Are you as excited to celebrate spring as I am?



The weather here has been so beautiful lately, we are {finally} outside




in the morning with our coffee and at lunch time for a quick salad.



Antique French Watering Can



The garden is starting to come back to life,



and every time a flower lifts its pretty head



and says “hello! I’m here!” it makes me so happy.



Antique Hand Woven Splint Basket










If you came here via Pam, Mary or Shirley, I hope you will enjoy your visit.



And please sign up to receive my posts in your email,



the little box is on the top right corner.  : )



I’d love to keep in touch!





For this little “drinks” table setting in the garden



I layered a small circular table with an antique French sheet



and gathered some of my favorite antique French pieces for the rest.




What could be better for a spring or Easter table?




Country Gardener Towels


The flowers are simply arranged in an antique French enamelware pitcher.



They are all my spring favorites:



tulips, freesia, wax flowers and statice.


Yours too?



Antique Hand Painted French Enameled Pitcher




Keeping the flowers all to one color family always works.









The tulips are such a beautiful color, aren’t they?



And those freesia smell heavenly.






Using French Country antiques in the garden



is always a pretty idea.



Antique Old Paris Compote




Our Country Gardener Tea Towels {using as napkins!} with their charming design



of rabbits, wheel barrows, watering cans, cabbages



and seedlings add an amusing touch.







This arrangement is one everyone can do.



I cut almost all the flowers the same length



and let the tulips go where they wanted.



{not that there is a choice!}






I hope that as you are planning your family’s Easter



you will pick up a little bundle or two of fresh flowers



and arrange them to your liking



flowers make everything more beautiful!
