Happy Spring!

Happy Spring!
We have finally entered spring and in my area we are experiencing an unusual taste of June weather today - Sunny and in the 70s!

We have endured a terrible winter and I'm so glad for spring to be here. As a tribute to spring and some talented Etsy sellers, I'd like to share with you some of my favorites that say "spring" to me.

The Wind in the Willows from DornickDesigns. Just the name screams spring to me and I love the colors and the tree ready to burst with green.

Talk about green - don't you love this contrast of green and blue?

Vintage Compote from GingersGirl, a great new shop on Etsy.

How about this wonderful bird house?

It is so peaceful to watch and listen to the birds in warm weather. I would love to have this awesome bird house (just look at the detail) in my yard! This Primitive Chicken Hen House, by Birdhouseaccents is one of my favorite bird houses on Etsy.

Look at this adorable fairy window -

This window with flower box is just one of the many neat little fairy or gnome architectural pieces from NothinButWood. You won't be disappointed with their creative pieces.
I just love this funky ring holder and purchased one similar to it last year from TwistedRiverClay. I love having it on my window sill in the kitchen to put my rings when I do the dishes.

What a colorful spring pendant this is, Bloom Where You Are Planted by Tekaandzoe.

And last but not least, Karen Fields always delights with her bright and cheery paintings. My latest favorite of hers is Tree of Life Birds. Such magic and whimsy with Karen's use of color.

I hope you have enjoyed some of my favorites. Are any of your favorites inspired by spring?
Happy Spring my friends!
