Pastel Vignette...

With Minnesota still being held in the tight grip of Winter, I am constantly longing for Spring to get here and for the long, hot days of Summer even more so.

In addition to the warmer weather, I always look forward to Spring as that is when I will be more apt to find some pastel lovelies to add to my collections. To me, nothing is better than the softest shades of pink, blue and yellow and Springtime/Easter is the best time to find them, whether it be in the thrift stores, antique malls, or the craft stores like JoAnn's or Michael's where they may have an isle or two filled with yummy pastels to decorate your home for Spring and Easter.

Here's just a small sample of my lovely pastels that I display all year around...

Now what's not to like about that?? Looks like pure heaven if you ask me...

Have a great day!!!

Pretty, pretty, pretty! the light blue in that vase (?) is so soft and dreamy.

Yes, we're definitley having winter here, too! For some reason, I'm having an easier time of it this Winter. I do have a warmer house, and I'm healthier this year... I think another reason I'm not longing for Spring as much as usual is because we're putting the house up for sale in the Spring and I am DREADING that! ☺

Did you find a chair for your mom?
