Is it Spring yet?
It's nearly March and it seems as though everyone except mother nature is ready for this cold weather to lift, and warm temperatures to start moving in.
This morning it's 21 degrees below zero. And that's before the wind chill!
However, to make the weather a little more bearable, the grocery store had buckets of beautiful Spring bulbs this week.
My bright, yellow Daffodils remind me that despite how deceiving the weather currently is, warm Spring weather is right around the corner.
Another discovery while shopping was this antique frame that I found while looking for a light fixture with my mom. It was in an antique shop down the road from them called The Duke and Duchess.
The painting that I got for Christmas from Ryan fit perfectly in it. It's now beside my chair in the living room. At $35 I thought it was a good find.
You can read more about the beautiful painting here.
I also found some Hyacinths, which always fill the house with the scent of a garden blooming in early Spring.
While cleaning out an area of our basement, I came across a collection of small gold frames I've collected from thrift stores over the years. At 50 cents each, a small collection of them isn't expensive, but they make a pretty display on our dresser.
And our home isn't the only place that's ready for the arrival of Spring!
I was excited to see that my parents had started setting up the shop. It will be opening soon, and it's coming together so nicely.
The Oxalis (Four Leaf Clovers) are already out on display among some of the beautiful antique pieces they've been collecting.
