An abundance of spring at my doorstep...

What a wonderful response to my tea party invitation!! I cannot wait to see you all here on the 21st for some fabulous festivities! I'm excited to see what surprises you will have on your blogs for your visiting friends. What a way to usher in the first day of spring!! See post below (March 12th) for more details... I've continued to be absolutely giddy by the **amazing** artwork that is showing up in my mailbox. The gorgeous birdy above is by Dawn. Love the color combination!!

This party hat is by the wonderfully whimsy Melfie.
This vintage-inspired Welcome Spring banner now hangs in my front window. It was created by Michelle. Gorgeous!
This truly amazing frayed rose sits perfectly a top a vintage saucer. Miz Smoochie Lips created it and has a tutorial on her blog here. Amazing!

Wonderful Bonnie in South Africa sent this beautiful handmade bag and the little chicks below. Love the hot pink handle!
You really can't get much cuter than this little guy by Jenny (Ms Polka Dot Pixie). He is so cheery, I can't help but smile every time I look at him!
Daisy made this whimsy little man peeking out from behind his mushroom. So cute!! Thank you all very, very much for the amazing swaps! I am humbled and honored to own a piece of your art. Thanks for bringing spring into my home:)

Hi! I just discovered your super cute blog and was wondering what you have found the best way is to find out about upcoming estate sales. Do you just depend on the newspaper?

I am coming to the tea party definitely! I am so amazed at all the different takes on spring people have. It still boggles my mind how you can throw a concept out and you never seem to get duplicates. People amaze me!
