Spring Is In the Air
Hello! It's Tuesday evening already and I felt like I needed to blog...even though I have nothing really exciting to blog about. I thought I would share a few moments from my day if that's OK. Florida weather has been so beautiful this week. I have been able to wear capris again which is my favorite thing to wear to work. Now I just need a pedicure so I can wear sandals and I will be a happy camper!
I had to run out to my car earlier at work to get something and I noticed bees buzzing around the
weeds flowers so I tried to snap a picture. Hard to see him, but look where the arrow is pointing. A sure sign spring is almost here!
I had a really good day with my kinders today. They are learning so much and have come so far in the time I have had them. It is amazing how much little ones learn and grow. It is parent conference time and I have had two after work each day this week. They have gone very well. Anywho, I walked in my door after work to this sight. The hubby borrowed some containers from his mom for me to pack up my kitchen! We had plans to start renovation Sunday evening, but wouldn't you know, the fuel pump in his truck went out so that meant he had to fix his truck, so that caused a slight delay in renovation. He finished it this evening, so hopefully we can start tomorrow evening. I can't wait!!!
I was also greeted by these beautiful camellias on my coffee table. They won't be blooming much longer, so I picked a few to enjoy indoors.
After they quit blooming, I will just have to enjoy these beauties instead! I stopped by the local grocery store after work yesterday and it looked like spring had exploded in front of the store! They had annuals priced at $1 each so I bought 15 of them and potted them today after work. Such bright and cheery colors!
I love the purple and yellow together.
Such a happy flower!
They look even prettier in the bright pots...turquoise, coral, and aqua blue. Did you notice my gazebo in the background here? My daddy built that for the hubby and I to get married in, so it's almost 27 years old! It needs some work done to it, but I can't bear the thought of tearing it apart. It is surrounded by all my camellias.
I placed one of the pots under my maple tree which is in front of where I park. I forgot to snap a picture of the other two pots, but they are by my front steps. I will enjoy being welcomed home by these colorful beauties after work each day.
While Miranda was here over the weekend, we had to run to the grocery store so of course I ran into the thrift store while we were out and about. I hadn't been to this one in several weeks and I always find something good when I do visit. I thought these milk glass dishes were very pretty. They probably used to have another piece or two with them but these four fit together perfectly and will be useful in the craft room or for fruit & veggie platters for showers or parties.
They have pretty scalloped edges and no chips at all.
I also found a pretty set of vintage salt and peppers for just $1! The gold filigree around the bottom edges is so pretty. I know these are old because they have those yellow age spots on them.
The tops have a pretty floral design.
This pattern looks so familiar to me. I am thinking someone had this pattern when I was a child. Does anyone know what it is called? There are no markings on them at all.
I know this wasn't a very exciting post, so than you if you stuck around to read it. If you know me at all, you know my blog is an online diary of sorts for me and one day I will enjoy looking back over it and reading about these every day moments that bring me much happiness. I appreciate your stopping by for a visit. I hope to be able to share some kitchen news soon!
Until next time.....
