Happy Spring!


Spring has finally arrived here in Maine after a very long winter. The ground is thawing, the snow is melting, the crocuses are poking their heads up and the daffodils are sure to follow. Spring is one of our favorite seasons as we delight in checking daily to see what is waking up from its winter nap.

We just love the shot of these beautiful Tulips taken in our dining room. They are contained in an antique Pewter Pitcher resting on an old Penny Rug we found years ago at a local antiques show!
A collection of Sgraffito & Yellowware pieces are housed in the corner cupboard in the background.

Well, look at that! I'm in Maine as well but no signs of spring like you're enjoying. You must be farther south than we are.
I'm ready and waiting for spring to arrive. Enjoy your spring!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome & the wonderful comments that you have left so far. We have truly enjoyed reading each & every one. We are still new to Blogland so please bear with us as we find our way.


To those of you who asked what we applied to our walls to give them the "old appearance," stay tuned... We are very excited to share info on Plaster Wall Kits & a new line of paints and finish distressing kits in an upcoming blog entry.
