Are you ready to welcome spring??

I don't mind the cooler weather we have in Houston; however lately, we've not had a lot of cold weather; in fact, our weather has teased us with more spring like temperatures.  And of course the craft stores are full of spring flowers, ribbons and such anyway........I told someone the other day, if you want Easter things (like faux rye grass for decorating with plastic know in my business I have to think longer lasting displays for home parties!)  Anyway, I told someone that if you want to buy Easter things you better get them, because by the time March and Easter are actually here, they are going to have red, white and blue for the 4th of July already on the shelves and the Easter things will be sold out or picked over!

So I got a few new Willow House products in the other day, and I was itching to try them out!  And my front door needed a new door decoration.  So I took my new Willow Welcome Basket and went to Michael's.  I found some lovely faux flowers, some cute ribbon and came home to get busy.  So here's my newest you like it???

It comes with it's own little slate chalkboard, which I wrote on with a chalk pen....which reminds me, I forgot to get another white one....looks like another trip to the hobby store!!
Next week, I'll show you some ideas for our Grand Monarch Lantern!!!

That is so cute, Suzanne. You are great at flower arranging. Those flowers look so fresh. You are right about seasons and buying early. In my sewing business it is the same. Christmas in July is common in fabric stores.
You've got a jump on spring and I love it.

Suzanne, that looks gorgeous. It has been strangely warm here. I worked in the yard the other day and some of my plants are putting on new growth. This time last year we were in the midst of a huge snow storm!
