3.50 ea:


This is the reverse side of the table band I made in December:


You can see how it is tied in the back:


Can you see how white it is outside - it's still snowing!


I am on the hunt for more pieces of the M-C Buttercup pattern - it has been retired for years.  Isn't it funny when you start to search for something, that you can never find it?


Time to put the quiche in the oven!

  14. Hey, Patti! I want to tell you just how slick I think that table band is. I just can't even begin to tell you how that changes the whole game! It's just a whole other level of elegance because it is such an unexpected and fresh touch!

    It's snowing here, too. We're supposed to really get dumped on again this weekend. Ugh! We may not even see sunshine again until next Friday!!!!!! :-( So I feel ya, sister! Hang in there! We'll get there yet! :-) Have a great weekend!!!

  17. Wow, it's hard to imagine snow! Not to rub it in, but we've had a gorgeous week and the bluebonnets are blooming. Looks like you're making it spring indoors, though, with your pretty table. I love that table band -- so creative!

  19. This is delightful! You have inspired me to make one of those bands. I will think abut it, but will I do it? Some of use aren't as "sewingly" gifted as you are!
